Session Call Outs - Below are tips from the session participants

(They reminded me of some great tips to share!)

Use RealPlayer files in SMART Notebook
- Caveat this makes large files

Use the Mozilla Firefox Plugin called YouTube Downloader to download videos.

Picasa - Upload videos and convert or shrink image files

Zamzar - Read carefully when downloading videos to make sure you click the right thing.

Safety Mode in YouTube - Turn on to hide comments and filter some content.

YouTube - Music Replacement feature available when you upload a video or need to change the music in an uploaded video
- Whatever sound is replaced is lost

AnyVideoConverter - If you have old version do not update because the update will cause it to not to convert the complete video.

My notes from this session:

You tube math channels
You tube channels- anyone can have a channel if they have a gmail account.
XoaX. Net math lessons
Filtering YouTube. - some districts have
access to YouTube. You tube reviews around good content is an issue.
Ideas for filtering:
- freeze image on projector screen
- launch video in full screen mode
- create own YouTube channel with your favorites on your site. Comments are controlled. upload kids' content or your content to your channel.
Clean iboss search? Does not mean safe- filter did not work at times.
VuSafe- free but some ads, have to login. Search for YouTube vids by keyword, etc.
WatchKnowLearn- wiki and directory- free!
Neo k-12- free - directory of movies, games, lessons, etc. lots of extras.
Saving, trimming, converting you tube videos:
Save and convert videos with Zamzar.
Converts PDFs to word
Kick you tube- previously used
Real player- pc way to save videos
keepvid works great for us in Decatur City!
Debut- for more tech savvy folks.
Trimming and converting:
you tube has own video editor
apple - .mov
windows .wmv
realplayer- if you download in realplayer then you can play and trim and add to realplayer library
.avi - large container type file and may not play in some software
.wmv - microsoft format that is highly compressed - works best in microsoft prod
.mov- apple quicktime format smaller than avi better than wmv
flv- flash- smaller format still good looking
best online video converter left
realPlayer- mp4a to mp3, lots of options
winFF- ends conversion w strange screen but works
video players: possibly in PC World:
VLC Player
KM Player
Real Player
Quick Time
school tube- better quality
teacher tube
brightstorm (lots of math)
google videos
in you tube, in your account, recommended tools pop up when you click create videos
animoto- free version is great - fast and easy with copyright free music- easy to embed and share in websites
