Reply Senior Sequence Class of 2008-2009 » Discussions » Recording video with your phone feed

At the end of class a student came up and asked if they could use their phone to record their 3 minute video for their postercast.

Although the quality of the video might be grainy and pretty low, using your camera phone to record a video to upload to SciVee is possible if you have bluetooth. You need bluetooth to transfer the file, unless you have another way to get the video file off your camera phone and onto your computer's local drive.

Once you get the file off your camera phone and onto your computer you will need to check to see if the video file is in one of the acceptable video formats (asf, avi, flv, mov, mp4, mpeg, mpg, wmv.). If it is not one of the accepted file formats, you can try using a free file conversion tool that I highly recommend called MPEG Streamclip. I have used this program to convert unusable formats to other formats in a pinch many times and it is pretty awesome:
