Video and Multimedia on the Internet
In order for video recordings to be used on a website, the video must be converted to a streaming format. This format may be, typically, windows media format, quicktime or flash video. Windows media is the most popular currently, utilizes windows media player, and has undergone significant improvement in file size and streaming quality in recent years. Flash video has also improved and has very good quality to size characteristics. Quicktime movies work well and require the quicktime player to be installed.
Our technology training and production lab can provide conversion to these formats, but usually use the windows media format.
Once a video file is converted to the .wmv file format or other streaming format, it can be uploaded to a website for playback.
An example of video streaming on the internet is found in the issues of the Journal of Technology in Counseling housed at Columbus State University. The link below connects you with an example of video streaming in the professional counseling journal.
Once the journal article is opened, scroll down the page and choose one the video clips for review.
