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.

Hi,

I'd need a really easy, simple & free tool to record (simple edit) an instruction video.
I'm not a video expert, so would need to be plain & easy.

Thank.

I have the above HDMI HD video recorder which just broke (the power is intermittent):
a typical 1 hr 50 mins movie from my Set-Top box will record into about 7.5-8GB of
mp4 videos.

As the above broke & the cost has increased, I got the cheaper recorder below instead:
For exactly the same movie of same duration, the recorded videos take 15-16GB of
mp4:

Thought both of them are HD (1080p), so what's the difference?  In terms of
fps (frames per sec) or just simply the latter's video compression is poor?

Is there any way or free tool to compress the mp4 without loss of the video
quality including the fps??  

I've come across a tool (can't recall) that could convert/compress jpg images
but not for mp4 or webm or mkv videos

Say, I'm used to using the Audicity program in Windows https://www.audacityteam.org/ . I use very few of the features, just basic audio editing. Kindly recommend an app for Android that is similar in nature and perhaps, compatible. Thanks, Shaun

H guys!

I have downloaded VLC in my iPhone X and I want to use my iPhone music on it but the music folder is not present.  Yet there is an option to connect to the iPhone but it seems the the address May be wrong.

VLC option
The VLC is from Apple store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/vlc-for-mobile/id650377962

How can play my iPhone song in VLC apps without the need to conecta to iTunes? (The songs are in my iPhone not my iTunes)

I have a TV that accepts a co-axial cable from the wall where the TV provider's cable enters. Someone wants the TV and they have some sort of video game device that is about the size of your hand and has a red-yellow or red-white cable that requires a TV that accepts the standard red-white-yellow AV cable. I think I have an RF device that will allow this hand held video game to be used with the TV. I've done some looking around to see what the video game unit looks like. Not much luck. Maybe someone here can find such a video game device that plugs into a TV and the buttons, etc. to play the video game are built into the hand held device. Thanks.

I've recorded a conversation using my cell phone and the built-in mic on my Acer Windows 10 laptop. My guest sounds, as you would expect, like he's on a telephone. But the "phone" quality is in many cases raspy. I can usually tweak and edit silence and such pretty good, but I need help here.

I've tried several different settings but just can't get my guest's audio to sound less sharp, less "telephone-y" and simply more clear.

Any audio production experts out there who can give me what I hope will be a little simple guidance to clean this audio up?

As you may know,  Adobe will be ending support for its Flash player about a year from now.

With the major browsers already blocking Flash-powered players, I am looking for a very simple replacement. I want to put 4 or 5 of those players on one page, make it small and simple, to provide an audio "promo" for each one that I will change weekly.

I have been using Dewplayer, which did the job extremely well, but since it was Flash based, it's trashed now.

I've done some searching the past couple of days and I don't see much of anything that jumps out at me.

Can anyone recommend something that will get this job done?

Mac (Mojave) Browser Speaker Failure

My speaker works fine, but sometimes, when I play a video in the browser, there is no sound.

I see the volume is set to max. This is true for Chrome, Safari, and probably other browsers.

I saw the other day, I had that problem but right clicked and saw a menu. I chose "unmute" to make the sound play.

It's as if there is a mute which is not supported by certain web pages.

Suggestions?

Thanks

We are following instructions to burn to disc one (1) mp4 video. The first program did create the audio_ts and video_ts folders
In the image you see a mention of a file system. It also mentions using your own favorite burning software. Efforts to burn these two files (audio_ts and video_ts has failed.
What is this file system?
What other programs can you suggest. It's one video to play before a group of people so we need the video to play on a table top player and I try not to pay for a program since it's only one video needed. Thanks.

The burner recommended along side the above program that created the file structure, was to locate the folders and move them to another folder. Here they are and the chosen burner is getting errors when trying to just add the folders to the burning program.

I have heard AWS has an excellent Speech Recognition web API, and wonder if anyone knows of a complete speech recognition app which uses this AWS API?

Apparently, the demo emails you the translation and I hear the translation is great.

Anybody got any leans on an app that can handle speech to text?

Thanks.

Sony Walkman Remote Control Commander RM-MZ2S for MiniDisc Player.

The yellow arrow points to a part that appears to be intended to be removed. I am unable to get it off. I guess this is where a AAA battery might be located.
The small arrow points to a rubber button of some sort for some unknown purpose.
Would this device require a battery?

