...yet the 48-hour film project remains an SD competition for all but some select cities. Go figure.

Personally I'm a bigger fan of the Lego Death Star cafeteria...

I'm pretty sure that has more to do with the display capabilities of the venues, not YouTube. Local theaters will buy expensive HD projectors once they become economically viable, which clearly hasn't happened yet.

I agree that YouTube has nothing to do with the 48 decision. It's just ironic that we'd get 1080p on the internet before we get it at the world's most prolific film festival.

And you are right about theaters not having HD projectors. That's what I was told about the Portland show.

But figure that the entry fee is $150 per 50 teams. That's $7,500. And they sell about 1,250 tickets at $8.00 each. That's another $10,000. That's got to cover something...

But, as Yoda might say, "off topic we are."

What does this mean for upload limits? I assume 1080p videos will basically have to be shorter.

Looks like I'm going to need a bigger screen...

Dear Santa,

For Christmas this year I would like a FULL HD computer monitor so I can watch really big videos of dancing cats!

Thanks,
Aaron.

P.S. Oh, and a remote control helicopter... That would be really cool!

Doesn't anybody else wish they would get at least 720p sharp and clear before they go bounding off to 1080p?

I am rather pleased at the quality of my 720p conversions. What problems do you note?

What is the best file type/codec to upload in? I've tried H264 mp4s and WMV but don't get the 1080p option in my videos? Just the standard HD 720?
