Audio and Video Codecs

Different codecs translate in different ways, so a video file compressed using the Intel Indeo codec will be different from a file compressed using the Windows Media Video codec, for example.


For anyone interested in digital audio or video a basic understanding of audio and video codec’s is essential.


This article on the topic of audio and video codecs should help you:

The following in-depth article, complete with real examples of video in PDF, will have you reaching for your keyboard…

Windows Update is Getting Updated

Windows Update is a service provided by Microsoft for users of Microsoft Windows which provides updates for the operating system and its installed components.

On the 3rd July 2008 Microsoft announced that it has a update to its Windows Update infrastructure and has a planned gradual rollout, for later this month, of its Windows Update client.

This new Windows Update client rollout will occur automatically to any system configured to either: receive updates “automatically” or “notify” customers that new updates are available for download.

As you may already know Windows Update is designed to help consumers keep their systems up-to-date and to ensure ongoing service and reliability and smooth operation of its software. Microsoft frequently updates and enhances the Windows Update client to maintain and improve its quality of service.

The update to the Windows Update client, due late July 2008, will NOT make any changes to the way Windows Update looks or feels on the Windows PC.

It is solely aimed at improving:

#1 – The length of time it takes Windows Update to scan for updates
#2 – The speed in which signature updates will be delivered


This Windows Update Client Applies To:

• Windows Vista Business
• Windows Vista Enterprise
• Windows Vista Home Basic
• Windows Vista Home Premium
• Windows Vista Starter
• Windows Vista Ultimate
• Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition (32-bit x86)
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition (32-bit x86)
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition (32-bit x86)
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Web Edition
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Datacenter x64 Edition
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition for Itanium-Based Systems
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition for Itanium-based Systems
• Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
• Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
• Microsoft Windows XP Professional
• Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4

Unique Podcasting Domain Names Released!

Like many, the first time I heard Adam Curry’s podcast show, way back in late 2004, I just *KNEW* it would be an important technology for Internet Marketers. So I instantly went ahead and registered over 100 Podcasting related domain names and kept them under “lock and key” for almost 4 years!


UNTIL NOW.


…now I am releasing 45 of these Podcasting URL’s