Hi!

Some time back I had experts help me with a bunch old DVD I wanted to put in the cloud.  Today I have a series of DVD that the computer just doesn't recognize as to "No DVD  in D: drive".  I have checked the DVD and seem somewhat dirty or grimy or scratch? (that is my appreciation) - when I place them in my hands they do seema bit scratched and some grime "maybe" in some places; I say grime because if I press it it smudges  somewhat (if u take a cloesup on certain areas u can see them).  So i would like to know if you guys can take a look at the image and recommend if there is a way to fix them or clean them or what can I do to be able to have my computer read them.

Our company is standing up a small media group who'll be generating weekly videos. We want to do this right, and have a video management system in place from the very beginning. We want something that can work with both local and cloud storage, stores metadata for the videos, and can ideally show clips from the videos in search results. Can anyone recommend something like this?

We have an AB switch so we can use 1 monitor, 1 keyboard, 1 set of speakers, 1 mouse for two systems each having their own power cord  (W10, Vista). Everything works fine except occasional speaker issues.
The power cord for the speakers plugs into the back of the Vista system. Then the green and pink tied together as a black wires goes to the switch. From there a green goes to the main speaker. I'm not using the pink. From the main speaker a green goes to the second speaker.
I was using to Vista system and listening to a Youtube video and got high volume. Sound was coming from both speakers. I turned that system off and switched from the Vista to W10 system by clicking the AB switch to W10. I opened the same Youtube video and the volume was lower. I put the main speaker and the second speaker to my ear and heard no sound.
I unplugged the secondary speaker and still heard sound. I unplugged the main speaker from the switch and still heard sound. I unplugged the green wire from the back of the Vista system that sends sound to the switch and still heard no sound so the sound heard is coming from inside the Vista system.
Why is no sound getting to the main speaker through the switch?
Thanks.

I just found this out:

A number of gaming, education, and video sites still use Flash, and Adobe says it remains committed to supporting the technology until 2020 alongside partners like Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla. Microsoft says it plans to disable Flash by default in Edge and Internet Explorer in mid to late 2019, with a full removal from all supported versions of Windows by 2020. Google will continue phasing out Flash over the next few years, while Mozilla says Firefox users will be able to choose which websites are able to run Flash next month and allow Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) users to keep using Flash until the end of 2020.

My site, www.radiogeorge.com, has used a modified Flash player for years. While the big change is a year away, I'd like to start the obviously necessary overhaul now. It looks like I'll need a new player that can play the mp3 files I use, and I would like it to work across multiple browsers as well as on cell phones if possible. (Note: for cell phone usage, I do not use an app; I encourage interested parties to simply go to the website, the design of which makes it easy to select and listen to your preferred "channel.") Also note that this option is not available at present on most phones.

Lots of work to be done. Experts, what are your suggestions?

Hardware:  Lenovo T510 laptop with External 2TB USB WD My Passport drive.    Operating System is WIndows 10 1903 version.
Over 1.2TB of songs on the external USB Drive.  (Note: there are only USB 2.0 ports on this laptop).  
Problem:  Using WIndows Media Player - but the database keeps getting corrupted.
What I have tried:   1) Disabled Windows Media player, rebooted, then re-enabled Windows Media Player.   No difference.
2) From an elevated command prompt, registered jbscript.dll and vbscript.dll.   No effect.
3) Saved off all the files in C:\users\(current user)\appdata\local\microsoft\Media Player      and then deleted them.    Windows Media Player rebuilt the CurrentDatabase_400.wmdb (which took about 4 hours).   Then everything seemed to work fine.   However, when I closed Windows Media Player and then re-opened a couple of times, I got a message that the database was corrupted.   It renamed the database to "CorruptDatabase_400.wmdb" and is now re-creating the CurrentDatabase_400.wmdb.

Any Suggestions...   I worry that the size of the music library on the external USB 2.0 drive is causing the corruption - but, not sure how to tell for sure...

The music apps or audio apps of iPhone X is somewhat limited.  I need to advance within the audio or the song X amount of seconds; iPhone X music or audio apps doesn’t do this - when pressing advance, it jumps to the start or the next audio.   Please advice on a iPhone X music or aduos apps that I can use to listen and jump where I want.

Thank u guys!
