@SharonC 

One question, how did you down load your file from your Ipad to your computer?

  

I use a software to connect wirelessly through my network. Less complicated way is to connect your Ipad directly to your PC via USB cable. I've attached some instructions.

  

@SharonC 

Thank you, I have copied your info.   Will save it . 
  

@Danie You're welcome.  Glad to have you join the Group Project! smile

@Danie -

About using YouTube - if you have a Google account, you can sign into YouTube with it. 

I easily 'share' videos from my phone to YouTube (and keep them private), but here is video help for you to upload your videos.

Thank you Emily.  All your input is very much appreciated.

Thanks @BillyG :-). I managed to re-do my recording this morning and submitted. Still some issues with it, but better. Playing along with a click-track in my ear is challenging to me. I'm having a hard time balancing the volume so I can hear my violin and the click-track.

Thanks

Emily @Fashionandfiddle,

I would just wait until later tomorrow.  I submitted mine on Saturday afternoon and haven’t received an email yet.  I trust that  Fiddlerman will work with us in the next few days to make sure that all videos are accounted for and no one is left out.

Last year he posted a list of participants here and we had a chance to rectify any missing videos.  I was in a real panic when my name wasn’t on the list after all that effort learning and videoing the piece, but all worked out fine in the end.  Just keep checking in here for updates.

@AnnyJ,

I treated myself to a set of wireless earbuds this year.  When I play along with click tracks, I keep just one earbud in my right ear and leave my left ear free to hear my violin.  It works great!  I bought a fine set of Sony earbuds for a fantastically low sale price at Best Buy several months ago.

These earbuds worked so well for this group project:  a little tap of the earbud turns on the click track!  Really simplifies the recording process!

Sorry about that. It's only because I tend to do other stuff on the weekend and do not always find time to do work.....

If anyone has not received a confirmation as, let me know because chances are that I have not received your submission. However, give me a few days unless you submit on Monday the 13th and haven't heard from me by the end of the day.

The new deadline is the 13th. 😁

Oh man. After days of trying to make a video it was way to big to send via the attached form. I uploaded to YouTube and sent that. Hope it works. I did manage 3 takes of part 1 viola. Got way too frustrated with trying to record more and even though I can do parts 3 & 4 fairly well, my timing S??ks and I can't keep even with the click track. :-(. Hope at least something makes it through.

Thanks for the extension. I intended to record over the weekend but ran into problems with excessive apartment noise at the times I was free to record.

❄️ LYRICS ❄️

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow,
 
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

If you submitted your video and your name is not on the list, here some things to consider:

Did you submit via the new drag and drop on the page with the instructions, or did you email it? If you emailed it, it won't reach Fiddlerman. Please resubmit using the drag and drop system on the instructions for submission page. 

White Christmas Instructions

 

Was it submitted as an mp4 format? If not, please convert your file to an mp4 format. Note, Apple devices create .mov, not mp4, correct me if I am wrong. There are many ways to convert. Check back in this thread for options. I downloaded HandBrake to my HP desktop computer. I transferred my .mov file to my HP desktop with a SanDisk Thumb-drive and saved it from the SanDisk thumb-drive to my HP desktop. Then I selected it as the file to convert in HandBrake. Note, I had to do this twice because the extension that I saved it to was .4mv or something like that. I thought I selected .mp4. It does not take long. I then went to the White Christmas Submission page and selected that MP4 file. I seem to recall that I could see a progress bar. After it was complete it stated it was submitted.

So, if you selected your file and you immediately got the message stating it was submitted and did not see the progress bar, you probably submitted the wrong type of file, and that is why your name is not on the list of received submissions. I noticed this difference because the first submission was a .mov file. I forgot about the mp4 requirement when I submitted. When I submitted the proper format, the submission result was slightly different than when I tried with the .mov file.

The two submissions were slightly different. The wrong submission, the .mov file, immediately gave me the the successful submission message. It actually did not submit the file, even though it said it was submitted. Fiddlerman did not receive the file.

When I did it right, there was the progress bar and the message of the submission was delayed for just a few seconds while the progress bar advanced to 100%.

That was my experience, not sure if others who did it right had the same experience.

Make sure you name the piece and what part you are playing, ie cello 3, and your name as you want it to appear, and provide your email address in box where requested.

Also, I have been asked to submit some videos for members, as much as I love helping you all, I cannot do this for you. Members have to submit their own videos. You can post issues here and receive help.

I have a part 1 video but it is too large to send through the form. How can I compress it so it will fit parameters?

That is weird, Ripton. Fiddlerman said it was his end that was limiting the file sizes and he fixed that. How big is your file? I will let him know.

I wonder why other part 1's went through.

Hmm, I have part 1 via YouTube and I reset my camera and was able to send Pt 3 and 4 through the web form. Part 1 was 344MB but I though it was blocked by the webform. Pt 3 & 4 are about 160MB

I just selected from my files in my directory. I didn't use YouTube. Want me to mention it to Fiddlerman if you don't get any responses by noon tomorrow? Wonder how large the file was for other people's Part Ones.

That sound like something nifty to have. Sure would help not being leashed to a computer or phone when playing.

When I uploaded my part 1, the first time I tried it, it said it was too large as well. Then I just tried it a second time and it went through without changing anything, all be it slow. Strangely enough part 2 went through quickly, even though there was only a difference of a few mb. (Both were between 120 and 140 mb, for reference).
