I think so. I also missed the chance to eat at Qdoba with Jack !

OK, here's five little clips strung together for about 4:09.
That's 18.3 Mb and requires QuickTime 6 or anything else that can play
MPEG-4 audio and video, like VLC (VideoLan Client). It was shot at 640 x
480, and was reduced to half those sizes during compresssion.
In fact, there's a problem with both QuickTime 6 and 7 playing this file
-- the sound drops out about a third of the way from the end. But it
doesn't happen in VLC, at least for me. My apologies.
[Tech saga follows]
The problem might have to do with the dodgy nature of converting muxed
MPEG-1 files (where the sound and video are interleaved, as my Sony
DSC-W1 produces) to anything QuickTime can handle -- this time I tried a
utility called MPEG Streamclip which automatically appends all the files
together if you like. If you want to do one file at a time and export to
MPEG-4, you can use Kinoma Producer. And then there's all kinds of
hi-wire stuff you can use on the command line (ffmpeg and so on), but
I'm a lazy bastard these days.
Anyway, Mr. Whitney, if you (or other interested parties) see anything
in there you would find useful, I can give you the original MPEG-1 files
(360 Mb worth), where the sound is intact.
