'Please tell me how to download a UStream video?' -- Kat
'Hey, does anyone know how to convert a Ustream video to MP3 since I want to play it on my iPhone.' -- Richie
The most annoying issue gripping a majority of Ustream users is that, it fails to offer any convenience to save videos offline, not to mention download videos from Ustream or convert Ustream video to MP3 and other audio formats. Yeah, I know many users like Kat and Richie must be very discouraged at the fact. But, Kat and Richie, I'm happy to tell you that, here is a way out. Doremisoft Video Converter for Mac (Video Converter for Windows) is an all-in-one solution to solve both video download and conversion problems at the same time. To put it another way, this Ustream video converter for Mac can not only help us to download videos from Ustream, but can help rip audio from Ustream videos and save it in .mp3 or other formats as well. So, there is no reason not to take advantage of this almighty program, right? OK, let's jump to see how to fix the problem one by one as below :
How to Download and Convert Ustream Videos Effortlessly
Download & Run the Program
The first and formost thing is to download Doremisoft Ustream video converter for Mac, set it up to the Mac by clicking the installation file and then run the program to enter its interface.
Paste URL of the Video and Begin to Download
Open web browsers, navigate to Ustream website, and then choose the video that you want to download. In the address bar, highlight the URL of the selected video and copy it. Back to the interface of Ustream Video Converter for Mac, click the second 'Download' button, you will be directed to the download section. Right there, press the 'Paste URL', you will see the URL of your selected video displayed in the workbench window. In the meanwhile, the program will start to download the video automatically.
Import Downloaded Ustream Videos
As soon as the videos have been downloaded, click the 'Import All' button, the videos will be loaded into the program, waiting to be converted. You can press the play icon to preview the contents.
Choose MP3 as the Output Format
Press the 'Convert to' button at the bottom of the interface, you will see a format list. On the list, there are handfuls of video and audio formats. Apparently, to convert Ustream Videos to MP3, you should choose 'Common Audio'--'MP3(*.mp3)' as the output format. Moreover, the 'setting' option allows you to customize the audio parameters such as encoder, sample rates, bitrate, etc.
Click Start to Convert Ustream Video to MP3
Finally, press the 'Save to' button to choose a favorable location for saving the converted audio file. After that, simply click on the 'Start' button to get the audio conversion started. Basically, it won't take you much time if the file size is not large.
I feel that my EC & I 831 course is going well so far. On Tuesdays, we have been using Elluminate and it has been a rock solid tool. On Wednesdays, we have been using Adobe Connect, and unfortunately, the experience has been unsatisfactory. Therefore, I have been looking for and experimenting with tools that could be used to provide audio conferencing in combination with video and image casting.
Note: This tutorial is for someone wanting to set up/direct/facilitate a conversation. It is a complicated process. I do not want to confuse my students here. Participating in such a conference is a much easier process, and participants do not need to know these setup details.
Rob, Kyle and I played with WizIQ web conferencing. It is free, it does audio conferencing well, but is quite limited in its functionality. It does not provide for screen sharing/casting. It is not quite what I need for my students.
I’ve found a solution-of-the-day which is a combination of Skype, Ustream, Camtwist and other free tools. Using the following information, you will be able to:
- – stream a Skype conversation to Ustream (2 to 100 participants),
– record the video and audio of the conversation,
– project your screen, or portion of your screen,
– broadcast video files through Ustream, and
– incorporate a number of useful (and not so useful) video effects.
Here is what you need:
- – A Mac Computer (OS X).
– The latest version of Skype and a Skype account (free).
– A Ustream account (free).
– Line In from Rogue Amoeba (free).
– Soundflower (free).
– Camtwist (free).
Step 1: Install Skype, Line In, Soundflower, Camtwist, and be sure you have a Ustream and Skype account. Restart your computer.

Step 2: Start Line In. Select your audio input. In my case, I am using the audio input based in my iSight camera. This could be your “built-in line input” or a USB mic if you have one. Then, be sure that your output is to “Soundflower (2ch)”. Be sure to select “Pass Thru”.
Step 3: Launch Soundflower (I think the application is actually called Soundflowerbed.app). In the Soundflower settings, change the Soundflower (2ch) settings to “Built-in Line Output”. I strongly recommend that this should be set to headphones or you will likely get disastrous echoing effects. The Soundflower (16ch) settings should remain on “None (Off)”.
Step 4: Go to your Apple System Preferences. Set your Output and Input settings to “Soundflower (2ch)”.
Step 5: Launch Skype. In the Skype Preferences Menu (Skype -> Preferences), click on Audio. Set all Audio settings to “Soundflower (2ch)”.

Step 6: Go to Ustream. When you login, you will see a “My Shows” option. If you don’t have a show, click on “Create New Show” on the right-hand side. Fill in all of the necessary information and tags. Note, there are a number of tabs that are important, with required information in each section. My assumption here is that you already have used Ustream, or that you can pick it up quickly. If not, go here.

Step 7: In Ustream, click on “Broadcast Now”. You don’t need to broadcast at this time, but this is where you will change your audio and video settings. You will have to allow Camera and Microphone access. Then, adjust your Video Source appropriately (you will know if have set it correctly if you can see yourself), and then set your Audio Source to “Soundflower (2ch)”.
Step 8: Call someone on Skype. You can bring in one other person for an audio conference, or (I am told) as many as 10 total. For more people, you could use the Skypecasts service although this has NEVER worked for me … and I mean NEVER, not once out of many attempts. Perhaps others have had better success.
Step 9: Once you have your call initiated in Skype, click on the “Start Broacast” button in your small Ustream window (the one you see above). Note, you can record the session here (“Start Recording”). If you have done everything correctly, Ustream is now streaming the entire Skype conversation (all parties) and thus, will be able to record everything.
Important note: If you are hearing echoing at this point, it is likely because participants have the volume on in their Ustream and it is feeding back into the Skype conversation. People who are talking in Skype should mute (or lower the volume in) their Ustream sessions. Volume controls are found on the Ustream session pages.
Step 10:Fansadox. If you want to go beyond talking heads on Ustream, Camtwist allows you to change the virtual video device so that you can broadcast parts of your screen, produce visual effects (e.g., text tickers, RSS feeds, imagery, etc.), or broadcast videos previously saved to your computer. This is a great tool that has a lot of potential for conferencing sessions.
Bonus: As I mentioned, it is possible to connect 100 (or even more) people via Skype conference. While Skypecasts has not worked well for me, I think I have found a reasonably inexpensive pay service which does this quite well. High Speed Conferencing provides a service where up to 100 people can connect via audio-conferencing. Individuals are able to call in through a Skype number or through a toll-free (for the end user) telephone number. The facilitator of the conference can view the connected calls, can mute audio on any call(s), and can drop people from the conference. It is not a very sophisticated interface, but the system worked very well, and I was able to test this with up to 15 concurrent users.
I hope all of this information makes sense, and is accurate. If anyone attempts to use this information and there are any errors, let me know and I will be sure to update. I’d love to know if others can get this working.
