Radio Vague and Flash

A very strange thing has happened.

Radio Vague, a longterm supporter of open source, have made the following statement about broadcast from Glastonbury this weekend-

"To listen in you'll need nothing more than Flash Player version 7 or higher, available from Adobe."

I wait to see if this is true. I have now managed to get Ogg Vorbis working and VLC seems ok. So something as simple as Flash seems too obvious. I hope the bandwidth can cope now this is not something just for the dedicated techies who can persevere.

I am not making this up. I first discovered Open Office when Psand refused to send me a Word file.

More on Remixer

Look for "Remixer" on Youtube.

Presumably you can load up anything, then select what to include.

The full Ann Shelton extract is here.

YouTube video edit test

The Adobe online video edit option reaches YouTube, I have tried this out.

Seems to be missing the last bit. Tests from a lunchtime lecture on electronics during Vibraphonic and the food festivities of Sidwell Street. More next weekend but maybe you only get sausages in the winter.

Meanwhile Ubuntu turns up on YouTube

Not sure what is happening with the project discussed at Sundown for intros on Ubuntu but a short video has turned up on YouTube made by a librarian. As promotion it is fairly convincing, making simple points well.

one special effect towards the end.
