this is a test,

what do you think of this film? Does it work? How long does it take to load it up?

CLICK on the GAS MOVIE link to see it

I am on ADSL and found it slow to operate through your webpage. It was quicker to copy (download) the movie which is 1.83 meg, and play it separately on my computer.

PS 20 seconds is not a bad time to get the mask on ;)

bkristof,

1 meg is still large especially for anyone who is not on ADSL

I have made it smaller so see what you think. Can you PM an address I can email it to?

From the time I clicked the link to play the clip, through Media Player opening, then the loading/buffering... took 8 seconds. But I am on 1.5 meg cable connection..... still pretty darn fast though.

The idea behind it is to have several of such a short films on our website.

Such as: gun drill, gas drill, Lewis stripping, Gun stripping, Lewis fire drill,...

Not just for fun, but also to provide info to our visitors.

I hope you like the idea.

I agree with Tom- looks realistic and will be a good addition to your web site.

I am looking forward to the MG section. are you doing one on the Vickers?

Does anyone know about such a small training films in WW1 ????

I know in WW2 it was very popular.

That is quite a useful wee film. Thanks very much.

I will say that 20 seconds seems like a long time. The diary of the Canadian Corps Chemical Advisor in 1917 gives the acceptable time for adjusting the small box respirator as 6 seconds from the "alert" position, or 8 seconds from the "slung" position. 20 or 22 seconds is about the time expected to adjust the "PH" helmet.

Kristof,

Very impressive film, and as many have said, it looks very authentic and grainy. However, as Jhill has said, the time that was required to put on a gas mask was recorded to be seven seconds at the most.

But a wonderful film! I hope to see more :)

P.S. Also, speaking of the "how long does it take to load" question. An idea to have it load faster is simply right clicking, and "save target as". So you don't have to wait to connect, and just watch it any time you want.

the movie looks smashing. Have clocked your training gasmask was put on in 8 sec. and helmet on in 12 sec. so putting on your gasmask time wasn't so bad. :D keep training and youll be the expert.

coo-ee
