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.

I am considering making training videos which at some point may have a price attached to them. So, I am not keen on hosting these on YouTube.

What options to do have for private hosting?

Is it logical to consider using my WordPress site, where I already have WuCommerce up and running?

What is involved in video posting? Are there various WordPress plugins I cans use that would make this easy?

This is hosted on AWS. How do you calculate the cost of this kind of service for bandwidth?

What if I have 10 views per day and the video is 30 minutes long?

What might that cost for the month?

I need to make a movie of my desktop with my own audio narration.

I have used Audacity and love it.

Is there a simply to learn tool that would let me record my desktop and either edit the audio with this tool or just let me edit the audio in Audacity?

There will be periods on no activity on my desktop, so I can adjust the age views to fit the edited audio.

Is Adobe Premier overkill? The cost is very high.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for my question, but I'll start here...

I am looking for a software application that will allow me to view the video being shot through my DSLR camera. I have been using an application called - digiCamContol. Although it is free and I don't want to complain about software that is free, I would like to see if there are other applications that work in a slightly different manner.  

I produce video training tutorials for the vertical market and would like to control my cameras (I use two cameras) via my laptop and not on the cameras themselves.

If anyone can offer any advice where I can find a good DSLR Camera control software, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
Hi, can anyone please suggest a tool for capturing web-based video (including audio)?
Many thanks in advance .
Is there any good software (free or with minimal one time fee) can you introduce in composing some commercial standard music?

Also just curious what software are used by those recording companies?

Thank you.
I installed Audio Hijack and and SoundFlower.

I see SoundFlower in both MicroPhone and Speakers for Skype...

Which do I use?

How do I configure:

Audio Hijack


I use Audacity and have been recording my audio at 44.1 kHz. As far as bit depth, I have no idea, but have used the defaults.

I need to find the ideal for the best quality sound on my videos and podcasts, and find if my gear is up to it.

I have a MacBook:
2.4 GHz Intel Core 7
8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1024 MB

And my microphone is:
Blue Yeti
Ultimate USB

purchased a few years ago.

Can you tell me the best sampling rates, bit depth, etc. for my recordings and also the maximum values my current gear can support?

Is this microphone sub-standard to give a professional sound?

Suggestions on improvements?

I am pretty good at recording my own voice and editing it to make it sound (almost) professional. So, I have not had to deal adjusting the volume of the whole track or a part of the track.

Now,I need to import MP3's and WAV files and integrate them into my audio script.

Aligning the start times is easy, but it would be nice to import the whole track and have the ability to MUTE the parts of the track I do not audible. This would enable me to have the entire track in the one Audacity file.

But more important, how do I adjust the volume of an entire track as well as boost and reduce the volume of certain parts of the track?

People post You Tube videos on some music forums. I posted a few and when I go back to watch them they are too dark. The cameras show the crowds but you can not see them. They are missing the original brightness level. Issues?

In absolutely terrifying technology progress... back in November, Adobe announced a new vocal editing initiative; project "VoCo":

I must say, the product is utterly amazing and at the same time, terrifying. Combine that technology with this facial manipulation tech that was recently demo'd out of Stanford and you have one of the most dangerous social engineering tools we've ever witnessed.

If we thought fake news was bad with current digital/print media, can you imagine what it will be like once this type of tool is used for nefarious purposes? We'll be at a point where it's nearly impossible to believe what you see or hear.

I'm trying to set up a Win10 PC to automatically play YouTube playlists - controlled by Windows Scheduler - un-attended. I've made a playlist in YouTube. This plays ok in a web browser.
I start VLC (at a specified time) from Windows Scheduler with the following command

"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" ... pDcmwTO1el

VLC starts playing the first item in the YT playlist and then stops when it is finished. It never starts playing the next item in the list.
Haven't been able to figure out how to make VLC play the complete list. Any suggestions?

P.S.: Prefer setting up and maintain the playlist in YouTube interface because it is easier and more intuitive than creating a playlist in VLC.

This article will show how Aten was able to supply easy management and control for Artear's video walls and wide range display configurations of their newsroom.
This question was asked in June and from that question I do not see the solution.

I have a 52 MB video file. I watched a video on how to compress the file. Three simple steps:
On the advanced tab change the 1 to a 4.
On the audio tab change the 160 to 128.
Check the box beside web optimized.
Click start.

There is no advanced tab on version 1.0.7 (2017040900) 64 bit

I checked web optimized and changed the 160 to 128 and the size essentially stays 52MB. No compression at all.

From the other thread > tools > advanced > check the box to show advanced encoder options tab.
I'm not finding that in Tools.

Is it possible to create colour libraries patterns in Adobe Creative Cloud, and then they appear in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Sketch, and Adobe Comp?

What I've been working on a web portal that allows me to add and watch IPTV streams on JW Player. I have a database that has a name, url and country fields. The page would have a list of channels on the left and once clicked, the rstp stream would open on the right by grabbing the url from the url row on the database. However, I'm unable to get JW Player to load and it gives me a 404 error. Can you please help.
