Best Ways to Share Your Videos
Before the turn of the century, you might have found yourself trapped in a relative’s living room, watching the 120-minute uncut version of their Tahitian vacation, complete with repetitive footage, plenty of static, and times when someone accidentally hit the record button. Nowadays, ease of editing, high-definition video, and length limits on video-sharing sites help make viewing home movies the opposite of boring. Along with more devices to shoot with -camcorders, pocket video cameras, digital cameras, and smartphones -you now have more options to share that are quick and painless.

Share on Your TV
The easiest way to share the video you just shot is to connect your camera or smartphone to your TV through either an HDMI or A/V cable. If you have a Flip pocket video camera, you can pick up a FlipShare TV base ($100) that connects to your TV and receives video wirelessly from your computer. After connecting to your TV, use your camera playback controls or remote control to skip around and play clips of just "the good stuff”. It might be tempting to turn this exhibition into a raw footage extravaganza, but unless your audience is in the video, you run the risk of losing them to yawns and jingling keys.

Play on Your Computer
Transfer or capture video to your computer using either a USB 2.0 or FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable (usually supplied with your camera or smartphone). To make things easier the Kodak Zi8 and the Flip UltraHD pocket video cameras have a built-in flip-out USB 2.0 arm that connects to your computer, so there's no need to lug around a cable. Smartphone and pocket camera video usually does not need to be converted –clips are ready to play and share once they reach your computer. But to watch video from a camcorder or some digital cameras with video capability, you may need to convert your clips to a playable format. It's actually less complicated than it sounds. Windows Movie Maker (PC) and iMovie (Mac) make it pretty easy. You just capture your footage and save it or export it to one of the popular playable formats like MOV, AVI, WMV, or MP4. Now you can slide your friends and family in front of your computer and play your videos using Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, or iTunes.
Pass out DVDs
Getting your video ready for a DVD player can be done in a few simple steps. If you own a camcorder that records directly to DVD, you’re already there. If you have any other kind, first, capture or import your video from your camera or smartphone into Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, or another video editing program –some devices come with their own video editing software. Now, make edits to your video on the timeline. Stringing together highlights is an easy way to create a captivating video. Consider adding music. Matching music to the mood can punch things up and make it emotionally engaging. Next, export to a format like MOV, AVI, or WMV. Then, import to a DVD burning software like Roxio MyDVD ($50) or DVD Power Burner (free), create a DVD Menu, and burn as many copies as you want to share. If you're using iMovie, you can just export to iDVD. For most DVD players, DVD-Rs are the way to go for compatibility across the board.
Share Online
Most of the newer digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and smartphones connect directly to social media sites and convert your videos to begin sharing them immediately. Otherwise, it might be necessary to import or capture video to your computer, trim it in an editing program (social media sites and email have limits on length and file size; see below), and export it to a file type (MOV, AVI, MPEG4, etc.) supported by sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, MySpace, or TwitLens (for Twitter). When you upload a video, there are options to add a title, a description, and tags (to make it searchable). Once uploaded, you can immediately share it with your contact list, send it in an email, embed it in a webpage, or simply share it with the world. If you’re adding music to your video, be aware that most social media sites restrict use of copyrighted music. Sites like jamendo.com and creativecommons.org let you download and use copyright-free music for free. Don't understimate the power of free; there's some real talent there.
