How to convert HD video to other format without losing quality?

High-definition video or HD video refers to any video system of higher resolution than standard-definition (SD) video, and most commonly involves display resolutions of 1280×720 pixels (720p) or 1920×1080 pixels (1080p). Some DV or camera recorded video formats are also HD video such as TS, M2TS, TP, TRP, etc.

Rumor: iPhone 5S and iPad 5 Special Releasing Event-‘Original Passion, New Ideas’

So many rumors about iPhone 5S/iPhone 6 or iPad 5, actually maybe most of us more care about if Apple give us more surprise as people’s passion is less than before.

According to Gizmorati, the event will carry the “Original Passion, New Ideas”  tagline, marking the transition from a Steve Jobs run Apple to one under the control of current CEO Tim Cook.


This year Apple will celebrate six years since the release of the first iPhone, on June 29, 2007. The Original iPhone was introduced to the public earlier that year by Steve Jobs, during a keynote at the Macworld 2007 convention, in San Francisco.

An inside source from Apple (also confirmed by a third party) told Gizmorati that its both devices, the iPhone 5S and the iPad 5 will be unveiled during a special event called ‘Original Passion, New Ideas’, on June 29, 2013. This event is intended to celebrate six years from the launch of the original iPhone, under the leadership of Steve Jobs and the release of the iPhone 5S and iPad 5, under the leadership of Apple’s current CEO, Tim Cook, as both of these devices are developed entirely under Cook’s authority (Businessweek reports that iPhone 5 was the last Apple device to get the Steve Jobs’ blessing before production).

A large part of Apple’s success is due to the vision and popularity of Steve Jobs and after the recent disappointments like Apple Maps, AAPL stock price going down, weak sales (as TheVerge and Mashable reported) and Tim Cook’s approval rating falling, the company is trying to reconquer the public and reassure the investors, showing that Jobs’ passion and vision regarding Apple are still contemporary within the company.

Do you think the ‘Original Passion, New Ideas’ special event will help Tim Cook and Apple, overall?

 

Hot Websites to Download Videos Free

YouTube is well known all over the world, thousands of users enjoy videos on YouTube. Besides YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, Vimeo, IMDb are also hot website to enjoy video online. Watching free videos on the web is easy. Unfortunately, we don’t always have time to watch videos online when we find them. But we can download video from these websites, so we can watch them at our leisure.  As we know, it is hard to directly download videos from video websites, but many video downloader tools allow us to download video freely, such as snowfox YouTube downloader HD.

An article from real introduces five sites to download online video free.

1. YouTube

You’re probably already familiar with YouTube, the world’s most popular video-sharing site and the third most popular site on the entire Internet. YouTube racks up a staggering four billion video views daily. Any registered user can upload their videos to YouTube. The site has also become a popular source for official versions of music videos, movie trailers, and particularly crowd-pleasing TV commercials.

2. Metacafe

Metacafe is another video site specializing in shorter and more popular videos. Whereas YouTube is a giant, endless buffet of videos, Metacafe is more like the Chef’s Special of the Day – fewer overall videos that are well-organized and easy to find in genres like Music, Sports, and TV clips. Metacafe keeps an outstanding array of current movie trailers, and then pairs them with exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes videos related to that particular movie. Metacafe’s “Trending on the Web” section curates and collects the Internet’s most popular viral videos of the day. It’s a great place to quickly find a certain popular viral video you’ve heard about.

3. Dailymotion 

One of the largest video sites in the world, Dailymotion makes finding videos easy with a nicely organized home page. Dailymotion visitors see a slew of the current videos in categories such as Funny, Geek Out, News, and countless others. Most videos on Dailymotion are less than four minutes. Registered “super users” can upload videos of up to an hour in length and in high-definition (HD), but you don’t have to register to download the longer videos. Some of the video categories on Dailymotion are a little racier than most YouTube categories, but family audiences can still enjoy categories like Animals and Games. Dailymotion is easy to navigate, and pulls up galleries of recommended videos that you’re likely to enjoy based on your viewing habits.

4. Vimeo

Specializing in HD, Vimeo is an amateur video site where the results are anything but amateur. Most of the videos available on Vimeo are user-submitted; it’s not a site to visit if you’re looking for popular music videos or movie trailers. What you will find, though, are big and beautiful HD videos shot by some of the most skilled up-and-coming directors and animators. The Vimeo video screen is far larger and has a higher resolution than any of the other sites mentioned here.

5. IMDb 

The Internet Movie Database has become more than just a tool for figuring out who’s that actress in the movie you’re watching. IMDb has grown into a site that offers movie trailers and clips from popular talk shows like “The Late Show with David Letterman” – all of which can be downloaded to your computer. There are also full episodes of TV shows that can be watched at IMDb. The site even offers a huge gallery of full-length movies and short films made by up-and-coming directors.

Many of the movies and short-films listed on the site are available for viewing, however, you’ll be given the option to go to another site such as Crackle or Amazon to watch the movie. Note: Those sites typically require a subscription. That said there are older video options on the site such as Paradise Canyon with John Wayne, as well that don’t require a subscription. Those videos are part of the Internet Archive Project and can be watched online for free or even downloaded from the site.
