I will not be back to your service. Your 'smilemaker' expert was rude, succinct, had no idea how to solve the problem and gave me a bad taste in my mouth. I have since identified the problem to be one of Direct X variety which is not working correctly in the register.

How do I upload a PowerPoint presentation to Youtube


You can't. Youtube only supports video formats. Instead use a screen recorder like camtasia studio (Its paid but its good) or fraps (Its free) to record the presentation on your screen and post the recorded video on Youtube. If you want you can narate through the ppt as you show the slides or add your voice or music later using camtasia studio.

How can i recorde?


You can record your screen or yourself like this:
to record yourself:
go to screenr.com (you need Java to run it and it is HD, but not really great).
Also you can use Camtasia Studio (which you have to pay for, but you can find many other free, good apps for recording the screen.

To record yourself from the webcam:
Find your webcam software on your computer, then click on it, after that you can either choose to record a video or clip show or just capture pictures of you.

Hope this helped, but if you are afraid of searching for recording software and because of that you can get viruses, just ask and I will find a perfect program excatly for your needs and PC.

How do i record video images to the scaleo p pc


If you're talking about recording your desktop then you need a third party program, there isn't software that comes on the computer that can do that. I use a program called Camtasia: You can get Camtasia here I haven't found a free one that I like, sorry. If you're not talking about recording your desktop I have no clue what you're asking.

VHS to Easy capture to computer


The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section. They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture. The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture. Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.

No colour when I record using the Dazzle DVD Recorder.


Get a program called amcap and you also need pinnacle studio first open pinnacle studio then go to capture then if your using 12 dv then open amcap an error will come up then go to options then video filter settings or something then where it says pal or ntsc change it to secam b then go to pinnacle studio and look at the preview, it is in color then when you start recording it goes black and white again so open amcap go to options then video capture filter then change secam to ntsc then apply then go to secam b again then it will be recording in color then you have to cut out the black and white in pinnacle studio or any other video editing program I use sony vegas pro 9 then search tutorials on the program but it is easy in any program really.

Memory Problems


The clip can be recovered if you open the temporary directory where Camtasia stores the raw captures in AVI format. The path to the temporary directory can be found by opening the Camtasia Recorder > Tools > Options > Program > Temporary file folder (I'm using v.5 so it may be a little different in other versions).

I've found that there's a certain workflow that seems to work best and you can avoid accidentally erasing your temporary files and having to start your capture session over from the beginning...

  1. Stop Camtasia Recorder - Pressing the Stop button on the Recorder likely won't work, so open the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) and select "CamRecorder.exe" from the Processes tab and click "End Process". Don't open Camtasia Studio right away after doing this step - You'll likely be prompted to recover the recording and in my experience Camtasia hasn't done a very good job at being able to do this successfully and you may end up losing your temp files.
  2. Recover your raw capture files - Navigate to the path where Camtasia stores its Temp files (look above for instructions). Typically, there will be a folder titled "CamCapture{random string of numbers/letters}" - look for a folder with a date modified attribute of the date/time you were working on your project. In that folder, there will likely be several audio and video files as well as an XML data file. The video files will all be 1GB apiece as Camtasia splits the capture into chunks and then pieces them back together to create one continuous file. Cut and paste the files from this folder into a new location outside of the Temp directory. The most important one is the FileWriter{random string}.avi as this is the pieced together file - It will have the largest file size.
  3. Add your media files to the clip bin/timeline - Start a new Camtasia project and import the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip into the Clip Bin and drag it onto the timeline. Now all of your video/audio should be recovered and available for you to edit. If you have particularly long clips, you may want to check how the audio syncs with the the video towards the end of the clip. If it's messed up at all, you may want to try adding the smaller, chunked recording segments sequentially onto the timeline to see if that helps. If the FileWrite{xxx}.avi clip is good though, you can delete all of the other smaller audio and video clips associated with the capture from your pc to save space - just keep the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip - the XML can be deleted too.
Good luck - We've had the same trouble here and we use Camtasia almost everyday. In my experience, this seems to happen more frequently when we capture larger dimensions - especially if the capture contains full motion video (as opposed to just screen captures of a product demo or something) and we always seem to have trouble when capturing things that play back FLV or SWF clips at a higher bitrate. This issue is also described in TechSmith's Camtasia knowledge base.

Nikon Coolpix P2 digital camera, can i use it as webcam?if yes please write me how can i d it, do i need any software for it.write me email on hellosajjad@gmail.com


We get this question alot. Not very many digital still cameras can actually be used as a webcam. This is mostly due to the lack of drivers for it. [url=http://esupport.sony.com/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=380&mdl=DSCS80]SONY does have a tutorial for using some of their models as a webcam[/url], but my question is, with focusing issues, why would you?

But for now, I don't think so. Better to try getting your camcorder to perform that function.

Or pick up the Creative's LiveCam Optica AF webcam.
Sensor: 2 megapixel sensor
Lens: High quality precision lens
Microphone: Built-in adaptive array microphones
Highest Still Image Resolution: 8 megapixels 3200 x 2400
Highest Video Resolution: 1600 x 1200
Focus: Auto
Interface: High-Speed USB 2.0 (bkwd compatible with USB 1.1)

$129.99

This will perform many of the functions you want in a webcam from a still camera and is designed as such.

The A520 (and I guess all Powershot cameras with RemoteShooting capability) can be used as a webcam. You only need a screen capture software, like Camtasia Recorder from the Camtasia Studio and Canon's own software, Camerawindow -> Remote shooting. You only need to start these programs, enable the Liveoutput option in the Camtasia Recorder, place the capture frame over the Remoteshooting window and start recording.
