Videoblogging week day 1

On the videoblogging mailing list, we decided to do a video blogging week. This page collects all videoblog posts from the participants.

You can join us in videoblogging week, just let us know and start posting!

Jay’s post for today is edited in iMovie and is a movie about MNN, a Manhattan public TV station where he works. Ordinary people making TV, just like videoblogging.

Steve Garfield’s first entry for the week is about a family tree.

I did a bunch of little movies this afternoon in central park, and decided to use the best ones, uncut and unedited. They’re inside this post.

Adam Curry speaks flemish because he’s from Holland, and he actually lives quite close to my mom. He’s big on the whole video-on-internet thing, he’s quite a pioneer with RSS enclosures. Anyways, Jay knew him from his days at MTV as a vijay.

Jay’s post for today, which he posted before we had our talk today, was done with narration, which is kinda against his own principles of videoblogging (no editing, fast). I guess we’re all experimenting!

We talked about the space problem: if you create a daily videoblog for years, you might run into storage and bandwidth problems.

Creating this post was fast, took about 20 minutes altogether. Filming was very easy with my small camera, I just pulled it out whenever I wanted to film something. The movies are each around 150-200K. I optimized them all with the same standard settings. I didn’t edit any of the movies, I posted them the way they were filmed. I used my small photocamera for the filming. I used the me-tv.org to embed the movies, but changed some of the settings. That part was too error-prone though. Have to find a better solution. According to jay, typepad now creates the code for you when you upload a Quicktime file.

  1. this is a fun way to experience a conversation
    i like the idea that you could film a continuous event in real time, then allow it to develop over time by posting it in fragments.
    it has a nice feeling
    in a way it slows the content
    down rather than speeds it up
