Re: [videoblogging] online way to convert mov files to h.264 mp4

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit probably depends on original format. mov is a container, h.264 a format. so if for example you started with h.264 in .mov container then problem wouldn't exist. if it isn't already h.264 then google suggests: http://video.online-convert.com/convert-to-mp4 but the simplest option if this is for someone making (rather than service you want to provide to others) I would think is to shoot in h.264 (iphone, xacti, etc). might also help with transcoding compression issues too (artefacts, etc).

In addition the testing seems to rely on using presets, to me that's like telling specialists in any area that the best way to tell if something is best is to use it as an amateur would use it. Presets are generic to fit all possibilities, coudl compressing means changing things given the data you are working with.

My point I guess was not that one was better than the other, but in many many cases for those who don't tinker under the bonnet (aka 'hood') then QuickTime provides a pretty simple engine to a very high end codec. In particular if you are compressing via other apps, then access to the QuickTime engine is useful for ease of use and workflow. But in terms of perceived quality and similar data rates, apart from compression nerds, I doubt there would be much difference between perceivable quality between the two. > > > 4.

iMovie capture question

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit hi all quick question. Someone wants to record video directly from camera into iMovie. I know you can do this via built in camera, I'm pretty sure you can do this via FireWire (but there seem to be no low end camera's that come with firewire anymore), can you capture directly (live) via USB 2 into iMovie? Have had a look around but have failed to find a reliable answer... help and collective wisdom appreciated. an appropriate closing Adrian Miles about.me/vogmae [Non-text portions of this message have been removed] [View]

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit hi all and I'm joining the fray. We have *a lot* of videos from 30 years of video recording of circus performances. This is archival material that will be put online and then delivered through a specific social video site that we are making. We want to host the web version video at somewhere like blip, but they are not shows or episodes. We don't want to use YouTube (variety of reasons) and the ability to have a pro account on blip and 'hide' the material made blip a good choice. But as with David's question below, would this not be an appropriate use of blip in terms of blip's terms of service?
