Re: [videoblogging] hello from Craige

glad Mica ( sent you over.
I have a Mac, but im bet half the people on this list have PC's.
someone will explain their process.
Andreas( said he was going to write up a HOW-TO-VIDEOBLOG
for PC's.

it's good for us to see how the process of vdieoblogging is difficult for
new people.
it is easy once you get it down with the different applications you got to
some of us are working on getting the act of videoblogging streamlined so
anyone could do it.

basically you got to:
1. record the video
2. edit(if you want to)
3. compress/optimize the video to web size(under 5MB)
4, then upload and post to your blog

so who has a PC and can help Craige do his first videoblog?
