The Virtualization Nation Podcast – Episode 2. Wait, what?


Some of you may remember that, a long while ago, I asked what sort of things you’d like to see in a Virtualization-themed podcast.  Though it’s been over a year since that post, I’ve still been thinking about starting a podcast and talking with other people on my team about getting one together.  The reaction has been positive so far.  There are quite a few folks who seem interested in putting something together.


However, we haven’t gotten down to planning any of the solid details quite yet, so a regular podcast is still aways off.  But there’s really no reason why I have to wait for everyone else… and so, I give you the first episode of The Virtualization Nation Podcast.  Episode 2.


Wait, what?


Well, since I promised all of you some more WIM2VHD videos, and since I’m nearly gotten the whole process down (I wound up buying Sony’s Vegas Movie Studio Platinum, or whatever it’s called… and it crashes a lot.  Like, really a lot.), I deciced to start releasing them as video podcasts.  As such, we’re just going to call the first WIM2VHD video I made ‘Episode 1’, and go from there.


So there you have it:  We’re not ready to start doing this regularly yet, and the format is likely to change around a lot, and we don’t have the whole XML feed thing set up quite yet… but the next episode is ready!


[Update – MSN Video has gone offline, and the videos are no longer available.  I’m looking into other options.  – mikekol]

    Thanks for the walk through, I’m definitely interesting in WIM2VHD. I also appreciate your taking time to make (share) this out.

    Having said that, the video seems to stutter / skip or just stop towards the end… Not sure if you are aware of this or not.

    Cheers,

    John

    [:: Sigh :: Yeah, the audio track at the end of the video is wrong.  It looks like something must have gotten screwed up during one of the many times that Vegas crashed while I was putting this together.  I’m fixing the audio and re-rendering the video now.  The fixed version should be up later today.

    Thanks for pointing this out!

    Shame it’s not available as a (audio only) MP3.

    [ I could certainly make an audio-only version of it, but I’m not sold on the idea that it would be very useful while demonstrating new features.  If you guys think it would still be useful to you, though, I’ll put up an audio file.  Please let me know what you think.

    Also, as we start making more episodes that aren’t just about WIM2VHD, we’ll absolutely transition to an audio-only format where appropriate.

    Thanks – mikekol ]
