And I'm glad you liked the mission (if you actually did xD), and yes, it isn't supposed to be easy. :P I haven't even done it actually, though I've got a few strategies I could use, if I ever feel like trying it out for myself. xD
I hope you give it another go sometime, and I hope more people take on this challenge as well. (:
I have a lot of trouble with YouTube's uploading system, and a lot of times when I just leave it to queue uploads, I'll come back to see that some of them failed or all of them on one occasion, so that's like several hours wasted of trying to upload videos. Also, my family is all about conserving electricity, so they don't just let me leave my computer if I'm not actually at it for whatever I'm doing. Another stupid thing that bugs the shit out of me is if I leave my computer alone and it goes into sleep mode, it'll decide it's gonna cut off the wireless connection, so my upload just gets aborted anyway. It's really quite annoying.
Fighting the level 77 Zidane and trying to get his HP to stay below 7,777 was a tremendous pain, since out of all the times I actually had to fight him, he was persistent about having 7,800 HP. And I had to forfeit the match multiple times to keep him from having annoying summons like Leviathan, Phoenix, or Demon Wall, and then even more to keep switching out weapons and equipment so I wouldn't do too much damage and just get 9,999 Brave every time I hit him. But aside from all those tiny little annoyances, it was actually a decent way to test out whatever apparent skill I had with Tidus. I've been wanting to improve my game, but it's hard to do against AIs and not real people. x.x I can't do Ad-Hoc party since I have a wireless router instead of a cable connection and the PS3 belongs to my older brother anyway who pretty much hogs it all the time to play stupid Call of Duty (which he sucks at, by the way).

Ah yeah, well anyway the video wasn't that horrible, so if using WMM cuts the upload time then of course you should do that. (:
And yes, the 77 Zidane isn't just because he would be level 77, matching the mission.
I checked beforehand how much HP, brave and what equipment he could have, and it fit perfectly. Since fighting a level 77 Zidane, you have to have a bit further luck, to actually get him to have less than 7777 hp, and to avoid the summons. But even if your brave would go past 7777, there are a lot of ways to lower it again, just get creative.
But still as I said, you should be proud with the 1250 score, so I wouldn't make retrying my first priority, I'm just a perfectionist by nature. x)
I dislike not giving mission my all and getting perfect scores. :P
But for me, it's not as much about the score, I just want to do the challenges the way the commissioners intended, to test my skills and brain. And I love trying to figure out loop-holes and easy ways to complete missions, but not everyone take as much joy in missions as I do, so to each his own. (:
I'm a horrendous perfectionist too, so I might go back again and try to do it with all the bonuses, but it's certainly not high on my list of priorities. :P The Chocobo Kick one would probably be the hardest thing for me to do. Zidane actually screwed me up the first time with Chocobo Kick and I had to forfeit the fight.

Well, here's my first attempt at this mission.

Nothing, thumbs up on the incredibly fast attempt! (:
Total score: 2200
Really well done! That's almost a perfect score! Now the only thing left would be the Smooth Moves bonus, if you feel like aiming for the top.
I hope you enjoyed the mission, you completed it nicely!
Wow, that was a rather fast with the scoring. Besides the urge of wanting to kill off a chocobo, I had some fun doing this mission. I'll probably go for the perfect score once I'm not too lazy to do some calculations. Thanks for the mission, Shilag.
Am I not good enough to have my score on the OP? Just kidding.
I was watching anime (lol), so I figured I'd at least give a quick grading, but forgot the rest. :P
Edit: Ugh, I get dissy from all the code, trying to get the colours to fit nicely. xD
I think I've got it now, though. :P

Don't worry about it. As long as it's good anime, I can forgive you.
