    Sweet song and sweet flowy trail...nice vid, thanks for sharing. Perhaps build a few interesting natural-ish obsticals here and there that increase your air time...

    I think when he and I mention jumps, its not what you imagine. You should perhaps try to understand and try to use the terrains NATURAL elements to incorporate some jumps - [which can simply be only about 1 to 2 feet high at best if need be, nothing like 6 foot ramps or anything] . Even on some of the sides of the trail you could simply add a little dirt here and there so that when you hit it, you can do some smaller jumps. They do not have to be like DH/ FR styled jumps because the trail is only XC orientated at best and more extreme stuff is simply not suitable perhaps and against the counties land code...(?) I am not sure. But use the land to your advantage in an intelligent manner, then you can have some serious fun when you are ploughing through the trail.

    I think those forms of jumps and elevations are not going to inhibit any trail users at all if you think about the way the land is arranged and how it is used. Just my POV though...at any rate, nice trail and have fun riding it lol.

    Thanks for showing us that, one of the reasons I'm considering the GoPro.

    I highly recommend getting the wide version of GoPro. It seems to eliminate most of the shaking from the trails and allows for better camera mounting options. Otherwise it's an awesome product!

    Thanks for the comments! The 5mp Wide version does work great. The vid is actually lots better than what you see on Vimeo.
    Here's another Vid, in case anyone forgot to see all five I have posted.....

    It was from a racing car clip on Youtube - I recorded it and sync'ed it up with the corvette clip. Hopefully it isn't copyrighted.

    Awesome! Thanks for posting, I just got a GP wide that I am eager to try out on the trail, but we've been covered in snow here in the PacNW. Looks like a good product and jealous of the dry trails. Can't wait for my trip to SW Utah this late winter!

    Ride On!

    adding music

    I also just got a GoPro Helmet Hero 5 wide for Christmas!

    What I am noticing is that when I put music to the video, which I do with Windows Movie Maker (WMM), the quality of the video diminishes and becomes a bit jerky. This is made even worse when I upload to YouTube. When I upload the video straight from the SD card without editing or adding music the quality is very good. A couple of questions:

    1. Is there a way of adding music to the video without changing the video through editing software like WMM?

    2. How can you maintain the video quality, whilst still editing and adding music with WMM?

    3. My music is all in iTunes - the files don't seem to be recognised by WMM (or even other editing packages). I find iTunes infuriating sometimes. But is there an easy way of being able to use these iTunes files in WMM?

    Thanks! I'll post some vids soon...

    The Hero wide+vimeo combo looks really good.

    as others have said, Vimeo seems to keep the quality pretty good. I've been toying around with WMM and adding music, chopping video, etc. It's pretty good, but I've noticed that the output is the most important part. Play around with the different "saving techniques". When you go to save a finished movie, click on "other settings" and try out diffferent outputs. High quality looks good for playing on your computer, I've been using the "video for LAN" option with decent results.

    i've got two up right now.

    Thanks FloridaFish.

    I think the issue is the fps - WMM saves as 25 frames per second (fps) whereas the GoPro records at 30 fps. So even when you save at the highest quality WMM has to offer, there is degradation.

    I guess we need a freeware video editor that is as simple as WMM but saves at 30 fps. Anyone out there with any ideas?

    Also, does anyone know what to do about importing iTunes music files into movies (WMM doesn't recognise the files)?

    Anyone out there from GoPro?

    Come to think of it, we should ask someone from GoPro to recommend a video editor that doesn't degrade the quality (but doesn't cost very much, if anything...). They must know which video editors are best for their cameras, and for posting the movies on YouTube which is what most people use these days.

    I have had good luck with Cyberlink PowerDirector. I used it during my testing I just completed on MTBR.com of the HERO camera. I have used WMM and was not pleased with the results. I haven't had good results uploading to YouTube, raw or edited footage, Vimeo is much better.
