I figure it's time to try some things. Some will work, some won't. The thing I'm trying today: recording a Zoom call. My family did Easter via Zoom call on Sunday, and while participating on that call I had the idea that maybe I could record one while talking football. So I texted Martin and asked him to join me this evening. He obliged.
Now, it wouldn't be me without some hiccups. I intended to record the call in "gallery mode". If you've seen some recorded Zoom calls lately, they're in gallery mode, meaning you can see everyone participating. It.. did not record in gallery mode. So the screen will switch back and forth between my screen and Martin's screen. I watched a little of it - it gets annoying.
And the sound is awful. Right now you're probably thinking "it can't be that bad", but it's that bad. Next time I'll record with a mic or headphones or something because Martin's audio is at 4.4 and my audio is at 11. I should have done a test call to work out all these issues BEFORE publishing it on the site, but of course I didn't do that.
So if you're desperate for Illini content and are willing to put up with me yelling and can stomach the screen switching from Martin to me and back to Martin, well, here you go. Embarrassing myself yet again, this time on video.
