From From  Church Multimedia.  Software For $399, this program boasts the ability to toggle different things on each of your different projectors.  This  could be a very cost effective way for your church to do triple screen, all being separate.  Let me know if you’ve tried this.  They suggest you can easily insert your favorite presentation software to view within this program.  Let me know if you’ve used this, and how it works?

Playing Youtube Videos in Church Presentation Software!

Whether you use Propresenter, Easyworship, Mediashout, or the 46 other companies that Churches and like-minded organizations use to display lyrics, dvd’s, and other forms of Media, now there is a way to play Youtube files as well.  Welcome to Vixy.net.vixynet.jpg You can convert them into MP3, AVI, MOV, MP4,  and 3GP now, and its a free app

If you’re like myself, a fan of youtube; a vast library of videos submitted by users, you’re probably already hooked on tools such that allows you to download the video in FLVformat to store off line. I recently realized that there are lots of inspirational and funny videos available here as well as some of which I had tried in vain to search for, easily available by keying in the song title followed by a click on the Search button.   You can even convert to MP3, which you can then play on your Ipod, or MP3 player.  What a great tool for ministry.  Have you found a site like this that has worked for you?  Share!

Mediashout 3.5 on a Mac

bootcamp_hero20071016.pngI’m very pleased so far with Bootcamp, an apple application which allows users to be able to run Windows on your Mac.  The Leopard OS comes standard with Bootcamp, and allows you to run all of your Windows stuff, if so desired.  This is great for churches that want to make the switch, but don’t have thousands of dollars to abandon their favorite Windows programs, such as Mediashout, and move over completely to Native Apple products. I call it the best of both worlds (eh, perhaps i’ve been exposed to too much of my daughters Hannah Montana music).   Anyway, I get phone calls all of the time, of churches wanting to make the switch, but want to bring their PC software with them.  This program is for you.    Have you made the switch yet?  Are you thinking about it?
