Sample of Final Project

May 21, 2007

Podcast in iTunes

A sample of what you should see
This what the final product looks like in iTunes. Here is a sample vlog. You note the “chicklet” in the top right that links to the RSS feed you created in Feedburner. Feedburner converts your vlog into a podcast. It is like a language converter. The chicklet links to your Feedburner feed and allows folks (like me) to subscribe to your vlog as a podcast. When everything works right the vlog/podcast will be able to be viewed in iTunes. Note, on the vlog, how each episode has a short description. This is important for viewers to be able to make sense of the resulting pocast in iTunes.

Your Clock Is Ticking!

If you need help with the final project, the bell is ringing midnight. Do not assume I will be able to help if you just walk in. Check my schedule! My calender is here.

Final Project

May 21, 2007

You are running out of time if you do not have your final project done. If you have not finished you are advised to get all your videos done and posted to your Blogger Blog before you create your Feedburner feed. Then, when you create your Feedburner feed, Feedburner checks your Blogger Blog when it creates the RSS/Podcast feed. Once that is done it may not check it for quite awhile for new content. This is why I had advised folks to complete this assignment by midnight last night.

I have advised folks to post their content to the class server. There are other ways than the one I have advised to complete this assignment. For example at least a couple of folks are trying to follow the process recommended by Freevlog to post content to But, your content must be in an iTunes compatible format! Apple’s “.mov” Qucktime format is the one that is recommended. By default, Blip converts all videos to a format that is not iTunes compatible.

If you do this assignment any other way than what was advised in the class, you are on your own! Your best bet is to get your videos to me as soon as possible for posting to the server. If you have not done this, do this now. You are already late!

It is important to know there are potential gotchas in the Freevlog recommended process for posting video. To understand what these are, and why these are, you need to understand the nature of this assignment is that your podcast must work in iTunes. The Freevlog process seems to focus on open source RSS/Podcast readers like Fireant and Democracy. There is an almost philosophical aversion by some proponents of open source solutions to proprietary solutions like Apple’s iTunes. So, their tutorials may not be compatable with this final on this topic.

NOTE: Converting content from a non-iTunes compatible format to one that is iTunes compatible means using a program that does file conversion. I bought that program! You CANNOT do this conversion by merely changing the last three digits of the file name.

May 18, 2007

This is crazy, am like “I can not believe am donw with this project, i was so tensed up thinking that i will be late, or i wouldn’t know something, MY GOD. I think i gave the prof. a nervous impatient attitude, he wasn’t like that, but i guess silly me not paying attention enough in class to know what to do. SO here i am done with my 2 videos and an mp3 presentation. HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT.

Finally, i’m done…I think

After many hours of watching help at freevlog, I think I finally got it. So here’s the url to my blog. I decided to make this sort of a family blog, so it is a video blog of the weddings we’ve had so far in my family. Coincidentally there’s only been 3. My blog is here.
