Video of Philip Antoniades' Presentation at Boston MySQL Meetup

Finally got an evening to get the video (alternate site) of Monday night's MySQL meetup captured and ripped down to a manageable Quicktime move. The presentation is Philip Antoniades speaking about MySQL 5's new features.

It's really pretty easy with MiniDV and a firewire cable. Used Final Cut to throw in some titles (Creative Commons), fades and tweak the audio a bit. The longest part of the whole process was the export to Quicktime, about 2 hours while I worked on other things.

If you're looking for a dazzling multimedia experience, this isn't for you. The most important thing was to get the audio sounding good, and the ability to see the slides. We may improve upon it in future meetups, but for now you'll have to deal with a darkened face in favor of seeing the slides.

If there's enough complaining I can pretty easily make a larger or smaller version, and perhaps an mp3. Let me know in the comments if any of those interest you and I'll update with whatever the popular demands.

And just to be clear, Philip said it was OK to record as long as we put it up under a Creative Commons license.
