Hi, I've got a vlog at: http://www.lisaharper.org. There aren't many vlog posts yet. So there is a category for them: http://www.lisaharper.org/archives/category/gear-and- technology/vlogging/vlog-posts/ I use a camera phone for vlogging, though it requires viewers to use QuickTime 6.5 and allow a QT activeX control to be installed. I found this yahoo list through videoblogging.info. Glad to see this site emerge! Lisa [View]

This is such a wonderful idea. I wish I understood BSL (or ASL, for that matter)! From my point of view, the titles of your posts are a sort of thread summary of a particular conversation. I can see why some people are very interested in the "metadata" problem for video. Ideally, you'd like to be able to search on the content of video, too. Because in your case, the content is language! (I'm a computational linguist, by the way, so this is really exciting stuff to me.) There are definitely people (at universities) working on this problem for content-based video retrieval... but I doubt they imagined people using video the way you are. This stuff is pretty far out... you'd most likely combine gesture understanding with a standard such as MPEG-7 which provides the means for encoding metadata for content indexing and retrieval. In the near term, I guess you already know, your best bet is manual annotation of videos. Ideally, you want a tool that can automatically segment your video into smaller chunks which you can then easily markup with useful descriptions or key words. I'm really enjoying using a camera phone that allows me to capture... [View]

--0-1897779599-1093952324=:58829 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Have you seen Quindi? http://www.quindi.com. It's designed for meeting playback. It's not at all suitable for videoblogging... but it gives you a strong flavor of something that has capabilities that you might want for authoring content for videoblogging. You've got one to two video panes, an annotation pane, and the ability to screen grab at arbitrary or fixed or user-determined intervals (e.g., for synchronizing a PowerPoint presentation). There is a nice playback capability where you can search on annotation text and go to a specific place in the timeline. You can also playback at variable rates. What's not good is that: 1) you can't export to a web-based standard (e.g., SMIL) for playback in a browser; 2) they are very limited in video sources that you can use and how you use them; and 3) they do a lousy job compressing meeting files for playback.

So why don't you use a blog like WordPress and just write plugin to get the functionality you want? WordPress supports pingbacks/trackbacks and most other generic things you might want. (On the other hand, I think it's great that you came up with your own blog software since that's definitely the way to learn the real ins and outs of building this kind of technology.) What I can imagine is that the post you see in chronological view to be your consolidated movie. But if you click on the post to see it in page (detailed) view, you see a textual (list) breakdown of post / comment title, author, clip duration and a link to each comment --- with an inline image (frame) from each video adjacent the textual description. The image would be hyperlinked to the video post/comment. I like the idea of viewing the post + comments in a cosolidated, streaming way -- but also like the idea of visualizing the structure of the conversation so that I can access particular points relatively easily.

> can you make a collective "thing" with pingbacks? Theoretically. ;-) One of the great things about pingbacks is that you can pingback any kind of file - not just a webpage. You can't do this with trackbacks. So, for example, if I write a post on my site and reference a post from your site, my post automatically pings your site to tell you that I've just "commented" on your post (the one I just referenced). Your site, depending on how you deal with pingbacks, can explicitly include a portion of my content as a comment or just a link to it. Of course, now that I say that, I realize pingbacks don't seem to be working right on my site... See http://ln.hixie.ch/?start=1033171507&count=1 for more information on pingbacks.

The problem isn't that I don't have pingbacks on my weblog. I can get that up and running in a day, two at the most. The problem is that places like Blogspot and Typepad don't have pingbacks. Moveable Type doesn't have pingbacks either (makes sense since they invented Trackbacks, but Trackbacks sucks ass compared to pingbacks and they should get with the times). I was doing a bit of testing on Wordpress' pingback support, and it's not as good as it needs to be for video comments to rock.

In "Earth," one vignette sticks in my mind: an old man makes friends with a group of young street toughs, talking to them about their lives and his own life. The boys find out later that all the time he was videotaping them through a camera mounted on his glasses. He edits the interviews into a video which becomes very popular and is widely circulated on the web, I don't remember whether this is monetized or not. best regards, Deirdr� Straughan http://www.straughan.com Yahoo!

Re: [videoblogging] automatic quicktime smil playlist

--0-370773580-1096115078=:5062 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii As much as I love WordPress, it is flaky in some area that are changing rapidly. Has anyone else used the GRiNS SMIL editor? They probably have the most complete implementation of the SMIL 2.0 spec. I bought a copy through work and it's quite impressive (and expensive). I've been rather too busy lately to devote much time using it. Of course, you can write SMIL by hand, but the editor does a great job letting you visualize and rehearse your animation as well as catch syntax errors and alert you to potential timing problems due to bandwidth and streaming media. It also allows you to publish to selected players (e.g., RealOne, IE6+TIME) and they claim initial support for "players that implement the SMIL Basic/3GPP profile for mobile applications", which of course, interests me greatly.
