Web Development and Online Insight from Dan Fernandez of WebBizIdeas [interview]

This is a new feature for us at You Brand, Inc.

We are starting to interview people that we feel have great insight. Also by listening to these interviews our goal is to give you actionable advice that can make a difference in your business. These interview will range ffrom business owners, entreprenuers, industry experts, or to someone who just has a great story to tell.

The interview below is from Dan Fernandez from WebBizIdeas:

  • Do you have an idea for a web application in your head? Dan gives some great advice on how to make this reality.
  • Key elements to a success web application
  • Wireframing and why doing this saves you time, money, and effort. As a side note I believe this can be transferred over not just to web development but business ideas as well.
  • Plus much more…

This is one of our first interviews and the first one in video. I did this in Skype and the connection dropped off a bit. Also I summarized the process I went through below if you are interested in doing this yourself. I noticed there might be some syncing issues… yes I know annoying.

How Did I Do This

  1. We did the interview in Skype
  2. While doing the interview I used a program called VodBurner.
  3. I then had to use VodBurner to edit this interview and export to AVI
  4. I imported this into Cyberlink Powerdirector and put the parts together
  5. Exported to MPG then used Adobe Media Encoder to Export to mp4 to save size

My Overall thoughts on this is it was a pain. First VodBurner does not record in any native format (ie AVI, MPG). So you have to use their program to render the video. So after  you have a recorded call you have to tell podburner you want to edit the call. It then converts this to AVI (both sides of the conversation). So essentially I had 2 50GB AVI files. One for my side of the call and one for Dan. You then use Vodburner to edit how the final AVI comes out. So I had about 100GB tied up by this process. Plus the original files that Vodburner records in.

I should mention that because we had a dropped call a few times that means I had to do the above three times.
