    Disneyland Project Help Please

    I'm doing a powerpoint presentation on the history of Disneyland. Does anyone have the audio of the interview in which Walt talks about "Daddy's day"? Thanks!

    Hey I am doing a power point presentation on Walt Disney! And I sort of got lucky because we were assigned people. Like for example one person got assigned the Moon Landing Controversy. Sombody else got assigned the JFK/CIA assasination Controversy, and other got signed Cesar Chavez, bascially people and events that have changed america.

    I can't convert the realplayer file to go in the powerpoint. I'd have to pay. I'm sorry but does anyone have the sound in a format that powerpoint accepts?

    Record the audio using GoldWave to tap the sound card. That should do it.

    P.S. I am working on an Hon. Thesis on Disney.

    I just did a Power Point for my 5th graders. They had to do a PP presentation on a state of their choice. They had to do things like the state bird, state motto, rivers etc.

    I didn't want to steal anyone's state for an example, so I adapted it for Disneyland.

    'Allo there!

    Found this site while trying to soak up the time between when I got home from work and when I leave with my wife and son to D-land. Yay Pirates! Yay people who take lots of pics!

    First the boring alert... this is a long how-to.

    Second the "tsk". (This isn't directed to the poster of this question but to everyone else that reads this and thinks 'Hmmm'.)

    It is no joke whatsoever that Disney is rabid about copyright, I have seen the forms. PLEASE do yourselves a favor before "ripping" the audio from a parade / ride and sharing it with the world.

    Also, it is my opinion that they have the right to be. I have worked in animation (no, not them) and I fully understand the absolute fortune it takes to create audio. Disney deserves the money that is due. Please be responsible and grown up about this.

    Anywho, in the interest of education away with the soapbox and here is what you can do.

    Go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ to download Audacity, an open source software that allows you to record audio on your pc/mac. In the download section there are two choices, stable and beta. I suggest downloading and using the stable unless you decide you HAVE to have the audio in a .mp3 format, in that case use the beta. More on that below.

    It is a very powerful tool that looks a little scary when you open it up for the first time. Ignore everything that looks different from a tape recorder. The only thing you need to check is in "Edit => Preferences" or Ctrl-P. Look at the I/O tab, the I(nput)/O(utput). You want to make sure that your soundcard is selected as the Input. If you hit "record" at any point and all you see is a flat "sound" line... go look here again. If you get spikes and then don't hear anything when you play it back... this is also the place to check for that. Once again your sound card is your friend.

    Q' up and start what you want to record (it can help to get both the RealPlayer and the Audacity windows side by side) then click over to Audacity and hit the red record button. Let the audio play through, and then hit the stop button.

    You will now need to export it.

    The stable version of Audacity will only allow you to export a .wav (uncompressed) file from the "File" menu EVEN THOUGH it looks like you can also 'port a .mp3 (compressed). You can't, unless you install a LAME encoder - stupid geek acronym/joke here (LAME Ain't an Mp3 Encoder).

    ((BORING ALERT - The name is a tip of the hat to Linux (Linux "GNU" - "Linux = GNU and GNU stands for Gnu is Not Unix") and lawsuits both at the same time. There is a wiki article if you want more of the back story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAME - prepared to be both enlightened and bored. AND so I don't get flamed by other nerds HERE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU is the backstory to GNU/Linux. Ok, now I'M bored. ))

    Ahem, bottom line: if you NEED a mp3, install the Beta. If you don't, install the stable. How do you tell the diff? It's all about space constraints. WAV files can be HUGE. I say "CAN" not necessarily "WILL". Try it that way first. If you find it doesn't fit on the CD you are taking along, get the beta. They will sit side by side happily on your computer.

    Good luck with your report! (I hear the coffee pot brewing so that must mean it's time to go soon!!!)
