Not surprisingly, there are a lot of technology related video podcasts.
- A number of Tech TV alums can be found on programs from Revision 3. One of my favorites is Tekzilla. It features a half hour program once a week answering questions, reviewing hardware, software and demos. There are also daily quick tips.
- Cranky Geeks - features discussions of tech news.
- Lab Rats - my favorite Canadian geek duo. Plus, Andy has a couple of cute cats - Biff and Boo.
- Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks Video Library - you can watch these as streaming videos from the FWP website or you can subscribe via iTunes.
- Rick Steves' Europe Video
- NASA produces a number of audio and video podcasts
- PBS has a lot of video of its programs available from its website. In some cases, you can watch streaming video. There are also audio and video podcasts available of some shows.
- Link TV offers video podcasts of some of its programs including Mosaic - news from the middle east.
- KNHC Vodcasts - produced by Nathan Hale high school students in Seattle. Nathan Hale was my neighborhood high school. If they can do it, why can't your students?
A couple of things to be cautious about RE: video podcasts. There's still the issue of formats. Cranky Geeks offers the following choice of formats: H.264, iPod/PSP, MPEG4, Windows Media, iTunes 320x240, iTunes 640x480. These are generally only going to make a difference if you're planning to use a media player to watch. You'll also find Quicktime formats on occasion. Those require Apple's Quicktime software. Just be sure that you match the format with your player(s).
I'd also be a bit cautious about video podcast directories. One that I looked at showed the top searches as all adult-related. While that's not surprising, these may not be the programs you want to highlight for library use.
