Watch Videos at Sony’s MyPlay

5 Jan

Sony launched a website that features music videos from your favorite artists like the Kings of Leon, Beyonce, Britney Spears, ACDC, T-Pain, and many more. I like the interface because it is easy to use and I was able to surf through the videos easily. I would recommend checking out this website.

Fireside Internet Chat?

17 Nov

President-elect Barack Obama is doing another presidential first when his team recently announced that he will be holding his weekly addresses exclusively online. Senator Obama has been superior with his use of online technology during his campaign such as texting supporters of his choice as Biden as VP, Twitterring his whereabouts and registering an astronomical amount of online transactions.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (F.D.R.) started the trend back in the 1940s using radio as his medium of choice to speak to the nation, President Regan did the same and now President Obama will use the Internet; he will use the same medium that propelled him into the Oval Office. A new study released by Forrester says that the average age of people watching video online is 35 years old.

Will you watch our new president online or stick to TV?

The Next Generation of Chat

14 Oct

If you don’t have a web cam, then you are in a growing minority of computer owners. Now web cameras are built standard into most computers and if not they can be cheaply purchased. With the increase of broadband and the decline of dial-up Internet service, the ability to easily communicate via video on the web has increased two fold. With this new found speed of data, the quote from Spiderman, “With great power, comes great responsibility” seems relevant.¬† Webcams create a new reality and safety measures should be considered.

For example, I stumbled upon Paltalk while I was searching for instant messaging programs. Paltalk is an all-in-one instant messaging, group video calls & chat room program. With this Swiss army knife program, now you are not only chatting with others online, you are utilizing your web camera to take it to the next level.

Teen Webcam Safety Tips:

  • Keep your computer in an open area
  • Check what new programs have been installed on computer
  • Establish what is appropriate to do and say online

Are you concerned about the impact of web cams and your teen? What steps do you take to ensure children are using them appropriately?

Get the VLC Player

14 Aug

Every big computer company seems to have their own video/audio player. Apple has Quicktime / iTunes and Microsoft has Window’s Media Player. You can round out the video/audio program competition with Winamp, MusicMatch and RealPlayer. All of these players have one thing in common, none of them work well playing each other’s file formats. If you try to view an AVI File on Quicktime, it takes some work to make it happen. If you want to listen to an m4p file on Windows Media Player, I would rather search for a needle in a haystack.

Some friends recently told me about the VLC player because it’s free and it can virtually play any audio/video file format. After downloading and experimenting with it, I suddenly realized the VLC player rocks! VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, …) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

Download VLC
