Re: imovie and blogs

Hello all,

I just tested out the iMovie share to homepage option. It is very quick and easy but has no
options for changing the compression settings. I guess this is both a strength and a
weakness. It gives you 12fps, 240 x 180 in the H.263 codec. Once iMovie has finished
compressing the file and copying it to the iDisk, the .mac homepage configuration website
is automatically launched and templates for page layout (all fairly cheesy) are presented.

Check out the results:

Like Adrian said, with a bit of hacking I'm sure someone could make iMovie put the movie
file on another server. It would also be cool if it could launch another content
management config page, say in Moveable Type, complete with embed tags etc.
