Jon Udell: From time-shifting to media-shifting

Jon make's a good point about "media-shifting." That is the ability to listen to a video recording. Let's say you want a CNN clip on your iPod. It's currently cumbersome to turn that video/audio into audio only. We need some cool apps to help this.

    This guy writing the article doesn't have any media capture software, which is really inexpensive. All he has to do is time-shift with Tivo or some open-source Tivo and playback the clip exporting only the audio to a computer with audio/video recording (video not neccessary)like Adobe Audible, Sound Forge, Final Cut, iMovie, Windows Recorder. Get the audio into wav format and convert in iTunes to .AAC so it's like a audiobook with pausing. It does take some effort and it would be nice to have media companies produce multiple formats, but these are our affordances of technolgy not theirs. Just because it can be done doesn't mean they should do it for us.

    To me, it's too much converting. That guy is a big into webcasting, so he's familiar with the tools. He (and I) were just saying there needs to be a '1-click' tool.
