Re: Mic into PC for V/O

Thanks Tim and John for your very comprehensive replies. I had just written my reply to Tim when I found your comments John so my reply is to you both with many thanks. Tim writes: I'm not sure what you mean by "which mic input do I use?" You said your motherboard (with sound card) has a mic input. ...

Mic into PC for V/O

After all my years, I’ve never had the need for recording audio through a mic connected to a PC. That need has now arisen. I’ve installed a screen capture programme to send a friend video tutorials on certain progs. Naturally the prog. mentioned recording the V/O through a mic on the PC. This is whe...

Re: Viewing video UDF files

Thanks Tim,
I have 'imgburn' on my machine so will follow this up.
His disc with the jpegs I will take back to him and follow that up. You must forgive him - he's only 93 (and I'm catching up fast).

Viewing video UDF files

A friend has passed to me a DVD of some Christmas video from 2012. He said he couldn’t play it at all. Tried it here at home with several players to no avail. Checked the disc and see that it’s a UDF file. Did a quick check online and see that one needs to convert it. I have the Freemake video conve...

You Tube & copyright music

As we know, You Tube occasionally picks up on the use of copyright music used in our videos. I have been flagged up for the use of a small part of a band in a street procession. A friend of mine recently went to a summer garden party where a big band was playing. He made a very good video using his ...

Re: Creative Soundscape Videos

Thanks a LOT John. I know I will enjoy watching and learning from your videos. Sadly our local club was closed a couple of years ago so an invitation can't be extended to visit.

Thanks again.

Pete.

Programme not recognising files.

I deliberately didn’t put the name of the programme above as I thought no one would be interested . . . Sorry. Here goes. A colleague has been given Pinnacle Studio 15HD to update from Studio 12. He asked me to install it for him. Before doing so I installed it on an older desktop machine of mine bu...

Re: Mini DV Tapes

Thanks for the interest. Progress has been made in that a friend of the deceased has offered to erase some tapes and I have started to do the same. Naturally the widow doesn't want to pass on tapes containing personal material so I'm sure we respect that. Roy. As soon as I have a worthwhile bundle o...

Re: Mini DV Tapes

Thanks Roy. I will keep some in hand. I said I would wipe them, but thinking about it, I realise that wll take me an hour each . . . . . I know there is a system for rapid wiping them but I haven't this. Do you know anything about it?? Does anyone know? I will give it some thought. Cheers. Pete.

Mini DV Tapes

Simple question. Is anyone out there interested in a quantity of used once only Mini DV tapes that I've inherited from a member now passed on??? I will clean them off. Only postage required plus a small donation to his widow. If not then they are for the bin. Very sad really.
Cheers. Pete
