cp1.jpg This episode completes the trilogy covering Apples .Mac service.

Although .Mac has been around for a while, it's a hot topic at the moment due to the excellent integration between the recently announced iLife 06 suite and .Mac.

This episode covers some of the collaborative tools built right into .Mac, principally Groups and also gives a first look at the new iWeb application.

The .mac group created in the screencast is available on-line and details on how you can get a free invite are included on the ScreenCastsOnline forum by following the link below.

Please Note For this week I've sent the same formatted file to both the iPod and Desktop feeds so the iPod and desktop buttons below point to the same file. This file is in the new 640x360 MPEG-4 format that will play both on the desktop and also in the iPod. If you want the full screen, high definition 1280x720p version of this screencast, you'll need to join the growing band of ScreenCastsOnline contributors and make a $2 per month donation to ScreenCastsOnline via the donation buttons in the side panel.

I've had a few requests for an annual subscription rather than monthly so there is now an Annual donation button for an annual donation of $20 to support ScreenCastsOnline and get access to the High Definition version and other special contributer content.

A run down of three different apps to encode your video clips into iPod format.

I also include some tips on managing your clips within iTunes and announce details of a new competition coming up in the next few weeks

As of this episode I've decided to make the HiDef version (720p) of this and future screencasts available to ScreenCastsOnline contributors only. This will be done via a special RSS feed, details of which can be found on the ScreenCastsOnline forum in the contributors only section. As usual, the desktop and iPod versions will still be available for free download.

So if you want to get this and future screencasts in glorious high definition, just click on the monthly donation button in the sidebar and signup for a $2 per month subscription! This will also give you access to other premium content available now and planned for the future

If you want to see an example of a screencast in HiDef, just go to the SCO0023 - RapidWeaver part 1 episode on click on the "HiDef Version" Button at the bottom of the post to download the HiDef version of that episode for free. Note - You may want to right or cntrl click and save the file to your computer to view locally although you can stream it just by clicking the button. It is a fairly big file so broadband is recommended!

This episode features Rapidweaver by Realmac Software.

Rapidweaver is a fantastic website creation tool that allows you to create and publish professionally themed websites with no programming whatsoever. This first part gives you a walkthrough of the basic functionality of Rapidweaver and future episodes will cover the more advanced features.

Update - Rapidweaver Part 2 now available

Be sure to watch this through to the end where you'll be given details of an exclusive offer for ScreenCastsOnline and MacTV viewers - 15% off the online price for Rapidweaver (offer on up to 31/01/2006). Also, by using the special ScreenCastsOnline discount code, you are also supporting ScreenCastsOnline

Not only is the content special for this screencast but I'm pleased to announce some changes to the formatting of the screencasts.

For the first time, ScreenCastsOnline screencasts will be available in three different formats:

Hi Definition 720p
cp1.jpg This is a version in glorious HiDef at 1280 x 720 resolution and is available for download by right clicking (or CNTRL clicking) on the HiDef button below. Save the file to your computer and view in Quicktime player. This file will not be included in the regular feed due to its size. I may create a separate RSS feed for HiDef content for ScreenCastsOnline contributors.

Optimised for Desktop
This is the normal version of the episode which is included in the Desktop RSS feed (960 x 540).

Optimised for iPod
This is a separate episode that has been encoded and edited for optimal viewing on the iPod 5G and is included in the iPod RSS feed. New! An additional feature of the iPod edition is that it now has "zooms" that will display the normal desktop and then will zoom into menus or dialogue boxes so that you can actually read what is on the screen when viewing on your iPod. It's a lot more work but I think the results are worth it!

Update for iPod Users - Previous versions of the screencasts have been reformatted to play on the iPod by rescaling the resolution from 960x600 to 320x240. This has resulted in files that will play on the iPod but can be diificult to view as the whole screen is compressed into the small iPod screen.

For this edition I've done an experiment which has resulted in the iPod file being slightly larger than usual! This is because the file contains two complete copies of the screencast. The first is the standard screencast compressed to fit onto the iPod and the second is the exact same version but "zoomed" into the screen to try and follow the action.

This should make the screencast much more readable but does mean there are sections where there is a lot of screens whizzing about! This is just an experiment so excuse the jerkiness in places!

