Rocketboom was probably the first videoblog out there that I listed on my "must see" list, but since then, the list has grown, and I've found other equally great vloggers out there, and I'm starting to shoot my own video. Mission accomplished. (Well, if you can forget my blogging and podcasting...) Pete [View]

Yes. Yes I can... ;) I say this because I was blogging in 1997 where you could read all the blogs during your lunch hour. (Of course we didn't call them weblogs or blogs at that point.) I also say this because I was involved in podcasting when there were probably less than a dozen known podcasts. (And it wasn't called podcasting at that point either.) Both of those things blew up, and blew up big. The number of podcasts when from a dozen to 4000+ in like 8 months. Get ready, there's gonna be an avanlance coming. [View]

I think they've discussed this issue on the del.icio.us mailing list, and there is a way to block posts from specific users. And now that del.icio.us is a real thing with funding and what not, I'm sure it's in their best interest to keep it spam-free. Pete [View]

Cheap, "one-time-use" video camera uses? Think kids! Would you trust a 5 year old with your $300+ DV cam? Would you trust them with a $30 DV cam? Send some to the troops, or people you know in far away places, ask them to video their surroundings and everyday life and send it back to you. You could even record a 'video postcard' to them, send it for them to watch before deleting and recording on it again. Hazardous conditions... Going whitewater-rafting or rock-climbing and don't want to bring the $300+ DV cam and waterproof gear? How about a $30 DV cam? Weddings/Parties... Buy a few and hand them out, just like the old 'disposable camera at the wedding reception table' idea. Think of the fun you could have editing it! Weird Stuff... I'm sure I know some guys who would love to mount on in their RC planes or attach them to kits and see what they... [View]

The WordPress devs seem to think that since the RSS 2.0 spec does not *specifically* limit enclosures to just one, that multiple enclosures is ok. As to how applications handle this, well, that's another story... I've heard many podcasters complain about WordPress and it's handling of enclosures, and I don't know how comfortable you are with WordPress or PHP, but what I would do is try to use custom fields, and use separate RSS feeds, which look at the custom fields. (Not that this will be easy.) Have you tried asking some... [View]

A while back when testing video on the web I had thought .mp4 or .mpg would be what I was after as far as having it "work everywhere" but the videoblogging stuff all seems to be in QuickTime (.mov files) which is fine with me, I'm a Mac-weenie anyway. ;) My question is, why? I'm looking for an answer to "Why use .mov files instead of format X?" that I can tell people. Is it just that .wmv works like crap on the Mac and QuickTime works well on Windows? Is there an FAQ somewhere? What's the answer? Pete [View]

Today I enclosed a .mov file in an RSS 2.0 feed and checked it using iPodder 2.0, it loaded the video into iTunes 4.8 and presented it in the small area where 'album art' is typically displayed. There is also a button to display the video full screen. This was on Mac OS X 10.3. So really it all seems to work right now. Should I upload a screen shot? Pete [View]
