Video Blog

A lot of people have asked how I did the video blog.  I'll do another one soon and talk more about it, but I used a piece of software from Serious Magic call Vlogit!  I used a webcam that I had already and a green sheet of plastic paper clipped to my window shades as my green screen - just like they do on TV.

Serious Magic has a partnership with Playstream to do the video hosting and I had a choice between putting it up as Flash or Media Player.  I used Flash this time and I'll try Media Player next.  It was not quite perfect but it was pretty easy for the price of $49.  I've just scratched the surface of what it can do - I think someone who knew something about video production could put together a great looking piece for very little money.
