openvpn 2.0 on ubuntu 7.04 in the wild and on video

I decided to screw around some more and actually recorded the creation of my OpenVPN server. I did this mostly to do something I’ve never done before: make a video of something and cut it.

I used VNC on a Windows box to connect to my Ubuntu 7.04 server. I then recorded that window using CamTasia Studio 3.1, which I also used to add music, edit, and produce. The music is Baja by Sasha. The codec (CinePak codec by Radius) is the only codec available by default in CamTasia that worked on both my Windows box using VLC and Windows Media Player, and also on my Ubuntu laptop using Mplayer. If it doesn’t work for you, I suggest those players, or tough luck. Maybe I’ll choose something better and smaller next time, but for now, this was just a learning experience for me.

The video is over 190MB and runs 12:35. I don’t have a real hoster, so I’ll leave this video up for a few weeks (or hours if it brings me to a crawl!). If it is not available and you want it, email me and we’ll figure something out.

Suggestions are very welcome, but be aware I know this was a very amateur deal. 🙂
