    Thanks Matt.

    Great idea this YouTube thing!
    By the way, the 3reef.com family was mentioned in my brief video description.......just couldn't help myself. ;)

    Yup.....that was my hawk fish "Gonzo".

    I'm still tinkering with video compression because I wasn't completely happy with the image quality. When and if I "hit the nail on the head" regarding compression I will pass it on to all the 3reef members who would like to video their tanks. It's really not as easy as it sounds.

    Cheers :)

    Yeah I wasn't exactly happy with my compression. I will be curious to hear any better ways to compress you come up with.

    Be sure to join the 3reef group on Google. I believe I added your video already.

    confusion reigns

    Tom I deleted some of the confused posts.

    You were not using the youtube button.

    I guess I need to spell this out a bit...

    [​IMG] <-- THIS IS THE BUTTON! :)

    Then put the ID of your video in between the tags like this:

    Code:
    [ youtube ]iW7dtZIwISA[/ youtube ]

    -------------

    EDIT:
    Tom it would be cool if you started a new thread with your video and with 'video' in the title. That would help promote this feature too. The more video posts the better! ;)

    Umm. yeah. .. that is if you figure it out! :)

    THANKS!!!!!!!

    Otty you have the same wavemaker I do. But you have corals, and I dont, so I cant see how it works. Looks good to me!!
