How to make a video for YouTube

Does anyone know how to make a short video on a Macbook, to put on YouTube?

For direct recording into YouTube or other Flash based video web sites, use Flash Settings to select between available microphones and cameras.
If you uneed help, see Adobe's microphone suppport info at  Adobe Help for selecting your webcam is here:
Only external (Firewire) iSight (out of production for several years) has a built-in microphone.  If your Mac has a built-in iSight, it also has a separate, built-in, USB Mic.
Either kind of microphone can be selected in your  > System Preferences > Sound > Input settings.
If you want to use an external iSight with a Mac that also has a USB mic for some purpose other than recording directly into YouTube or another Flash based web site, you can usually select which mic to use depending on your desired purpose.
Many apps that can recognize multiple microphones allow you to select which micriphone either via a menu choice or the app's speparate Preferences... settings.  As one example, here is how to select a mic in QuickTimeX:
Each app works its own way, and some apps can only access the curreent System Preference setting.
A side note for other readers who are using Mac OS X Lion 10.7.x:  Neither FaceTime Version 1.1 (258) from OS X 10.7.1 nor the current Version 1.1.1 (262) from OS X 10.7.2 can use external iSight's Firewire mic.   The firewire camera works, but the Fireiwire mic is not available for selection in FaceTime > Video.

  • How to make 500MB videos for Vimeo

    When I have my Final Cut projects completed and exported in best quality, they are QuickTime mov files (H.264, 1080p/59.94fps).
    Now what do I have to do to get H.264 720p/29.97fps versions which are not larger than 500MB for free Vimeo accounts?
    Many thanks.

    Thanks for your answers.
    I've already read the information at
    But we have some videos which are about 13 minutes. Now I would like to have their quality as good as possible within this 500MB limit.
    (I know an earlier version of Handbrake let you specify the target file size, but that version made other problems (artefacts).)
    BTW I don't have "Compressor" because I didn't need it. Could I specify a target size via "Compressor"?
    Or is there another App for that purpose?

  • How do I make a movie for youtube playing music with only a title a transition and a single still?

    I want to make videos for youtube show casing music made in Garageband via Imovie, but I am having some problems figuring this out.
    So far I have a title and a transitions, but it makes it only last 5.5 seconds...
    I want to add a single picture for it to transition to, then show for the remaining duration of the video (which is supposed to be 2:20 long).
    How do I do this?

    double-click the still in your Project

  • How to complete FCE video for upload to youtube

    Hi Apple Community,
    Does any one know how, exactly step by step
    how to finish FCE video for SUCCESFUL upload
    to youtube? I so appreciate your help.

    Check this out.
    Note the link to supported
    formats. You probably want to give them an h.264 .mov file. If you don't have Compressor, export using QT Conversion. Or download the free MPEG Streamclip and have it do the transcode (in which case you would export from FCE as a QT Movie Current Settings).
    Good luck.

  • Script to encode jpg and mp3 into video for youtube?

    Sometimes I upload music and stand-up to youtube. Till now I used wine + avisynth + virtualdubmod to achieve this. Lately I realized that there is another smipler way to carry out things: ffmpeg
    I was looking for some script or one-liner which makes the encoding task, but unfortunately none of those mentioned scripts worked. They are all obsolate that are mentioned by others. Some of them works, but the resulting video are denied by youtube. Do anybody know a simple one-liner or script (or maybe a handy application) which can do the transcoding the right way?

    You don't say if you want 1 or multiple .jpg images in the video. … m%20images
    Script to encode jpg and mp3 into video for youtube?
    With x264/mp3 into a mp4 container? Any number of ways. Here are some examples.
    ffmpeg -r 1 -i file.jpg -i file13.mp3 -c:a copy -c:v libx264 -b:v 500k ouput.mp4
    ffmpeg -loop 1 -i file.jpg -c:v libx264 -t 30 -i file.mp3 -c:a copy out.mp4
    ffmpeg -f image2 -i file.jpg -i audio.mp3 -c:a copy -c:v libx264 -b:v 500k output.mp4
    Find out how you want to do, then if you want a script to automate it, something like
    #! /usr/bin/env bash
    echo "What image file?"
    read image
    echo "What audio file?"
    read audio
    echo "what video size?"
    echo "Example: 640x480"
    read size
    echo "Output file name?"
    read name
    ffmpeg -f image2 -i "$image" -i "$audio" -c:a copy -c:v libx264 -b:v 500k -s "$size" "$name".mp4
    If you want to use multiple images, look at ffmpeg docs.

  • How to download a video in youtube with firefox 4.0?

    Did you check the home page setting?
    *Firefox > Preferences > General > Startup: Home page
    If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:
    You can also check for problems with the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files in the Firefox Profile Folder that store session data.
    Delete the sessionstore.js file and possible sessionstore-##.js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.
    *Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Open Containing Folder
    Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).

