And it’s another surprise!

Last week it was a surprise as there was no intro music. This week’s surprise is a video podcast for you! I had no idea I would do this so soon, but I got curious as to whether I could use my good microphone along side my webcam. (the webcam has a built-in microphone so I was not sure)

I found out that they work well together. What a good feeling. So, I have one way to do a video podcast. There are others. This way uses YouTube to record the video, upload it and process it. And then, as if by magic, you can actually search YouTube for “CapeWP podcast” and it will pop right up. (no quotes, of course)

Will this be the first of many?

One thing for sure is that in the spirit of learning, next time I will find a way to look directly at the camera.

The first video, disappeared into thin air, never to be seen again. So, using an online service to record my video seems to be perilous. I never had that issue with the audio podcasts. So, next time, if there is a next time, I will record from my computer. Losing work is no fun.

I thought I had lost the entire second video after I got the message after 5 minutes that “upload failed”. And there was no way to re upload that I could see. Well, off to Google to find out for sure and by the time I got back to YouTube, it had miraculously managed to upload the file correctly.

Maybe I could get my friend who works on The Good Wife to help me and we could produce a podcast called… The Good Cat 🙂

Enjoy your holidays. Drive safely. The Summer Season of 2014 is here.
