With the launch of KODE5’s 2007 season, gamers have another series of exciting events to compete in as the Gaming Revolution spans the globe. Now, KODE5 Global Supporter Cooler Master is pleased to announce yet another exciting challenge – the Cooler Master $10,000 KODE5 Video Shootout! This contest gives gamers the opportunity to submit their best gaming-related videos for a chance to win not only some kick-:) Cooler Master gear, but also travel and accomodations to the KODE5 2007 Global Finals!

Entering the contest is easy. From October 01st, 2007 to February 01st, 2008, users are invited to sign up for a free account on Cooler Master’s official webpage (http://www.coolermaster.com). Then, users create a video and submit it to a video streaming site, such as YouTube or Google Video. The video must be gaming-related and at least three minutes in duration. Then, they can go to the contest page and fill in the contest form. Beginning in October, Cooler Master will view and judge all submitted videos once a month, and award prizes to the following categories:

1. Best Screenplay
2. Best Visual Effects
3. Audience Popularity Award

Not good at creating videos? Not to worry! Cooler Master will also be awarding prizes to the most active participants. There are even lucky draws each month for anyone who’s participated! Cooler Master has put together a massive list of prizes to be won, totalling over $8500 USD!

On February 01st, 2008, the participant with the best submitted video will win a trip to the KODE5 2007 Global Finals, courtesy of Cooler Master (approx. $1500 in value)! It will be a chance to see the world’s best gamers duke it out for the title of KODE5 2007 Global Champion live and in person. In total, over $10,000 in total prizes are up for grabs. This is one contest gamers cannot afford to miss!

“The revolution has begun and we need you to record the events as they unfold, “ said Lucas Wang, Cooler Master Marketing Specialist. “It is not only a video contest -- we expect that more gamers will come out and join the great revolution. That’s why Cooler Master has designed this contest for enthusiasts to show the gaming world through their eyes.â€

Halfway through the first month and most areas of the site are still not up. I hope the CM Event team gets all of the site working soon.

I hope you enjoy my submissions.

The site I use for embeding my videos to this competition allows for a handy function with its embedded streaming.
Right Click the video panel of any video I have hosted and select Preferences.
Go to desktop dimmer and change it to 1sec idol time.
When watching the little version of my videos in the browser.
It will Dim the background of the web page, making it easier to view the videos.
This is handy if your viewing one of my overly dark videos.

Amazingly You can Turn the Quality Right UP as Well!
What is being Viewed as Default can be increased yet again and the clarity...
AWESOME!
Same Deal, Right Click, Preferences, Video Playback, Full De-blocking & Sharpening.
Then sit back and Enjoy.
