Web – Video Crossroads: 01-09-2014

Web - Video Crossroads - Thurs., January 09
PROGRAM: Foretelling 2014... A Year To FEAR TECH!

Our group manager, Mike McGready will lead a discussion on why tech is a threat like never before! Whether the threat comes from a multi-million dollar hacking enterprise, the NSA or Facebook, 2013 has revealed that we are under attack! Privacy is a distant memory! Your personal information is more vulnerable than ever! To stimulate debate, Mike will use brief videos of some of the best minds on the globe discussing related topics at TED conferences. Fasten your seat belts!

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences -- the TED Conference and TEDGlobal. TED conferences bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).

    I sensed the entire group went on alert after hearing all the tech threats we face today. Countering these threats and making money at it is likely to be a frequently visited topic this year.

    I hope you had a great meeting last night. I'm sorry, I wasn't able to make it. Something suddenly came up in my personal life. Sorry. Hope see you all next month.

    Timely topic. Disturbing topic. Made a good start at increasing our awareness of the problem. Looking forward to revisiting the issue further this year and discussing solutions to the problem.

    I am having trouble getting a video to display on my website. Using the H.264 and the html5 <video> tag. Can anyone give me some advice? Maybe the resolution or dimension, or the file size? Do I need to use a HTML5 video player? Been doing a lot of research on the web. haven't found my answer yet. I can't use You Tube for this project so that is out. I never used to have all these issues back in the day when I could use Flash and when we didn't have all these devices and browsers.

      Jennifer, I wonder if this will help. Open your video in Quick Time Player and export the video for web. See if that can get you a HTML 5 video.

      Bill Lang just went through this a month ago and solved it nicely. I'm carpooling to the meeting with him tonight so I will ask him to contact you.

      Jeff, if you'd like to do a quick overview of this article after the break, that would be great. If you prefer, Ivan or I could do it.
