Re: iPhone X Photography

BTW, here's my most ambitious iPhone X photography project so far, a three-hour-long time lapse of a Thatching Ant hill. The resulting video is 24 MB, which should be no problem for those of you lucky enough to have high-speed internet. At some point I'll see if I can compress it more. I shot it on ...

Apple TV 4 and Closed Captioning

I recently ran into a problem where my Apple TV 4 suddenly had the default for Closed Captioning switched to ON. But it gets worse. I couldn't turn it off. No matter what the preference said, any film with CC available showed the CC. It turns out there was a tvOS update available, so I installed tha...
