Perhaps you need a better network.

the network is very clearly not the problem.


Let’s see;
Original MA2 recorded mp4 OK.
iMovie rendering OK. SmugMug import & rendering OK.
Folks in California, TN, FL, and a few other places see the linked mp4 OK.

So that leaves us with the question, “What could possibly be wrong in NZ that a network error is generated?"

I have difficulty viewing with firefox, but no issue with chromium.
There is lot of buffering, but here in the rural midwest (SW Indiana),
internet speed is not so great, nor is that likely to change soon.

Speedtest shows 4.3M down, 0.9M up right now. I usually get faster
speeds, but the telco gear seems to be affected by the heat- it has
happened before. My DSL link show 7M down, 1.2M up, about normal here.

(Just three more weeks, and I'll be living in the civilized world in
central Pennsylvania!)


Just three more weeks, and then central Pennsylvania. Is that a retirement move?

I guess that makes some sort of sense if you have to deal with rural Indiana. I have only been through Indiana once back in 1973 when I travelled from Syracuse, NY to Columbia, MO to visit some college friends in Columbia. That time we drove around Indianapolis without stopping. On the return trip we tracked North, and spent one night in Elkhart, before getting back to Syracuse. That was enough Indiana for me, and I haven’t been back since.

For now, I am quite content in my retirement here on the Central Coast of the Peoples’ Republic of California. Though it is a tad dry, and vulnerable to wildfire.

....and as a quick check on current speed, here 13 miles West of Paso Robles, CA, I show 114Mbps down, and 10.8Mbps up.

You are correct, of course. My brain was away when I posted.

Retirement was last year at 62, but I continued part time work. This
will hopefully be total retirement, in a down-sized home on the edge of
a small town, with the town park just off my backyard.

Weird things about Indiana:
1. What the hell is a "Hoosier"?
2. "Fast Time" and "Slow Time". The northwest and southwest counties are
on Central time, the remainder of the state is Eastern time. Until a
couple years ago, the west counties on EST did not observe DST.
3. Santa Claus, Indiana. French Lick, Indiana. English, Indiana.
Tasmania, Indiana.
4. Huntingburg, IN, the Hollywood of the midwest. "Hard Rain" and "A
League of Their Own" were filmed in this town of 6000 people. Never saw
either movie. Christian Slater finished filming, and began his 90 day
jail sentence the day after the premiere of Hard Rain. Were you in on
that arrest?
5. In Spencer county, there is a Abe Lincoln National Park. Across the
street, there is an Abe Lincoln State Park. The National Park is free.
The state park charges $10, but you can go boating there, just as Abe
would have done.
6. The weather. As they say in Indiana: "If you don't like the weather,
wait five minutes."

Good things about Indiana:
1. Indiana Military History Museum in Vincennes. $7 gets you access to a
fantastic display of military equipment in realistic settings, including
a French ambulance that the French government would like to have back.
Three times a year (pre-C-19) they did re-enactments, $3 parking fee.
The last WW-I event included a strafing run during the battle. I assume
there were no live rounds!


If you get to Pennsylvania, stop in. I can show you the Statue of
Liberty in the Susquehanna River upstream from Harrisburg, and where
antifa threatened to burn the Flag at Gettysburg National Cemetary, but
thought better of it when they saw all the bikers with bullets.

I suspect my internet speed in Pennsylvania will be similar to here for
DSL, but I will also have cable available. I'm told cable is much
faster, when it is working.

dst needs to go away.

it's one thing indiana had correct but later ****ed up.

there are plenty of places with weird names all over the world,
including asylum and intercourse, pennsylvania.

or this one:

yawn.

they say that for just about everywhere.

https://meh.com/forum/topics/request...phrase-if-you-
dont-like-the-weather-wait-five-minutes
Ive lived in 4 different cities in the United States and somebody
always says If you dont like the weather, wait five minutes! as if
the weather always changes just in their particular area.

The weather changes all the time, everywhere. Your location isnt
that special. Besides, there have been days where the weather was
unlikeable and it took weeks to change!

however, in the san francisco bay area with its microclimates, they say
drive a few miles. the difference between san francisco proper and the
valley can be 20-30 degrees and roughly twice that for the interior
valley.

dsl is obsolete.

cable is much faster, however, it's asymmetrical.

the future is wireless.

Enjoy!

Weird things about Indiana:
1. What the hell is a "Hoosier"?


