Practice with facebook live

Here’s a practice video for purposes of portrait mode vs. Horizontal and audio quality. This one was done holding the phone vertically.

Second practice, holding phone horizontally and speaking louder. A better result

Third practice.  With earbuds in the phone jack. Seems to be better audio. But I also upped the volume for media and system on my phone first.  Also tested filters, which you can switch as you go.

And I really like that the link to the FB live video that i copied shows up automatically when I use the hypertext link feature for this blog post

Video: Feeding time at the farm

Decided to practice with Adobe Spark, as recommended by BU prof Michelle Johnston, for quick and easy video making. She was right!

Tip: Spark provided the embed code. But to make it show in this WordPress post, I needed to insert it into the “text” view.

OK, that is weird. When I did this first time, I saw the video inside the post. Now, i’m just seeing the URL. ummm.  I did do an edit. Maybe I need to wait and/or refresh.

It also might be because I chose to put this on the privacy setting, which adds a no-index tag to the post to block search engine robots . Tho if you have the URL, you can see it.

And it appears that there is no mobile app – yet — for Android users – like me –  tho it can be installed on any desktop.
