SlideShare Adds Audio and Meeting Rashmi

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Slideshare recently launched slidecasting, the ability to add audio. I tested it using the Camtasia powerpoint narration feature, but looks like there is some bug. Photo: Jennifer Pozner. That's Rashmi Sinha, the CEO of Slideshare. And everyone know how much I love SlideShare ) I got to met her at BlogHer and talk about Slideshare! But, for me, what I really like is the access to the excellent content on the site and the community.

NTEN and SalesForce Screencast: Learnings About the Interview/Documentary Approach

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

One thing I learned just two weeks ago from a phone call to the TechSmith tech support guy is that the.wmv files from Ready/Talk can be run through microsoft media encoder - so they could be pulled into Camtasia and edited. However, the idea of editing a long file in Camtasia does not sound appealing to me.). So that left me with a few hours of video and audio to edit and that's too much to do in Camtasia.

Using Web Conferencing Software To Create A Screencast

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

But wait a minute, what if I could create a screencast out of a screensharing session or using a web conference system like Ready/Talk that offers video/audio recording? Does he edit in Camtasia? So, I just plunged in with Ready/Talk and made a quick video/audio capture of me talking to myself while looking at my screen. Ready/Talk outputs the file into.swf format which can't be brought into Camtasia for editing. Click To Play.

Converting GoToMeeting recording to something you can actually use

Playback was audio-only. Other folks suggested replaying the file through Camtasia , but I wasn't going to buy a $300 piece of software for this. After trying more webinar/meeting tools than I can possibly count, I'm pretty happy with Citrix GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar. As a nonprofit registered with TechSoup, you can get a full year of the complete GoToWebinar package for just $94 a year. Regular price: $4,788/year. Killer.

The Making of "Product Demo - Mobile Beacon" Video

Tech Soup Blog

As for the sound, I had an Audio-Technica AT899 lavalier microphone attached to record my voice. The middle sequences with the websites were captured using a combination of Adobe Captivate and TechSmith Camtasia Studio for Mac. Digital Storytelling is in the air around TechSoup these days, and thanks to a grant from Symantec we have been able to experiment and create some new videos. We aimed to make this video informative, concise, and personable.

Learning Journal: Experimenting With Adding Music to Web Videos

Lack of technical skills or software tools in cutting, splicing, fading the audio and weaving it with the video track. You can't "silence" the audio in the video by clip or sections of the story board. Reflection: This time I experimented with using QuickTime Pro as the audio editor and video editor. This time I was able to edit out some of my "direction" in the film and add music, but again I couldn't silence the audio of the video.

Technorati Tag Bookmarklet: The Screencast

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Unfortunately, the software was a little too much of a pig for my middle-aged computer, so there are some places where the over hiccups (if I'm not saying um) and it goes out of synch with the movie (more an editing problem on my part as you can edit the storyboard with the audio and there places where I deleted the audio and re-recorded it and it didn't synch right.) Marshall has a great post about a technorati tag bookmarklet that can save you a lot of grunt work.
