--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. There's also GRiNS, http://www.oratrix.com which is more appropriate. They But expensive. And there's also SMOX Pad and Fluition. Also, costing money. Anyone try these?

It is more than that. The system includes a tool that supposedly allows simple authoring, and a server-side part for uploading and commenting. Looks like they maybe have something for associating comments or annotations with particular objects in the frame over time as well. In other words, a video blog... But their site is really thin on real info, so who knows what it really does other than attract research grants. Ryan Yahoo! Groups SponsorADVERTISEMENT --------------------------------- Yahoo!
