Bit rate 64 settings using a Mac

I am feeling little challenged - something that I am sure will be a consistent phenomena for the next 6 weeks. Learning the concept in "windowspeak" and then translating to "macspeak is a bit of a learning curve. I found the method to set a bit rate of 64 for the Mac version of Audacity is established in Audacity preferences> File Format> MP3 Export Setup then the drop down menu> 64. If I have posted this entry twice - it maybe the beginning of that head knocking thing I heard about.

64 Bitrate for mp3: Trouble with LAME? Consider using winLAME instead

winLAME is the external stand-alone version of LAME, which is usually inserted into Audacity in order to enable mp3 file conversion to Academy's requirements. Some people have trouble building LAME into Audacity. No sweat now, use winLAME (freeware):

Just process through the wizard (Next >>) like this in order to get to the Bitrate setting box:

So much learning to do

I do feel a feeling of satisfaction at having uploaded my audio. Content leaves a lot to be desired I think and it could have been better edited, but I haven't always had success with audacity and now I think I've learnt something which might make it easier for next time. So thanks for the experience. I know I still got a lot to learn

Sharing great ideas

Participating in the orientation session for Class 2.4 was extremely rewarding. I found joining the Skype cast some what challenging because I am using a Mac and the Screencast instructions were created using Windows. I felt a sense of relief joining a group of people not only with similar goals but also starting out at the beginning of the process of online communications.

First post, lots to learn

It was an interesting intro session for the WCA class of 2.4 this afternoon (for me, for others much earlier in the morning!).  The noodling about and asking questions was a great way to get a sense of where everyone is with webcasting - and that we all have so much to learn, even those who have done this before. The changing pieces of technology and the ways in which they interact when combined will no doubt continue to make  webcasting a never-ending learning process.  

Try Try Again!

Goal for 2008

I can not believe that one class has already finished and another class is about to start, since I first started my Webcast Academy Internship!  I have set myself a definite goal for 2008.  I WILL graduate from the Webcast Academy this year.  I currently have 2 full 1 hour shows under my belt and after two or three more, I feel that I will be ready to do my Gradcast show.
