Ok, perhaps someone can help me, I already have an mp3 file of speech.

I want to create a video of something which includes that MP3 file so I have a speaking video - any ideas what I need to accomplish this please?

Let me see if I have this straight, you have a sound file in mp3 format and you want to shoot a video and add the sound file as a voice over?

You'll need software that can do this, do a search for "video editing software", there are many free ones that will do the trick. If you want to get more bells and whistles, you may have to pay for the program.

You also don't necessarily need to shoot a video for this. I've watched many presentations that are just a series of screenshots with an audio track and they're often just as good as a full video.

Hi Bradley - that is exactly what I want to do - integrate an mp3 type audio track along with a picture and create a video which I can add to Youtube - any ideas how, pm me if someone wants to name a certain product.

driller if you have windowsXP or Vista there is something built in called "Windows Movie Maker"

It is pretty easy to use and like I said if you have XP or Vista then it is already installed.

Should in in the "Start" menu under "Programs"

Hi Demaestro - I used Windows Movie Maker - it is very good.

You can't add hyperlinks to video, that would be done with something like flash.

Hi, I have been looking for video editing software - is video editing software not able to add hyperlinks then?

driller41,

Most of the videos you will find online that have the ability to add links are made with Flash like on YouTube.

You may want to check out YouTube's site to learn about their Video Annotations [youtube.com]. I think this may save you some time.

Diller to put this in perspective it's like asking can you add a hyperlink to an image.

You can make it a hyperlink in an HTML page if you wrap the image in an anchor tag. It's the HTML that is creating the link not the image. The image is just a resource compiled into a HTML page, by itself...no link.

Same for standard video formats, it has to be added by some other means. Any video editing software worth using is going to edit video, creating web content like a flash file with hyperlinks may be an extra feature in some applications but generally speaking they won't have that ability.

Most video tools that try to do many things usually fail miserably at doing anything good.
