Rough Notes:  Video Resources on the Web

Presentation by Hall Davidson at the Midwest Internet Institute

Great archives for old material from black and white dancing cigarette ads to old  political television ads.

More of the same, plus deeper resources

(for sale).  See the notes below.  British footage from all realms and subject areas.  For PowerPoint, web, and more

Great commercial vender for instructional media in Quicktime, Windows Media Player, and some streaming only resources

From the great folks at PBS

Very good stuff from Nova.  Some for streaming, some for download.

Very good stuff from Nature.  Some for streaming, some for download.

More quirky, but valuable material

 For streaming.

This excerpt from "Inside the Teenage Brain" offers a glimpse into the research of Dr. Jay Giedd , a top neuroscientist who's studying the adolescent brain. Giedd uses magnetic imaging technology to peer into what he calls "the black box" of teenagers' brains. He's discovered an unexpected growth spurt, just before puberty, in the frontal cortex (the area of the brain involved in judgment, planning, and strategizing). This new growth is followed by a period of pruning and organizing the new neural connections which continues through adolescence.  (RealPlayer:  Shoot Screen)

Political material, some are very provocative.  Good things to stimulate thinking.

Great news material and some great very visual Flash animations.

About this site:  A Peek at History, Piracy-Free

In a move that started as a project to save money on film storage, British Pathe has put more than 3,500 hours of its old newsreels online, creating what it says is the largest online digital news archive. The move adds fresh perspective to the debate over online digital copyright management.

Newsreels are short news films, only a few minutes long, that covered the issues of the day and screened in movie theaters before the feature film. British Pathe produced its last newsreel in 1970.
Unlike the "ephemeral" films in the Prelinger Archives , which can be downloaded and used freely, British Pathe newsreels are still under copyright. British copyright expires 70 years after the death of the last surviving contributor to the work.
As such, Pathe has the right to charge for the use of the clips and to regulate how they may be used. Users can download low-resolution watermarked previews from Pathe's website for free. High-resolution clips for PowerPoint-type presentations given before a limited audience can be licensed for one year for £50 (about $78); clips that will be posted on the Web are licensed for £100 (about $157).
British Pathe also offers VHS and DVD newsreel compilations for £10 (about $16) per clip.
Initial fears that only a small number of history buffs would be interested in downloading clips were put to rest soon after the site debuted on Nov. 19. The company used up its monthly 46-GB download capacity in three days, after more than 250,000 users downloaded nearly 50,000 files.
"The costs (for extra bandwidth) were easily covered by PowerPoint, Web publishing and VHS sales," said Peter Fydler, the commercial director for British Pathe.
In contrast with many U.S. media companies, which are insisting on mandatory copy protection of digital content, British Pathe uses a much simpler method to protect its intellectual property: They've placed a small British Pathe logo in the bottom-right corner of each video.
There is also a very British warning on the site's FAQ, which states that the company "would hope ... that the images downloaded are not misused in any way."
"We're not too worried about the files being abused," Fydler said. "If anyone wants to rip off British Pathe, it's much easier, cheaper (and) higher quality to buy an historical VHS or DVD."
Then again, teenage pirates aren't as likely to swap high-resolution videos of the 1952 state funeral of King George VI with the same fervor as they trade camcorder copies of Star Trek: Nemesis .
Yet the success of Pathe's simple strategy doesn't surprise the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Cory Doctorow. "They're treating their customers like customers, not criminals. It's not surprising that they're thriving," he said.
A representative of the Motion Picture Association of America declined to speak on the record about British Pathe's policy. The MPAA supports Sen. Fritz Hollings' Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act (PDF), which calls for circuitry to be built into consumer electronic hardware to prevent unauthorized duplication of copyrighted media.
Doctorow points out that copy protection has never effectively stopped dedicated piracy. "It just controls what the average citizen can do with the media they've paid for."
But British Pathe's apparent success has yet to inspire other media companies. Peter Bregman, archivist for Fox Movietone newsreels, and Peter Costiglio, a spokesman for AOL Time Warner's Time Inc., each said their companies have no plans to make their newsreel archives available online.

General tips on downloading video files.

If you have a low speed modem connection and wish to view the videos at better quality, you might want to download them to your hard drive instead of streaming them. RealPlayer files cannot be downloaded. To download Windows Media files, right-click on the link and and select "Save Target As...." Save the file to an appropriate place on your hard drive. Use "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer" to navigate to the file and double-click on it. This will open it up in the Windows Media Player. Downloading "Broadband" Win Media files will give the best viewing but will require longer downloading time.
