Experiments with Videos of Delphi 2010 Book Examples

Here is a first tentative video for showcasing the book examples.

Here is a first tentative video for showcasing the Delphi 2010 Handbook examples. Some of them, in fact, are hard to explain using a screen shoot, so I'm capturing very short demo videos. I got Jing from Techsmith (not terribly happy, but does its work).

I actually promised the same for the last book, but never delivered. For this book I'm trying to reserve some time... and also to make the process very easy (hence the idea of using the capture-and-load-on-YouTube feature of Jing). Here is a first example (well, I did capture another but when YouTube resizes the video it blurs the text... so I'll remove the other one).

Let me know if those of you who have the book find it useful. Without the book, it doesn't provide much value. 

Speaking of the book, I have a tentative final version. Still need to replace a couple of images and double check the PDF, but the book is now days from completion. And I've got an ISBN!

You really need Camtasia (also from Techsmith).  I've 
used versions 2 & 3 for all my videos - I think 
currently they're up to version 6 or so.

Let us know when you have the book ready.  I want to put some gesture 
stuff in my programs, and this would come in handy.

Or perhaps you need CamStudio (Open source Video capture).

I think pdf book 2010 cannot be printed because of
that I am waiting for the printed book version because
I would like to read it on bus, train, plane and so
on.  It is a bit difficult to open the laptop on the
bus for half hour. :-)
