    I'm going ahead and starting a new type of name that movie contest, so there will be two running at the same time for a little while, but I think they are different enough.


    This one will use mp3 audio clips. Some will have dialog, some will have theme music. Whatever I come up with.


    Anyone who has played one of my contests know I handle them a little differently than most others. Answers are submitted by email. There is no need to include the round #. It is in the email address in the link for each round. You will have to make sure your browser is configured to play back mp3 files, probably with Quicktime. These days, browsers are usually already configured this way.

    Guesses can be changed once for each round, but if you change your mind, you are stuck with the second guess.


    Back in a minute with the first round.

    I'll keep this one running a couple days to make sure there are no glitches.

    John, you might need to check out the properties of your audio file. When I play it in Win Amp it gives me the name of the clip, which contains the answer, not just the renamed filename you gave it.

    I would have got it anyway, but Simon is right the title is displayed in WinAmp.

    Neat idea for a contest though. [​IMG]

    You're right. I didn't even think about that. I'll post a new clip in a little while.

    I have to re-encode most of my clips in mp3 now

    OK, the new clip (without the answer embedded in it) is now up. Needless to say, guesses for the first clip need to be sent again for the new one.

    That new clip pretty much sums up how I feel about my chances in this contest.

    I seem to be downloading the same clip as before. Maybe it has something to do with the network at my workplace.

    I loaded the original clip Here to see if I don't have to re-encode everything. Could some of you guys check it in your players? It should now just read "01" in the title.

    Glad to see you finally got this thing up and running.

    Unfortunately, I'm drawing a blank here...

    Argh.

    Thanks, Alex.



    Only 1 answer so far.

    It isn't that tough, is it? I would have gotten this one in no time flat, and I think a lot of others should as well.

    I'm stumped on this one.

    Listened to it like 9 times in a row. Sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't place it.

    If I don't get more answers, a lot of people are going to be seriously kicking themselves.

    Ok, guys, I'm thinking that what John's reply to Alex was a hint...

    Guess this one is tougher than I thought.

    BTW, there is no penalty for wrong guesses.




    The next one will be easy, I promise. Not all of them will, though.

    OK, round 1 is a tough one. I would put a second clip, but I already got one correct answer. I'll let it run another day. This one, I guarantee, is easier.[c]



    Round 2
