My Russia and Philippines video tributes to Winston

Postby jamesbond » December 30th, 2012, 10:07 pm

I just joined Vimeo and uploaded the videos I made of Winston, here are the links for them. I wish there was a way to watch them on the forum like you can with youtube videos.

I put the happierabroad website link in my descriptions of the videos so people can click on it and go directly to the site.

Thanks Jamesbond.

But what happened to the rest of this thread? Did you remove the other posts? Or did you delete that thread altogether?

I will look into figuring out how to display vimeo videos here.

In the meantime, here are those two free DVD ripper programs again that you can use to extract videos from my Russia DVD's.

I didn't think the Polish girls were that friendly. I think it was in Poland where a lot of the girls were asking you to turn off your video camera (they also were putting their hands up and covering their faces).

I thought the girls in Lithuania were much more friendly and approachable.

Remember that Polish girl who turned you down, even before you asked her out? You were saying something to her and she interrupted you and said, "I have a boyfriend." You then said, "How did you know what I was going to ask you?" lol :lol:

I am working on getting video clips made and putting them up probably on Vimeo, since youtube might take them down, just like they did with all the other videos I made regarding Winston and his overseas travels.

A few Polish girls did that, yeah. Only the ones in Krakow were friendly. At least they were approachable somewhat though.

I looked into embedding vimeo on this forum, but all the articles about it only applied to phpbb3, not to this version of phpbb. It's way too complex for me to figure out. So I guess I'll just have to drop that idea. We'll just have to post links to vimeo videos.

However, I did embed some of your vimeo videos of tributes to me on my slide show page:

Have you figured out how to rip video from DVD's yet using those two free programs? Were they really free or just trials with limitations?

Btw, I really want to upload the footage from my Russia Trip 3 DVD's. People have been waiting a long time to see them. But I don't have the time to extract and edit them with captions like I did with the other videos.

How about I just pay you some money to extract and upload them for me? Not the whole thing of course, just the videos of the interactions with girls. I could pay you at a set rate per minute of the footage you extract and upload. What do you think?

Check out this footage of me in Russia that Jamesbond uploaded so far as a test. It starts with me playing a word game outside, and then me hitting on a girl in orange blouse, and then me kissing a promotion girl outside Hotel Russia, where an Indonesian guy I met on the plane was staying. lol Then it shows me, him and a girl walking around in Red Square at night. lol Watch it now while it's still up. We all know what YouTube does with videos like these.

Jamesbond,
A suggestion. Since YouTube removed your previous videos about me, how about this: Set your videos about me as "unlisted" so that whoever flagged your videos last time doesn't see them? Click on the Edit button and you will see an option to mark them as "unlisted". That way, the URL will still embed here, but won't be visible to flaggers and moderators.

WTF happened to Winston. I watched the one of him trying ot pickup the Polish girl selling jewelry. I bought some of his original videos on videotape back in 2003. Early reality videos. I bought a camcorder before I went to Ukraine in 2003 and videoed some of my encounters with women too. I have only 3 encounters videoed, but they are great to look view. Winston why are you not filming reality based videos now?

I'm a beginner creating youTube videos. What software can I use to create music video from an audio file. I don't even have to add a lot of pictures to this file. What is the easiest software for me to use for this task. Winston or JamesBond? Any suggestions?

In Windows Movie Maker, which comes with your Windows program, you can add audio tracks to the track line by dragging them in. It's very easy. YouTube lets you add some royalty free music as well.

Here is what I have edited and extracted so far from Winstons third trip to Russia. I made these videos "unlisted" on youtube so hopefully they won't be taken down like the other videos I made of Winston were.

Hey wait a minute. This girl is in Lithuania, not Russia.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2R1KPA3lhs[/youtube]

Why not just combine them all into one video? My goal is to have them in 30 minute increments as a Part 8 in the series and so forth.

Btw all, in the clip above, notice how relaxed and cool she is toward a male stranger. As you can see, in Lithuania, flirting is not considered creepy or taboo. Even if the girl isn't really interested in you, at least she's lighthearted and playful about it, and doesn't make you feel like a creep, as you can see from this clip.

I just changed it to say Lithuanian girl. Winston, there is a problem as far getting all the videos into one. First of all to do that (assuming I could put all the videos in one) it would have to be done in Windows Movie Maker.

Big problem, I would need to convert all the videos to wmv format. So far, I have tried by downloading about a dozen free software programs that can convert video to wmv.

What happens is that the video quality goes to hell when I use these programs. The one's that aren't free cost at least $49.95 and even then there is no guarantee that the video quality won't look like crap.

What you might wind up getting is a bunch of short videos like the ones above that will be about 30 minutes long in total. I am still extracting and editing and still trying to find a good wmv converter.

Why do you need to convert the files to WMV format? Windows Movie Maker can accept most video formats. You just lay all the video files next to each other on the track, and then click Publish and select Best Quality right? Isn't that how people do this kind of thing?

Did the two free video extractors I found work ok? Do the free versions have limitations?

Winston, you obviously have not done this before so I will try to explain as simply as possible. When the videos are extracted, they are NOT in wmv format. The only format windows movie maker takes is wmv.

To convert the extracted videos to wmv I need to search the net for hours to find software that will convert video clips to wmv. The free software I have found so far converts it to wmv but the video qualilty is horriflying.

Windows movie maker DOES NOT accept most video formats, that is why it needs to be converted to wmv. :shock:
