So. Here's the deal:
1. I (Aaron Emphatic) was supposed to post yesterday. I made plans to sit down at night and edit my video from Graduation. But leave it to my friends to screw that up completely. They drove me to a friend's house and threw me a surprise graduation party. I was stuck there until the wee hours of the morning without my computer and without a link to the internet. So no video yesterday.
2. Today, I sit down with my new camera and upload all of my footage. My camera saves files in mp4 format. I edit using Windows Media Player. WMP does not recognize mp4 format and won't allow me to edit a single video clip. fml.
3. I spend 2 and a half hours trying to download codecs and file format converters to remedy the situation. None of them work. (Well, the converters work, but take a lifetime to do even the smallest task...).
4. Conclusion to the story is that I need to go purchase better video editing software. One that will not ruin my life.
My next post will be a graduation post. I promise. Until then... a video that many of you have seen already:
The Modern Man.
