With COVID our church has moved to putting the talks online. Â The most important thing when recording talks is good audio quality. Â Your eyes can put up with poor video, Â but poor audio gets irritating very quickly. Â Thankfully it’s very easy to get clear sound.
The key is to use an external microphone so that the mic can be close to the person who’s talking. Don’t use the mic that’s built into your laptop or phone. Â This is especially important if you are in an online meeting where you are listening as well as speaking.
I recently purchased a new Mac mini and it does not have a FireWire or Thunderbolt port. You will also have the same problem if you have purchased a very recent model MacBook Pro or iMac. The problem is I have quite a nice 3CCD Panasonic video camera that has a FireWire port on it. I need a Firewire to USB-C adapter but Apple don’t make one. They are changing ports faster than they can make new adapters.
Thankfully, as I found out today, you can plug your FireWire cable into a ‘FireWire to thunderbolt’ adapter and then you can plug this adapter into a ‘Thunderbolt to USB- C’ adapter. IT looks a mess but it works.
It may not be pretty, but the signal gets through. My computer was able to control the video camera and the video was able to import into QuickTime.
I’ve removed this entry as it’s against the youtube terms and conditions to download any video from youtube even if the author of the video says you can.
So if you want to share a video put it on Vimeo, not youtube.
