Web Page VIDEO Tutorial
Adding Video to your Webpages

computer     This lesson will assume that you have studied HTML at one or more of our recommended Design Sites and here we will show you how to create and add Video to your webpages!

    There are three parts to this tutorial... (1) How to actually create a Video (2) How to upload it to your PC and (3) How to code your webpage to show the Video...

Part 1: How to Create a Video

movies    You need a Camera to make a Video, and Camcorders are the best choice... there are TWO Basic types of Camcorders... Digital or Analog, either will work, and Analog Camcorders are cheaper, but they are being replaced with newer Digital Units. When you shoot your Video, you must keep the length as short as possible, because the File Size can become quite LARGE for lengthy Videos, and users on a 56K Dial-Up Connection, might not wait forever for them to load! A good rule of thumb is: For every 30 seconds of footage, the file size will increase by 3 Megabytes! In the case of an Analog Camcorder, make sure that it has Audio and Video output jacks, and for Digital Camcorders, we recommend units with Hard Drives, using standard USB Cable wires!

Part 2: How to Upload your Video Movie to your Windows OS PC

movies    For Hard Drive Digital Camcorders you will need a USB Cable and video capture software, both of which usually come with the purchase of a new Hard Drive Digital Camcorder...

camera This tutorial will concentrate on Digital Hard Drive Camcorders, using the JVC Everio GZ-MG330 Camera...

    This Camera comes with all the necessary Software needed to capture and edit your video, so go ahead and upload it to your PC...

    There are also many Video Editing Software Programs available today... you can look at www.Download.com and see what's available... and your Windows Based PC probably comes with one pre-installed, Windows Live Movie Maker if you are using Windows 7 (Operating System)... and if you are using Windows 7 and you do not have the Movie Maker installed, you can
Download It Here... so you can go ahead and use it if you want... study the "Help" sections and capture your video, edit it and save it to your computer... Here is an Excellent Tutorial On Windows Live Movie Maker ... we recommend that you use Windows Live Movie Maker to do your Video Capture and Editing work, but the choice is up to you...

    So after you shoot your Video, follow the Everio Camera Instructions to Upload it to your PC, and we recommend doing it WITHOUT using the Everio software, and simply clicking "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer" when the window below opens after you connect your USB Cable and choose "Playback on PC" from the Everio Camera...

Video Screen

    On the next window that opens after you click "OK", choose "SD VIDEO", then choose "PRG002" and next you'll find your Video File, something like "MOV001.MOD" .... now go ahead and right click it and choose Copy (Or Cut) and goto your regular Folder for Videos and PASTE it there.... now you can turn OFF your Camera, disconnect the USB Cable and get ready to Edit your Video using the Software of your choice... BUT WAIT... the current file type of ".MOD" is NOT viewable on Windows Media Player nor is it Editable using Windows Live Movie Maker... here is an Excellent Free Program to convert File Formats to any other one of your choice, just Download It... so that you can use it for whatever Editing Program or Movie Player that you like! However we now STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you convert the file first to .wmv ... so that you can use Windows Live Movie Maker for editing...

    After you have changed the file type to ".wmv" and used your Video Editing Program (we recommend Windows Live Movie Maker) to Edit and save the new Video to your PC, we Recommend that you use the above conversion web site (Format Factory) to convert it again to FLASH... that is to .flv format and then continue on to Part 3 of this Tutorial...