I have wondered that myself. Nothing to do with hoses. Perhaps Tony Cooper might be able to educate us, he is IIRC an Indiana native now exiled to FL.

2. "Fast Time" and "Slow Time". The northwest and southwest counties are
on Central time, the remainder of the state is Eastern time. Until a
couple years ago, the west counties on EST did not observe DST.


That sounds much like the Nevada-Arizona time changes, and observances

3. Santa Claus, Indiana. French Lick, Indiana. English, Indiana.
Tasmania, Indiana.


We have our share of odd place names in California, including near Carpinteria, a “Santa Claus Lane” and a “Santa Claus Beach”.

4. Huntingburg, IN, the Hollywood of the midwest. "Hard Rain" and "A
League of Their Own" were filmed in this town of 6000 people. Never saw
either movie. Christian Slater finished filming, and began his 90 day
jail sentence the day after the premiere of Hard Rain. Were you in on
that arrest?


No. I spent a good deal of my time dealing with California gangs covering the complete ethnicity spectrum, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, Armenian, and Russian all quite nasty.

5. In Spencer county, there is a Abe Lincoln National Park. Across the
street, there is an Abe Lincoln State Park. The National Park is free.
The state park charges $10, but you can go boating there, just as Abe
would have done.


At 62 you are entitled to buy a Lifetime Pass for National Parks& Monuments. I believe the price has increased since I bought mine at $20. It gets you and the occupants of your vehicle into all the great overcrowded parks.

6. The weather. As they say in Indiana: "If you don't like the weather,
wait five minutes."


The weather here is very different to back East, but it certainly has variety, by having the Pacific coast, and a few hours drive away the Sierra Nevada mountains. The one thing I do not miss is shoveling snow in those Upstate NY winters.

Good things about Indiana:
1. Indiana Military History Museum in Vincennes. $7 gets you access to a
fantastic display of military equipment in realistic settings, including
a French ambulance that the French government would like to have back.

The last WW-I event included a strafing run during the battle. I assume
there were no live rounds!


Beyond the California National Parks, like Yosemite, and Sequoria/Kings Canyon, there are several places other than Hollywood Boulevard, and Disneyland worth visiting. (I really don’t like SoCal, and the LA Basin with a a few exceptions). If you ever have the misfortune to visit L.A. consider visits to both Getty Museums, The Getty Center, and The Getty Villa. Then there is the Petersen Automotive Museum.
http://www.getty.edu/art/
http://www.getty.edu
https://www.petersen.org

Then there is the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento.
https://www.californiarailroad.museum


If you get to Pennsylvania, stop in. I can show you the Statue of
Liberty in the Susquehanna River upstream from Harrisburg,


I saw a recent YouTube video on that. I believe the original was made from venetian blinds, and cardboard, and was recently replaced with a more permanent structure after the original was destroyed by floods.

and where antifa threatened to burn the Flag at Gettysburg National Cemetary, but
thought better of it when they saw all the bikers with bullets.


Gettysburg National Military Park is on my bucket list, as are quite a number of Civil War battle fields. So far the only ones I have been able to explore at length have been Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and Lookout Mountain as those are right in the middle of my family tree. My father was born in LaFayette, GA. which is right in the middle of the Chickamauga battlefield.

I suspect my internet speed in Pennsylvania will be similar to here for
DSL, but I will also have cable available. I'm told cable is much
faster, when it is working.


That depends on just where you find yourself in Pennsylvania.

Things improved for me many years ago when Paul Allen (of Microsoft fame) started Charter Cable (now Spectrum) and installed a fiber optic cable which ran the 13 miles from Paso Robles to our development out at the lake. Up until then we only had dial-up, or outlandishly expensive satellite service. I have had no complaints for 30+ years now.

Weird things about Indiana:



As a native Hoosier (Indianapolis), I'm bound to reply.

1. What the hell is a "Hoosier"?


No one really knows the origin of the term. Most say Origin Unknown.

2. "Fast Time" and "Slow Time". The northwest and southwest counties are
on Central time, the remainder of the state is Eastern time. Until a
couple years ago, the west counties on EST did not observe DST.


3. Santa Claus, Indiana. French Lick, Indiana. English, Indiana.
Tasmania, Indiana.


It was always said that French Lick isn't as much fun as it sounds,
but I attended a wedding there a few years ago and quite enjoyed
myself.

