    Review videos are cool

    A dude over at the BetaOne forums posted a Video review of longhorn with a text-to-speech speaker. Very nice review, but I'm actually even more interested in his review concept! A very nice budget solution for producing video reviews, even though I's personally would do the voiceover myself.

    He used Natural Voices for text generation, but I know something which is better: Rhetorical Systems rVoice

    I think this is very cool. This video-stuff really works well for reviews and demoing applications. LearnVisualStudio.NET has been producing fantastic video tutorials for quite some time now, and the videos easily surpasses any book in terms of speed learning. Overture.com also has a very nice Flash demo movie demonstrating their services (with a nice speaker voice to boot!) - they are down at the moment, though.

    edit: Overture demo here:

    Do you have any nice examples of use of Audio/Video on the web?

    Oh, and another one:

    The MSDN .NET Show also has a very interesting way to present video. Make sure you click the "View Transcript" button in the video viewer window.

    We do a lot of video learning internally to the company (i.e. on our intranet). Mostly it's just standard stuff - taking a screencap of a PowerPoint presentation and ripping it to Windows Media. However it is a very effective tool.
    that's me!
