Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: A Short Tutorial On Handbrake- Compress Those Video Files!

By Tim

This video has a very short, basic tutorial on Handbrake, a free program I have been using for a long time. It works great and there really isn’t a major loss in quality of sound or video.

In fact if you are watching on a smartphone you simply won’t see any difference. The bonus of course is that this is free software folks! At least try it!

Links mentioned in the video:

Where to find Handbrake: https://handbrake.fr/

The video being shown below was reduced from 403 MB in size down to a mere 38 MB in size! So make sure you check out the link above!

If you need to save on some bandwidth usage, this might be the way to go!

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.

So let us get right to the video!

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Tutorial-IP Addresses and MAC Addresses

By Tim

I got a question from a friend today about someone stealing their IP. So after spending a few minutes describing what IP’s are, that gave me the idea to do a quick tutorial on IPs and MAC addresses.

Okay, I droned on a bit long, but hopefully you will be able to get some knowledge of the basics of IP addresses/MAC addresses.

The basics are as follows:

  • Your External IP address: usually the IP of your cable modem
  • Your Internal IP address: the actual IP of your phone/tablet/PC which the router provides.
  • Your MAC address: the actual alpha numeric unique identifier of the WiFi or ethernet chip within your PC/Tablet/phone/router

The MAC address is how your router knows your device and how it assigns IP addresses, whether they be permanent or dynamic (leased).

So let us proceed to the video right now and maybe learn something!
