Tutorial - get rid of background noise

In this video I show you how to get rid of annoying background noise that's in your video, with the free and open source audioeditor Audacity. Its available for Windows/Mac and Linux and you can find it at

I use Eemma's video where she complaints about the Mac support as an example but it should work on any video where the noise is very consistent, like a lot of webcams have.

My encoder won't get past 9:35 minutes so that's why its cut off, but the quality is way better than the WMV-encoder I used to have, and I don't say anything important after that anyway.

ipod Linux and Rockbox install tutorial

How to install ipod linux and rockbox.

There is a new update for XP and Vista that won't allow the ipod patcher to work, causing the 'unable to modify firmware' error. If you have this update installed, you will not be able to install ipod linux.
You will no longer get the unable to find kernel error, but you will still have to manually install it.
Please read this before asking questions.
