Ive been to Chicken
Still asking me to log in...
Dunno what to say other than apologise for another technical facepalm of a work in progress LOL.
Seriously, I went into smugmug and copied the link to the video like EmmBeeDee said. Looks like you can see it but it only plays if you hover your mouse over it and no audio... or sign in.
I just use smugmug to store a few things in case of a computer crash and it works fine for that. I'm looking for an easy place to make a few short vids and send the links to family and friends. Once I get that working I'll try some simple editing.
My problem with using the formal hosts like youtube, Vimeo etc. is it's overkill for my humble efforts plus you can't use any soundtrack you want.
After the smugmug fail I discovered google play and tried to do something with that. It looks like the D2D one I linked through Google play is actually working so I'll try to put the Chicken one there later. As they say on the news: "More at 11:00"...
My Vimeo and youtube works ok but a few of my videos seem to be missing now. I haven't uploaded to either in years.
I have video capability on my SmugMug too but almost never use it.
You've got some pretty good stuff done there. I don't have the pro package on smug mug so just playing around with iMovie to try and figure stuff out. Is it just me or do you think smugmug won't let folks look at your stuff there unless they create an account or pay to download? After Ross had problems I checked with my brother at home and he couldn't see my stuff unless he created an account. He didn't do that but I can send him vids right from my laptop so it don't matter.
Edit: The stuff I read on youtube says they won't play your vids now if you don't have approval to use the soundtrack you have on it...
I tested this in the test thread so all good, no log-in required.
I know it's a rough video but you can see it's big country and the big twins worked well on the main routes:
There's lots of decent soundtrack music you can download royalty free. Here's one of many.
Yeah that would explain my vids being gone for sure. But how do I get them back?
Can you see my SmugMug? I have a few galleries on there that are private. https://skibum69.smugmug.com
I can see them...
(Don't know if I am seeing all of them or not.)
I actually went for a breakfast ride to Manitowish Waters yesterday.
The Autumn colors are spectacular, and very near peak.
Today will be the last of a very warm stretch. Things will go downhill starting tomorrow...
The leaves are just starting to turn here.
Reminded me of riding the BurPenn in the late 60's before it was paved... except the BurPenn Hwy, drivers and weather was much worse. LOL
Thanks Mike. Definitely bookmarked for future reference.
Good, most of my pics are public.
Went to work and back. Nice weather. Nothing else to report.
Stephanie and I went for a picnic to Davis Lock in Elgin, Ontario today. Temperature ranged from 12-20, and we had some rain at the end of the day, but it was great to be out on our two 650 Suzukis, her DR650 and my VStrom.
Very interesting to see that the Vstrom uses less fuel than the DR for the same mileage, considering the V and I weigh quite a bit more than the DR and her.
I helped two snapping turtles cross the road, though they weren’t together. This one was on the road through Murphy’s Point, a place we took Murph through on his last trip here.
A Harley dude stopped to help, but in the end I just had to pick the turtle up and move him along. Little bastard tried to pee on me. Ingrate!
Stephanie said I should post the turtle story here since NL doesn't have turtles.
He wasn’t small.
No, but Snappers can get much bigger than that. It was about 12” across the shell. Much bigger than the one we showed to @Scooter when we took him for a ride here in 2014.
Very cool, I first saw one on the bike when I took a wrong turn near Antigonish, NS on my 2017 Trans-Lab trip. You have some nice Fall colors too.
They are ugly, aren’t they?
