To create a video clip your computer needs a video capture card; I
don't know if Mark has one or not. Most cards come with software to edit
the clips and convert them to QuickTime or .avi format.
I've been emailing video files to my professor at UNM, and I've
found that they can get pretty big: depending on the frame rate,
resolution and color depth they can be over a megabyte for a few seconds
of video. It turns out that by using a compression program, I can reduce
that to under 100KB per second of video. Zip compression works for
Windows and Unix, and Mac users can use Stuffit.
