WinCon4 Vid Show  
Another year, another awesome gathering. There is nothing quite like a fangirl pajama party. Can’t wait for next year!

As always, the Vid Show was one of the great highlights for me. Thanks again to all of you amazingly talented people for contributing your work.

We were not able to burn DVDs of the show this year, but we do have permission to post links to all of the full-length vids, so click away and give the artists some love.

In addition to the individual links, I've got the 2.7gb ISO file available for DL if you’d like to see the show in toto.

First, I compressed it down as a single 833mb file, but I also split it into two uncompressed parts in case your technology doesn’t play well with .RAR files. All are loaded on ADrive, and are easily reactivated if you find the files have expired – just comment and I’ll re-share. If you'd like to burn your own DVD of the complete vid show, this is the only way to get it. See below the cut for directions.


WinCon 4 Vid Show - Full 2.7gb DVD

Option A: COMPRESSED .RAR:
WinCon4 Vid Show.rar (833mb)
www.adrive.com/public/7b6993c643618c0c91147abc1f8cbda4cda66fe01d2a63aec4aac4fa2226a4f6.html

Directions
1) Download the .RAR file.

NOTE: ADrive sometimes insists that it's the only thing running in your browser. If this happens and you want to *do things* while the DL is running, you may want to launch multiple browsers - one for ADrive (like, say Firefox) and the other (IE or Safari) for your other stuff. Or vice-versa. Hopefully, ADrive will love you more than it loves me (13 hour failed uploads, my ass!), but permanently refreshable 2gb file storage is something, so, yeah.

2) If you don't already have the free software, download and install the appropriate decompression program. You will need something similar to WinRAR if you use a PC, or Stuffit Expander if you use a Mac.

3) Launch WinRar or Stuffit and expand the .RAR file to the 2.7gb file named "dvd.iso"

4) Launch your DVD burning software
Choose the option to "Burn a Disc Image" or "Image File," and then select the "dvd.iso" file.
Burn the file to a DVD-R.


Option B: SPLIT FILES:
WinCon VidShow4 DVD.iso.001 (1.4gb)
www.adrive.com/public/49a7f2d3e79498414c1587df6516d86a0eae10f22e6339ae7f088cc40374e78c.html

WinCon VidShow4 DVD.iso.002 (1.6gb)
www.adrive.com/public/d788cc3fdfa6597fbf14fb9440a70eda86bcd5b90fd4063d5cf89fdc8dac61f6.html

Directions
1) Download both files, saving them to the same directory.
Due to the very large file size (and ADrive's sometimes slow speeds), each file may take up to 4 hours. You may want to grab them overnight. I recommend disabling your screensaver and any power saving settings (especially for PCs) first. Then just start the download, turn off your monitor and step away.

NOTE: Again, since ADrive sometimes insists that it's the only thing running in your browser, you may want to launch multiple browsers - one for ADrive (like, say Firefox) and the other (IE or Safari) for your other stuff so you can do things during the DL.

2) If you don't already have the free software, download and install the appropriate joining program. You will need something similar to HJSplit if you use a PC, or Split&Concat or ChunkJoiner if you use a Mac. I’ve found that HJSplit Standard is a bit more reliable than HJ Split Pro.

3) Launch HJSplit or Split&Concat or ChunkJoiner.

4) Set the software to JOIN, and select the first file (WinCon VidShow4 DVD.iso.001).
The program will automatically knit both pieces together, forming a 2.7gb file called "WinCon VidShow4 DVD.iso"

5) Launch your DVD burning software
Choose the option to "Burn a Disc Image" or "Image File," and then select the "WinCon VidShow4 DVD.iso" file.
Burn the file to a DVD-R.

The DVD should play on computers as well as standard DVD players that can read your media type. There were no video or audio glitches when I tested my disc at home, but machines are sometimes temperamental (as I experienced at Con this year). Hopefully, everything will work fine with yours.


Enjoy!

Thanks for putting this all together!

Just a quick note: my vid's song is "Above and Below", not "Believe." Sorry if I noted it incorrectly somewhere!

Aw, my pleasure. Glad you found the post. (I'm just now sending it out to all the vidders.) It was such a great show. Thanks for all your help and input!

Funny you should mention the song title. I had seen it listed various ways online, so I wasn't sure what to call it. I ended up going to The Bravery's MySpace page, and they list the title as "Believe," so that's what I used in the listing.

This is fantastic. There's a few vids I haven't seen here. I'm going to Dl the DVD.

Thanks again for everything.

THANK YOU! Alas, I had to miss the con this year, but this (downloading the full .rar file, btw) will soothe my broken heart a wee bit. :)

Well, we'll just have to see you in Chicago next year then. Enjoy!
