Video podcast?

by rollingp / November 10, 2005 6:32 AM PST

I normally listen to the Buzz Out Loud podcast on the way to work, and so I'm not so sure about a video podcast would work for me.

Unless you guys did a video podcast once week, kind of like a round up on the week? Just a thought?!

The video podcast will in no way interfere with your normally scheduled Buzz Out Loud! We're still working on the details of it. It will probably start as being Molly's Friday Buzz video as a subscription video podcast, with more content added later.

Can she do it in a Bikini?

Just kidding Happy

I love the idea of a Video Podcast - though it's got to be worth the extra just because so many Video Podcasts are just a camera pointing at a person for half an hour!

I don't know, but it might work just to take a video of the regualar podcast... Thought it wouldn't be as good unless it was all planned out with the background plasma like on the buzz video. Not sure.

I think it would be good to offer it in at least three forms. One for iPods, one for PMPs (XviD), and one for the PSP.

I usually listen to podcasts on my Dell Axim. But most video podcasts are in a quicktime format, which I have not been able to find a player for pocket pc. So if you do a video podcast could you have it in a format I can use. Divx or Windows Video Format.

That should work on everything?

XviD is a MP4 format?

Video on PPC

I have tried finding players for .mov and I haven't found one that works. I can play Divx and .wmv

If someone knows about a player for .mov I would love to hear about it.

MP4 is usually .mp4, not .mov

And that seems to be the lowest common denominator

or .3gp as that plays on practically anything?

I've noticed most video podcasts are in either ,mov or .mp4.

I'll have to see if there are other options.

What is MP4?
by vic_ilene / April 28, 2007 6:24 PM PDT
In reply to: so far...

MP4 is one of Multimedia containers which are for example the well known AVI (.avi), MPEG (.mpg, .mpeg), Matroska (.mkv, .mka), OGM (.ogm), Quicktime (.mov) or Realmedia (.rm, .rmvb).

MP4 is a file format specified as a part of the ISO/IEC MPEG-4 international standard. It is used to store media types defined by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group, and can be used to store other media types as well. It is, or will be, typically used to store data in files, though it will be used in data streams and possibly in other ways.

MP4 is streamable and supports all kinds of multimedia content (multiple audio-, video-, subtitlestreams, pictures, variable-framerates, -bitrates, -samplerates...) and advanced content (officially called "Rich Media" or "BIFS") like 2D and 3D animated graphics, user interactivity, DVD-like menus... - next to nothing handled by the often used AVI

It??s such a pop multimedia format that could be played on most media players and portable video players.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
