Three ways to convert popular video to Flash video (FLV)

Which kind of website is the hottest nowadays in Web 2.0? Of course it is the video sharing website, such as Youtube, Google Video, Yahoo! video…The content of this kind of websites is of all kinds of things, but the same thing of these websites is that they all use Flash as their video media format, or rather flash video (FLV).

FLV is a brand new streaming video format. It makes use of the widely used platform on the Internet – Adobe Flash Player, and incorporate video into the Flash animation. FLV enables your videos can be viewable to 98% of all Internet users and bring great convenience to the broadcasting of Internet video.

To add FLV to web pages, you need to convert your video to FLV, and make a flash video player on your website to control the playback of the FLV files. Now I introduce three ways to convert video to FLV.

1. Moyea Video4Web Converter
This Video4Web Converter is a Freeware and professional tool to convert all popular video to flv, video to mov, mp4, 3gp and 3g2. It can change the values of the video for brightness, contrast, and volume. You may also trim and crop the video to fit your particular requirement.

2. Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder
Starting with Macromedia Flash MX 2004, it had already supported FLV decoding, but I suggest you use the latest version Flash 8. This version has an independent FLV conversion tool: Flash 8 Video Encoder. This encoder also provides a lot of video settings to meet your need.

3. Online converter
This method is famous to a lot of Internet users. You can convert your videos from your computer hard disk, or from online videos using different protocols (http, ftp, rtmp…) to FLV with the online converter.
But this method is not recommended to convert video, especially for some important video files. For there are several reasons:
Reason 1: It will take more time to convert videos compared with some desktop converters.
Reason 2: It requires that you are in a good internet connection. If the connection speed is slow, the convertion will be very slow or just stop.
Reason 3: The quality of the resulting video is not ensured, various problem is possible, such as audio and video is not synchronized, or only the audio is converted by not does the video…

Listening To Audio Books: Yesterday And Today

I am sure that you have heard that listening to something when you are sleeping, increases your chances of retaining that information.


That can be true, because when you are sleeping (or otherwise not really paying attention to what you are hearing), your subconscious is doing the work of taking in the information. Your conscious mind knows right from wrong and files information into different categories. However, your subconscious is completely different. It will take in the information no matter what is right or wrong.


A large number of people believe that the audio book was a very recent invention, but it is not! The Royal National Institute For The Blind created the first audio book in the 1920s. They were listened to on those old record players that you might see in a museum. They have a large horn and a crank handle. Back then, you had to turn the handle in order for the record player to be played and listened to. The audio book has come a long way since then.


You can now listen to audio books on CDs, MP3s, on your PDA and more. You can download an audio book and pay for it on the Internet in as little as a few minutes.


So, what exactly is an audio book?


Well, in the most simplest of explanations, audio books are just books that are meant to be listened to instead of read. Someone has to record his or her voice in a studio in order to create an audio book.


Audio books have been around for a very long time, first introduced in England in the 1920s! However, if we go even further back in time, there were audio books created by the Library of Congress in the United States. The Library of Congress was specifically created for the American Foundation for the Blind. Those audio books were distributed free of cost throughout the United States.


Believe it or not, there is one magazine published that particularly focuses on the audio book industry Audiofile, with Robin Whitten as the Founder and Editor of the magazine. According to Robin Whitten, Caedmon, which is now a subsidiary of Harper Collins Publishers,can be credited with having started the recording of literature as far back as fifty years ago.


Caedmon was a small business in New York that began recording the audio of authors and poets in the 1950s. Some of the most popular recordings at the Caedmon were of Dylan Thomas, T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost, Fitzgerald, and others. In Caedmon, these authors recorded their own pieces of work and created records to be played. The precise history of the audio book can be argued and is a little controversial.


Of course, records turned into audio book cassette tapes during the sixties, seventies and eighties. However, the audio book gained popularity in the 1990s more than ever.


With the convenience and ease of the Internet, audio books have come a long way, from LPs, records and cassettes to CDs, MP3s, and PDAs. However, you do not have to listen to recently recorded audio books just because the formats have greatly changed over time. You can find and listen to old versions of audio books, even some of the first audio books ever created!

Review of Google Video Internet Television and Video Distribution Site

Google Video, currently in beta, is the video distribution or internet television service being promoted by the world’s largest search engine Google. Like their major competitors in the internet video world YouTube, and Yahoo Video they offer anyone with an Internet connection the ability to upload video clips and share them with friends, family, and the world, all for free. Users are invited to leave comments and save videos directly to their own computers for playback in Google’s own video player.

For Content Producers

You can upload free or commercial videos and set prices and previews for commercially available videos. Google offers easy to use software for uploading your video and everything is available using your free Google account. You can make money by selling your content and can upload a huge amount of videos at the same time.

Pros

With Google providing the back end, it’s very fast, reliable, isn’t going anywhere, and will probably stay free forever. Users can download your video to their computers and via private reports you can monitor how many views and download your videos are receiving without that information being made public. The Google video upload tool is very effective for quicker video uploading. You can login using your existing google account and use regular urls in the description that automatically become links to wherever you want.