I'd be grateful for some feedback as to which version you prefer and have set up a poll on the SCO forum to allow you to vote and to add any comments. Please vote on the poll here: Link

cp1.jpg For SCO Contributors Only - Well I said I'd produce some "premium" content for you SCO contributors out there as a token of my appreciation for your support and this is the first one.

It's a cracker!

If you've never seen what's available on the Usenet Binary Newsgroups or if you have seen and didn't understand how it all works, this screencast is for you

It takes you through using a commercial Usenet service, accessing easy to use Usenet Indexing services, automating the download of Usenet binaries using NZB files and the use of PAR files.

This screencast is only available to current and future SCO contributors.

I've set up a special RSS feed for this and future "Premium" content and the feed address is posted in the SCO Contributors section on the SCO forum. So if you're an existing SCO contributor and haven't registered yet on the forum, please do so and drop me an email with your login name. I'll upgrade your account on the forum which will give you access to the SCO contributors area and full instructions on accessing the feed will be posted there.

If you're not a contributor and would like access to this screencast and other "Specials" in the future, please feel free to make a donation to SCO using either the ad-hoc or monthly donation buttons on the ScreenCastsOnline website.

The next free Screencast will be posted on the usual feeds in the next couple of days!

Thanks for your ongoing support!

This is the first in a series of screencasts especially for mac switchers. This episode covers the Dock in OSX and demonstrates how to master both simple and advanced built in fucntions of the dock.

Future episodes will cover all aspects of OSX tiger to give switchers (and potential switchers) a really good start in mastering their mac.

This episode will be the last full episode to be replicated from the macTV feed. I'll still be doing macTV episodes but they will only be "tasters" for the ScreenCastsOnline episode so you'll need to make sure that they are subscribed to ScreenCastsOnline. I'm wondering if I should create a separate feed just for these switcher episodes? Feedback on that would be appreciated!

PS - I'm assuming all switchers will be using a two button mouse so there are references to right click throughout - If you're a switcher and you haven't got a two button mouse then go and get one immediately!

I've been getting some fantastic feedback following the recent ScreenCasts and it looks like they really are providing a useful service for a lot of people!

In fact, they've been so well received that several people have asked if there was a way to contribute to the upkeep of the show to show their appreciation for the help that SCO has given them. Cool!

After some deliberation, I've created a couple of buttons to allow people to do just that!

The basic philosophy of SCO remains the same in that we will continue to provide free content to anyone who wants to access it. Any contributions are purely voluntary but totally appreciated. I thought I'd adopt the Leo Laporte model (!) and set up two buttons on the ScreenCastsOnline website - Check out the side bar for the actual buttons:

cp1.jpg This lets you contribute an ad-hoc amount any time you want via PayPal. If there's a screencast that you have found particularly useful or if you just want to send something my way then this is the best option!

cp1.jpg This button will take you through the simple process of setting up a $2 per month contribution via PayPal. I'm currently pushing out approx 8 x 15-20 minute shows per month so that equates to 25c per show! This would be my preferred option as it will help guide me as to how well the shows are doing. It's a bit of an experiment in quasi-micropayments.

For those people kind enough to contribute, I'll be looking at ways of providing some additional content or perhaps early access to shows. If I ever go over to a more formal subscription based service (you never know where this all might lead but there will always be free content), rest assured - all you early supporters will get special treatment!

Privacy Policy - Just as a final note
Please be assured that any personal details passed to me via PayPal (e.g. email addresses) will never be passed on to anyone else - period.
I will maintain a list of contributors and may occasionally send you emails but they will only be in connection with ScreenCastsOnline and I promise I won't send you unsolicited adverts, etc.

Keep Subscribed!

No Votes at Podcast Alley How embarrassing!

I registered with Podcast Alley over a month ago and forgot to tell anyone about it!. Been too busy making screencasts.

Consequently, I have 0 comments, 0 monthly votes, 0 overall votes and a monthly rank of 3529 :-)

Do me a favour and make a vote for me at Podcast Alley each month. I've included a new button in the Subscribe section of the sidebar so it will only take a few seconds.

Here's a Link if you're getting this via RSS

I feel that subscriptions to SCO are starting to plateau a bit so need to have a bit of a push "getting the message out" so Podcast Alley will help.

I'll try and make a few more promos to get played on a few podcasts.

Any one else got any good ideas?