  • Output file size restrictions - HD Video for YouTube

    For over a year YouTube has removed restrictions on file sizes for individuals that want to do so.  The preset output in Premier Elements 11 for "Online - HD Video for YouTube 1920X1080" will not allow a video longer than 15 minutes.  I need to remove this restriction and be able to produce files to upload to YouTube without file size restrictions.  How can I do this?

    You cannot. And, Premiere Elements 12 has the same YouTube limitations as 11.
    You need to export your Timeline to a file saved to the computer hard drive, and then upload that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
    At YouTube, you would need to explore the opportunities that it offers in the way of "extended times". It may require special accounts.
    Without further details of your Premiere Elements project preset and the properties of your source media, I would generalize and suggest that you look at the follow choices for creating this file for upload to YouTube at the YouTube web site...
    with Presets =
    MP4 - H.264 1920 x 1080p30
    YouTube Widescreen HD (changing the settings under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of the preset)
    Please review. If you have any further questions on this, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • How to download Halloween videos from YouTube?

    <By Jenny>
    It is that time of year again, the exciting Halloween! Since activities in these days are wonderful, unforgettable, impressive, crazy, and fantastic, lots of them are recorded in the form of videos and uploaded to YouTube for sharing with all the people worldwide. Do you fall in love with some interesting, meaningful and unique video files about Halloween, and want to download them as your own collections so as to enjoy them in the leisure time? If so, this thread will definitely do you a favor, for it will instruct you how to download Halloween videos from YouTube in detail.
    The software we will use here is Pavtube [YouTube Converter|], which is free for downloading, if you want to convert the downloaded FLV YouTube Halloween videos to other formats, you should use its retail version, if not, there will be watermarks of Pavtube stamped in the output files.
    Okay, now let’s begin.
    1. Download Pavtube [YouTube Converter|], install and run it.
    2. Add URL, select output format
    After launching, press “Add URL” in the main interface of this program, and then the following interface will pop up. Copy and paste URL of the Halloween videos which you want to download from YouTube into the textbox after “URL”. If you only want to use its downloading function totally for free, you should check “Only Download FLV source file”, and uncheck “Keep FLV source file”, on the contrary, if you want to convert it to other format while downloading as well as keeping the FLV source file, you should tick the checkbox of “Keep FLV source file” in advance.
    Imagine you’d like to do downloading and converting work simultaneously, in that case, you should click on the drop-down list of “Convert to” to select an output format, here I choose “iPhone MPEG-4 640X480(*.MP4)” as an example.
    Also, there are two more optional steps, namely, specify output file name and save path. Factually, this program will generate a file name and destination folder by default automatically, if you don’t like using these ones, you can type your preferred file name into the textbox after “Save as” and click on the ellipsis icon at the opposite side of “Save to” to specify a path to store the output files.
    3. Custom
    This program allows users adjusting video and audio parameters like codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, etc. You can configure all of these items according to your own requirements. For instance, if you need change the output files to have a smaller size, and do not mind the output quality, you can adjust these parameters into smaller figures.
    4. Click “OK” to start downloading and converting
    Once all the above settings are done, you can now click “OK” button to begin downloading and converting your favorite Halloween videos from YouTube at the same time. Pavtube [YouTube Converter|] will finish its tasks, even batch tasks at speed, and never let video and audio go in separate ways.
    Well, just 4 simple steps, the downloading and converting work are completed, sincerely hope this guide is helpful for you to download or convert your beloved Halloween video files from YouTube.
    By the way, I know an amused website specially designed for Halloween, it provides people with games and Halloween gifts, from which you can not only gain funs, but also get cute presents, [play this game here|], and happy Halloween.

  • Can anyone tell me how to make a video clip in color transition?

    Can anyone tell me how to make a video clip in color transition like the opening of "Oh Brother where art though" ?
    You know the scene at the start where it starts off Black and White then as we move down the timeline it transitions to a rusty brown gradually.
    It's on the Apple site for FC Studio as a promo clip.

    how to do a keyframe trasition in the Color FX room
    I realize that you can "add" keyframes to the timeline in COLORFX, but I don't believe they are always observed, and then they usually disappear in retrieved projects, and aren't persistent if you leave the room. To remember where they are... you might mark in a keyframe on those frames in another room as a pathfinder. The behaviour is consistent with a creature of the six-legged variety.
    Method 1. If you are trying to taper the effect (any effect) in COLOR FX, the most linear approach is to render two versions of the clip; one "with", one "without" and do an opacity fade once you have returned them to Final Cut. This gives you the most control, flexibility, repeatability and consistency.
    Method 2. You may attempt to keyframe the bleach bypass settings within the node itself -- the preset that comes with COLOR doesn't have any controls, but the Nattress plugin does.
    Method 3. Set up a "blend" node with your bleach bypass feeding one of the inputs and leave the second input to default to the untreated video... keyframe a transition from "1.00000" to "0.00000" and that should work.
    Note: the keyframe timeline markers will disappear from the timeline if you exit the clip, but the effect is likely to persist. At least that was what was happening a couple of minutes ago... for me, the effect and blend performed the transition just like it was previewing when rendered. This strategy is subject to being created and rendered "on the spot right now", and I advise making sure you have your renderqueue settings ready to go... load the clip from the COLORFX room using the Mac command bar at the top of the screen and render it right away. Don't try to save it for later. Just Do It.
    An announcement went around about two weeks ago that Mr. Deakins' website was back up and running, so give him another try... poor guy has been swamped probably doing Dreamweaver maintenance... yeah, that must be it...

