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 about to record my voice for a web video, but need to make my voice deeper. I am told by an expert I need to ad Reverb.

Please tell me how to control this with either Premiere Pro or Audacity.

Thanks.

I created a playlist of my videos in the order I'd like them displayed. But I do not see any difference.

Can I make the playlist into the default playlist?

I have a client who has a lot of old wmp files (windows media photo), which I need to convert to any modern file type.  I cannot find anything which will open them, let alone convert them.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

I've tried all the Adobe Apps and even gone back to an XP machine with Windows Photo Viewer and Windows media Player, but no go :(

Thanks

Does ZOHO Webinar allow a live video stream as an input? I see they have a brand called Darkroom which works on Windows, not Mac. I just need to live stream video.

My problem with WebinarJam is that it controls the webcam, and provides me now way to insert a ChromaKey to replace a green screen background. YouTube, on the other hand, works perfectly in this regard.

Zoho is low cost and seems full featured. But I need to find if it gets its video stream from a configurable source, like OBS or vMix Pro, or is stuck with the model used by WebinarJam.

Thanks.

I have a laptop and I want to record audio. I have 2 microphones (a budget one and a "real" one) But: recording audio with one of the two mics doesn't work: the internal mic of my laptop is used in stead. How can I fix this? Do I need to contact Lenovo?

Need a YouTube based webinar, with chat service

I need to create the MP4 of a live webinar, where I use OBS to live stream myself to YouTube, with my green screen replaced with a professional looking image. But I need one to many chat services.

So, how much I do this?

I wish I could use a comprehensive webinar solution, but they either do not support the green screen technology (WebinarJam) OR they are too expensive (GoToWebinar).

So, my solution is to use:

1) OBS for green screen removal
2) Live OBS stream to YouTube
3) YouTube handles audio

But I need a chat service my attendees can use to submit comments and questions.  

Suggestions?

Thanks

Need a "poor man's" green screen

At the moment, I am stuck. I am all configured for a live webinar using WebinarJam. Now, I find they do not support green screen replacement.

I am looking fo a technical solution, like using GoToWebinar. But, in the short run, is there another possible solution, like finding a professional looking cloth drape to use instead of a green screen?

Thanks.

Need to "re-broadcast" the repaired video stream

I am in a major pickle. I finally got a live stream video solution to work (using OBS)  that removes the green screen. But I use WebinarJam for my webinars, and they do not support green screen. They only take the video direct from my Logitech C922.

What can I do?

I feel like I need a setting on OBS to "re-broadcast" the modified video stream. This means that WebinarJam would display the stream, as is, which is the way I want it to look.

Am I making any sense?

What is the purpose of using OBS to modify the live video stream if it can not be used?

WebinarJam also allows YouTube live and Facebook live, which may mean I can use OBS as an input into either of those.

Please let me know your thoughts on the options available to me.

Thanks.

Need Green Screen replacement from YouTube or Facebook

I use a service called WebinarJam, but they do not support Green Screen replacement. BUT, they provide three possible input source for the video...

Video Stream Options
As you can see, YourTube live and Facebook live are options.

Does this mean I can use either of these to insert my background image, then use the fixed stream with WebinarJam?

Their support says "WebinarJam does not support Green Screen replacement." But if I give then the video stream from YT or FB, they have no choice.

Am I right or wrong?

Thanks

I have used this webcam before and it worked fine. The program, application, or website, turned the camera on. It's a Windows 7 desktop. When inserted in the front USB port it recognizes the device.

How to turn the camera on manually.
Maybe I wish to take a photo of something and save the image as a file.
The latest failure was trying to get photo of myself for travel via Airbnb. Their program gave a window to allow the camera but it never came on. Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000.

I develop a window's desktop application in C++.    I'd like to add an embedded video help system.  At various places in the GUI and help button -- the user clicks the help button, and a video plays showing them some 'how to' information.

What are suggestions for how to play a video?   I'm not sure I want to rely on Windows Media player (or any other particular thing) being installed or not.  And I don't want it to take several seconds for some player to boot up and start showing the video.  I really want it to be very fast -- click on help button and video is playing 2 seconds later.  Only need the most basic video controls: play, pause, rewind, volume for audio.

Is there a video player I could bundle with my product?  Suggestions?  Thanks!

1. The volume when listening to music seems low volume compared to my desktop and VLC.
The on keyboard volume adjustment says max. Any internal settings? or can external speakers be used?
2. I get a message asking me to turn on windows. I used it for over an hour and saw nothing that indicated that windows was not on = ?
3. Is it best to always use the power cord when it is available and only use the battery when there is no place to use a power cord?

Which ScreenFlow product does green screen removal for Live Streaming on an old Mac?

There are so many choices. I am not sure which is the best (and cheapest) for me.

I need to remove the green screen from the video feed, and replace it with a static image, since I am using WebinarJam for a live web seminar.

