The AGM Is on board this Sunday and I am going to find out more about it, I will be taking my Video camera to have a look around.
I have never been on-board a steam ship before, so looking forward to see the Engine room and the Bridge, I think the engines are similer to the ones installed in the Titanic, I will post some video and pics for you all soon.

bounce   silly I know but cant wait.

Very Happy Bernie.

if you ever get the Waverley down your way, take a trip on her and have a look in the engine room..........it is a beautiful sight for sore eyes, and the rhythmic action of the engines are just mesmerising........I took my usual trip this summer and stood watching for about an hour.

I have to agree there Neil, went on Waverley many moons ago, I didn't want to leave the engine room... Never been on the SS Shytehaul though, perhaps next time I visit my mum..

To upload to Youtube you need to put the video through handbrake first. This will cut the time to about 30 mins because it transcodes it to mp4.

https://handbrake.fr/

If you need the settings I will help.

Very Happy

Excellent, First download the handbrake via the link.
Then I have found the best settings are as follows.
Picture settings.
Anamorphic, None.
Modulas 16
Width 720
Hight 400
Video codec H.264
Average bit rate 1500
2pass encoding
Web optimized --- this will mean everybody can view it even on a mobile phone.

Audio.
Audio 128
Hope this helps and any more help needed just ask.
Bernie.

Today, I did go to the AGM of the SS SHEILDHAUL. And I was mentioned, in front of everybody as the new member, a bit blushing. I was glad to be recognised as the Crane operator that lifted there new Generator on board.
I think I will be getting involved with the engine room, deck handling and maybe the Bridge as well, they are a great bunch of very enthusiastic volunteers, and looking forward to next Saturday, to be given a grand tour around the Ship (not as mentioned previously by Windy the Shythaul LOL but I do get his point) and Yes, it had a bit in the past, turning Seagulls into brown gulls, but it is looking great with all the hard work to bring her to a great Steam Ship.
I did not get the chance to video anything but I will as soon as I can.
Bernie Very Happy

Good man, any probs give me a call, Try it first it crunches the video down so uploads take very little time, have a look at my Channel. A half hour video will take about 1 hour to upload instead of 9 months lol!  No Rolling Eyes Sleep

I am having a grand tour of the SS Shieldhaul Saturday and will film it for everybody.
