Gite in Languedoc Roussillon for a Holiday in France

Well I have been playing with videos again, this time using Window's Movie Maker. Those files get really big when you add lots of special effects. I think I actually got a few extras that I didn't want but after waiting all afternoon for it to upload then I am afraid it is what it is. Or more accurately 'was', I am pleased to say that I have tried a different file format now which is much better. Hardly any crackles now. So you shouldn't be worried that your computer is playing up as you may have been with the previous version.

They also say that they will continue to improve the video quality over time. But I have to say it took 4 hours to upload initially and it was only about 3 minutes long, so I didn't hold out much hope out for that one. Changing the format and uploading again definitely improved the quality, but it is not quite as good as the Facebook version which you can see here Living in France

I am sure I will get better at this the more I do it, but for now all I can say is it is a good job I have plenty of storage space, because any more videos like the first one and I will need to buy an external hard drive. And don't even suggest I use the cloud to store my files, I am already on the wrong side of middle age and life isn't long enough to upload any more files like that, even if it is just to a storage directory.

Well I hope you enjoy it, and as I have your attention I would just like to point out that the purpose of the exercise was to advertise our gite on the 2nd biggest search engine in the world. Especially as we still have a free week at the end of August, in the school holidays and I am prepared to negotiate. Happy viewing.


  1. Well, I enjoyed it and wish I was there, especially in that pool :-)

  2. Thanks Princessa, glad you enjoyed it. The pool is looking very inviting today, might even have a dip myself later.
