The header disappears periodically. The URL should be: http://sabhlokcity.com/sanjeev-blog.jpg
The theme has a backup option. Should use it.

a) FLV is the best format (flash)
b) Youtube and other such are a total nuisance given their low limits (100MB/10 minutes). Avoid them.
c) Veoh allows more than 10 minutes but requires a log on. A nuiscance, again.
d) BEST software for video editing: Videopad video editor (Ulead is good but old versions can't deal with new media). It can easily combine/splice FLVs as appropriate and convert to virtually any format.
(or try Freevideotoflash…. [DVDSOFT]
e) Make sure you install an appropriate plugin into WordPress. In my case I have used FLVEMBED (free)
f) Upload FLV on the server, and provide a POSTER (jpg) to act as the front end.
g) Insert the video by inserting as HTML: [flv:movie poster width height] where movie is the URL of the movie and poster the URL of the poster. A good width height setting is: 480 360. But if you are using on the right bar of the blog, shrink it.

notes for transferring photos from my handycam to the computer:
– the original software supplied (called picture package) DOESN’T WORK any longer. Says it requires macromedia flash but doesn’t accept the latest flash version. So it is totally USELESS!
– So I went to http://www.sony.com.au/support/download/333420/product/dcr-hc96e
and install “PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Ver.4.3.03” is an alternative software to “Picture Package”. EVEN DOWNLOADING THIS WAS A NIGHTMARE. And it requires the original CD of Picture Packager to install!! Do Sony NOT HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR THEIR CLIENT’S TIME??? in my case the number is SPVD -012.1 usb DRIVER 2-666-755-01.
