I've had a brief play with Kino and managed to get some footage from the 
camera. I need to look at editing and converting for DVD. I've got a few 
tapes of the kids that I would like to convert. I'm not bothered about fancy 
effects, just the basics.

Maybe Jason can give us a demo at a meeting.

Happy Xmas/Midwinter/Whatever everyone.
