Default A Question About Video

I'm wondering if video created with old technology can be posted to the web and how to do it along with creating a link to the file on the forum. By old technology, I'm referring to AVI files and photos being acquired on DV tape. I have a Canon XL I camera and edit with Adobe 6.5. This worked well in the past but the current technology has out dated my equipment. I'd like to post some of my ideas in the form of video it there is a way to accomplish it.

There's a list of the supported file formats when you go to upload files Jerry. You have to be able to save a copy of the file in one of those formats. I don't remember all of the ones that there.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

A Canon XL1 is a great camera. It would not be outdated by "current" technology.

It just depends on what output cables you have on the canon XL1 and what video editing software to use.

I have a "Dazzle " video importer and then edit with Pinnacle Studio 14.

Dazzle Video Creator Platinum HD - Video Capture Device

My previous video camera was a Canon MVX150i and I have published a couple of videos on Youtube.

At this point in time, you cannot upload video to the forum, but this was being investigated.

James,
I think that I said that my editing program is Adobe 6.5. I have assumed that after doing the editing that one needs to reduce the work to a single file and burn that file to a DVD and somehow upload it to the web. After the file is burned to a DVD is where my knowledge ends.

I am not sure about Adobe 6.5.

Is this a Video editing program?

I did see that you used Adobe 6.5, I was just letting you know what I used and I have successfully loaded VHS and Mini DV tapes from the camera and VHS tape player into the computer, edited the video, created a MP4 or AVI movie and sent to youtube.

This is what the video editing program does for you.

How do you get the video files from your camera into the PC?


You can add video clips or still photos.

Two popular, consumer level programs are
Pinnacle Studio
Sony Movie studio?
Movie Studio 13 Platinum Overview

If you need any more help, send me a PM.....

I am no expert, but like you, I use a method that works for me.......

Jerry, I think you can skip the DVD part, if you're going to post to the web. A popular file format these days is MPEG4 (.mp4). DVDs have menus and stuff that isn't necessary for the web.

Adobe has many products, I assume you are referring to Adobe Premier? If so I would think that it should export h.264 mp4 files.

Here's a youtube page that discusses encoding settings: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171
