MultiMedia Applications

Multimedia applications are those programs that integrate more than one media at a time; browsers are the most obvious. However, the term has come to include the use of programs that enable the use of any component that isn’t simple text and static graphics, such as audio, video, animation, virtual reality, conferencing and monitoring.

We have Excel & Desktop objects embedded into a Word doc
which by clicking on the objects' icons, will launch Excel/objects
but when the Word doc is printed/converted to PDF (using
Adobe PDF printer or CutePdf writer), these objects became
images in the converted PDF.

Is there a way to embed these Excel objects in the PDF such
that we can still open/launch the Excel from within the PDF?

Free tools will be appreiciated.

'Select All' & paste into MSWord, it's only partially printed/pasted.

Any tools/method to extract them out?

Need to combine OCR generate fields into meaningful values.

I have an OCR engine working well as it generates a space delimited text file. But the small fragment need to be combined into something meaningful as a form of post processing.

For example, the text on the page says:

VS DB DB Business Card - Retail

But in space delimited form, this is 7 fields.

I already have a finite list of about 25 possible strings, and can embed then in an array, such as

"VS DB CPS/Retail"
"VS DB DB Business Card - Retail"

so, I need to post-process the OCR generated file to be comma quote delimited, and use one of these pre-defined strings, when the OCR finds them.

What is a good paradigm for this?

Also, given this is OCR, there is a chance for a read error.

Thanks.

How many people could potentially access it?

Thanks

Using iOS - Ipod.

Found some interesting podcasts with big libraries - hundreds of episodes.

So far, only way to download them all would be to...click each one and select download.

Need top find an iOS podcast app that allows me to bulk download all podcasts.

I know Podbean allows this.  But, it is super buggy and crashes all the time.

Any others?

Thanks!

Got a lecture on MP3.  About an hour long.

Want to cut bits of it into a loop.

Looking for super simple drag & drop audio cutting and splicing.

Audacity seems too complicated.  Need something simpler.  Only requirement is to select blocks of audio and splice them together.  No need for processing or enhancing.

What looks like an easy piece of software to do this?

I have sever genre folders containing mp4 video stored on a Synology network drive feeding a couple of Media servers. Plex, for example.

I'd like to be able to determine  how many times each video is being watched over time. Is that possible, and how would I go about creating something like that?

We use iTextSharp to create PDFs throughout our site.  We have a Comments field that can grow.
It doesn't look like iTextSharp supports dynamic attributes - or at least the way we are using it with a pre-defined template.

sample of the code for the comments section:

  stamper.AcroFields.SetField("Comments", sb.ToString());
  stamper.AcroFields.SetFieldProperty("Comments", "textsize", 6f, null);

How strict is iTunes for podcast approvals?

I have done extensive research on the 9/11 attacks and have found new historical connections to 9/11 attacks in U.S. and world history that seem to have been scrubbed from the narrative. But I worry that iTunes will filter my podcast out, because it does sometimes touch on the political motivations of various entities.

How concerned should I be that iTunes will filter me out? Or, is the approval process towed out violence, porn, etc?

I hope iTunes does not act as the "thought police" and block my extensive historical narratives.

I hope to hear about other people's experiences with potential filtering of podcasts.

Is there any way/tools to convert/port softwares to portable versions:
I'm looking at converting freewares like ATube catcher (a video
downloader), WPS Pdf to Word converter, PDFsam.

Curious how virtualization tools that do P2V make the various
softwares work esp when migrating from say physical Win2003
to virtual Win2008R2 VMs : must be along similar lines

Getting a feeling for podcasting

I am about to launch my own podcast, but have little experience with podcasting.

Does a mobile user need a podcasting app? If so, what are the popular one for the iPhone?

I assume I could download it and see how various podcasts are displayed and accessed within the app. This would be very educational for me.

Need to choose WordPress plug-in for an audio and video podcast

But I am still not so knowledgeable about distribution of the podcast

Here is a list of Theme Forest themes I may choose from.

https://themeforest.net/tags/podcast

Suggestions?

If I use a podcast theme on my WordPress site, what is missing from my hosting requirements? Are the videos stored on YouTube? And the MP3's stored on my website?

Does the theme contain the interface to iTunes and other podcast distribution outlets?

