new people welcome: MAKE A VIDEO

So Day 3 of videoblog week is over. i just posted: http://www.me-tv.org/wakka.php?wakka=VideoBloggingWeek&v=65c All kinds of different ways you can post video. personal, traditionally edited, experimental. you can do a lot of work, or a little. By the way, we got 30 members of this videoblog discussion group now. about 20 new people have joined since we started a week ago. we represent Rotterdam, Denmark, UK, Norway, philippines, Minneapolis, Bethesda, Boston, CA, NYC. I really encourage anyone new to jump in, introduce yourself: what's your experience with videoblogging? Post a video. we're not even 1/2 way through videoblog week. Like I tell Peter, I want to see what's up in other countries. You dont SEE this on the internet. I also encourage anyone new to check out our wiki: http://www.me-tv.org Add your knowledge to it. I think Aisling may be in here as well. She's the one who made the pseudo-videoblogging tool a couple years ago. what's the word? -- Jay Dedman Manhattan Neighborhood Network 537 West 59th (between 10th and 11th Ave) NY NY 10019 http://www.mnn.org 212 757 2670 [View]

It's quite an effort to put together a video every day.

It's quite an effort to put together a video every day. For this one I filmed what was going on at work, since I've been there all day, every day of the week so far. To produce this video I filmed it, captured it to my Mac, brought it into Final Cut Pro, added some music and then exported it. Next up I loaded it into Sorenson Squeeze and compressesd it for web delivery. After that I created an HTML page to host the video, FTP'd the video and the HTML file to my hosting site, and then created a new entry in my video blog, using TypePad, to link to the HTML page. I'm going to look into a new process that includes making a poster movie in QuickTime and only loading the video when the used clicks the poster movie. That'll reduce my steps by taking out the HTML page creation step. --Steve http://stevegarfield.com [View]



videoblog week makes me work

Go here to see my Day Three Video. http://momentshowing.typepad.com/momentshowing/ Ive just bookmarked the wiki page to check everyone's video. http://www.me-tv.org/wakka.php?wakka=VideoBloggingWeek&v=65c It is a challenge to post a video a day. Like Steve mentions, it's making me figure out ways to make the process easier. im still spending 30 minutes doing all the uploading, optimizing, and posting. too long I think. Makes me be creative about the content as well. that's why I like Peter's mantra: why edit? You may think your video is dull, but to us it's fresh. Like text blogging, maybe videos just be part of your daily experience? check out this guy: http://www.dailyexperience.com/ he posts all the time about him and his new family. I invited him in but I dont know if he joined. What am I going to do today? -- Jay Dedman Manhattan Neighborhood Network 537 West 59th NY NY 10019 212 757 2670 ext.312 http://www.mnn.org [View]

> that's why I like Peter's mantra: why edit? Don't misunderstand me: I say: "Why edit in an editing tool?". I "edit" all the time, I make about 20 little 5 second movies a day (the tiny camera makes it real easy) and then choose. The editing is in the selection, it's when I decide which movie to pick. Yesterday I made a few other movies than the one I posted, but I liked the one I posted best. I'm a photographer by training, and any professional photographer can tell you: the secret is partly in the selection process. Don't edit, select! [View]

Come on people! Who else wants to post a little video today and join videoblogging week? Go on. It's easier than it looks, and don't worry about the movies being bad, that's ok. The point is to just get posting. Just do it. Make a video while you're reading this message of yourself, and post that! We're videoblogging geeks, we like *everything*. Peter [View]

i can be the example of an adverage person > honestly it is too difficult for me > im lost > i dont even feel justifid in being more than an observer here Can an average person videoblog? I know mica very well and she is a smart person. But to videoblog, you need to know how to edit(and have editing software). You have to know how to optimize video(and have compression software). You have to know how to upload to your blog(and have a blog). and a camera. It's not all in one. you got to know how to move around. I'd really like to find a way where you can do it "clicl-click-click". So mica you got everything you need but a Blog and an undersatnding of the process. we can work together to make it happen.

I edited this one a little bit more, apart from that, same approach as yesterday. http://poorbuthappy.com/ease/archives/003046.html I also did a "click to play" screen, but it still opens in a new window. Can you make it open in the same player as the "click to play" screen? Peter [View]

I liked that one. You did a click to play, by setting autoplay to 'false', but every-time you load the page, you load the video.

Hello >Come on people! Who else wants to post a little video today and join >videoblogging week? Go on. It's easier than it looks, and don't worry OK, my first post. Act more, think less. Thanks for kickstarting me ;) But first an introduction. I'm a 24yo master student at The University of Bergen, Norway. My goal is to be able to post videos in a blog by uploading in a web form, (and some other stuff less relevant here). My idea/vision is to make the number of steps go down, not just from 9 to 8. I want people to be able to 1. Film with whatever device 2. Transfer the video from the device to the computer 3. Use a web form: Browse to choose video file to upload, type in text, push "Upload" button. Done. I understand some of you want to make a stand-alone application for this. For the experienced user, that is probably better. But for the novice, a web approach is IMO (at first) easyer and quicker, but involves some obvious limitations. * The server must be able to accept a lot of different codecs, formats and so on * The server must be fast and be able to encode in a chosen common format - preferrably all video files should be converted using the same parameters (resolution, fps, codec, etc.) * The user have to upload quite big files, depending on which codec...

Asmund encoded his video with the DivX codec so you'll need something that can play DivX files. Videolan does a nice job on my computer (though it has a clunky interface). It's open source and available for both PC and Mac OS X (and about a million Linux distributions). Download it at: <http://www.videolan.org/vlc/&gt; - Andreas -- http://www.solitude.dk/ [View]

Got it! It makes uploading a movie a lot easier. No more HTML! I love that.
