There are times where in you recorded a video and when you post it on YoutUbe or anywhere in the internet, you'll see a black bar on it. Black bars take some space in the screen making your video look smaller. How can you remove these bars with great ease? I personally use the ApowerEdit tool whenever I face this kind of problem or whenever I want to edit a video file.
Removing black bar with ApowerEdit
Apower Edit is a desktop application which is designed to edit videos. This allows you to crop, split, add effects, text and watermark on a video. Moreover, removing the black bar from a video can also be done. Here is how you can do it.:
Step 1: Download and install the application on your computer.
Step 2: Launch it and then click the "import" button to import the file that you will edit.
Step 3: Drag the file into the timeline. On the timeline, click the crop icon and crop it to remove the black bar.
Step 4: Click "OK" and the click on "Export" to save the file on your computer.
You may now enjoy your video without black bar on the screen. You may also use this app on some other editings that you may want to do on a video file.
That is completely normal. Most Youtube Videos are posted in a 4:3 Letterbox Format. If it was filmed or uploaded in a 16:9 Widescreen format you would not see those bars. Try this HD Widescreen Format video link and let me know if the bars are gone: http://youtu.be/yZgcjOJnk0k
Most likely the pop sound was the loss of your lamp module, due to normal burnout, causing immediate loss of video without affecting audio. You'll want to do an internet search to price a new lamp for your projection TV.
Instructions for uploading a video to YouTubeTo get started,
the first thing you should do is click on the "Upload Videos" icon in
the upper right corner of the YouTube home page:
Click on 'Upload Videos'
Login if you already have an account. If you don't, you'll need to complete and submit the sign-up form to create one:
Create your YouTube account
Describe your video Once you've
registered, you'll be able to begin the two-step video upload process.
First, you'll need to provide some information about the video you're
Provide information about your video
You'll want to include relevant keywords in
your title, description and "tags" that people will use when searching
YouTube for video content. For example, if you're uploading a video
snare drum lesson, be sure to include potential search words such as
"drums, lessons, snare, music," etc. Keep in mind, that YouTube
video pages appear in Google's search results. So it's possible that
someone searching for "drum lessons" on Google will stumble upon your
video drum lesson on YouTube without actually searching YouTube
directly. Select the appropriate category and language for your
video, and press the "Go upload a file" button. The alternative "Use
Quick Capture" button would allow you to record a YouTube video
instantly via a camera connected to your computer. (We'll go over this
option in a future tutorial.) Public or Private? On the next page, you'll be able to upload your video file and specify the privacy settings (public or private):
Make your videos private or availabe to the public
If you'd like to only select people you
invite to be able to view your videos, choose "Private." Otherwise, if
you'd like anyone in the world to be able to view your videos, you
should select the "Public" option.
YouTube video requirements and recommendationsYouTube
accepts video files from most newer digital cameras, camcorders, and
cell phones in either an .AVI, .MOV, or .MPG file format. According to
their site, videos saved with the following settings convert and display
(Note to WVZ Members: Be sure to review the tutorial on how to get the best results when uploading videos to YouTube.) There
is no limit to the number of videos you can upload, but there is a file
size limit of 100MB for "Standard" account members. Videos can be up to 10 minutes long. If you have a Director's Account,
you can upload longer videos. The YouTube Director program is
especially for musicians, amateur filmmakers, videobloggers, or
upload your video, press the "Browse" button to locate the video file
on your computer and then press the "Upload Video" button:
Uploading your video to YouTube
The amount of time required to upload a
video depends upon your internet connection speed and the size of the
video you're uploading. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to
several hours. According to YouTube, for users with a high-speed
broadband internet connection, the upload time is usually in the range
of 1-5 minutes per MB (e.g., a 10MB file would take 10-50 minutes to
upload). Once you're video has been uploaded, YouTube will automatically convert it to the Flash video FLV format for use in the YouTube FLV player. This usually takes just a few minutes. Your video should be live shortly thereafter.
If this is the first time that you are trying to do this, this is most probably an issue with the video codec. If you are using windows media player to play the you tube downloaded video you download and install video code.
Here's a link of the video codec that I'm using and it works perfect. http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm
Hope that woks for you. I'll appreciate the feedback. Thanks. -Fixya -jash
