I tested a software called Winavi 3.0. It contains many functions including convection between different media files , and it works very well by encoding from mov to mp4. Another software I want to mention is Plato Video 3.42. I spent alot time in installing and tried to play with it, but eventually I recognized that it crashed with Windows Vista and XP all the time, so I decided to uninstall it, and some of the others don’t work as well.

After testing different kinds of file type for vodcasting, I think the ideal file type for vodcasting is mpeg. It plays in most of the computer platforms and mpeg4 provides the smallest size ( In my above example : from 11Mbs of .mov to 5Mbs of .mp4) with the greatest quality. And we know that wma doesn’t support well in Macintosh; rm and m4a(.acc)won’t play if Realplayer doesn’t install, so my conclusion of universal format for podcasting is mp3.

On the other hand of finding an open sources for photos editing, I try to install a free add-in feature from Microsoft : Windows Photo Story 3, It is a new software for windows user to edit photo slide show and add music at this same time. I am very impressed that it has an easy-to-use interface and the software allows user to control the size of the file 🙂

Finally, I wish everyone of you have a wonderful spring break time!
