    Anybody know how to record the stream? I’m happy to trade with something else…

    Yep, just watched the movie. Great.

    By the way I’ve seen the film ( 200 motels) way back in the old days, as soon as it was released in Belgium. In an obscure Brussels cinema in Passage 44. There’s a kind of tourist office right now in that place.

    I grabbed it as a QuickTime movie but it was nearly 2GB so I squashed it into an m4v thingy, so it plays on a video iPod, but it is still 160MB. Uncle Beat Vine anyone?

  4. Balint says:

    Wow!
    Can you tell a few words about it? Is it a documentary? Is it totally different from “The True Story of…”?
    And: what is m4v?… I’d be interested, but all I have is a Windows XP…

    Duncan: wouldn’t the 2GB movie fit on a DVD? I didn’t have a chance to actually see this one; would be nice if an Uncle Beat vine was made for this…

  6. BuffaloVoice says:

    Finally figured out myself. Recorded the way it was streamed and it’s a 250MB. Let me know if you want to trade…

    Yes it would go on a DVD but there seems to be little difference in quality with the reduced size. I will stick it on a CD – I guess more people can share CDs – and start a vine for it…. for free – no trades required :-)

    See you in Uncle Beat then? :)