Cons

No ability for people to subscribe to your videos, so you can’t get regular content subscribers in the way you can with other video sites, like YouTube or Yahoo video. There are no user profile pages, just an option to view more videos from a particular user, There isn’t the same community you can experience on other video sites, with messages, profiles, etc.

100 Megabyte video upload limit, and longer delays for video to be verified then on competing sites. It can take up to a week before your video goes live. Google Video only has a top 100 list and a movers and shakers list, and categories. There are substantially less ways to sort vides then on competing sites, so there are less lists you can get your video on to get more visitors.

For Content Consumers

Pros

Very fast, with Google as a backend, the search function actually brings up relevant videos, so if you type in old videos of WWII that’s actually what you get back. Doesn’t go down, allows you download the video in different formats and you can put the movies on your video IPOD or PSP. You can get a few different converters and burn downloaded Google videos to regular DVDS.

Google also has a lot of relationships with major television stations and content producers, so it contains a large amount of useful full length movies, and a free content area that is backed by sponsors that has content comparable to regular or from regular broadcasting. (documentaries, films, stock footage).

Cons

No subscriptions, favorites, or other community features. You can’t view a user’s profile to learn more about who is posting the video or video. Very few ways to sort content besides searching for keywords or viewing the top 100.

Community

It has comments and ratings, but with no profile pages, no groups, and no subscriptions the community is rather lacking on Google Video. Video comments are usually one or two sentences and similar to what you would find on competing sites.

Summary

Google video is a robust and ever changing video distribution site, backed by the most popular website in the world with the latest and greatest technology. It still has a lot of problems, but already contains a lot of high quality content and is a must for anyone who just wants to watch videos online. It’s not very good for networking and if you’re looking for more of a community to share videos with you’ll need to check out one of its competitors like YouTube.

Future of Google video

It’s still in beta, so it’s not certain, but you’ll be sure it’s not going anywhere and will have almost certainly end up with some sort of strong revenue model, maybe integration with Google Adwords in addition to paid content etc.

List in Yahoo Free And Drive More Traffic With Audio Blogs

Traffic remains one of the lifeblood of any online business. There are basically two categories of traffic generation: free traffic and paid traffic.


In paid traffic, you have to pay someone to bring the traffic to you. For example, if you’re running a Google Adwords campaign for a selected group of keywords, when someone searches for that keyword, sees your ad and clicks on it, you’ll have to pay for that click. This can easily amount to a huge sum of money at the end of the month, as most Google advertisers have found out.


Besides Google Adwords, other form of paid advertising include classified ads, banner advertising, ezine ads, solo mailings and so on.


Results vary depending on the experience of service provider and the advertiser himself. For example, if you’re running your own Google Adwords campaign, you’ll

have to tweak and filter keywords that work for you and those that don’t.


Of course if you have more budget you might outsource the tasks of managing your Google Adwords campaigns to some company so as to free up your time for other marketing activities.


Besides paid traffic, there are also strategies you can use to drive traffic to your site, without costing you any money; hence the term ‘free traffic’. Some free traffic generation strategies include press release, article writing, ad swaps and so on.


One of the newer ways to drive traffic which I believe is widely under utilized is through the use of audio blogs. The focus of this article then is on how to generate more free traffic using audio blogs.


But first, what exactly are ‘audio blogs’?


Audio blogs are just like any other blogs save for one difference – they have more audio mp3 files posted. When you click on these audio links, depending on the setup of your computer system, your system will start to download the files and automatically play them on your PC.


There is one big secret that most people don’t know about when it comes to Audio blogs. The secret is this: You can actually get a backdoor listing in Yahoo for free with Audio blogs.


By submitting your audio blog to Yahoo audio search, your blog will get indexed by Yahoo search engine. This means your site or blog will now appear in Yahoo search results, helping to drive more traffic to your site.


Secondly, you can also submit your audio blogs to blogs and podcast directories. These are specialized directories that organize blogs and categorise them according to their topics. Listing your audio blog in these directories will expose your site directly to your intended target market.


Thirdly, you can also submit your audio blogs to iTunes directories. iPod remains one of the most popular mp3 devices in the market with strong following in US and overseas. The iTunes is an application that allows you to download, buy, organize

your music among other things. By submitting your audio blog to iTunes, you can gain access to tens of thousands of people who are searching for downloadable content in that topic.


Fourth, some people just prefer audios over plain text. With audio, you can listen to it on the go: in your car, in the gym, at the kitchen while cooking and so on.


In other words, audio will help you capture the segment of the market where articles or any written work does not work as well.


With all these benefits, online business owners should consider using setting up and running audio blogs to drive more traffic to their site. Is it hard to set up an audio blog? Actually, it’s easier than you think, especially if you are a member of AudioNicheBlogs

Brandon Hong is a leading internet marketer and author. He has helped and trained many business owners to grow their business using advanced strategies like blogs, rss as well as creating multiple passive online income streams. http://www.audionicheblogs.com
