  • Anonymous Apr 20, 2009


    I'm running Mac OSX 10.5.6. When I connect the DCR-SX40 to my Mac via a USB cable, I can view the movie files (.mpg), and drag and drop (copy) the files to my Mac. But there is no sound. I have also tried a third party card reader with the same results. I have verified on the camera that the sound was recorded.


    Why is the Mac not recognizing the sound on the files, and how do I fix this?


    Thanks

After a good amount of time on a chat with Sony support, it seems that the only solution to this is to use iMovie to import the files directly from the camera. Once imported, they will be .mov files which you can then do whatever you want with them.
Hope this helps.

I dont know how too broadcast myself


How To Broadcast Yourself On Youtube Making and sharing your own videos, sounds exciting doesn't it? However, before making plans for your next online video, you are advised to think about how the process works. This is important because it will let you know what type of equipment you will need to get started.

Before uploading and sharing you newly created online video, you will first have to shoot it. To do this, you will need video recording equipment. Video recording equipment can include camcorders, webcams, cell phones, and some digital cameras have the ability to record a few minuets of video. If you are looking to produce a quality video, you may want to think about using a camcorder or a webcam. Cell phones and digital cameras will work, but many only provide you with a limited amount of recording time and you will need a steady hand. In addition to a limited amount of time, not all digital cameras and cell phones will record sounds, although audio or commentary can be added in later.

Once you have created your online video, you will need to find a way to get it to your computer. Most recording devices, including camcorders, webcams, digital cameras, and cell phones will come with the necessary equipment. Once you hook your recording device up to your computer, your video should begin to load. However, for this to be done you will need to have movie making software installed on your computer.

When it comes to movie making software, you will likely find that your computer already has a program on it. Most computers, especially ones made within the last few years, have the software programs preinstalled. If your video does not automatically load, once your recording device is hooked up to your computer, it may be a sign that your computer does not have a movie making program. If this is the case, you will need to purchase some. Movie making software programs which can easily be purchased online or from a wide variety of different retail stores.

Once your video has been loaded onto your computers hard drive and recognized by movie making software, you have a number of different options. If you are satisfied with your video, as it is, you can save it and then move on. If you would like to make alterations, now would be the time to do so. Depending on the type of movie making software you have, you should easily be able to edit your video. This editing may include, but should not be limited to, deleting scenes, adding captions, and the adding of music. Once you have made all of your edits, you will need to save your movie.

The final step to making an online movie is to find an online video website that you can upload your video to. One of the most popular online video websites is YouTube.com. Simply click on upload, you will have to sign in and join by entering your details. After you follow the directions, provided by Youtube, your video will be displayed for the rest of the world to see.

Quick Summary

Record a short clip using your camcorder or if you have a digital camera with recording features, you can even use your mobile phone, but you need a steady hand. When you have finished, simply download your movie to your computer.

Now you need to convert your recording into a YouTube format, for this Apple Mac's QuickTime Pro is ideal and it's quite cheap to buy. When you have finished editing all that's left for you to do, is save your movie in MPEG4 and upload it to Youtube. Congratulations you have just learnt - How to Broadcast Yourself on YouTube [http://www.broadcastyourselfyoutube.com].

System Requirements, Windows 2000 or XP, 233 MHz Intel Pentium class or better processor, and at least 128MB of RAM Editing software some thing such as QuickTime Pro will do the job, there are many others.

I want to record Turner Classic Movies from my cable to a dvd. I then want to edit out parts I don't want. Some movies are good but have just a few scenes that are not appropriate for family viewing....


The dvd recorder will not automatically edit out parts you don't want to see....the easiest way is to watch the movie live and if you know the part you don't want to record, press pause during the part and resume when it's done. Otherwise you will have to load the whole movie from dvd to your computer, get an editing software and cut out the scenes you don't want. There are lots of these simple programs on the market and some are even free.
Quickest way is to watch it real time and push pause on the objectionable parts.
Hope this helps.

I have a seagate 300gb external h/drive plugged into my mac book pro but cannot seem to play movies on mac book from external..help!!


You didn't say how you are connecting the drive. with a MBP you should be able to play the movies if the drive transfer speed is enough. Try moving the movie onto the desktop and playing it, if that works, then it's a transfer speed problem. If not, then you probably need the right piece of software to run it. I'd try VLC which is an open source player that takes almost any content type.

You will need to get some third party software, the good news is it's FREE. Check out www.squared5.com and look for MPEG Streamclip 1.9 or later. I did this and all good now, my movies go straight into iMovie without a problem.
