The Yule Log - Christmas by the Fireplace

The Yule Log - Christmas by the FireplaceThe Yule Log: Christmas By The Fireplace is perfect for the holidays or whenever! The soundtrack offers 3 options: Christmas music and fire crackling, music only, or fire crackling only.

The fireplace footage is so realistic and it seems as though the fire flames are dancing along with the beat of the music. The music soundtrack is mostly instrumental with a few songs with lyrics (Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer by Ray Charles, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, etc.). The Christmas songs featured offer a well-rounded soundtrack mixed with vocals, piano, jazz, and orchestra. Top notch!

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

This is a must-buy for the holidays but you can play it after the holidays, too!

While the video quality is great the videos themselves are stupid! What were they thinking!

I was expecting to see separate looping versions of a fireplace instead you get ONE version that rolls into another version that zooms ! how unrealistic can you get !

There is even one scene where they zoom into the char of the log... how stupid , especially on a 50 inch screen....

These scenes needed to be selectable and ONE fire at a time , never cut scene into a different fire.

The authors clearly do not understand the use of these videos. I like to pick the fireplace that fits the tv and room that its playing in then loop that particular fire , because not all scenes work .. it depends on you tv and layout... this video just rolls into one scene then the next..... just horrible.

Not one scene in this video shows a fireplace from start to finish , which should take 20 minutes or so... these fires on this video last like 3 minutes then its on to the next cut scene... really useless if your trying to create a faux fireplace using your plasma or lcd in a certain setting that creates an illusion that a real fireplace is burning in a room.... the cut scenes and zoom really are lame.

This was the worst fireplace dvd I have ever bought and sadly it was the most expensive.

I was concerned that this wouldn't be up to hi-def standards and was pleasantly suprised. The 1080i video is very good, the 5.1 Dolby TrueHD music is very good, and even the crackling of the fireplace is very good. The fireplace is so realistic that my kids and I found that we experience a strange warm sensation when we walk by the lcd tv. Go figure...

Image is first rate. Too bad the soundtrack didn`t follow. Song selections are too jazzy and not what I would prefer to hear for such a holiday. Also, no vocals, just instruments. This picture with a traditional Xmas soundtrack of holiday standards would have been the ultimate. There are a many beautiful tracks that will get you in the sprit and the option of the crackling fireplace sounds along with the music is a stroke of genius. Dvd is worth the cost, just dont expect the versions you grew up with. Happy Holidays.Cheers!

Want The Yule Log - Christmas by the Fireplace Discount?

I just recently updated my entire home theater. I picked up this product for the novelty of it and it has been a great buy. I play it when we're playing cards or doing some other non-TV related activity in the living room and it adds ambiance to the room.

You can turn the music off and still listen to the fireplace itself, and there is no background noise like I've seen complaints with other similar DVDs. The picture quality is very high as well! Of course this product only has limited uses but it's nice to have handy.
