In last month's newsletter we introduced the idea of providing more context to video clips. Wrapping captions around video clips for your players provides much richer and more valuable performance support for your player.
We asked readers for their observations and needs. It appears a number of readers would like to use captions more regularly but do not necessarily have the software tools to achieve this simply.
There are some simple tools to add closed captions to video once it is on YouTube. For example
Specifically for coaches, one of the market leaders would appear to be http://www.hudl.com/
An example is provided here but this tool is not cheap! It is clear, however, that this tool has the functionality that coaches value
We list below a list of video editing software packages recommended by coaches- it appears that
LongoMatch: The Digital Coach http://longomatch.ylatuya.es/ is FREE and especially recommended by sports coaches as it can assist coaches' edit and caption!
Also mentioned are these products:
It would be really helpful if readers could share their experience and use of any of these products and if readers had others to add to this list.Can you add any comments, recommendations or Questions in the Comments Section here
Also we are still continuing with our 'social bookmarking' project: to assist readers and demonstrate another means of social bookmarking, as an example, we have established a ' Circle ' on Google + dedicated to showcasing what we believe are the best free video clips on the web which demonstrate ' turning with the ball'.
The group is here
And you are invited to join it, post comments and add comments. The Circle is titled ' Sports Path: Turning with the ball'
To access the Circle you will need a Google account. If you do not have one type
