  1. Tim, what program do you use to edit your videos so that you an add the title, credits and captions? These type of videos are what Microsoft Expression Encoder is good for although I got it for our department at the university mainly for live encoding from a capture card and publishing to Windows server for live streaming of events. For live encoding, Expression is not as good as the older Windows Media Encoder because too many little things cause the whole program to crash. Maybe they will fix it with Expression 4. The videos are a nice addition.

    • I have used Windows Live Movie Maker for all of my videos. It is quick, easy and free with Windows 7.
