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!

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?

Hi,

We would like to get Freeview or terrestrial channels on our large display.

We are thinking of purchasing an Amazon Fire TV and connecting it to the large display to give access to these channels.

Does the Amazon Fire TV come with Freeview or terrestrial channels?

If not, is there a way of getting these channels on to the Fire TV and how would this be done?

Thanks,
Robbie

Scan of 35mm color slides results in an image that is 7.5 MB and 8,300 x 29,000 pixels. Irfanview is able to open the file and in inches it is 2.60 x 9.10. I've tried Microsoft Picture Manager for cropping and the result is a blank image.
What can be done to capture the images on the color slide? The top one had been used to create a 4x6 inch print by a camera shop.


Revised: well upon loading here they can actually be seen fairly well. Except the second one from the top which was a closeup of someone's face and maybe a chest up shot of someone. That ones shows nothing.

Hi,

Can anyone recommend an alternative to Google Jamboard... not just an alternative to the software, but the full software and hardware package.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I would  like to buy some tv screens in the car, for the kids (in the back) (10 years old).
Now I have all my videos in mp4 format or avi, mkv, not DVD.  Something easy to install & use.

Any idea what would be the best buy (Europe region, not US)?

My cousin (who I have no way to contact) put his father's color slides on the father's computer so the many dozens of images could be viewed as the screen saver, one photo at a time.
I have slides I need to get to my computer.
There are Youtube videos using DSLR cameras and cereal boxes with a hole, piece of paper, shine a light to show the image and then use the camera to take a photo. These slides are not worth buying a new camera.

I doubt the cousin used a high powered camera. He could have used an actual slide projector since i know his father had one.

Any other methods?

Streaming video from my Canon 40X SX720 HS to a MacBook High Sierra. I have not yet connected my camera to my network, but hope to figure out how to set up the streaming.

According to Canon, they do not support this but it requires third party software and works like other camera models from Canon.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Using a green screen as backdrop for a webinar

I am finding it difficult to find a low-cost location for a webinar, with a desk, good lighting, that's quiet, etc. Not to mention, you can't exactly bring in gear to the library.

So, I am looking more closely at my green screen at home. This is super easy to set up. I have great lighting equipment.

How do I do live webinar on a green screen?

Is it even possible?

If I instead made a 30-minute video of myself and released it as a YouTube video, can I call that a webinar? Or do people assume that a webinar includes other guests?

Curious to hear your suggestions...

We have an MP4 video and we need to convert it to DVD format so it can be burned. Ashampoo is good for the burning but it can not seem to find the folder where the video files are located. It shows some as empty when they are not.

We have used Wondershare and iSkyDVD creator but their company name is across the screen since we use the free versions.
We had DVDFab9 and now version 10 and the settings are different it seems.

Any step by step to get the MP4 to DVD format > burning.

Here is a list of common video formats on Any Video Converter which we have used many times. There are dozens of others on the drop down list but most of those target a specific brand, like Apple, Xbox, etc.

Highly specialized: is anyone familiar with the audio program GOLDWAVE?

It's a powerful audio processing program, but I am having trouble understanding some of the instructions on applying the effects across many multiple files.

If you know anything about the program, please let me hear from you!

The MCTS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 certification validates your skills in supporting the maintenance and administration of the Exchange servers in an enterprise environment. Learn everything you need to know with this course.

I would like to record the incoming audio & video (I'm playing a Computer
Based Training) from a site which I would like to record for review/revision
later.

With ATube catcher (on my patched Win 7 & IE11), it  hangs/freezes the
screen.

I have a very old version (maybe Ver 7) on my Win XP & it has an option
to "record a video of a screen" but after recording, it only saves 1 frame.
I use Chrome (as IE 11 can't support Win XP).


Ideally, I need a freeware which records at the Wifi (Internet) rather than
trying to capture the screen video which often doesn't work very well.
Something that I could press a key combination to start recording &
another key combination to stop recording.   Ideally in compressed mp4

Any freewares?

Video overlay of presenter onto webinar screen

I have seen this before, where the presenter on a live webinar showed himself on the bottom of the screen. He could move himself left and right, and probably up and down.

Hw was likely at his desk at home, but his background was not visible.

How is this done?

What is the name of this technology?

Thanks

Using Premiere Pro (Mac) to isolate an audio sound

Using Audacity, I simply select the region about a sound wave and click Play. This tells me if I captured the entire sound. If it is an errant sound, the great thing about audio and no other sound is playing, you can usually delete that.

With video, it's a different story.

I have a dozen clicks to remove from my video. Each was made by my clicker as I advanced the PowerPoint I was using as a teleprompter.

So, I need to isolate the sound and over-write with white noise.

I can easily set a marker BEFORE the sound. I need to see how long the sound is and isolate the entire click.

Suggestions?

Thanks

We have a 3 minute video and the video is a series of still photos. Two of them have inappropriate content. We'd like to edit these two photos and replace it with another photo shown in the same video. The audio is suitable and no changes needed.
Someone here on EE was kind enough to edit this video for us in the past. Anyone else or suggest a simple editing software?

Need a Movie recording program for Mac

I use iMovie sometime, but can not find how to set my microphone. My Shure microphone with a U-PHORIA UM2 shows up as CODEX on Audacity. Can I use this with Movie?

What alternate movie tools are there?

Can I use Premiere Pro? If so, how do I record? And can I set my Mic.?

What other tools are there to record my video, and use my CODEX? I have High Sierra


Thanks

Some of the youtube videos downloaded (by ATube catcher or YTD) has English
subtitles in them (even if I did not choose in youtube to turn on the Eng subtitle)
but when I download "Wicked Tuna" videos, the Eng subtitles are not there in
the downloaded videos (with ATube or YTD) even if I specify in youtube to turn
on the subtitle.
