Video Stabilization / GoPro HD

I recently bought the Hero HD GoPro....takes excellent videos. But I have one small problem, only good place to mount on my R1 is on the front fairing. This causes a lot of vibration in the videos. I'm looking for some good video stabilization software that can correct the problem after the fact. Hit me up if you know of some good software that can stabilize the video without degrading the overall quality.

After downloading half a dozen trial versions of video editing software, I found a pretty decent one. Video was the first trial run of a Hero HD GoPro and edited with the trial version of Power Director Ultra. Before editing the video, it was pretty darned shaky. I was able to stabilize it without the video being degraded too much.

I have a mount similar to this one on my gixxer:
http://www.r1-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4390814

I bought mine generic off of Ebay though.
This might work better for you.
I dont have a GoPro, just a compact Sony Handycam that still works great.

i was going to mount mine off the back with an arm off to the left. The helmet cam angle sucks on the Wide cams.

I like the suction cup mount of the GoPro. Easy on, easy off....plus I can get it out of the tank area and out of my way.

The suction mount has too much flex for me, I tried it on the front fairing as well. I used one of the "clips" with double sided tape and it took a lot of the bouncing out. The wide version of the GoPro seems to stabilize better as well.

was this with the suction cup? on the front fairing? or with the double sided tape mount? if the quick release plates, use the orange nose plug looking thing.

I tried the suction cup mount, but like everyone else said it vibrates too much. I would use the sticky mounts.

I found that on the Wide HD even using the sticky mounts left an annoying rattle. Duct tape on the slide on the mounting clip created a very tight fit and eliminated wobble.

I used the suction cup mount. True there is too much flex to it when mounted up front like that. Hence the reason I was looking for video stabilization software to fix the video after the fact. I didn't want to use the other mounting options that came with the camera.

i'm surprised that your suction cup bounces that much...mine is solid as a rock. could it be the fairing flexing?

It's a combination of 3 things
1) suction cup flex
2) fairing flex
3) mount location (front wheel gets the brunt of every road dimple)
