comment Video file size for web use
Why not have a look at youtube's specs for a ballpark? Then test it on your server on a variety of devices and locations. bit.ly/1NNxDhX

comment Video with inconsistent exposed / rendered image sizes
The specs for HDV are listed here. You'll see that the frame is indeed anamorphic. You could use vf scale=1920:1080,setsar=1:1 to ensure the output is full raster (though it will be interpolated).

You might be better asking on SuperUser.

comment Using a static Boom Pole
I recommend that approach. Lav mics can get good sound without too much fuss, but I often find that a boom mic gets better sound quality, and you don't have the problem of clothing noise and accidental bumps from the talent. Where a lav mic really is useful is for an interview where the subject isn't static.

comment Overshoot expression: Consider variable text width
I think the problem here is that that bounce expression works by measuring the velocity at the keyframes on the size property, and adding an oscillation to it after the keyframes. But if the value is being driven by the length of the text then the keyframes are irrelevant. If you align the keyframes in the rectangles with the keyframes for the type reveal the expression works

comment Fast encoding with ffmpeg
Faster presets do less work to come up with the same quality if you're using Constant Rate Factor (-crf). So AFAIK the trade-off isn't less quality, but bigger files.

comment Camera stabilisers compatible with shooting in portrait
Could you add a right angle bracket to the mount of an existing stabiliser. Just a bit of steel would do it. The stabiliser would have to be large enough, but looking at the one we've got (DJI Ronin) I'd say it would be do-able.

comment Can I import .mov files with embedded closed captioning into Premiere Pro CS6?
ffmpeg can also extract subtitle streams from .mov files. something like ffmpeg -i input.mov -map 0:s output.srt should work, where input.mov is your movie file and output.srt is the name of the srt you want to create.

comment What are the main limitations on using the following setup to boost frames per second capturing?
Sounds like a good idea. Triggering the cameras at the right interval might involve some custom electronics or software, and making the two images register perfectly might be tricky, but the rest would be relatively simple.

comment software for frame images to video with changing framerate?
If you know any scripting you could create duplicates to pad the frames out so that there were an even number of frames per minute (with appropriate renaming).

comment Split video screen into 3 equal parts
This question might get better answers if you supply a little more information. There is a lot of software that can do it, ranging from free command-line tools to very expensive NLEs. What software do you have, how is the video going to be delivered, is it being saved to a file or are you wanting this to happen to a live stream?

comment What is the best way to make Windows compatible with .MOV format?
VLC or Media Player Classic will play .movs without quicktime installed, but they won't enable you to play them with Windows Media Player. Just make VLC or MPC the default player for .mov files (which you can do during the installation process) and you won't have to choose when you open the files.

comment Is WonderShare's video editor a viable alternative to Camtasia Studio?
Jahshaka is pretty much dead in the water at the moment. KDEnlive is probably the most active project at the moment but there's also kino, lumiera, LiVES and of course Blender.

comment Capturing room audio (audience questions/comments)
or if you have someone to do it, a boom mic for the audience, so you can get the mic close without climbing over people.

comment how to prevent another person to broadcast a video stream on my Adobe media server
You might get a better answer if you describe the problem in your post, rather than just a link.

comment In fcpx, Can I edit source media in time line and have the changes be reflected in the project?
What do you mean the project is not showing your changes? It's a bit unclear what you're asking

comment Is Blue screen a better choice than Green when shooting outdoor to reserve shadows?
Blue screen was mostly used for film work, because the high contrast film they used to do the alpha mask was sensitive only to blue light. Video, including digital video has most resolution in the green channel, so green screen works best with video.
