BandTrax VidCast

BandTrax VidCast:
"BandTrax is now VidCasting!"

Looks like you need to right-click and Save As to download it cuz it won't seem to stream yet - at least on my Mac.
It's like MTV for your RSS 2.0 feed, but without the expensive studio.

Hey CC, nice job directing the video from Now is Now.

It's great to see you branching out to video. I clicked on the earlier posting's .mp4 file, from a Mac, and didn't get the video. Had to download it as you mention in the instructions.

Come join the videoblogging group over at Yahoo! for tips on how to get the .mp4 file to stream. I think your server has to set a mime type for that .mp4 file.

If you are running Apache, and can use .htaccess files, this might

AddType video/mp4 .mp4
AddType video/mpeg .mpeg .mpg
AddType video/quicktime .mov

Also, on your newest vidcast, providing the file as a .zip won't make it easy to subscribe to and view for people using aggregators such as FireANT. Are those vidcasts supposed to be for PSP only? Can you make an RSS 2.0 feed with enclosures made up of .mov files for the band videos?

  1. I could have swore I gave some advice just like that about Apache. ;)

    Hey Steve,
    Thanks for the comments and the advice. I think we solved the .zip issue by now providing an RSS version for ANT and still keeping the .zip which is for the PSP. The current site is temporary so I don't want to put too much into it, but hey I appreciate the comments and the advice!

    Glad you dug the video Steve! We've got to hook up one of these days.
