Original YT playout date: 15 April 2008
“Not The Tommy Boyd Show from Play Two UK.
***PURPLE LANGUAGE WARNING***
If you are easily offended, or even offendable at all, then better not to watch this series of videos. It is for aficionados of the more unbridled style of discourse, and not for young or impressionable ears.
Those of you who know me from the eclectic group of fans of the talk radio legend Tommy Boyd may be aware from the shrine posts that in response to Stu’s request I agreed to take on the task of youtubecasting the show feeds, which used to be done, and done extremely well, on the channel wwwplayradioukdotcom here on YouTube. Since December, that channel’s owner has not (either wanted to or been able to, I don’t know, but either way he hasn’t) continued. That was a channel entirely dedicated to the show, whereas as agreed in the Tommy Boyd forum my screenings will be on my channel, which has very mixed forms of films on it already and a fairly varied subscriber base. This means I can probably get more exposure for this show than the dedicated channel could, but on the other hand I want to squeeze each show onto a single film, so as not to flood this channel with items which may not be exactly what the bulk of subscribers signed up for.
Hence I purchased PowerDirector 6.0, and this is my very first attempt with it. All I wanted to do is test whether I could actually do it, that is get a three hour feed plus audio off two studio cameras onto a single clip on this channel. If you’re reading this, it worked.
I am aware that there are faults in this test post. First, I’ve managed to squeeze the audio too far. It’s what you might call “”AM”” rather than “”FM”” quality. Actually, make that “”SW””. I also did the picture in picture too small, and the facial expressions of Arron and Jo can’t be seen properly. I also did not do any editing or effects on this, as all it is is a test run, but I want to put it up anyway to let the fans of the show know that it’s on its way, and to get some feedback.
To participate in this show live go to http://stuandmatt.servebeer.com from 7 to 11 pm UK time on Sunday nights.”
“I did a bit of editing as time permitted, but after the first fifteen minutes or so I didn’t add too much by way of effects as I’m away most of this week and didn’t want to get behind. I’m gradually building up the library of avatars – this time a couple more are included.
I had to use a lot of transparency in this one as Matt on camera one was sitting quite centrally. Hope you can see OK and the coverage of faces is fair to everyone.”
