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?

Thanks

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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,
Fulano

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?

Thanks.

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?

Thanks.

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" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lH54eA ... 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.

Thanks

Came across this on Wired today:
https://www.wired.com/story/ai-will-make-forging-anything-entirely-too-easy
I highly recommend following the "Watch" link within; it leads to a video on YouTube of one of the researchers from Stanford editing a video of George W. Bush to insert new facial and speech expression in real time using an off-the-shelf webcam.

Yep... We're going to need entirely new techniques for determining and maintaining authenticity for things like this. Hey, maybe that can be one of those uses for quantum computing somehow... I'm also thinking blockchain solutions too (even though I really have a pretty weak grasp on blockchain, it does seem like a primary purpose is to help with data integrity.)

Photoshop brought about many similar problems for photography and all sorts of techniques have had to be created to detect when things are doctored.

But really, it's most important to always have a healthy level of skepticism... Even without any sort of editing of a photograph, it's easy to bend the truth just by what you choose to show in the frame!

I'm looking for a CDN that's free or affordable for videos like YouTube. However, I don't want to use YouTube for other reasons. I would like to upload videos, and once they're uploaded have them playable onto a website. Any recommendations?

We have a series of audios of conferences and have categorized them by presenter.  Since windows folder displays audio with 'Contributing Artist, Title, Album, etc.', we want to place the real authors of each audio.  We  can do this one by one, but looking for way to change 15 audios authors with one name (and do the same with the rest of audios we have).  How can we go about it?

I have a site made on WordPress. I have inserted a video from the media gallery. The only issue is that it's a standard player and cannot edit controls or anything else. I have tried plugins but none cater my needs. Any suggestion on how to manipulate the code and make the video appear the way I want? For instance no controls and there's a black header and footer I wish to remove. Thanks for any suggestions.

I have some old movie clips in .mpg format.   In what format can I put these on a flash drive so a presenter can show them.  She'd have to be able to fast forward/backward for review and go from file to file easily.
Thanks,

Anyone use it?
Suddenly ours won't open. Coincidence that it won't open while the pc has other symptoms.
If you have the free version is there an expiration date on the free version? I do not see anything about expiration in any of the comments posted on CNET.

I used Movie Captioner to export a .scc file to add to a DVD project in Encore. I've attached a screen shot of the properties data once I've done this. After I build and burn the DVD I test it in iDVD Player with the captions on and they do not show.  Anyone know why?

I'm curious as to why some artists post on VEVO versus YouTube.
Musical artists in particular.

Dear Experts,
In Lightworks version 12 when I wanted to change the volume level of an audio track I could see a yellow horizontal line on the audio track.  If I right clicked on it I could create a node.  Raising or lowering this node would change the volume level.

I am not being forced to use Lightworks 14 and the yellow line is now light green.  I don't seem to have the ability to create nodes by right-clicking any more.

How do I restore this feature?
Best Wishes,

I have some audio from a radio talk show. my intention is that it's not high fidelity / could even be mono.  I want to get the smallest file size without too much degredation considering it's just people talking.

I am using streaming audio recorder and chose MP3 for the output.

For example, 1 file I have is 2meg and 1 min 30 seconds.  the properties of the file says bitrate 173 bps.  Not sure if that's high / low fidelity.

I'd like to have the smallest size file for audio.... and also, using audio to video converter websites, I get an mp4 that's 2MB also (static picture or black screen would be fine).

What are some things I should know / do to get the smallest files for spoken word audio?

thanks!

EE Experts,

I have become obsessed lately with Windows Media Center (WMC). I have over 2,000 titles recorded over the last 3 years. Microsoft discontinued support for WMC some time ago. I started using WMC before Microsoft dropped support of Electronic Program Guide (EPG). Some of my titles have metadata, and some do not. I am ignorant of how or what determines which titles get metadata and which ones do not. My primary goal for now is to be able to load Synopsis data. So as I continue to capture titles (USB hard drives are amazingly cheap extra storage space), I can include a synopsis of my own creation that I can search on to find the exact title that I am looking for without having to watch each video to discover if it the one I am looking for or not.

I just made a Google search that linked me to a Microsoft document titled Windows Media Center Guide Listings Format. In the summary for this document, the first sentence is "This document describes how to import program data into the Electronic Program Guide data store for Windows Media Center on a Windows 7 computer." The Introduction says "This document describes how to use LoadMXF.exe ..."

My question is does this document contain the information that I need to accomplish the goal that I described above? I'm I barking up the right tree or should I be looking someplace else?