I am pretty new at this and do not yet have a feeling for what is what.

Thanks.

SCREENSHOT Before and AfterI JUST upgraded VLC to version 3.0.4.  in the previous version, when streaming from a radio station, the title and artist would show in the title bar and in a Windows notification in the lower-right of the screen.  Now only the title of the mp3 (the part of the URL following the "/.com/" shows in the title bar.  Perhaps a setting was changed during the update, but it's not something I remember setting when I did the original setup.

On another computer, with Version 2.2.1, the titlebar shows the title and artist as shown in the screensnip, so I uninstalled Version 3.0.4 on the subject computer and installed 2.2.1, and it still only shows the URL, so I don't think it's a VERSION issue.  

When I click view, status bar, the status bar doesn't show the title and artist either - it DOES on the computer I'm comparing.

Need PodCast tools

I want to start a podcast which will include audio and video, but I want to do as little web development s possible. I want to build my podcast on a proven platform, so all I need to do is create great content.

Suggestions?

I'd like it to be free, if possible. But, I'd consider a small monthly fee, if the features are helpful.

Also, I have seen a way to have your own web radio station. Does anyone know about that?

Please let me know.

Thanks.

What is a "Facebook Pixel" and how does it work?

I am pretty sure a developer created and configured my Facebook page with a "Facebook Pixel" but I am on my own now, and need to understand it better.

How do I find it if it does exist? What does it do exactly?

Is there an email address associated with it? If so, can I find what that email address is?

Secondly, I am trying to connect it to an EverWebinar, so when the Facebook user clicks the "Sign Up" button on my Facebook ad, the sign-up page pops up. Does this mean EverWebinar also needs to get that pixel?

What does a Facebook Pixel file look like?

Thanks

Can YouTube force a user registration before a viewing?

I have a 15 minute training session video that I will offer for free, and will use Facebook to advertise it. But I only hope to show it to people who have registered.

I created this video to help build my opt-in list, so after they register (name and email) I send the URL for the video.

I expect to need to hide the video as Unlisted, but wonder if YouTube can only show a video to users who reveal themselves tome in the form of a name and email address?

Thanks

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/singhealth-cyberattack-a-harsh-reminder-to-redouble-10779812

I'm trying to capture the above minister's speech video with ATube_Catcher :
1. refer to attachment 1 : if I use this option, the captured wmv file could be
    played back with it video fine but it's audio is simply a high-pitched & 
    sometimes noisy audio that we cant make anything out of it.  Above
    URL plays fine (both audio & video) when played from browsers

2. if I use the Stream Catcher option, it requires WinPCap which when
     installed caused the above video as well as all Youtube videos can't
     be played at all on all browsers : had to deinstall WinPCap to recover

3. If I use VLC, see attachment 3,  it requires actual  avi/mp4  or video
     file which above URL is not as only a portion of above URL is video

What else can I do: appreciate any freewares.  I'm not good with using
plug-ins, so a layman step by step instructions is needed.

I could use my phone / videocam  to record but this is not what I am
looking for

Helping a friend that wants a simple way to play streaming music in his shop.

I thought of Alexa / echo dot.

Also thought of a cable TV box connected only to audio to play the music channel through the audio out.  But a cable box rental / TV service would be expensive / month.

Are there 'appliances' for specific streaming services for audio?  

Otherwise I envision having to have a PC / iphone / ipod type thing running the app of a streaming service?

And then - this is music to play in a hair salon.  What's the legality of playing the services in a commercial environment?  Is there a business subscription  that covers playing it in a commercial business?

Finally - feeding the audio out of an echo dot / PC / ipod into 3 speakers for a 1,200 sq ft room.  We're thinking 3 ceiling speakers. But need an amp to do that? Any recommendations?

Playing video as a presenter, to a remote PC

I need to edit a video (using Premiere Pro) with a friend, who can only collaborate with me via a remote PC. I have the Join.Me service, but verified that Join.Me does not share video which are played on the PC for the meeting host.

I know that the image for the video is visible remotely, since that is part of the desktop. But the audio fails, so I can not edit my video with the help of my friend, because I can not share audio.

Does anyone have any suggestion? We both have a Mac.

It would help a lot of I could do this.


Thanks
