the week it was 25th May 2008
New video captured the moment the earthquake devastated China. Art or child pornography? Full-frontal shots of apparently pubescent girls were on display in an art gallery. Here's the weekly The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is available in the usual H.264 format. Why do I use H.264 format? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.
New video captured the moment the earthquake devastated China. About 30 full-frontal shots of apparently pubescent girls by Bill Henson were on display in an art gallery. It was shut down by police. It caused a wide debate. Police planned to charge Bill Henson and the gallery.
For the sake of comparison, Hurricane Katrina in the States in 2005 caused around 2500 casualty; The Sichuan Earthquake (China), the casualties have raised over 60,000. How did the news coverage in western world treated those two event? Hurricane Katrina news remained on the headline for weeks; the Sichuan Earthquake? After first day or day, it has been off the headline, and almost being forgotten.
This time, the YouTube version is directly encoded and uploaded by Turbo.264 v1.3. Version 1.3 adds YouTube support, and I am testing if this direct YouTube support works out to be better.
Here's YouTube version:
The video clip is encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rates. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video.
