      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Can you get video from AquaVu straight to laptop?

I was told there is a way to record video straight to a laptop without a video camera or anything in between. Is this possible? It would have to be via a PCMCIA card or some sort of AV to USB adaptor, right???

I am very interested in doing this if its possible as I do not have a video camera to record to at this time.

Let me know how that works, I would be interested to see that. It must be more than just a cable...

Found several things actually. One is just a cable. 2 different video in jacks that "Y" in to on USB out that plugs in to your PC. That runs around 70.00.

Another that I found is made by Plextor. Its a small box about the size of a 35 mm camera or maybe a bit smaller that has input for 2 audio channels (left and right, I assume), video and s-video on one side and USB out and AUX out on the other side. No power source that I see, and includes a good amount of software. That runs about 50.00 after a rebate. do a google search for Plextor ConvertX PX-AV100U Digital Video Converter USB 2.0 if you are interested in knowing more.

I think I will be ordering the plextor one after I do a little more checking to make sure it will work.

I'm the guy who started that thread. I just got my camera and will be experimenting with the WINTV-USB device, my Aqua-VU, and my laptop this weekend. When I get it all figured out, I'll post a report.

I don't have time right now to write a long report, but I thought I'd post up that it works, and works well. I was able to capture a bunch of fish on video to my laptop, including a walleye hitting a jigging rap. The file sizes were large, and I need to experiment on how to optimize it. They were running in the 80 to 200 MB range.

I'll post more when I get the time, and I figure it out some more.

Thanks Brad.

I am going to try going to a camcorder and then to the laptop for now until I can afford to get the adaptor for the laptop.

Thanks again for the follow up post.

Brad,

Are you using the HAuppage one you mentioned earlier? I will have to recommend it to customers if it does work well.

jpz,

Yes, I'm using the Hauppage WinTV-USB device along with their WinTV 2000 application. I updated the sofware and the drivers from their website (free) before I started using it.

The video quality is pretty good, though I really need to figure out how to make a viewable piece in a smaller file size. I also haven't figured out how (if it can be done?) to not capture the audio track in recording.

It may take me a while to figure this all out, but I'll post a report when I do.
