Converting “Go to Webinar” video to MP4 and WMV with Expression Encoder 4

Here’s the description and videos of how to do it step by step – it took me over 20 hours of experimenting before I got it right. Let’s start from the beginning.

The task:

  • Converting a webinar recording into a video that will play on a website (we’re talking video streaming here).

Problems:

  • Go2webinar videos will not play on a website and cannot be read properly by most video editing software – an error will be generated during video encoding (I have tested Freemake Video Converter, Camtasia, Any Video Converter, Power Director and a few others and they all could not handle G2W video encoding or failed to make a video that would play properly on a website).
  • WMV are not the best format for websites – will not be played unless your browser has a plug-in that supports WMV.
  • Most video converters (the above mentioned) will not produce MP4 optimized for streaming

What’s needed:

  • The webinar video converted into MP4 file encoded with H264 and optimized for websites (MPEG 4 codec can also be used, but H264 is much better).

Solution:

  1. Import Go2webinar recording into Expression Encoder 4 (that’s the version I tested).
  2. Encode it into MP4 (if you have the full version) and you’re done, or encode into WMV (if you have the free version).
  3. Encode the WMV video into MP4 using AVS video converter or any other software.

Alternative solution:

  1. Do step 1 and 2 above.
  2. Upload to YouTube or another service that converts videos, and then download the file they create or embed it in your website. The problem is that YouTube does not allow videos longer than 15 minutes, unless you have a “special” account.

Challenge:

  • Using the right settings for conversion.
  • Finding a program that will produce MP4 that will play correctly on a website. Most of the programs that I tested failed this test – they produced a video that only played when almost fully downloaded from the website- that defeats the whole conveniece of having the video online – if it’s a large video you need to wait for too long to download the video and you even don’t know if this will work until it starts playing, which can take a long time.
  • Putting it all together the way that serves your purpose

How To Clone A WordPress Blog to another domain or URL

I created a blog for one of our customers, and I wanted to clone it to 2 other domains. I have spent the whole day creating and customizing it, so there was no way I was going to do it again. The first thing I did, of course, was to google it. I have spent 2 hours researching it and I was not happy with what I found: either not clear, or too complicated, or you had to pay for some software.

I decided to use two plugins:

  1. Ort Migrate.
  2. X-Cloner.

The first one did not like FTP username (it tested ok, but displayed error message on a real run), while the second created a nice backup, but did not clone it – just displayed the blog within my WP admin page and that’s it – no buttons to continue or any other clues. I skyped a friend, but  his internet connection was rubbish at that time. Ok, calm down, I thought – let’s sleep on it.

The next day I used Google again, and … behold. I found this great video. Very easy to follow (for a technical guy like me, at least, and if you’re not technical, than don’t touch technical stuff 🙂 – or give it a go, why not?). Have a look:

  1. Compress your existing WP installation.
  2. Create a new database.
  3. Create a new database user and add it to the new database (make a note of all the names and passwords).
  4. Copy or move the compressed installation to the destination folder and unzip it.
  5. Go to PHPMyAdmin in Cpanel.
  6. Export the old database.
  7. Open the newly created database and import the old one here.
  8. In the new WP installation folder edit wp-config.php.
  9. Change database and username details to reflect the new ones you just created.
  10. Add the below code and modify the URL accordingly.
  11. Save the file.
  12. Test the new site.

define(‘WP_HOME’,’http://XYZ.com’);

define(‘WP_SITEURL’,’http://XYZ.com’);

I hope this will work for you as well as it did for me. The above scenario is for cloning withing the same hosting account. With two different hosting accounts you will need to log in to Cpanel and PHPMyAdmin twice.

How to download any show, movie, video, program etc with BitTorrent

Just watch the video and you will see how easy it is.

WARNING: Please, make sure that whatever you share or download is legal – please, check with your local authorities. Some types of files might be illegal where you are, so you might put yourself in trouble. Also, I do not condone using unlicensed software if you use it to make money with it – this is also not legal in most countries. You have been warned!

You will need a torrent client and a torrent search engine. I recommend the following:

You can download the full 720*480 video here (right click and choose save)

Here you can see how it works: peer computers download the information about files needed from the tracker and then connect directly to each other. And it’s all anonymous (almost – your ISP is probably storing the data that might allow your authorities to find you):

Please, let me know if you have any questions.
