I forgot about how AVI files are limited to 2GB. Stupid fucking microsoft. Yet another monkey wrench thrown into my new video capture scheme. Will it be easier to add quicktime support to mencoder, or huffyuv support to streamer? :P

Also, I took the lj slut test (beware any website that declares itself a meme). To save bandwidth, it's a 6.6% and seven 0%s. Heh, I wrote %s, and then thought "possible format string vulnerability"...anyway, 6.6% seemed a little high, but to be fair, I fucked those people BEFORE they joined LJ.

Based on your suggestions, I went ahead and bought The Art of Electronics because amazon.com liked it. Maybe I'll learn something..

I thought there was some kind of extension to the AVI format or something that allowed it to handle files larger than 2GB.

I wish I knew what it was. I have no problem writing huge AVIs, but reading them back in causes problems. I've seen a couple people allude that the AVI could be fixed with a hex editor, but I can't find the procedure anywhere.

That isn't a bad reference. Quite frankly a good college-level electronics text is a fantastic way to start, even though they are expensive. My old one is: "Grob: Basic Electronics" also available at amazon but costs $83. I'd sell you mine but I'm keeping it. :)

If you have a tech school w/ electronics courses near you, wait until after a semester and look for used beginning electronics texts.

Cool, I'll look around for those.

I actually got this book new from half.com, which saved me $20 but I'll be waiting over a week for it to show up.
