the week it was, 2 November 2008

Obama leads the poll in US Election, many white Americans aren't ready for a black president. Here's the weekly The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is available in H.264 format. Why do I prefer H.264 video codec? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.

QuickTime: The Week It Was

(Click the screenshot above to watch the video clip)

20-year-old Daniel Cowart and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman were arrested for plotting to assassinate US Presidential hopeful Obama. The main motivation, Obama is black. Former US President Clinton endoursed Obama. Sydney's Coogee Bay Hotel and the infamous faeces scandal continues. (Initially, the Hotel initially offered $5000 for the Whyte family, the Whyte family demanded $1 million, the hotel refused. Next, the Whyte family made a huge story to media. Then, the Hotel revealed that Whyte wanted $1 million for faeces-like substance in the ice cream. The Whyte family demanded releasing of security video. Today the hotel released the footage, and it was found the Whyte's story were inconsistent.) Another bad news for Qantas Airline, lucky again, no casualties. A Qantas airline lost its weather radar and followed an Air New Zealand flight to Auckland before returning to Australia. Stephanie Rice won the Swimmer of the Year award. Australian Olympic captain Grant Hackett announced his retirement from swimming. (He now read sports news for National Nine News Melbourne.)

Personally I found YouTube's video quality is usually less than direct video download or streaming, I know there are many people prefer YouTube. For those who prefer videos in YouTube format, here's YouTube version:

H.264QuickTime 7The 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.
