I really rarely read this group any more because (a) you are all so far above my head now that I can't keep up, and (b) I suspect I"ve become a thorn in many sides since I now rarely receive any response at all.
But my big frustration is in trying to find a format.  Any format.  I started posting in .wmv but people couldn't see that and I was told that QuickTime was the way to go, so I started posting in QuickTime.  Then I was told that QuickTime couldn't be loaded onto the new iPods and I should use 3ivx, which I did.  Now some people complaint that they can't see those.  I post to both Blip and YouTube.  You Tube uses flash.  Some can see it, some can't.  Nerissa helped me with creating imbedded players on my site, which some complain can't be seen.  Then Robert very kindly took a video for me and converted it into two flash formats, one of which I can't see.  I've upgraded my windows media viewer.  I've upgraded my flash format and though I have no problem viewing the videos most of you guys post, my own videos can be seen by some, not by all.
For the average, run of the mill, senior citizen who just wants to watch a video and not get into video blogging, etc....what is the best way to go?  I belong to Senior Net and people are enthusiastic about seeing my videos, but cannot see either 3ivx or YouTube's flash.  My boss wants me to put a video on his web page, which I did in several formats, none of which he is able to access from his computer.
I have studied all of Josh's excellent training videos and tried everything and nothing works consistently.
I am so confused and so frustrated.  It's not like I'm posting anything terribly creative or important or anything else.  And my god have I learned a lot in the past six months, but at every turn I come up against another brick wall when someone says "I tried, but I can't view your videos."
