Upload Video + Upload Image = Download Mixed Video
Based on VideoStir technology you don’t need a “green screen software” in order to get a “green screen footage” effect. With VideoStir’s new experimental feature you can take a simple video you make with any solid color background (no need for a “green screen background”) and choose one of your images (company logo? at the beach? Last trip to NY?) . In less than 5 minutes you will get a new clip in which your image is replacing your video’s background. There is no need for a “video editing software” and you don’t have to download any chromakey software. You just upload one video and one image and you get a video mix of them both.
You can take the result and put it on YouTube if you like.
A few example use cases:
Selling a house? Use the house photo as the background of your video.
Filming a corporate video to your employees? Use the company’s logo as your video replaced background.
Promoting a vacation? Make the resort photo be the background of your video.
It’s a DIY solution and takes 5 minutes to get the result mix clip.
Look for “Replace video background – (experimental)” feature on VideoStir website.
You can now create and add a virtual spokesperson video to your “WIX web page”.
Using VideoStir’s DIY automatic web spokesperson service, it will only take you 5 minutes from the minute you decide to, until the time the video is embedded on your “WIX website”. Adding a virtual spokesperson with a transparent background to your WIX HTML5 page (or flash page) can be done using “WIX HTML editor”.
This short clip shows you how to embed a video to your WIX page using the WIX editor:
“WIX WIX WIX” – now comes with VideoStir’s DIY web spokesperson
VideoStir presented their product in the the Video Power Convention.
Visitors were filmed in front of a white wall and saw their video floating with a transparent background on top of their website in less than 5 minutes.
The company got great reviews!
All businesses websites have a “business video” or “business demo video” to describe their products and advantages, however producing such a video could be a cumbersome process that takes a long time to produce and costs a lot of money. That’s why you will normally need the help of a video production company.
With VideoStir you can add an up-to-date website spokesperson to your website. It only takes a few minutes to create so that anyone without any technological knowhow could create and embed such a “walk on video” clip in minutes. You don’t need to call anyone or wait days for the results, you shoot a basic video and get it to float on your website in minutes (It’s automatic and still for free).
This clip (can come as an addition to the business video) can focus the visitors on your advantages and stay up-to-date with the latest news (holidays, deals, offers etc).
Until VideoStir started running their service, it seems that the only way you could quickly remove your video background or replace your video background was to rely on a green screen studio.
Well now it is much more simple. You can take a video that has any solid color wall and remove your video background in less than 5 minutes without a green screen. It’s all automatic so you don’t have to install anything or become an expert. You get a “flash transparent background” clip that you can be used as a web spokesperson or for any other purpose.
This “no green screen” approach (although green as any color will work just fine) also allows VideoStir to introduce a new experimental product. You can now “replace video background” with an image of your choice (company’s logo, at the beach etc) – It’s all automatic. You upload a clip and a background image and you automatically get a result “mixed” video with your image as background.
You don’t need to install any “video spokesperson software” or learn how to be a video editor. You just upload, tune and enjoy the result.
It’s fun to play with and it’s free as part of a free trial period you get for every clip. www.videostir.com
With VideoStir’s technology you can now easily create and add a “walk on video” (web spokesperson) to your facebook page. Like in this example from their facebook page
The floating clip will float with a transparent background on top of the facebook page and will help you welcome your visitors and fans. It’s a great way to redirect your traffic to the most relevant pages that you want them to visit. You can just set any webpage URL (internet address) into the clip and say “click on me to get to the latest deal” or “click on me to learn more” etc. The clip can be created in VideoStir’s “Do it yourself” approach within a few minutes and all of its features can be easily configured without any technological knowledge.
Using video to improve your facebook page sales and conversion rates was never as easy as it is with VideoStir. Instead of finding ways of “how to embed a video into your facebook page?” you can make your business’s facebook fan page be special – the first facebook page that has a sophisticated online video that floats on top of your webpage content.
So now that you can add a “web spokesperson” with a transparent background to your business’s facebook page – all of these questions that people keep asking, seem to have a clear answer:
How to improve the sales from my business’s fan page?
How do I get fans on facebook?
How to market with facebook?
How can I make a facebook page be more interesting and creative?
Of course – VideoStir is not directly related to facebook or has partnership relations with the company in any way – It’s just another clip you can add you facebook’s fan page just like you add a regular video.
Now that you can create a video spokesperson for your website in 5 minutes, you need to learn how to embed your video to your WordPress website – luckily the process is very easy.
Embedding your video on a WordPress website can be done in two ways:
Copying the 3 embedding lines that you got after uploading your video and getting to VideoStir’s embed page (step 3) . You just need to paste the 3 lines on one of your WordPress pages/posts – just be sure to use the HTML view of the page (the text page has a special tab for HTML)
You can install our VideoStir WordPress plugin, by either searching for VideoStir on your WordPress “plugin search” text box, or by installing it directly from WordPress.org website: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/videostir-spokesperson/installation/ . After you install the VideoStir plugin you will see a small VideoStir icon on your left menu bar. Click on the “add video” option and paste the 3 lines there. You will have a check-box for each page/post you have on your website, just decide where you want it to run on.
In both ways, adding a web spokesperson clip to your website is easier than embedding a Youtube clip to WordPress (since you don’t need to position the clip in a specific page division – it floats as an overlay on top of the page).
Here is how you manage your clips after embedding your clips using VideoStir WordPress plugin:
