Screencasts, Tutorials, Videos

TMVR Video SwitchJust a small wrap-up on our screencast activities.

I just finished the recordings for a German Joomla! 1.6 screencasts DVD (Video Training for Pearson). I'll also record a German Drupal 7 screencasts DVD (video2brain) in a few weeks (Therefore I am still looking for suggestions). My goal is to offer as many screencasts as possible for free. Free in the sense as I did with the Joomla! 1.6 Beginner's Guide book. One of the biggest problems for me is ... how to survive using this approach? :) I have no solutions at the moment but Flattr, the Joomla! 1.6 Beginner's Guide as a printed book and paid download and a few adsense banners on cocoate. So, it's up to you whether this will work or not.

In the last months I recorded something at times :) and for these videos I have created different channels. The English screencasts may sound funny because of my limited English, but the feedback I got on them was more than motivational and I am planning to record more! In the last few days, I converted all the screencasts to HD format (1,280×720 pixels - 720p). Wherever possible, I assigned the videos to the Creative Commons Attribution + NoDerivatives (by-nd) License. You can find the screencasts at the following places.

cocoate Website

All screencasts are listet in the cocoate.com/screencasts section. It is possible to filter according to languages and topics.
The screencasts are linked to book chapters if there is one.
A single screencasts URL has the structure cocoate.com/screencast/[language][id], e.g. cocoate.com/screencast/en0014.
The language and the ID appear in the headline too.

Vimeo 

I like vimeo for different reasons. The pro account costs me US$ 60 a year :(

YouTube

YouTube is free and I have to put them there. :)

iTunes

Since I work with Apple products, it is necessary to have an own video podcast in iTunes. :-) Voilà:

Have a look and hopefully it will be helpful for you!
