Wasted a whole day trying to get a video clip for here.

I am showing my age - technical things are starting to go way beyond my understanding. We were in Barnes and Nobel the other day - Bill was getting a Nook and I was wandering around. I discovered a WHOLE section with big thick books over one inch thick - on how to use my Galaxy cell phone. Even thicker ones for the Apple phones. I want an old rotary dial...
Today I have spent the better half of the day trying to figure out how to connect our Tablet to work with Bill's drone. The guy who sold it to him connected the phone to it. I think we have it figured out. And then I'm trying to figure out how to put videos from the drone on this site. The video he took for practice the other day was over 11 minutes long. So thought I'd edit it. Well first I needed to convert it from a MOV file to MP4 to use my editing program. Tried several so called "free" programs from the web. They were "free" for 1/3rd of one try. Didn't want to spend the money. Then I discovered I could use my other movie editing program. But it has been so long since I've used it it took me forever to get just one little clip. So here it is - Bill learning how to fly his drone, while it is taking pictures of him. The guy jumping around is teaching him.

I also think I found out how to change the MOV to MP4 from the camera - so that will help. But need to turn everything on, probably tomorrow.
Supposed to get rain again tomorrow.
