How do you take it from the camera to the forum?

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

The camera records onto a micro SD card. I download video to PC. Right now I'm doing my video editing with Windows Media player and Windows Photos. Both are easy for this beginner. Then I upload to YouTube inorder to post to forum. There might be better ways but for this video rookie it's the easiest way.

What are other cameras that others use? Does it matter to see the license plates any better than this one?

This is the one I bought. I know at two other forum members have the same one. I stabilized the mount some yesterday and got rid of some of the bouncing. With Houston roads being as rough as they are I'm not going to get rid of it all. I'll post a clip when I get home from work of the same stretch of road to see if it's any better. I know I could move the camera to my helmet and video would smooth out, I just don't want it there. As far as reading license plates, depends on what you are watching it on. On my phone, too small, on tablet, can usually read, on PC with larger screen it's pretty good.

Video looks good and awesome spot to mount it. I was playing Where's Waldo there for a bit. I have a cheapo "action camera" I use on about half my rides. I found that 1. make sure image stabilization is ON and 2. make sure you tighten it down super tight. I have weak wrists due to an old repetitive motion injury and was having a heck of a time getting the camera off my bike, so I eased off the crank-down of the screw... bad idea, the videos were shaky as all get out, just another 1/8 of an inch in tightening down made all the difference in the world.

These were recorded today. The first one was on the same road and same speed as others I have posted as a test. This one is with bracket support installed and I like the results. Yes, @yamahaPat, that is Hotel California background music just for you.
Second video is a short one with bike reflection in tailgate of pickup, video camera to pick that up pretty good. Just need to figure out getting rid of the sun spots on the lenses. Overall I'm pretty happy. Comments?

The videos play for me. Had a coworker look and they played for him. Anyone else not able to see them?

Could be because I'm in Canada. Some YouTube videos are unavailable here, although not often.