I did my undergraduate studies at Indiana University in Bloomington.
Near Bloomington is Gnawbone, Indiana. East Chicago IN is south of
Chicago. Michigan City is in Indiana. Logansport is landlocked.
There is a Brazil, Warsaw, Edinburgh, and Peru in Indiana.

If you go to Versailles, you pronounce it Ver-Sales, not Ver-Sigh.
Batesville has a company - Hill-Rom - that makes cradle-to-grave
products: cribs, hospital beds, and caskets.

4. Huntingburg, IN, the Hollywood of the midwest. "Hard Rain" and "A
League of Their Own" were filmed in this town of 6000 people. Never saw
either movie. Christian Slater finished filming, and began his 90 day
jail sentence the day after the premiere of Hard Rain. Were you in on
that arrest?


I have a poster in my office from the movie "Hoosiers". That movie
was roughly based on the Milan High School 1954 basketball season. I
was a sophomore in high school that year, and attended the Milan vs
Muncie state final at Butler Field House.

Little known bit of trivia: In the movie, the coach of Hickory's
opponent in the final game was played by Ray Crowe. Ray, in 1954, was
the basketball coach at Crispus Attucks, and coached Oscar Robertson.
The "Big O" was one of the first smooth and graceful basketball
players, and one who started the trend away from clunky white guys.

Another favorite movie of mine was "Breaking Away". While it was set
at Indiana University, most of the exterior shots were filmed in North
Carolina. Good movie, but technically full of inaccuracies that a
Hoosier would catch.

5. In Spencer county, there is a Abe Lincoln National Park. Across the
street, there is an Abe Lincoln State Park. The National Park is free.
The state park charges $10, but you can go boating there, just as Abe
would have done.
6. The weather. As they say in Indiana: "If you don't like the weather,
wait five minutes."


I was not fond of the weather growing up there and having paper routes
where trudging through snow and sleet with a heavy bag of newspapers
was common. I still shudder at the thought of the buckles on my
galoshes catching and causing me to trip in the slush.

I left Indiana to go to graduate school at Northwestern in Evanston
IL, and exchanged walking through the snow delivering newspapers for
endless delays on the Expressways or the Outer Drive in any kind of
weather.

Good things about Indiana:
1. Indiana Military History Museum in Vincennes. $7 gets you access to a
fantastic display of military equipment in realistic settings, including
a French ambulance that the French government would like to have back.
Three times a year (pre-C-19) they did re-enactments, $3 parking fee.
The last WW-I event included a strafing run during the battle. I assume
there were no live rounds!

From a photographer's viewpoint, Indiana offers a lot of opportunity
if you like old barns, abandoned old cars and farm equipment rusting
in fields, and interesting rural scenes.

I spent most of my working life in the specialty surgical instrument
field, and my job in that field sent me back to Indiana. I called on
surgeons from Layfayette down to the Ohio River. In those days, there
was a local, independent, restaurant in every town. Good food and
really excellent choice of pie in each.

Most of us live, at first, where our parents happened to be. After
that, it's usually employment that has us move to some other state.
Most people don't have much choice of where the live until they
retire. Employment moved me to Florida, but I stayed after
retirement.

If you get to Pennsylvania, stop in. I can show you the Statue of
Liberty in the Susquehanna River upstream from Harrisburg, and where
antifa threatened to burn the Flag at Gettysburg National Cemetary, but
thought better of it when they saw all the bikers with bullets.

I suspect my internet speed in Pennsylvania will be similar to here for
DSL, but I will also have cable available. I'm told cable is much
faster, when it is working.


Dunno where you are in Indiana...but no cable internet? Boonville or
further west?

nope. it's usually college or university.

nonsense. everyone has a choice where to live and work, although some
may choose to not exercise that choice, both prior to and in
retirement.

Employment moved me to Florida, but I stayed after
retirement.


that's not a good place to be right now and it's going to get a *lot*
worse before it gets better.

How do you come up with that? Very few people *move* to another state
to attend university. They may temporarily live in that state while
attending university, but they will either return to their home state
after graduation or move somewhere due to an employment opportunity.
Some may stay within the state where they attended university, but
often in a different city.

As usual, you have nothing to contribute but an argument. Not a very
good one, either.

because it's true. duh.

in other words, they moved to attend school.

once again, you agree with what was said, yet you try to argue anyway.
it's truly bizarre.

Some may stay within the state where they attended university, but
often in a different city.


which would be yet another move.

you're catching on.

retire.

there is no argument.

as usual, you are wrong and refuse to admit it.
