dancing in Fontainebleau at night

Here is a film of people dancing in Fontainebleau, taken without flash with my Fuji FinePix F30:

The short video is 42MB large on my drive. Google Video clearly has compressed that into some flash format, but I can't tell by how much. Downloading the file in the embed tag that brings up the above player by running curl -o dancing.flash http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=6927328867867589096, I get a 76k file which can't be the video, as that would be an unbelieveable factor of 500 compression from the original avi!

I tried using the resulting output file to see if I could run the video locally, but without success. So there is probably something else to it. My guess is that the 74k file is just there to lay out the screen, and that withing it are links to the video files on the remote host.

Anyway the original video is a lot sharper.
