What is this?

Here is a video of Nona in our catarium (a very large outdoor enclosure.) She is excited I came to visit and photograph her in the catarium. You can see how she's rubbing and rolling around. You can see Nona has her winter coat and is slightly chubby. She weighs 8 pounds and is the smallest cat in our house.

It's my "gotta have fun while experimenting" website. And the truth is, I DO have a pure breed Nebelung cat.
I highly recommend that YOU create your fun video website because....


  FORGET INSURANCE! -- Get Affordable Health CARE!
If you're one of the 45 million uninsured Americans then I have some great news for you. There ARE alternatives to health insurance. But first I want to put in perspective just how many Americans 45 million is.

*40 million(2000) to 45 million(2003) in 3 years
*20 million more than the population of Iraq
*4 million more than all US small business employees
*7,500 uninsured Americans per US hospital
*15.6% of total American population

I have never believed in health insurance replacing monthly health expenses. Nor do I believe that businesses should be responsible for our health care unless they damage our health. So when I heard about my friend's side business of selling affordable health CARE, I wanted to share this news with you. Besides, the sales page is a great example of how to use informative fast-paced videos in a business setting.

  WHY FLASH VIDEO IS HERE TO STAY: How the Ruling Flash Trickled Down to 'Free for All'
Why should anyone choose to deliver video on the web in Flash Video format? Why not Quicktime, Windows Media Video or even mpeg4? Because Flash Video is the most easily viewable video format on the web today. Many experts even state that Flash Video is accessible to 98% of all web users. Check out this chart's "viewability" comparison found on Adobe - Macromedia website.

Most professional video content on the web is being delivered with streaming Flash Video (flv). Flash Video with the ".flv" extension is known for having the best compression to file size ratios. FLV video looks the best AND it's file sizes are much smaller than competing video formats. FLV files can be delivered as streaming videos or as progressive downloads.

If you're like many video consumers you may think the additional cost of Flash Video conversion software coupled with a Flash web delivery mechanism (ie: video hosting) is out of your reach. But you're wrong. I'm going to show you two complete Flash Video solutions that convert and deliver your videos at no cost!


I recently discovered two viral video 'buffets' that encourage you to email links to their videos, and one gives you the link to download them and host them yourself. This 'all-you-can-download attitude' is a great solution for many of us who are tired of sharing the same "files and codes" that are used by thousands of other people. This massive 'video code sharing' often results in slow to no-start video files on our webpages! This video delay effect more often occurs when using the most popular video code sharing websites.

I have the win-win-win solution...but first, watch this short viral video. Click image to start:


Is this for real? How on earth did the person do it?

Now that you've seen it, is this real or video magic?


  RIPPLE TRAINING (Free Final Cut Pro Training)
If you edit on a Mac with Final Cut Pro, then you may be interested in knowing about Ripple Training. Ripple Training has tutorials for sale, but also has free tutorials here.

How can anyone find you if your viral videos are not tagged with your web address? How many times do I go video surfing and I cannot locate the source of the videos I want to vlog about? Too many times! So, dang it, tag your videos already!

I may want to give you credit, link to your website, or generate free publicity for you by writing an article about you, or I might just want to ask your permission to share your video in a remix video project.

Below are a two examples of video tags:


What do you see? Do you see a promo for a horror film or a family comedy?

Click the image to play QuickTime movie:

The footage is the same. Footage from a horror film now voices itself as a comedy. How did this happen? How is it that the same facial expressions have one meaning in one context and yet another meaning when placed in a new context? Did the facial expressions and voice tones change? Or did our perception of them change?


  Generate FREE VIDEO HTML CODES for YOUR WEBSITES, BLOGS, and SERVICES (MySpace, Friendster, etc.)
What's Video Coding? Well, it makes your video html code automatically for you. Do you want an embed? Text link? Image-link to embedded player? This does it all for you and more. This resource website is best for users who host their own videos but some video hosting services also work with it.

1-- We've just included FLV capability--just upload FLV files to your domain and use our code to embed, link or link to an embed(my favorite). And it works like this:

Outrageous and Contagious: Viral Video
Thursday, November 17 @ 11/10c

"These days, who can escape the stream of emails featuring men dancing around their living rooms in chicken suits or Chinese students singing to "The Backstreet Boys" from their dorm room? They're funny, smart, addictive — and they're spreading.


Just released hours ago...a free web-based Flash (FLV) compression website. It will convert all video file formats (mov, wmv, mpeg, swf, rm, etc) into one hugely popular web video format, Flash FLV.

The conversions to FLV video files are done online and there is no need to buy or install any software for video files under 20MB. There are no compression settings to tweak, just three simple steps:

1--Browse and upload
3--save file to desktop (right-click)
