OMFG!!

  • Honestly, I consider myself to be failry tech-savvy, what with my pretty bloody comprehensive IT background, although possibly a bit out of date these days.

    Even so.

    One of my latest projects:  Audio books.  Specifically making one.

    I now have a nice little USB microphone, like all the pop stars use (well), and I've managed to find a decent sound editing bit of software, and now I just want to make a video* comprising of about 5 minutes or me reading, but only showing a single picture all the while.

    And can I find an app to do it????  Can I frack!!!   :shakefist:

    Well, I can, but they all only play for about 5 seconds per image, and as I only want to show one image....

    There was one I found,  a website actually, that seemed to work, until I pressed save, and then it wanted money, which is not something I wish to do for this.

    So, anyone any ideas?  My laptop is Android, in case that makes a difference.


    *The video is not going to be part of the full 'audiobook' experience, but for various reasons I wish to do this as an interim milestone.

  • I used audacity windows movie maker back when I briefly dove into audiobooking, but that doesn't help you at all if you're on android.  A quick google returned these linux options, do report back if anyof them are any use to you.  https://itsfoss.com/best-video-editing-software-linux/

  • Mmm, he even put them on Youtube a good while back. Saint Reads or something. That was a fair few years ago though, there's bound to be some more programs now though?  :shrug:

  • Awesome, I look forward to hearing them.  Shall we take bets on what his voice sounds like?  I'm going for surprisingly well-spoken, with the occasional monkey screech.
