Every Media Person Needs Screenflick

UPDATE: All this is old info. I now recommend Open Broadcaster

Screenflick

Part of my job is to get short videos together for the broadcast or the services or whatever else needs to be done in the studio. These videos always need to be in the highest quality possible too. So where might I get videos? This is the hard part: DVDs, YouTube, Vimeo, iChat or Skype, the list goes on forever! How do I keep all these videos in near-original quality? Screenflick.

Now, if I asked 20 people how they would get the videos off of the places I mentioned earlier, I would get 40 different answers! But which one of their answers would have been the same program for everything? Well, that’s why I was lucky a few years ago to find Screenflick! Screenflick is a good program that captures your screen. Sure, there are a dozen other screen capturing utilities out there also. But why did I go with Screenflick? That was a hard decision!

Features:

  • Up to 60fps recording
  • Records System Audio and Mic-in
  • Record multiple screens
  • Record only portions of the screen
  • Records in the “Animation” codec, which is amazing!
  • Exports your video to any codec from within the application!

I only listed a few of the features I love in the application. There are tons more to make Screenflick worth the price!

@nickvegas CrossProcess iPhone App Review

I’m not much of a photographer. And I will rarely take pictures much less also then post them somewhere. So naturally I will not be the guy with any kind of picture editing application on my iPhone.

However, (and that is a BIG “however”) I am one of those people who likes almost everything Nick Campbell, aka “Gorilla” does. Also I was needing something to play with on my new iPhone 4 to see how good the pictures really are. Therefore I remembered seeing the CrossProcess App.

App: “CrossProcess”

Website: http://www.crossprocessapp.com/

Price: $0.99

For the price this app is one of those good deals. It could easily be selling for $1.99 or $1.99! But it is simple and easy to use. I can’t explain what it does better than just showing you some of the test pictures I have taken.

Finally Free WiFi at Starbucks

Finally free wifi at Starbucks!
I know it started over a month ago, but I am just now publishing this article because at first I couldn’t believe what they were finally it giving away. But going to Starbucks is now much more enjoyable. It may have taken McDonald’s getting free Internet first, along with their cheaper coffee, but wifi should be free. Especially if the coffee costs $5!
