Italiano 201/202

Presenting the Mashup

In order to get a high resolution, web-based version of your mash up project, you will need to do the following:

1) Export your movie as in high-quality dv format. This will be a very large file, which we can then compress for web-viewing (if you are not using iMovie, let me know and I will get you directions for MovieMaker).

2) Once you have exported your video you have two choices:

  • Place the dv file on an external hard drive, CD/DVD, or large thumb drive and make an appointment with Jim Groom ( to compress and place the video online.
  • Alternatively, you can do the compression yourself if you download one of the following free programs: ffmpegX (Mac only) or Mpeg Streamclip (an Italian product!), both of which specialize in exporting your movie into a high-quality, compressed video file. I recommend the mp4 .h264 format for conversion which creates a bigger file than some other codecs, but has the best compression quality.
