Let’s Visit Tokyo – Random street.

Let’s Visit Tokyo - Random street.

Well look at that, we are in September and being in Tokyo still feel like being stuck in a sauna. So you will forgive me if today’s video may not the most interesting one we ever shot, but, I wanted to share with you some shot of Tokyo’s life a Saturday morning in a random area (Close to where I live), where you will see people working around to clean-up street, trees, building a house or just delivering the mail.

By the Way this video has been taken with my Good OLD GH1 that I tweaked a little by hacking the firmware. my GH1 is now capable to record 720/60p Video at 22Mbps instead of Panasonic default 17MBps. The result is a slightly better video quality, I will try to boost this up to 33MBps to see if the GH1 can take it or not.

    You need to allow the video to buffer more. Playing it it keeps stopping and starting. Pausing and it doesnt continue downloading. I have noticed the same problem with other videos on this site. Many countries dont have the 100mbs internet like in Japan so it doesnt play so smoothly for them.

      I need skilled people to help to improve things, but skilled people are not cheap.

      Daimaou, for the audio you are mainly using PCM S16LE 48000hz 16b, for video I see you use H264 (variable 1080p, some videos 720p) at around 128b, all at 30fps. The problem is the VBR of the video. The 720p videos go from 500kbps up to 12000 kbps in peek. But your fullHD 1080p clips start from 10000kbps and go beyond 30000kbps. + the fact that Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer can’t handle HTML5 with H264 encoding decently.

      So the solution for Barry would be: Use Safari or Google chrome (who are programmed to handle HTML5 video streaming up to its full glory).

      For HTML5 video playback in Firefox or Opera you need .Ogg Theora format instead of H264, but for IExplorer and the other/older browsers you will only manage with flash based streaming FLV. I could look into the code to see if I can optimize any code if you want.
