POPcast Communications Corp., the leading application
service provider (ASP) in the personal Webcasting market, today
announced the beta 2.1 release of their POPcaster digital video
encoding and conversion software for PCs.
The new software is available as a free 1.3-megabyte download from
www.popcast.com. POPcaster allows users to capture video through a wide
variety of capture devices and easily convert files from AVI, MPEG and
WAV formats to Microsoft’s Advanced Streaming Format (ASF). Files saved
in the ASF format can be uploaded to users’ personal accounts on
POPcast.com and can then instantly be shared with their friends, family
members and business colleagues around the world.
“We’re working hard to make it as easy as possible for people to share
video files over the Web,” said William Mutual, POPcast’s President and
Chairman. “This proprietary tool was developed to make it simple for
any consumer to prepare video files for streaming on the Web without
requiring any digital video expertise.”
Once members of any POPcast-enabled Web portal have converted their
digital video files and uploaded them to their accounts, they can then
send a customized email message containing a Web link to their content.
They can also share videos in a variety of ways, such as video albums,
video greeting cards and public showcases. POPcaster can be downloaded
today from POPcast.com, which also offers a wealth of helpful
information for novices, including a comprehensive tutorial, a POPcast
Publishing Wizard and links to advanced conversion resources and leading
video production, capturing and editing tools.
