Happy New Year!

I send everyone my best wishes for a happy New Year!

Fireworks in Leiden (top floor Burcht-Brill building). I took this little video clip with a Canon Powershot A520. The avi file from the camera is converted to a flash flv file using MPlayer. This results in a huge file size reduction (see my previous entry “Convert photo camera movie to flash (flv)”). This is how I did the conversion with MPlayer 1.0rc1:
