Video Tools for the Linux Inclined (And Anyone Else)

March 30, 2008

As you've probably noticed, I'm keen on video -- Internet video, that is. I'd much rather spend the evening perusing YouTube than watching Seinfeld reruns. Which is why anything that involves producing and sharing video (like Beautiful Code Video, Round 1 is of interest.

Which is also why I'm always keen on learning more about video production tools, like those Mike Riley describes in his article Dual-screen Recording In Linux.

Mike's examination focuses on Linux-based tools, but its still useful non-Linux folks too. Knowing the kind of tools and their features is where you start.

So if you've produced any short videos -- instructional, entertaining, or whatever -- let me know. I'd like to take a look-see at them, and share them with your peers.
