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.

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

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

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

I discovered Media Monkey's great (and, I believe, automatic) functions of (1) automatically setting the playback volume of all tracks to the same level and (2) starting the following track very nicely when a track has a fadeout ending, for almost continuous music.

But I need help.

First, how do I change those miserable dark brown and black colors on the interface to something more readable? I can't seem to find that info anywhere in the user options. Is that something in the paid version that isn't spelled out anywhere? I don't mind popping for the paid version as long as it does what I need it to do.

Next, what I want to do is to set the playback to just go from one track to another (mixed playback list, no set order) AND during the playback, "tell" Media Monkey to stop after the song playing (so I can use a PA system to make an announcement) and then resume (NOT start over) at the touch of a button.

I find it surprising that what I perceive is simple is eluding me. So I guess I should add that if this can't be done with Media Monkey and you know of another audio/media player that offers these features, let me know. I suppose I could always normalize the list and use another player if the "pause" situation of my second question here worked very smoothly.

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.

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 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,

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

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!
