Loading Video problems
« on: March 08, 2018, 01:01:28 PM »
I have been trying to load several short videos, 2-3 minutes, but no luck. I went to spike camp loading videos and when I load it and click post, it just doesn’t load on to the post no matter how long I wait.

The videos are short and I think  members might enjoy them.

I have a video shot while I was deer hunting, in northern Michigan, from my shack, filming a snowshoe rabbit at first light nibbling on an apple when all of a sudden a snowy owl swoops down and I watched it’s talons sink into the rabbit.
 On another video, in lower Michigan, my then, 10 year old, nephew was sitting with me and used my phone to film a really nice buck as it was coming out of the swamp, about 20 yards from my shack. I shot and missed it. He couldn’t wait to tell his mom and dad about that and show them the video. I told him if he squealed on me I was going to say he bumped the gun. He couldn’t believe I would say that. He kept saying to me “Uncle Johnny, if you tell dad I bumped you he’ll believe you and that’s not fair”.

Another short video, Northern Michigan,where a young spike buck comes right up to my shack and sticks his nose in the window opening and I tap it on the nose. I found it a heck of a lot funnier then he did.

The best is when a red squirrel gets inside our Northern Michigan hunting camp while we are playing cards and I film three old men chasing that squirrel going all over the place and trying to throw rugs over it to catch it. I saw how hilarious it was and stopped chasing it, picked up my phone and taped it. These were hunters that have travelled all over the world hunting big game and couldn’t catch a four inch squirrel. We thought we cornered it behind a couch. We were wrong. My brother finally brought his German shorthair pointer inside camp and it pointed that squirrel hiding behind the antlers of a mounted whitetail on the wall on the other side of the room. Joel kept bringing the dog over to the where we “knew” it was and the dog would run to the opposite side of the room and point and look up at the deer mount.

I was filming a nice mule deer buck, in Wyoming, my brother was getting ready to shoot when all of a sudden a cougar comes into view, crouched down and stalking that deer about 30 ft behind it. My brother then made a decision which one he should shoot.

There are more videos but I can’t figure out this video loading problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you are arguing with an idiot and someone passes by, they don't know who's the idiot.

Sounds like some good viewing. Hopefully some of the Weatherby people will see this post and be able to help.
