I have an 8mm (IIRC) Samsung? (Frys special, $299) video camera (&
microphone) I've used to record svlug meetings before (couldn't make
enough time to get them digitized on line then).  Not sure I can find my
dc power supply for it - gotta dig through stuff!

It's probably easiest for this meeting to videocam record the talk,
cause that I have done, & Daniel & I haven't yet got the webcam
recording working yet.

Does anyone else have a videocam we can use for his meeting? (With power

I have a pcmcia video digitizer, but for recordings > aprox 10 minutes,
the audio playback gets out of sync.  What video/audio format can keep
audio & video in sync for long (>10 minute) videos?

[I'm sending this to the volunteers list, along with my original
message. Am taking (was it Paul's? advice) - to move this topic to a
larger audience, so that more people can have input/awareness.]
