Re: imovie and blogs

Hi all, just a quick note about iMovie. With a .mac account, it takes as little as 7 clicks to publish a videoblog, and that's just recording only, no editing-- just talking-head stuff. I wanted to throw in there that even though there are plenty of debates about 'what' a videoblog should be, I'm glad to see people are going ahead and just tackling it anyway. Of and of course it's close to my heart, being in the audioblog space and all. Cheers!

Well, like i noted before, it's talking head stuff, but here is how it went for me tonight: 1. click imovie on the dock 2. clicked the camera icon (it was on edit) 3. click record (and action!) 4. click stop 5. File > Share 6. Click Homepage icon 7. when taken to .Mac, click template 8. Click publish Your mileage may vary, obviously, given things like being logged in to .mac or not, if you previously had a project open in iMovie or not, but those are the basic steps. The thing with video which makes me nervous putting the *blog at the end of it, is that it is much more dynamic than audio or text. Non-linear and such. So obviously, there are plenty of clicks involved. In my example, the quality was less than perfect and the video was small, and that opens a whole new can of worms (probably the biggest) as far as video *anything* is concerned. The other unfair advantage here, is how iMovie and the other iLife apps integrate and connect to a central place. Life isn't this easy for most of the world, unfortunately. I, too, would love to see it publish to someplace other than the .Mac account. E --- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, Jay Dedman <jay@m...> wrote: > > > Hi all, just a quick note about iMovie.

I keep two cameras with me: one is a sony DV Cam for freewheeling capture-at-will, and the other is an iSight, which as of Day 2, i haven't used yet. Maybe on the plane later in the week. I really planned on making this minimal-editing. Oh well. I'm an artist I guess. But I used iMovie, which is the most phenomenal piece of easy-click-done software around. I really wouldn't want to whip out final cut pro. And I upload to my own servers and link to it from my Blogmedia.com account. Yes, weird, I know. Uber-blogger that chooses a hosted solution. Dunno, I just think Blogware rocks. If I had to host it, I suppose I'd knock it down a few sizes.

--- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, "Yaron Samid" <yaron@n...> wrote: > Is there a definition of 'what a videoblog is' that we all or mostly > agree on? To me, the word 'blog' generally refers to chronological postings, oftentimes shorter than a journal entry or essay. We tossed this idea around over at audioblog.com, and some audioblogs have a short lifespan like some weblog entries. (Import a few hundred weblog entries and see how many are still relevant vs. timeless). Video has a high overhead to it. Just the nature of capturing it and storing it puts the biggest hurdle out there. Audio does to a certain degree, but a clean cut short form, and VERY linear approach is what would put the 'blog' in 'videoblog'... I'm someone who produces longer form video and audio and I don't even think my entries in the Videoblog Week project would match what a videoblog would be (in my mind). Then the questions are, (and rhetorical at that) what type of linear video would be blogged, and would that linear video be of interest to our 'audiences'. Or should we just capture and post and see what happens? [View]



Re: creating a standard

June 29, 2004 | Post #219 | Topic #140

Ah yes, the big standards question. I'm always torn about what to support. I split my judgement based on what I like, and then on what the rest of the world uses. When I look at movie trailers, I see Quicktime. And the fastest thing for me to output video is iMovie, and bam! Quicktime. Outside of the videoblog sphere, my studio is going to start releasing shows over the web and we are going to support Windows Media and MPEG4. A bit redundant, maybe, but that's how we are responding initially to a new market, the personal media player and windows installations. MPEG will work on quicktime, Real, and whatever else comes along. For streaming, it's a different story. Part of me sees videoblogging as a streaming, short term content model, not unlike audioblogging or regular weblogging. With streaming, the options are endless. I know people use Quicktime across many platforms and since I have a spare OS X server laying around, I'll probably just deal with quicktime if I need to stream content (portable or disposable or otherwise). That may change though in the near future, I don't know yet. My 2 cents.

I haven't with NewsGator, but I actively deal with Media Center PCs as it's one of the content delivery areas I have a great interest in (among other things). The Online Spotlight is one of the menu options in an MCE, that allows a viewer to access premium content online. Microsoft has a developer kit for MCE, as well as further information on Online Spotlight. It's good stuff. It may very well be a step in the direction of indie peer-driven media to the masses.
