Free Webinar - Got Questions About Encoding Video for The Web?

Free Webinar   Got Questions About Encoding Video for The Web?UPDATE - You can watch the entire webinar replay here - Encoding Video for the Web.

Please join us tomorrow, May 5th at 11am Pacific, for our free webinar all about encoding video for the web.  If you are producing video for the web and have any questions about video compression, and/or want to learn how to encode high-quality video for the web, then this is the webinar for you.

You've likely been reading all the hype about Apple vs. Flash.  With that hype, it appears that there is a good deal of confusion out there when it comes to video codecs, video formats, platforms, etc....  And, even though it is my belief that leading blogs shouldn't write about things they dont understand, I completely understand the confusion (read my post -Video File Container Formats, Compression & Codecs – Oh My!)

Not only will we help to clarify (h.264, mp4, flv, swf, AAC, etc....) - but if you have any questions at all about encoding video...  you will have the opportunity to ask true experts.

Our presenters, Larry Kless and Robert Reinhardt, are two extremely well-respected online video specialists and amongst other things, they will provide an overview of h.264 as well as demonstrate how to simply and easily apply high quality h.264 encoding to your own videos.
