Hot Movie Months Require Knowledge Of New Releases

The summer months are notoriously filled with the hottest and newest DVD and video movie releases. June through August usually offer the most and the best new movie releases. Most of the big production studios time their best new releases for these months because kids are out of school and more adults are looking for rental entertainment.

A the new movies reach the shelf each Tuesday, the day most new releases are made available, movie buffs need to be aware of which movies offer the best entertainment. Sometimes, the big blockbuster movies are preferred no matter what. However, often, it is lesser known titles, so-called “B” movies, that offer the deepest storyline and the best acting.

There are many great ways to rent movies. Large video rental chains like Blockbuster, Family Video, Hollywood Video and Movie gallery offer wide selections and recent hits. Blockbuster and NetFlix offer the two most popular online video rental programs despite the fast-growing interest from newer companies.

It is extremely important that movie fans stay up to speed with news and notes from the entertainment industry, while also learning about the best movies coming up for release. There are several quality movie review sites on the internet. Review sites usually offer some resources regarding upcoming movies and industry news. They also provide thorough reviews of movies, while offering viewers recommendations on what to watch and what to avoid.

June kicks off with several popular titles coming out, including: The Bucket, The Eye, Chaos Theory, and Jumper. However, the biggest hit of June, without a doubt, will be the action movie 10,000 B.C. While some movie reviewers question the depth and entertainment value of this upcoming movie, the movie was well-promoted and is certain to be a big ticket for rental movie goers.

July and August will feature several big draws as well. While the summer heat does create more interest in outdoor activity, it also gives people a desire to get relief from the blazing sun at times. For those evening getaways or hot summer days, check out reviews of new movies coming out at your local video store.

How To Download Music Videos Onto My iPod – An Easy Guide!

I know how the download music into my iPod but how do I download music videos?

This is a very familiar question which has a very simple and straightforward solution.

The first thing to consider when either playing music videos or movies on the iPod is the issue of compatibility. This sounds more complicated than what it really is but it’s absolutely vital to have a compatible download that will play on your iPod. It’s like trying to make Orange marmalade out of Lemons – it’s just not possible unless you have the files converted.

The best way to see if a movie or music video is compatible is to firstly open up the iTunes interface. You then source the video which you are looking to copy and select the ‘manage songs and playlists’ in the iPod tab in your iTunes preferences section. Once you have selected the tab then try and copy the music video file or movie file directly into your iPod library. If the music video or movie copies to the iPod then it will be compatible and you should be able to play it without any problems.

However, if the music video or movie does not copy directly to the iPod library it means you have a compatibility issue. This is not the end of the world it just means that if you really want this music video onto your iPod you’re going to have to convert it.

There are many converters in the market, many free but more of the decent ones will cost anything from $15-$35. Using this conversion method will mean that you have to convert the file in either a PC or notebook before transferring the file.

One thing that is important to know here is that if you have a Mac formatted iPod then you will only be able to add the file from a Mac and not from a Windows-based PC.

Another way of finding out whether a video is compatible is similar to the method above. I have found this method to be the most effective – you simply open up QuickTime (hopefully you have that already installed-if not, it’s free, just look up the QuickTime site and download it).

All you simply do, is open up QuickTime, select ‘window’ and click on short movie information. If the music video that you are looking to copy registers(shows up) in the information window-then it will be iPod compatible!

The easiest method!

There is an easier method to consider and this is the use of specialist sites which cater for iPod downloads. These are commonly referred to as unlimited download sites. The benefit of these sites, the reputable ones that is, is that they are not much more than $35 (lifetime membership). An iPod user can download music videos, movies and music from one source, virus free and the sites include conversion software as part of the package.

This means that you will be able to download music videos into your iPod with the least amount of hassle. Whilst, the selection of music, music videos and movies may not be as extensive as in iTunes most of these sites have very current movies and music videos on the database files. This means that you will have access to music video files which are ready to transfer directly to your iPod in nearly all cases.

A Pocket Size Camcorder Captures Your Video Movie Memories

The pocket size camcorder market was invented a couple of years back when Flip Video created their revolutionary Flip Mino pocket video camera.

Flip Video’s innovation was to roll available technology (digital video, SD flash cards and USB connectors) into an attractive point and shoot camcorder with a fixed lens. It was no bigger than a cell phone.

Wind forward to today and there are now numerous pocket camcorder models available. Here’s just some of the ways people are using pocket camcorders at home, work and play.

Pocket Size Camcorder Video Memories

You can preserve family memories as video movies not still photographs:

* Baby’s first steps

* Learning to ride a bike

* Sports day

As a pocket camcorder is so small and light weight you can take it everywhere and use it anytime. Most models also double as still digital cameras with a resolution of around 8 mega pixels or better. And many (but not all) have a built in flash.

There’s no need to wait for family gathering to share a video. You can post your video, for private viewing, at a video sharing site, like Vimeo or YouTube. Of course, you can also make your movie public to the world for those fifteen minutes of fame.

Making A Pocket Video Camera Work For You

Since these pocket size camcorder are light in weight and easy to use, why not jazz up work presentations or a dull corporate website with video clips. You might:

* Relieve PowerPoint boredom with a video clip

* Record a brain storming session for future reference

* Make video resume

A pocket camcorder is ideal for vacation video snapping

Being small and feather light, a pocket camcorder is ideal for stowing in hand luggage to make a living record of your holiday. Now, there are even pocket video cameras that can go underwater.

Shoot a few video clips and you have postcards that move and talk. Use the video editing software bundled with many pocket size camcorders to make video movies.

What’s the best pocket camcorder?

Here’s what to look for in a camcorder with pocket ability:

* Optical zoom (it’s smoother than digital)

* Shoot high definition video at the full 1080p standard

* Still camera facility at 5MP or better with flash

* AVI & HDMI cables for ordinary & HD-ready TV

The Flip video range is still number one for ease of use and seamless integration with both Windows and Mac PCs. But the Flip Mino HD and Flip Ultra HD are strictly point and shoot video cameras, they don’t have all the desirable capabilities listed above.

The pocket size camcorder market now has offerings from Aiptek, Creative, JVC, Kodak, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and Veho. Consider the pocket video cameras offered by Aiptek, Toshiba and Veho. They may not have the street credibility of Flip, but they do offer superior pocket camcorders at around half the cost of a Flip video camera

In conclusion a pocket camcorders deliver:

* A feather weight, simple to operate video camera

* You can take one anywhere to record video memories

* Most take still photographs, too

* Video is now easy to edit on PC or Mac

* And easy to incorporate into PowerPoint and websites
