    I've always wanted to witness the general skill-level of fellow BC members. If any of you have any videos of yourself playing, please link up to them on youtube or any other video streaming site so we can watch :) Thanks

    Bad to you might be good in comparison to a few here. I honestly think I'm horrible, but I may be better than some. But you should definitely post a video to start things off. I don't have any videos of me and I won't be at any gym for a while (sprained wrist). Maybe another week, so I can't produce any videos. I'll post one, once I record one.

    I have always wanted to video myself playing.

    Personally I think if you see yourself doing the mistakes you will be more likely to correct them than if a coach sees them and tells you the mistakes:D.

    I have tried but the quality was rubbish - from a phone :D.

    The game is so fast that not even a relatively new phone can't video it :D

    I have videos of other people but nobody has taken any of me so I can't upload any of me.
    But my LG Viewty phone has a 120fps camera so you can pick up really fast smashes in slow motion, which looks pretty cool.

    I bring my camera every time when I play.
    I end up just concentrating on playing badminton that I keep forgetting to record some footage.
    Tomorrow I'll try to remember.

    so enough talk, who's going to be the first to upload a vid??

    *waits excitedly but too lazy to upload one of his own*

    this thread could really take off depending on how many ppl can be bothered to get kitted out, record and upload...

    I will be back on the court in a few days, so expect some from me ;) Give some time for BCers to whip out a camera and film themselves and this thread is destined for epicness.

    I bought an external harddrive, with a secondary purpose of storing all my recorded videos of me playing (during practice, at tournaments, etc). I ended up using most of the space to store movies, but I still have quite a number of videos of me playing. I just hate uploading things to Youtube because it takes so long and half the time it messes up halfway through. If only Youtube could show you like a "% Uploaded" bar or something so you have an idea of how much time remains.

    You can always use MegaVideo or Photobucket(does video now), or mediafire. HOpe that helps.

    Okay, so here's a very short clip of me playing. I'm the guy in the white shirt, black shorts on the camera side. This was maybe about 2 years ago?

    Yes yes, I know I'm not very good. But someone had to start this, right?
