Video of May MySQL Meetup: Measuring MySQL Performance

As much as I tried to get the video of the May Boston MySQL meetup captured, edited, and exported the night of the meetup it just didn't happen. I got close, had it captured and edited but exporting from DV to a compressed Quicktime takes many hours. Even on the Intel dual core it took almost 12 hours of both CPUs going full speed (hey, that's slower than my old PowerBook G4).

I started using audio from the lapel mic but unplugged it when the Q/A started (early in the presentation). The sound is much better from the lapel mic but if there is back and forth with the audience the video misses half the conversation. In my experience asking the presenter to repeat the question doesn't work, even if they remember to repeat (which they usually don't) you miss any back and forth and have gaps of silence.

Anyhow, the video is up on Google (download for video iPod) and can also be downloaded here. The Quicktime is much better resolution than the video on Google.

Thanks to Martin and kbglob for donating storage space and bandwidth.
