Any video gurus out there? Trying to get the most bang per file size on some of the video we've shot lately. Right now using FLV format as it seems to be the most cross-platform effective, although the compression Apple's MP4 is far better.

Looking for tips on all that complicated stuff, like bit rate, frames per second, etc. etc.

And, here's how we sounded acoustically, for the first time ever, with no rehearsal. Lots of fun!

Funny how playing a Bob Weir model Alvarez Yairi guitar straight into the board still sounds like Jerry's Takamine from Reckoning.

You guys sound terrific. Every bit as good as DSO, in my opinion. Comparing tribute band to tribute band, you guys stack right up with them. Nice job. I'm trying to watch your hands for some's a bit easier watching a lefty, 'cause it's like a mirror image!! :shock:

Take 'er easy...keep on jammin'.
