Igniter Media does it again.  Intro: Igniter(backs)4       Unlike movie sequels that tend to be less impressive than the original (see Indiana Jones), Igniter comes through with another amazing set of backgrounds, motion loops, countdowns, and stills.  If you are looking for that perfect new look for the Fall, yes I said Fall, and yes, I know that it’s July, check this out.

Playing Youtube Videos in Church Presentation Software!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:46 am by charlesshyblosky

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!

I can envision this being a Video Venue Church someday….:)

cowboy_stadium.jpgOk, so I’m easily impressed with bells and whistles.  😉   The Dallas Cowboys are adding an amazing design element to the New Stadium they are building, read about it, HERE.  with a never before seen center-hung video board. It hangs 110-feet above the field from the arches, but here is what will be exciting to fans: It will stretch between the 20 yard lines, meaning the sideline boards will span 60 yards. So the fans sitting in the upper decks will have what amounts to a larger-than life game being played directly in front of them if they choose not to look down at the field (certainly not to gaze at the ever-so famous cheerleaders :)).  And this high-tech video experience doesn’t exclude those fans sitting at both ends of the stadium, since there will be two 48-foot wide boards facing them to enhance their experience.   Of course, everything in Texas is Big, right?   I wonder if they’d let me try out my xbox 360 on this thing?  Thoughts?
