Hi ,

One of my clients has asked me if i could create a tuition video for them. Could anyone recommend a program (doesn't have to be free) that records voice , my movements on the desktop and the ability to circle or annotate parts of the video? I am looking for something easy to create a clean, simple video- this isn't for a Fortune 500 company , just a small firm of Opticians.

Thanks

I would like to take a look at the actual playlist file that gets transmitted from the server to the client when the client requests an HLS video stream. According to HLS specification, the Server must transmit what's called a "playlist."
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-pantos-http-live-streaming-19#page-7

I was thinking about using WireShark networking packet analyzer to intercept this file, but I am not sure how to do it.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

I have 3 MOV video files filmed by my iPhone 6s. Two of the files I can import to Sony Vegas 13.0 - but the third one cannot. However, it can be played by video player software. eg. VLC Player, Windows 10 etc.

Is there a way of 'fixing' it so that Vegas can import it?
Is there someway I can see what the problem is?

Thanks

The video cutter works great. 5 minute video and you can cut off the first 90 seconds and the last 60 seconds if you desire.

I used VLC to remove the video from a Youtube video, leaving nothing but the audio. Works great.

We downloaded their audio cutter and when we entered 01:13 for the "start" and 02:10 for the "end" (of the total which is 2:20) clicked on "cut" we got no cut.
After the cut to an MP3 audio when we play back it's still the 2:20 audio. We need to cut it down to 4-5 seconds.

Please refrain from suggesting Windows Movie Maker even if can be used as an audio cutter.
The sheer name of that of "movie maker" means that is that is the majority of what it does.
I spent an hour trying to cut a video using WMM and failed and got it done in under 5 minutes by locating, downloading and using the Free Video Cutter which by it's name is for what it is to be used for. Free Video Cutter is for cutting videos. WMM for making movies.

Hey Guys -

I have what has gotten to be a fairly large library of movies, TV Shows, etc after converting my DVD collection a while back.  I'm very detailed for how I organize my media and everything is scraped, renamed, and sorted as it should be.  Unfortunately, in many apps such as Plex and VLC, the title used for video files is the title within the file's metadata.  I realize that I could easily remove metadata from files in Windows, but doing so would take forever.

What I'm Looking For
What I'm looking for is an application (or script) which would have the following features:
- Replace video's Title in metadata with the actual filename of the video's file
- Be compatible with MKV, MP4, and other current HD containers (Helpful if supported legacy ones such as AVI, too)
- Not require reencoding the video for this change to occur (Instant)
- Be able to target a path (recursively) for it to search for video files (Even though metadata is also present) and process them in batch without having to save to a different location
- Windows compatible (or be able to run against a UNC path if Linux - sure;y there's more out there than a bash script, though)

I've found a few tools, but none have quite been exactly what I need.  I'm happy to purchase an app if that's my only option and am comfortable with the command line, PowerShell, etc...

Thanks!

I have need to load a few different types of audio files (mp3, wav, aiff, au) and modify them programmatically. However, I'm not sure where to start since I don't know much about this field.

If I want to read/write an mp3 file, are there codec sdk's that will handle that part and I can just manipulate the data and write it back out with the codec?  Or do I have to learn the file formats myself and implement that?

Are there good resources to help me with this?

If it makes a difference, I can work with C++ or Python (and maybe Java).

Thanks!

We are trying to develop a series of instructional videos and need some assistance.  The file here was recorded with Jing http://screencast.com/t/LfEADb1u0 and has audio and video included.

What I would like to do without paying $300 for Camtasia, is to take an already existing audio such as what you see in the link above or in the attached file, and both separate the existing audio from it, as well as overlay new audio on top of it.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.2016-07-04_1252.swf

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the appropriate section, but it seemed to be a close match. -- I am developing some training videos to be played back on Microsoft's Windows Media Player. I would like to add Closed Caption, via Synchronized Accessible Media Interchange, or SAMI files. I know that the SAMI files are written in HTML and Cascading Style Sheets, which I haven't worked on for years, but I could get up to speed in a few days.

That said, I can't imagine there isn't a better way to add Closed Caption (SAMI files) to a WMP video, other then to manually hard code the files in an HTML file. Some of my training videos go on for hours (Chapter after Chapter), so I would be writing HTML for the next two decades to get it all completed.

Does anyone know of an application used to create Synchronized Accessible Media Interchange, (SAMI files) in some automated manner?  

Your advice and any tutorials would be much appreciated!

Best Regards,
Fulano

Certain videos are recorded at a very low volume and I would like to boost that.  currently my external speakers are pumped to max 10!.
Surely there must be software that can boost volume.

If you are creating a webpage with a video on it, is there a way to create a situation whereby if you are watching a video and then close the browser window, the next time you open up the web browser, the video will resume at the point where you left it?

I know there are extensions you can add to your browser which do this, but what I was more thinking is whether there is a way to make this happen without the client having to install anything to make it happen.

I know youtube seems to be able to "remember" where you were, but I do not know how it achieves this.

If you could possibly fill me in on my ignorance here! Especially if such a thing cannot be done.

Thanks.

Please help me!!!

I have a cobra dashcam I got from costco.  There's a video file (.avi format) that I need to get back.  

When I put the micro SD card in the PC, it doesn't show the file.  Using recuva, it says that the file was overwritten by a more recent file (even though there's 1.5GB of available space on the 8GB SD card) and it's not recoverable.  (it overwrites older files with newer ones).

Didn't think I could do it, but I checked the box next to the file name and had Recuva do a recovery.

It said it recovered it - there's a file xyz.avi on my PC.  in windows media player and VLC, it says it's not a valid media file.

I ran another program - asf-avi-rm-wmv repair v1.82 to repair the recovered file and it created another file but also doesn't play.

Is there any apps / methods to see if there's any images / video at all on any of these files?  I've seen jpegs that got corrupted. - part of the pic looks OK and then the bottom has static / 1 color.

Any way to look inside these files that are about 1GB each?  

And the motivation - I was on 2 lane highway, a cop on shoulder was doing a traffic stop. I was in right lane and changed to left lane.  A guy in a rush in left lane behind me blew his horn, then when I changed back to right lane, he swerved real close in front of me.  Then when he was pulling into a business, gave me the finger!  And there was traffic on the road so even if I didn't move to left, he would be behind another car right in front …
