>3GPP format! Are any of us thinking about producing content in that >format? I know Quicktime Pro can export in 3GP, not sure about >iMovie... I've been producing and posting content in this format for some time now: http://msgilligan.blogspot.com/2004/10/don-cochrane-tells-me-about-digital.html http://msgilligan.blogspot.com/2004/10/dan-gillmors-talk-at-san-jose-state.html This one is two 10-second clips (which is all my phone can do) pasted together in QT Pro: http://msgilligan.blogspot.com/2004/09/john-malkin-on-fcc-raid.html This is my oldest one that is currently on-line: http://msgilligan.blogspot.com/2004/06/katie-in-car.html It was taken and posted from a moving vehicle! (I added more text later...) vBlog Central allows posting of 3GPP content via e-mail, so it works with any cellphone that has e-mail capability. > >I guess the only advantage of using it would be if you expected people >to play it on their iPod screen (which doesn't *yet* support it) or on >their cellphone (has anyone actually watched video on their cell phone >yet in this group?). I've also watched Movie Trailers in Real format on my phone, but I've actually used the phone more for taking short clips than watching them. (Jay, I haven't figured out how to hide my phone in a tomato yet!) >Which means, currently you would have to download >the file to your computer and transfer to your mobile device -- >probably using Bluetooth or a wired connection. I have a Nokia 3650 (about 1 year old) and it can download 3GPP movies over HTTP and "stream" real format.

Absolutely. (Stay tuned to vBlog Central...) -- Sean -- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.
