You couldn't set your video to be paused to allow people to open it on their own? Playing automatically in someone else's instructable is bad form. I had to refresh several times to figure out where the garbage music was coming from. I thought it was the Toyota ads and almost left this otherwise fine page.

Sorry. I never wanted the video to autoplay and I could never figure out how to make it stop. Deleted.

Where did you get the remote arm and how much did it cost ? That adds a whole new meaning to the videos.

 Yeah....it has its limits.  But is a great alternative to spending hundreds on a dolly if you just need a simple shot.
