Your Pictures library should contain a Camera Roll folder where these images and videos are stored.

This assumes you're going for an archive rather than regular backup or live data. Go for a set of SATA hard drives (1 or 2 TB), plus a few extras. Copy your data onto the disks. Use QuickPar (or an archiver which support parity volumes) to create additional parity files. Distribute parity files among your hard disks. The parity info will allow you to ...

The LTO4 drives we use can cram in 800GB per tape. The downside is the cost of the drives themselves. If you balked at the $5K for Blu-Ray disks, you're not going to like the cost of LTO4. On the other hand, the cartages themselves are pretty cheap on a per-GB basis so you can keep a lot of copies. These tapes have a good shelf-life, but you do need to plan ...

EDIT: These instructions apply for VirtualDub v1.8.11 and VLC v1.1.9. VirtualDub is definitely the correct choice of program for AVI files. I'll walk you through it. Run VirtualDub by going to the folder where you saved it and running VirtualDub.exe. Head to File > Open Video File, and select the AVI file from the file browser, and select Open. Next, go ...

I believe it's this directory: C:\Users\(your user)\Pictures\Camera Roll

Recent ffmpeg can be compiled with support for reading files off various Internet streaming platforms directly, namely with libquvi. Step 1 – Install libquvi Linux: Download the source, and install according to the instructions. Your distro might have packages, e.g. here's one in Ubuntu. Via apt-get: sudo apt-get install -y libquvi* You need all of ...

Yes there is. To bring up the tool that is built into Expression, go to Window and click on "Summary" to check it. You can also estimate it yourself using one of the formulae you can read about here: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/299571-How-to-calculate-size-of-video-file-after-encoding

Try CamStudio. It's free and open source. CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs).

I've seen lots of people recommending Deshaker Its a plugin for the FOSS (free in more ways than price) program VirtualDub. It was used to create the example on WikiPedia's article on digital video stabilisation

What you need (for both mac and PC) is a VGA Capture Card or also known as a Frame Grabber. High end ones that can do 30fps+ at 1920x1200 are not cheap ($800+) but if you are willing to go to a lower resolution or be willing to do lower fps it can bring the price down a lot. If you can get a signal like HDMI or Component from your projector it actually ...

Try using a lossless encoder to capture the screen, and then re-encode the output when you are finished to create a smaller file if desired. The advantage of this method is often a less intensive capturing process which can result in a "faster" capture frame rate. Of course results can vary. ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 1280x800 -i :0.0 -c:v libx264 -preset ...

If you record it to DVD with your DVD recorder and be sure to finalize the disc when it's done (many recorders require this step, but not all), then you should be able to take it to your computer and rip the video from the DVD with any video editing or capture software. That would be the easiest. In order to copy it straight from the camcorder to your ...

Thanks to Xantec's comments, I was able to get VirtualDub working. To get the EzCap 116 device to play in VirtualDub, you should download the latest version of the program. Start the program, then: Go into File > Capture AVI... If no video plays, go into Devices > WDM 2861 Capture if that is already selected, then go to Video > Video sources and select ...

If you're familiar with .NET/IL Sourcecode: Locate the Silverlight .xap file and save it to your computer. Change the extension from .xap to .zip and open it. You'll find one or more Dlls. Take them, starting with the one looking like it's just for that Silverlight application. (You can probably skip thirdparty ones.) Disassemble that Dll with IL DASM or ...

Camtasia is a great software for this, it is not free but there is a 30 day trial. Camstudio is not as polished, but an open source, and free software to use.

In your NAS research, have you looked at the DroboPro or DroboElite self-managed storage devices? Consider what the cost would be if you lost some/all of your footage and budget accordingly ;)

Apparently the Syntek STK1150 is used in EasyCap devices. I have found a few links on the internet for Windows 7 x64 drivers: MediaFire MegaUpload It looks like EasyCap doesn't provide very much direct support for these devices.

I use three different software packages for screen recording, depending on the specific task I'm trying to accomplish. Jing Jing is free, but not open source. It lets you select either a specific window, an area of your screen, or the entire screen, and then records. It can also take still shots. You have the choice of uploading screenshots and screencasts ...

If you look at the HTML source of the page, the embedded JS shows a URI for an XML file: // FLASH VARS var flashvars = {}; flashvars.language = 'en'; flashvars.xmlPath = '/sites/default/files/xml/'; flashvars.appXMLPath = 'app.xml'; flashvars.name = name; flashvars.ga = 'UA-6548511-7'; // DO NOTCHANGE // FLASH ...

JMF is old and pretty much abandoned but its libraries are still available for download and fully functional. Yes, you can use the JMF-based freeware called krut. It runs fine on Windows 7 64-bit (I haven't tested it on other machines). You select the area of the screen you want to capture and the program dumps the pixels into a list of jpeg frames and ...

Because you're dealing with analog signals, it depends on many factors: source quality (e.g. VHS recording) sending device - internal quality and connector quality cable shielding & quality external RF interference receiving device - internal quality and connector quality Generally, S-video would be your best bet, seconded by RCA (composite). Be ...

I can understand that loading new content etc. would slow down while recording, because the HDD is busy writing data This is exactly what is happening with screen recording software. You are capturing often up to 30 files of (likely) uncompressed image data every second. 30 large files depending on resolution and color space settings (1366 X 768 = ...

If realplayer doesn't capture it: Realplayer One Click Video Downloader You can always film your screen using software like fraps and bandicam (both .com for their respective sites. I can't make more URLs as my reputation is too low). And if necessary, edit the video by cutting out the essential. I found this actually to be the easiest method if you count ...

The .f4m extention indicates usage of the Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) technology. With HDS, the original MP4 or FLV file is split up into many F4F segments, which are then served to the media player on the page one after the other, so there is no single video file to download like with most other video streaming technologies. It is easy to download ...

zoneminder I believe this is OSS, and should do the job. It's pretty well known and a beefy solution.

I also get stuck with this problem and find solution, and maybe it would help anyone in future. You just need to open regedit and find "Realtek" (or any other part of device name), one of the results would be like on the screenshot below. Just open "FriendlyName" parameter and rename your device as you wish. Screenshot:
