Hi, I spoke with Jay sometime ago about my interest in videoblogging(or more specifically regional videoblogging. ie NYC). Unfortunately, I haven't had time to do much but I'm still interested. As someone stated before, the tools would help greatly in getting off the ground. Maybe you guys should post this as proposed project at Sourceforge.net. Sourceforge.net is a community of civic-minded programmers that design open source freeware. If you got all the programmers in this group to designn a white paper and post it there, you might interested folks to help crack this tough nut. (a white paper is a kinda blueprint/wishlist of a proposed software.) Here's some example of projects Jahshaka - 3D Video Compoer http://.jahshaka.sourceforge.net CinePaint http://cinepaint.sourceforge.net Also, contact the programmer at DeBugMode and see if he might be interested. http://www.debugmode.com I hope this helps.

I used to do alot javascript apps back in the day. Is there a way to use the following coding language to design an online tool either to automate the process or to generate code. Online tools to automate the creative process: 1. Videoblogging Video Player- to display everybody's video within a TV-like screen and remote control-like navigation(ALPHA) 2. Videoblogging SMIL Code Generater - to create text caption and hyperlinks to include in QT movies(ALPHA) Here's the puzzle pieces. Can someone figure out a way to make them work together to do what we want. Pieces of the Puzzle: Javascript The heart of the app's functionality Reference: You can find sample codes for examples on how to create functionality in app. http://www.javascripts.com Dynamic HTML Create Hidden menus/pages, keystroke selection, etc. 2 framed HTML container(video and video selection) RSS Feed Makes it easy to create dynamic content Convert RSS Feed to Javascript to include in webpage or web app Quicktime(Video format for both Mac & PC) SMIL movie allows hyperlink within video (Design app to automate process for authors) Visual Interface Solutions Flash or Java Flash It provides you a great way to show quick loading preview clips of larger videos(convenient for folks with only dial-up internet access) BitTorrent (Allow members to download larger video) Hyperlinks (Links to resouces like Archive.org, RSS2JS, etc.) Sometimes you can do some amazing things with simple coding language.

I too would appreciate a step-by-step manual (downloadable ebook) or demonstration videoblog. A mock vlog with glossary terms for each component. And a service guide to various videoblogging host and tools thats categoried by end users skill level(beginner, immediary, guru). Also, with the ebook manual you include practice exercises to help get beginners up and running. Other suggestions: Video capturing equipment guide Listing videophones, digicams and webcams that are ideal for videoblogging(mp4 vs avi format) Also, indicate if videoblogging services and tools are free or not. If someone could provide the content, I be happily willing to assemble it. It would be great marketing tool to recruit new members. Subject: Re: I laugh.. Ha Ha! Don't worry Clueless, I think everybody here is trying to figure stuff out. But you are right, ok, one thing at a time. Relax! Posting videos is fun. However, I do think (and I am a heavy-duty techie) that video blogging is too hard to do for the non-tech. What I think really needs to be figured out, so we can tell new folks, non-techs, and even the press is probably: (a) "best format to post with" (some thing that EVERYBODY can use/watch) (b) A place to get started to easily post stuff (maybe http://vblogcenteral or something) (c) Explainations of simple jargon like: TrackBack and what a news feed is. > Help me out people! Can't someone already in the know post a simple >... [View]

Hi, Videobloggers, I'm glad to see how this group is going. Individual encounter a problem and we collectively come up with a solution. It think that someone should organizing all these how-to and placing a knowledge base document? EXAMPLES. Solutions for branding video The idea is for us all to share our own ways of getting around a certain issue. There's more ways that one wayy to skin a cat. or in our case videoblog. We could arrange topics into categories (SOLUTIONS FOR PCS/ AND MACS/GETTING STARTED/TOPIC IDEAS FOR VIDEOBLOGGING S/ HOW TO TELL A STORY/ TOOLS AND HOW -TO/ ETC./ --YOU GET THE IDEA) ====================================================== From: Cassius Bullemhead <cassiusbullemhead@...> Subject: Branding in MovieMaker 12-step program for adding brand to bottom of video in Windows Movie Maker: 1. Make sure your display is set to "Timeline" 2. Lay in your video 3. Go to TOOLS > TITLES AND CREDITS 4. Select "Add Title on the Selected Clip in the Timeline" 5. Enter your text 6. Go to More options > Change Title Animation 7. Select "Subtitle" 8. Go to More options > Change Text Font and Color 9. Select a font that is easily readable when small and a color that contrasts to your video 10. Click the Size-down button (An "A" with a down arrow next to it) until it appears small enough in your preview window (I use the smallest setting) 11. Set position to either right or... [View]

Thank you ladies. You brought up for great ideas to "ways" this could be done. I love when folks open their mind to think outside the box. We need have a way to record and document this suggestions, ideas and concept in an organized fashion for future vloggers to browse. I've been lurking for sometime so I thought appropriate to start contribution to the broader discussion. Videoblogging is such promising medium. I want to see it take off and open the doors for others to follow.

I heard member inquiring about tools for video editting their vlogs. Well there a yahoogroups that I belong to that has a list of freeware that you could to edit your stuff. http://yahoogroups.com/groupFree4Filmmakerz/files You can subscribe and get the list. --- On the topic of video editing, I think we need to add links that explains that whole process. It think it would be helpful to some members with non-editing experience.
