My family is putting together a video scrapbookish thing incorporating old family movies, pictures and so forth. We’ve got a lot of big, old clips which we’re splitting, segmenting, and reassembling. That part’s not a problem; some of us (cough) are using VirtualdubMod and others Windows Movie Maker. I’m pushing to use something like Pinnacle to hopefully speed the process a bit.
The problem we’re having is twofold: coordination and content management. Can you recommend any products or sites which, ideally, allow us to:
[li]See all our video clips in some abstract organization. I figure this might be something like Picasa. This would be original videos, intermediate products, final products, and whatever byproducts pop out. Ideally browsable with leading frames, durations and so forth.[/li][li]Search/browse the video content in some meaningful way. I think tags would work well for this, where we could add freehand labels/categories to each video to track people, events, and so forth.[/li][/ol]
If this is web-accessible, that’d be perfect. These aren’t large files, but there’s an ever-increasing number. Not every participant groks FTP, which would at least allow an old-school file centralization repository, and no one wants to hand-maintain a separate spreadsheet of files vs tags vs locations. I don’t want the intermediate stuff to be publically accessible and I don’t want to be forced into some format like FLV.
