Oh my God! What a Gong show last night was. So I filmed a video that was inspired by A.Co on 50 Facts About Me. I then discovered that I had video editing software installed on my Windows Vista Laptop. YAY! How awesome is that?!

Once I finally got the hang of adding titles, transitions and trimming the video, I was on a serious roll and really proud of myself. The video was looking pretty darn good for a first try. Other than the fact that I said "Ummmm" like a hundred times and I have a lot of weird "on-camera" habits that I need to break, my first Vlog was really taking shape. 

Then things went south......

Windows Vista being the piece of crap that it is, repeatedly made my video editing crash. The sound would just go mute, then the screen would go black with only titles showing, then just black screen. AGH! I would have to restart all over again, and again....and AGAIN. Finally at midnight I just gave up. So I am so SAD that this video won't come to fruition and be posted today. The Vlog was a long video that was filmed in high quality and I just don't think that Windows Movie Maker could handle it.

So next time I try to film and edit a Vlog, I will make it a shorter lower quality video and hopefully that will prevent WMM from crashing again. If you have any tips for me, please leave them in the comments, I would totally appreciate it!


On the positive side I got to spend quality time with my God Daughter who is just shy of 15 months and THAT was the best part of my day. 

So I will sign off for now as I am leaving on a jet plane to Vancouver for a family visit tomorrow for 7 days. I will be taking a lot of pictures and will try some videos as well.

I will leave you with the last picture taken of my Sisters and I at a wedding a few years ago. Can't wait to see them!

Take care MelMac'ers!

  1. I can completely relate to the computer frustration. not with video files but with photos, sometimes I get so ragey too - like why cant you handle this computer??! Hopefully WMP can handle a lower quality video next time... but you think it would be able to do a higher quality file. good luck the second time around and have fun visiting your family :)


Love to hear from you!
