I'm using kino to work on a film about Free/ Open Source Software. All the clips are going up on the Internet Archive.

My friend went around the world to interview people about free and open source software. I'm editing all the footage to take out the parts where people cough and stuff like that. When I'm done with a clip I put this rough edit on the web under a Creative Commons license. You can go to the archive and download any of the clips for your own use. The link below will take you to the clips.

My Samsung MiniDV that I had for three years and hiccupped with any 1394 device
fried from just charging and rewinding a dv tape at the same time. I bought a new Canon Elura 60 and it works great with Kino!

The hush PC
After I have seen reports on a new very cool design featuring the new Mini-ITX main boards from VIA Technologies Inc., I decided to try this one. It has on-board firewire too, besides the usual interfaces, so it should make a decent DV/MPEG/MP3 player/ripper/copier.
