A Vloggercon Promo, Without Using My Camera

This is a video that was made in response to the day 6 challenge posted on the videoblogging yahoo group. The challenge was to vlog without using your camera. I've had this idea for doing a vloggercon promo for about a week now and this seemed like an opportunity to make that idea come to life and also keep the days challenge. This video is a day late. If you care to hear about my editing issues with this video read below. Or skip my complaining and enjoy the promo.

Clips from these vloggers were included in this clip:

Dave's (90 Seconds of Dave) original video "Transformation" can be found here.
Josh's ( original video "The Best Hot Dog in Grand Rapids" can be found here.
Ninja's ( original video "Ninja Skills" can be found here.

And David's (David Howell Studios) original video "Video Blogging Week Day 3" can be found here.

My editing issues:
Wow, this video a day is tough. Last night I was exporting what I thought would be my completed video and was getting ready to post it then my computer just decided an error was in order and the export would fail. This happened at least one other time. I figured since I had used an new screen capture program that had made video in a different file format from the rest of the videos included in this one that that might be the problem. I went back, compressed them to .mov files and then tried again. This time audio wasn't working. Apparently if I leave gaps between audio clips my program won't pic up when a new one starts. Also for some reason (and this never happened before) the audio also wouldn't export into applelossless so I had to use a different codec. Long story just a bit shorter after about 6 or so export attempts this is the best one. I wish the screen capture quality and audio was better and I am not sure how compatible it'll be but it is what it is and again I have learned a lot from the process. I guess we have all been through the compression woes. Maybe when those new video blogging books come out I'll be able to figure out a better solution.
