HD: Visiting Grandpa

Bringing my kids -- Katie (11), Zac (6) and Alex (4) -- to visit my dad in Aina Haina. My first iMovie '09 project, taking clips from a Sanyo Xacti HD700 and exporting via QuickTime via custom HD settings.

Visiting Grandpa from hawaii on Vimeo.

The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (1280x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.

You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and Blip TV. And several versions of this video (including high-definition MPEG-4 and DivX) can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.

Subscribe to the HawaiiVog video podcast via iTunes, or in the media aggregator of your choice via RSS.