Which ScreenFlow product handles this green screen removal on a Mac? I have an old Mac, and hope it would work on a 2013 Mac with the following hardware:

Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics: Intel HG Graphics 4000 1536 MB

If I must, I would consider a machine upgrade to use ScreenFlow, but hope I can get it running with my current gear.

Thanks.

Need to replace green screen background using a web cam for live streaming

I use WebinarJam and need a web cam, and have been directed to get a Logitech 922 or 930 (by EE and WebinarJam).

A primary use of this camera will be of me in front of a green screen, for live streaming. But I am not yet sure if WebinarJam handles the green screen replacement or if that is the job of the camera itself.

Here is a camera which does the green screen replacement...

https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-C922x-Pro-Stream-Webcam/dp/B01LXCDPPK/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1535043289&sr=1-2&keywords=Logitech+922

I have a Mac, BUT, I could load Windows for this Personify green screen replacement technology to be compatible with my system.

My only experience with green screen replacement is with a video, using Premiere Pro. I have not does this live but have heard there are problems involving automatic green screen replacement, when the subject is moving, or when details, like fingers, get truncated.

Please provide some feedback on whether this green screen replacement works well with this camera? Is it possible that WebinarJam has a setting which does the green screen replacement.for me?

Thanks.

Need a web cam for live streaming

I need a web cam for live streaming my video image to my Mac, for use in a live webinar.

I may place it on a tripod since the top of my monitor may be a bit low. So, I think I need a conventionally sized screw hole at the bottom of the device.

I need it to be high enough quality so that my webinar looks good.

What kind of resolution do I need?

What kinds of features are useful?

I expect to buy on eBay.

Any suggestions from this page?

Hi, my teams often bring new designs to me for Websites and Apps.

I have been looking for a way to markup my feedback on their designs digitally and send back to them quickly.

I have looked into Google Jamboard and other similar screens but they are not available in Ireland.

I have an iPad Pro and a Pencil and I was thinking of getting them to do the following, however the process is very cumbersome for the designers:

01 - email each design / screen to me
02 - I save them to Camera Roll
03 - import into a sketch program / app
04 - mark up
05 - save back to camera roll
06 - email marked up screenshots back to designers

Is anyone aware of an app or web app that reduces the amount of steps above or provides a more productive way?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

We have a YouTube channel and have over 200 videos uploaded to it.

The plan is now that we would like to download all our videos from YouTube to our PC or an external hard drive.

I have found that one video at a time can be downloaded from our YouTube channel with YouTube's Creator Studio.

There should be a way of downloading all videos at one time.

How would we download all our videos from our YouTube channel?

Thanks,
Robbie

How to play an MP3 audio file with Excel VBA without having to confirm by clicking a button on a dialog box. I just want the sound to play. Do I need to convert this to a WAV file? If so how can I convert it on a Windows PC? Thanks!!

I have a lot of Audacity aup files (one stereo song in each).  I am using an iMac.  I would like to batch export these files to mp3 files. Is there any way to 1.) batch export from aup to mp3  2.) include metadata (artist/song/track number/etc), and 3.) is there a command line option to get this done?   Ideally, I would like to run an Audacity conversion program from command line and have the metadata as command line options.  I have a feeling that I can't do this with Audacity, but I'm hoping I'm wrong... Thanks!

Adobe Premiere Pro - Installing After Effects

I had a video developer create a video for me using Adobe Premiere Pro. I also got the complete Premiere Pro project and all the related files. But when I try and open the project and resolve a missing file, Motion.aep, I am told I need to install After Effects in order to import the file.

How do I do this?

I have a Mac Premiere Pro CC 12.0

Thanks.

I have an MP4 video. I need to edit the audio and video portion. I used Any Video Converter to change the format from MP4 to MP3. That leaves me with only the audio. I used an MP3 cutter to edit the audio file to capture the part of the original audio I wanted.
This file is now ready for video creation.
How do I remove the video from the MP4 file so it can be edited, and the video creator can use the two new pieces (edited audio and edited video) to create a new video.

The end result if I get there will be the last 5 minutes of audio when the original was 6.5 minutes,
The video portion will be only 3 minutes long as I need to use a video cutter to remove the first 1.5 minutes and the last 2.0 minutes, So the two pieces used to create the new video won't be the same length. The audio 5 minutes and the video seen with the audio is playing will be 3 minutes.


Thanks.

I have an MP4 video file.  I and extended family want to watch it on  TVs.  Curious what ways you can suggest I do it.

I have a PC with VGA output connected to a VGA port on the TV (an HD capable 55" TV a couple years old).  That works.

But what other ways for those of us without the PC connected to the TV?

I have the MP4 in my iphone's pictures / videos.  It plays great on that little screen.  but it doesn't seem to be able to stream / mirror to a TV.  I hear that an apple TV box WOULD work.

Any other ways?  with a chromecast? with an apple firestick?  Can most newer DVD players play a DVD with an MP4? Or I have to convert it into a DVD format (the audio and video folders, etc.?)  and then there's actually 3 different videos.  Do I need 3 DVDs or can a DVD player select between 3 different MP4s?  Or in DVD format, have to make a menu?
