View Full Version : Low flying video

Made this movie recently. It's footage from us flying real low in a Cessna 210T. We made the 160nm trip never flying much higher than telephone wires, some of it much lower http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The plane was heavy! Five big guys and baggage. The takeoff run was more than 1000m but she climbed out nicely after that. I did the takeoff but the other stuff was done by the guy sitting in the left seat, he has like oogles of hours and plenty on the 210 where I'm still sub 50 on a 210 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Hi my name is Bill. I work with the FAA and I am here to help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Lucky the FAA cannot touch me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and not much illegal about this anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The W&B was within limits and it was open country all the way there. The few towns we passed over was done @ 1500'

I fly cross country air races too and our CAA are in the know with these races. Now I see Barons passing BELOW telephone lines reguraly in these races. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and they going at 190kts!!

what plays mpeg-2 files

07-10-2005, 03:01 PM
BS Player can play em, and WMP should play em

07-10-2005, 07:53 PM
bs player plays but i get no audio or video and ive tried wmp10, real player, quicktime, and creative meadia source, and divx and they all say im missing a codec, but real player says i need to download microsoft direct show (whatever the hell that is)
i also have the divx and xvid codec

well, it played fine for me on BS Player. I dunno what to tell ye

You'll need a specific MPEG2 decoder. Most DVD software players have them built in but even MS can get it wrong.

Try here. http://www.elecard.com/products/mpeg2decoder.shtml I think its free. I've used it in the past when I've need to and it works great. You do get a watermark in the top right hand corner though.

hi bbloke,

i had some issues with audio-desynching using the elecard filters ago, have you experienced similar? furthermore the filterset registers (silently and unnoticed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif) for mpeg1-decoding and also for mp3-decoding in avi-files, for which it lacks several features.

anyway, until i finally got 'windvd' (intervideo filters), which i find very excellent, i have made good experiences with 'gabest' open-source filters and splitters, and, lately, with 'hdtv pump' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (a mpeg2 stream source filter, intentionally made for stutterless hdtv-playback on <2ghz-cpus.

least, a 3rd possibility for free mpeg2-decoders/filters (on directshow based players) is the 'dscaler'-project. though steady developed, the set is very stable and discussed in a good forum.

Hi Deepo,

I've not had trouble with audio decoding but I think that has something to do with what else has been installed on my PC. IIRC BSPlayer uses a different audio decoder than elecard.

As for other un-noticed registry entries, I agree. It is something I had forgotten about. MPEG-1 decoding was awful incomparison to standard decoders installed by MS.

I guess its better to say - Use with caution and remove when finished.

Codecs installed upon codecs can cause problems also.. I remember FFDSHOW was a vary useful directshow filter for many different formats.

When installed it does take charge of file playbacks unless you set things up to use the actual codec. ie use XViD codec to play back XViD clips instead of FFDSHOW. If that makes any sense!

hi bbloke,

yep, makes sense http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
pc-media-setups seem to be one of the only things in the world, which pollute the environment by filter-overloads http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Interesting video, was this shot in South Africa?
