- If I film the entire match (needs edits), then I use Standard Definition (480p) to make editing easier
- If I am the one filming (usually), then I can use High Definition (720p) and upload straight to YouTube, uncut
- I'm using a Samsung Camcorder with an 8GB Internal Hard Drive, and additional 8GB flash cards. I can go as high as 1080i, but that would make uploading even crazier. Besides, I can get more matches with 720p =)
Yup, it was tough playing HHB/YY but it was a great experience nonetheless. They are a pretty funny team to watch as they are quite animated on court in between rallies sometimes It makes them a little less intimidating and makes the match a little more enjoyable. Anyway, the other XD match has been uploaded and posted between Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei [CHN] vs. Tao Jia Ming/Qing Tian [CHN]. I was hoping for something like the 2010 Japan Super Series XD Final, but oh well

What we get from Badminton Canada is $500 toward traveling fees and that they will send a National Team coach with us (Jeff White). Unfortunately, that's all we get... but it'll be nice to have an actual coach behind us on court Oh well, it is what it is...

My coach is a singles player. He is training me only for singles. When I am on a doubles court i have no idea what I am doing or what to do :P Some people have described it like playing singles with a tree in the middle of the court.

Awesome blog and thanks for taking the time to upload the videos! It's such a travesty that our athletes do not get the funding or the attention required. However, the one great thing out of all of this is the people like you and your teammates and how you guys continue to strive and achieve your dreams. Continue posting to the blog whenever you get the time and I will be there to read.
Keep up the great work!

The crowd were amazing for the Indonesia open , even for the Q1/2 day.
Just seen the US open draw , you and Grace are seeded 8 (@ a Grand Prix Gold) , does that give you more motivation to reach the latter stages of the tournament i.e QF , SF or beyond because of the expectation within yourself ?
Sudket's team is in the draw as well .....he is a real character on the court, his style is so unorthodox (love his jump smash) , he is so quick and so flexible . and that unforgettable last point he played at the final of the all England championship

Has David Snider retired? I haven't seen his name anywhere or see him pay since the world championships last year.
07-11-2011, 10:51 AM #46
I think Dave is out for a while because he injured his hand, and the doctor said he couldn't 'touch a racquet' for six months. I'm not 100% sure, but that's what I was told by other players. Hopefully he will make a comeback soon enough.

Having difficulty uploading videos to YouTube here, maybe because I'm uploading HD videos. Here's the only thing I could get up. Some other matches I will be attempting to post will include:
WD 32 - Bruce/Li [CAN] vs Rie/Wakita [JPN]
XD 32 - Lin/Hsieh [TPE] vs Ng/Chan [CAN]
WS 32 - Tse [HKG] vs Li [CAN]
XD 32 - Lui/Ying [CHN] vs Ng/Gao [CAN]
May be a few more after tonight, but enjoy the first set of the WD for now. It has the end bits of the MD match between Vietnam (Nguyen/Tran) and China (Li/Lui).
07-13-2011, 04:58 PM #50
LOL! Just love how Bruce/Li sounds...
Now if only they could scale similar heights, and I hope they do!

Uploading what I can to my YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/towbsss?feature=mhee)
Be sure to check out footage as I might do something crazy soon and take down the entire channel. Grace and I got word today that we were denied funding for this year. We lose $18 000 from Sport Canada and another $6000 from our Provincial government. Also, we lose a year of tuition and a post-secondary institution in Canada. I will blog about the entire case shortly.
