What are the best methods for recording content showing within Kodi 17.6 and saving it in a universal video format such as .AVI or .MPEG that can be watched later on a Windows, Mac, or Android device?

I will only be doing this with non copyrighted and non restricted content.

Are there any Kodi plug ins that will do this?

Is it safe to use a Sharpie Fine Point marker to write on blank CD, DVD, Blu-ray? Forever; I've been using a regular Sharpie Fine Point marker to write on the top of blank media. I never had any problems or damage from my discs that I can think of. However, I was reading online that this can damage this disc(s) overtime. Is this true or false? What do you guys and gals use to write on blank media?

Happy New Year!

I have a Verbatim 25GB 6x blu-ray disc. Before I burned anything to the disc Windows 10 said total size 22.5GB. Now after I burned 20.4GB onto the disc, Windows 10 now says total size 22.3GB.

Does this sound "normal"? First time burning a blu-ray disc successfully, always burned with CDs and DVDs and never noticed this before. Never had this happen to a CD, DVD or DVD+R DL.

I need to edit an MP4 file, but need a free tool for this. I mainly need to chop of the start or end, or remove a slight "hiccup" in the middle.

What can you suggest?

Thanks

I need some help if possible.  

My school is very much behind the times, so we are in need of upgrading.

Our president wants specifically to have wireless connections (literally no wires needed to connect a laptop to the system), a very simple way to record high-quality video and audio in the classrooms, and the ability to broadcast class sessions online in real time.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on this?

We currently have a student led live feed that runs in the morning and then at the close of school.  We are using a sony camcorder on a tripod that takes the input from a mic that the kids use and then a logitech webcam that captures the video.  We send these to a laptop running VNC and stream the production to the classrooms via vnc over the LAN.  I know this is a crappy setup, but it works.  We are looking for something more reliable and user friendly.  Possibly even having it streamed over the internet so parents can watch.  Does anyone have any experience or suggestions to accomplish something like this?

Years ago, Moodlogic was the best way to organize mp3 files. It compared the mp3 to the gracenotes db and was incredibly accurate. It has since been taken down and I have tried several apps that all do a poor job. I am looking for the best current app.

I'm trying to stream content using Livestreamer from YouTube to VLC. However, the streaming starts but the video is frozen. I notice no audio is present as well. Any ideas what It could be? I tried the smallest resolution 144p and I get the same results as if I try at 1080p.

Hello,

What is the best/simplest way to create a customized tracklist to display when playing a CD?

My mother is a (young) 83 year-old who spends quite a bit of time driving in her car each week. She really enjoys listening to recorded talks but has exhausted her supply and is tech-UN-savvy. She's quite comfortable using the CD player in her car however, so I told her I would be happy to create some CDs containing talks from the public domain.

The talks download as MP3 files and we agreed that the simplest navigation scheme for her would be to have the tracklist display as follows:

    |    Track #    |    Speaker Name    |    Date    |    Venue    |    Title    |

I haven't created many CDs in that manner but it seems like downloaded files (or maybe all MP3 files) usually contain data which appears by default in the tracklist. If that is correct, and:

if I've got the data I want to use in five corresponding columns in an Excel spreadsheet, what is the best method or software for:
    1) overwriting the default data and
    2) creating a tracklist from my spreadsheet?


By the way, I've got VLC Media Player installed. Is that a good option?

Thanks

I plan to get the 30-day free trial for Adobe Premiere and wonder if Adobe Premiere would replace Audacity (for me) for audio editing?

I have use Audacity for years to make my own recordings and am pretty handy with it. But if Adobe Premiere is good enough, I may have no need for Audacity.

Thoughts?

Hello,

When playing MP3 audio files in VLC media player, how do you use hotkeys for [Pause only] and [Play only]?

In VLC media player, going to Tools > Preferences > Hotkeys results in the following window:
 2017-08-22e_EE.png
As can be seen, pressing {Space} is the default setting for toggling between [Play] & [Pause]. This hotkey works great.

Also shown however, are the hotkeys (Browser Stop & Browser Refresh) for the actions, [Pause only] & [Play only] respectively.

What do the latter hotkeys refer to? In other words, why would you even need to have a browser (eg Chrome) open in order to play MP3 files using VCL?

(Note: My understanding of the above two actions is that unlike toggle, which changes Play/Pause to the opposite of its current state, [Pause only] will pause the recording if it is currently playing but if currently paused, will leave it unchanged. And similarly, [Play only] will begin playing the recording if it is currently paused and if already playing, will leave it in that mode.)

The following two screenshots show how hotkeys can be modified:
 2017-08-22f_EE.png 2017-08-22g_EE.png
And the next screenshot displays the results after changing the hotkeys for [Pause only] & [Play only] to {Alt+s} & {Alt+p} respectively:
 2017-08-22h_EE.png
The problem however, is that when VLC is active, pressing either of those hotkeys has no effect.

What would prevent those hotkeys from working and what other shortcuts are available for activating [Pause only] & [Play only]?

Thanks

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

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.
