That doesn't seem quite right. I've rented regular movies that are 3
hours and fit on 1 DVD. Why should I need 3 of them for NTSC?

But the video wouldn't need to be full resolution, necessarily. The
3.5 minute clip I put on my site was 20 MB at the small size. Hmmm...
50 times that is about 1 GB, so that's a little more than a CD.
Actually, though, I just fast forwarded the tape (I hadn't watched the
whole thing), and it's actually just over 2 hours. So we're right
about at CD capacity.

Still, a DVD might be better to hand around. It'll play in regular
players, not just on computers. I don't have a DVD burner though... if
someone wants to do that...
