George's Farewell

Thank you for all who attended George's memorial and celebration of his life. You made it a special time of which George would have been proud. After George's video, people were invited to the buffet to share their stories of George with people they did not know.

George's farewell video is now available for you. I would like to discuss some technical details and research to make this process as easy as possible. The format of George's video is MP4 which is relatively new and is not supported by Microsoft Media Center, RealPlayer and some other popular media players as yet. Google Chrome does provide playback and download. Also, there is free software such as AVS Media Player which downloads rather cleanly and provides excellent playback. Below are options for you.

Download George's farewell video directly to your computer. Click on the save option when the dialogue box opens:

If you have trouble downloading the video, set up the Google Chrome browseron your computer, come back to this blog, select download video again. Right click on the image as it's playing and use the "save as" feature.
