Jam Enslaver Plays...Shadow of the Colossus - Episodes 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16

The final episodes of my journey through Shadow of the Colossus were largely uneventful from a technical perspective, until I got to the last episode. I'm still not entirely sure what happened, but for some reason the two hour original episode that I recorded disappeared after the usual encoding step that the Roxio software does to turn it into an MP4. I suspect that my hard drive ran out of space as it was trying to write the new file.

The most frustrating thing about this is that the whole episode recorded perfectly well, and I even saw the video file sitting where it always does as an M2TS file, which Roxio uses for the conversion and then deletes. I suspect that the Roxio software wasn't written to expect file write errors and even though the newly encoded MP4 didn't get saved to the hard drive it went ahead and deleted the source file anyway!

Oh well, I recorded another episode which was much shorter and finished off the series. I've been thinking of a few ideas of what I'm going to do next, one of which is something not related to videos so I'll talk more about that when I have more to show. Other ideas for different video series that I might do are taking shape so we'll see what comes of that.

Thank you again for watching!
