WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

HELP!

Dear folks,

I am sending this out to all of the CFZ and Gonzo email groups, as well as the CFZ and Gonzo blogs! This is because this is a problem that has totally got me stumped. As most, if not all, of you will know, back in August we relaunched our monthly webTV show ‘On The Track’. We really want to expand the number of people we are working with, and so will be starting to record interviews we do online using Skype or Facebook messenger. All very good so far. But the big question is:

HOW THE BLINKING FLIP DO WE RECORD VIDEO FROM SKYPE OR FACEBOOK MESSENGER???

This is something that has been bugging me for months, and it will do my blood pressure a hell of a lot of good if someone out there can tell me how to do it.

Love and peas,

Jon

OBS STUDIO is a free program that will do that fairly well without constantly harassing you with ads. However, you will need a computer with fairly high-end graphics capabilities as well as a lot of free memory, but the end product is worth it because you can include your Skype and Facebook video chat in the same scene along with a green-screened host and live stream that feed if you have enough bandwidth to do so.

Good luck!
