Paggr screencast: Conference Explorer (proto)

Prototype screencast of a semantic conference explorer for ESWC 2009.
I just returned from a short, doc-enforced trip to Nice (awesome place, savoir-vivre and all that) and will fly to the NYC SemWeb Meetup in a few days. Before we went to France, I created another Paggr screencast. This one is the first to show the (user-facing) dashboard and widgets we plan to make available as a semantic conference explorer at ESWC 2009. Still some way to go, but I'm optimistic that we'll have a number of handy helpers online by the beginning of the event. I won't be able to attend in person, so I'm highly motivated to have at least a twitter and twitpic tracker up and running then.

My first screencast

Tools used for a screencast about forthcoming paggr collector.
I created my first screencast this weekend, oh dear ;-)

I didn't really have a lot to talk about yet (I plan to do some screencasts for the paggr system), so this one was more for testing a number of different tools (the screencast itself is about paggr's soon-polymorphic drag and drop). I used a Windows box and found the following tools quite useful:
  • CamStudio for screen and audio recording,
  • a Magix tool (commercial, I assume there are alternatives) to cut and create an mpeg version from the CamStudio avi,
  • SUPER for converting the mpg file to the Flash video (flv) format,
  • and a free FLV player I found on the web somewhere. It hopefully isn't doing evil things on my server now..

The tools make the technical side of things rather convenient, but it still was more work than expected, and I sound just horrible (sometimes close to "zank you for traffeling wiz Deutsche Bahn", if you know what I mean).
