Hi everyone!<br><br>As there seems to be no way for me to get to a satellite that someone will let me point at the coordinates for the MacWorld Expo Keynote, I am looking to pay (we can do paypal if you like, or whatever) someone or compensate someone for a taped copy or digital copy (i.e. a DVD-R, that I of course would send one back in return, or pay for expenses and then some) of the BIG keynote. Yes, I know I can watch it streamed over the internet as I do for every keynote, but if this one is to be as big as Apple is making it out to be, I'm DEFINITELY gonna want this on tape!<br><br>If worse comes to worse, does anyone know how to save the keynote when you stream it? All I've been successful in doing in that department in the past is saving it, only to find out what was saved was a quicktime link to the archived keynote stream.<br><br>Thanks so much!!<br><br>Carlo =)<br>firstname.lastname@example.org<br>homepage.mac.com/eurrythmic <br><br>Laterz!<br>Carlo =)

I think digital might not be the best approach. The Keynote is scheduled for 2.5 hours and that's more than capacity of DVD-R as I recall, although it would fit on DVD-RAM.<br><br>With QT Pro (not Standard) you can save a file as a movie but select your option to save carefully. I'm forever careless and wind up with an 8k file that merely links to the original on the Inet. .<br><br>But there's another problem with digital. A 2.5 hour QT movie, depending on viewing size, would be rather large. Again, depending on viewing size, it could run 100-200GB.<br><br>Personally, I'd find someone who wanted to make a few bucks who had a satellite dish, buy them a tape and offer them twenty bucks to tape it. <br><br>Not high tech, but 1TB FireWire drives are still a bit expensive. <br><br>(Hint: Know anyone who works in a local sports bar?)<br><br>128k_Mac<br><br>The box said "Requires Microsoft Windows or better" so I bought a Macintosh. :rolleyes:<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by 128K_Mac on 01/06/02 04:55 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