  • How to make the video looks greenish ?

    Hi there,
    Can I know how to make a video looks bit greenish ?

    Thanks Karsten,
    Can I know, if I have about 60 cuts on the timeline and I want all the 60 cuts to be greenish, how do I apply to all at one go (instead of having to do one by one for 60 times !) ?
    Thanks again

    How can I download videos from youtube with may MacBook Pro? I cannot download with real player. So how can I do it?

    There are two apps that I know of - and I would also swear that they come from the same developer, although they've different names. Both have free trials and both cost $40 (but both do 'other' video conversion as well).
    One is WonderShare - I bought this one and it works very well for downloading YouTube videos as well as converting just about any file format you can think of.
    The other is iSkysoft Video Converter (just noticed that it's now $36).
    I tried them both and finally decided on WonderShare. Give them both a trial run and decide if you like either one enough to buy it. I don't know of any 'free' software that will allow you to download and convert YouTube videos, but perhaps someone else will come along and know of something...
    Good luck,

  • Encoding music video for Youtube - any advantage of using Pro (AME) over Elements?

    I am in the process of encoding some music videos for youtube.  I'm currently using Steve Grisetti's suggested settings from mid-2011 here:
    What I'm wondering is if the Adobe Media Encoder provided with Premiere Pro (or another such program with more features than the Premiere Elements 7 encoder) would provide better results?   For example, I noticed those programs have options such as 256kbps audio, 2-pass, and Variable Bit Rate (which PE7 doesn't seem to have).  Would that provide better quality?  Of course, I need the very best audio possible. 
    Also, I've read from various other people's suggestions, that FLV is a better export choice than h264 since less recoding by Youtube is done- any truth to that?
    Lastly, would exporting to 1080 instead of 720 (and therefore giving youtube users the option of choosing either 1080 or 720) be better for the long term, or is there any reason why 720 is suggested?
    My videos are short and were edited from DVD vob files.  I've very new to encoding so really appreciate the suggestions!

    I doubt that even a discerning ear to tell the original source Audio, after YouTube gets through Transcoding it for display. Also, viewers will be listening through their computer's speakers, and not a full home theater setup, where the Bit-Rate might make a slight difference. Also, most folk today, think that MP3's through ear-buds are "high fidelity."
    The only plus for using AME is that once you have queued the Project up, you can do other things, while it is processing the file.
    Good luck,

  • How to make a form for input in web interface builder

    Hi expert:
        How to make a form for input in web interface builder?I have already used it to do PS planning, but I don't know how to  draw lines and checkboxes . Thanks in advance.

    Open the WAD and create a new template. On the left hand navigation you will have several Web Items available. Under 'Standard' you have 'Analysis' item. Pull that into your template to the right. Under the Properties tab you need to pick the query [form/layout] that you have built in Query Designer.
    You will also find other items such as Button group, Checkbox, drop down, list box etc available. Pick and drag into the template whatever it is you require. Lets say you want a button. Under the Properties tab select the 'Command' that you require. You could use standard commands that are available there. You could also define functions and commands that you require.
    Query Designer:
    Open the QD and drag the characteristics and key figures that you require into the rows and columns of the QD. You would need to specify restrictions under the Filter tab of the QD based on the granularity of data that you require. You would need to remember that the key figures need to be made Input Ready [do this by clicking on KF and on the planning tab select "change by user and planning functions"].
    This shouldgive you a start. After you've explored it yourself a bit we can discuss further and I can certainly provide you additional details/material on these areas.

    How to make a group for selectd Object javascript

    There is currently no native way to email groups from iPad.
    The only way to do this is if your recipients are already members a a distribution group controlled elsewhere such as a Google Group or an  Exchange Organisation, then you can email the distribution group address which will then in turn forward to the individual email address of the members.
    Does it have to be email as currently you would have to add each recipient to the email manually.
    iOS to my knowledge doesn't support contact groups in context other than organisation.

    The problem with the datagridview is that it can only show one table.
    For more tables 3th party datagrid's are better. 
    Although you can start with using the old datagrid. Despite what is written on MSDN is it a complete different control then the datagridview. You can add in to your toolbox by right clicking on it and then add it.
    The datasource of a DataGrid can be a complete dataset which is showed with all its relations.
