The Hugelkultur Micro Documentary is done. For those of you that supported the kickstarter, you already got an email directing you to how to view your copy. For the rest of you, you can download a copy for three bucks. I think there are a dozen hugelkultur sites in this 16 minute long micro-doc. Including the stuff for the lemon tree site:

Kate,

Are you saying that you "bought" the micro doc? From scubbly or via kickstarter?

What is your operating system?

Kate, I had the same problem, but when I opened it with VLC video player, it worked flawlessly. I'd either try that FREE player or try something else.

Loved the video. Jealous of the clay content and organic matter in the soil in both California and Montana. I live on an acidic sand bar called Florida!

LOVED seeing the shots of wheaton laboratories!!! Fantastic and actually quite thrilling.

I'll +1 what was said earlier about using VLC to play videos.
Other players like QuickTime and Windows Media Player are unpredictable, but VLC plays every kind of video on all platforms - Mac, Windows, and even Linux.

It's a good audio player, too. It plays audio formats that iTunes et al don't understand.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the microdoc on hugel kultur.

Unfortunately, I had the same problem as another poster. I'm on a recent Mac and the latest operating system.

The video is jittery and and has no sound when played in Quicktime Player.

Would you be willing to re-encode if indeed this is the case for everyone trying to use quicktime player?

Whty the need to download another video player for what should be easy compatibility with Quicktime as an mp4?

Thank you!

Chris

VLC works fine and it's free. Try it!

Thanks Kate, I have VLC and produce videos!

I'm just suggesting to make it easier for permies and scubbly in the future.

They'll keep getting inquiries every time somebody tries to download and play with a common setup.

And of course, I don't want to have to re-encode it to play on my iPad.

I am able to duplicate the problem on my end.

This is a file that I created - so it's my fault. Since Bart is the expert in this space, I've asked Bart if he can send me a better file for downloading. Hopefully he will get me something this morning.

Most of my struggles are currently with file transfer. It takes a very long time for me to upload. And the connection is just spotty enough to make it take 10 times longer. We are looking into better internet.

Awesome !!! Loved it, thought it was funny that our hugel beds look a lot the same... I had been wondering about the lemon tree in Montana, I'm gonna try it here in WV, is there a specific type of lemon you are looking at trying or a kind you may be wondering about that I could try, I'm all for helping with the experiment....I have added a bed between the large and small hugels where i'll place the tree, hoping the heat will focus there in the winter, and be shaded enough not to burn it up in the summer...
