Tonight’s Second Video Worth Sharing: Screen Captures Not Full Size? Add Some Borders!

By Tim

Tonight we have a short tutorial on Openshot and The Gimp. Sometimes your screen capture program will not output the size you would like. Many times it will use the resolution of your monitor and not the exact size that is ideal.

The GPU generally uses the res provided to the monitor and therefore you may end up with some strange sizes as I do with 1152 x 720 being the output.

Of course when editing the video everything ends up restricted by this size limitation and you end up with some black bars on either side of the video.

This video describes how to get rid of those black bars with a simple background image with the actual video size made transparent inside the background image.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Openshot Handbrake h264 Versus h265

By Tim

This video is a sort of follow up to my previous video where I was playing around shooting in 1080p and then compressing a rather huge file down to a much more manageable size. This one covers Openshot and Handbrake as I compare a very short video clip encoded with first h.264 and then h.265. I apologize for the overlapping audio when I was comparing the 2 versions near the end.

This video after editing was 442 MB in size. That makes for a long upload, so I used Handbrake and reduced it to a mere 34.2 MB with no loss of quality at all!

Handbrake is a free Open Source encoder that can reduce video files by as much as 10 times smaller! It is available for  Mac, Windows and Linux.

So let us get right to that video and make sure to visit the channel and like, share and subscribe!

This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing: MX6453 Follow Up, Yes You Can Use it For Video Editing!

By Tim

Today, well actually yesterday, I learned that an AMD Turion X2 64 processor can be quite powerful! I did not bring my tablet PC to work for the short morning and therefore I was using the MX6453 that I had installed Linux on a short time ago.

So I decided to see what I could truly do with this dinosaur…

Yeah, I was blown away with the fact this thing still could run Openshot and run Blender! So, yes, it does do video editing. WOW!

Bottom line here folks, if you have a laptop laying about the house and it has a 64 bit CPU, get Linux on it! Face it, it is the far superior platform versus handing your child an iPad/smartphone which they will drop, spill soda on, etc.

Below is the video I shot this evening, but the wireframe logo/intro for work was created on the 13 year old Gateway MX 6453 laptop in Linux.

Today’s Early Morning Video Worth Sharing: Yes You CAN Edit Videos on Older Processor Powered Devices!

By Tim

If you watch a lot of tech reviews like I do you will constantly hear that you can’t do this or that with the latest lower end phone/notebook/tablet, when in truth, you probably can!

When folks tell you that you can’t do something, your first response should always be…bullshit! We are trained by the media and YouTube in the tech world to believe that we must have the latest tech at all times and that t should look pretty and it will do everything under the sun!

The truth is that tech from 3 years ago will get the job done, you do not need apps/programs that cost a bundle, but will will need to be patient because everything might take an extra bit of time!

Can’t is always what folks say when they are already planning to fail. It is an unacceptable word if you are willing to learn and tweak and figure out how to bypass the barriers put in front of you and also to ignore the hype when it comes to tech related stuff.

Never give up and never surrender to the fail word “can’t”. I have been trying for weeks to add a simple into logo to the videos I do for our new channel here and I finally, after deciding that I can, figured it out after 10 hours this even/morning!

The video below only took a few minutes to record and edit, but the little short 10 second clip at the front was the issue all along! That took 10 hours to get right and it still is not perfect, but our videos are getting a bit better each and everyday.

So watch the video below, never give up and leave a comment and share the video and never give up!
