I have the new ZI6 by Kodak and it is supposed to be you tube compatible right out of the box. However I made the movies, uploaded them, and they turned out to be the wrong size.

Also I would like to add that this explorer was a gift from my grandfather. The dealership only wanted to give him "A few hundred bucks" when he wanted to trade it in. I said I would buy it off of him for more than that. Well he ended up just giving it to me and he even paid the fee to transfer the title! I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful family. Thanks Poppo! (thats been his nickname since I was little)

Heres pics, Enjoy.

Only 86,000 miles!

Unfortunately, there are also inherant<sp> security holes concerned with doing such.

Not saying it's hard to do, just saying it's more time to keep on top of it :)

as to the topic at hand, great vids!
