Video from RoboGames 2008

Totally Offensive failed to repeat as RoboGames champion when the battery suffered a catastrophic failure and gutted the inside of the robot. Oh well, sometimes you're the meatgrinder, and sometimes you're the meat -- in this case, well-done meat!

While not putting out fires, the boys and I captured both HD and High-Speed footage of almost all of the fights.

The High-Speed videos just contain the hits and airtime; some fights didn't have any such moments, so I haven't edited them up. In some of the high-speed videos, there's a bit of flicker; this was due to the venue lights being accidentally turned on. Also, the available light was just barely enough, so there is a bit of noise in the video caused by the camera trying to compress low-level signals on the fly.

The HD videos contain the entire fight at 1/4 HD resolution (divided by 2 both horizontally and vertically). Camera position for the HD videos was not as good as I would like on the first two days, but I found a better window on Sunday. I am kicking myself for not being able to find it earlier.

Fights appear in (more or less) chronological order within their weight class. If you notice any mistakes, mislabellings, or problems with particular videos, please email me and let me know. The HS links are the high-speed video, and the HD links are the high-def.

As these videos are encoded with the H.264 codec, you will need Quicktime 7 in order to view them. So if none of the videos play for you, that's probably the issue. If you have video problems (freezes, for example) at the start of the clips, this is probably because not enough of the clip is being downloaded before QT starts playing it; you can fix that by changing your Quicktime settings so that Quicktime waits longer before starting to play the clip and/or telling Quicktime your network connection is a bit slower.
