Somewhat recently I have gotten into listening to woodworking podcasts, as well as watching some video podcasts.
I started to think, I wonder what it takes to make one of these (video podcast, specifically)? In looking into it you basically need a digital video camera, some type of video editing / formating software, and a place to post the content to.
Now, I have a mini-dv video camera, iMovie HD on my Mac will allow editing as well as formating to an mp4 file type. I was able to locate a site that will host non-commercial podcast content for free.
Now the question comes, "should I give it a shot and try to make one?"
The reason that I'm considering this, is a guy that I work with runs a forum where I'm pretty much the woodworker in residence (it isn't a woodworking specific forum, but has a woodworking section). I post shop tips and how-tos periodically. I was thinking that I could take some of the stuff that I have put up and do short video podcasts on it (10 to 15 minutes long). It would mostly be aimed at beginning woodworkers.
I know that I have alot of other things eating up my time right now. However I was only planning on putting out one or two a month.
Let me know what you think!
