    Coming! The second half of the month will be overloaded. I've been catching up on my videos, sorry for the dry spell there.

    Oh, and wait until the PDC. You'll be crying "Uncle" and asking me to post fewer videos, not more. Wink
  • New channel9 staffer. Very perky.

    The sound is very "windy"
  • Microsoft, given that you now recognize (after looking at this video) that not all the videos around the net are shot in decent lighting and so on, how about relaying this message to the WMP team:

    It would be greatly appreciated if the video equalization (contrast,brighness,saturation atleast) would be accessible through at most 1 keypress or 2 mouse actions at all times. And if visible they would not steal, at worst case, half of the WMP window. I know the rest of the space is for more space hungry controls like audio equalization but that doesn't mean every other control takes the equal amount of space. Alternatively there could be some dumb-user button "this video stinks, please adjust the settings automatically to give decent picture". There is this kind of functionality in say Photoshop (Auto-levels, -contrast, -color), so certainly worth a thought.

    edit: Uh yes it looks ok if I push my display settings to the 90% (uber bright desktop) or gamma correct (Uh then I need to change it back for the next video) but the eyes are still hard to see without manual adjusting (Photoshop: Shadow/Highlights would fix this). So usability to WMP thanks!

    If you have a ATI graphics card,then in the last couple of ATI Catalyst drivers (when using the CCC 'Catalyst Control Centre' built on .NET 1.1 forms!) under the 'Video' tab there are some video presets, the 'Office' preset is perfect for these darker Channel9 videos.
