Native American Migration

Native Americans migrated from Asia into North American around 14,000 years ago, but how they arrived in North America is still a bit of a mystery. There are many different theories on how they arrived. We will discuss the two most plausible theories. Press play under the image below.

Image Creation Production Notes:

The image used in this narraration was created using an image from Public Domain Clip Art. These are noncopywrited images. The address to this website is: http://www.pdclipart.org/thumbnails.php?album=71&page=3 . Once the image was downloaded, I used Fireworks to draw the basic information on the image for this project.

Audio Creation Production Notes:

To create the audio for this project I first used Audacity to record the narration. This program can be downloaded at: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/ . After recording the narration, I exported the recording as a uncompressed WAV file using the "Export to WAV" function under file in the main menu toolbar of Audacity.

Export as WAV in Audacity

The audio was then imported into "QuickTime Pro" by selecting "File" from the menu toolbar and clicking on "Open File".

Open File In Quicktime

Once the audio file was opened in QuickTime, then I exported the file as a "MOV" file.

Once I had created the MOV file, I then embedded it into the webpage.

Embedding MOV File Production Notes:

The code that I used to embed this "MOV" file into this webpage was your basic QuickTime script. I built the page in dreamweaver CS3 which converted this script to allow for better play back in Internet Esplorer. The complete script used to embed this "MOV" file is as follows:

AC_AX_RunContent( 'classid','clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B', 'codebase','http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab','width','160','height', '16','src','migrate.mov','autoplay','false','controller','true','type','video/quicktime','pluginspage', 'http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/' ); //end AC code<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="16">
<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="migrate.mov">
<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="false">
<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="true">
<EMBED SRC="migrate.mov" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="16"
AUTOPLAY="false" CONTROLLER="true" TYPE="video/quicktime"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"> </EMBED>
</OBJECT>

This code allows you to embed objects into your web page, such as a controller bar to play your media file without inserting an image. The HTML code itself will create the controller bar. The code above simply states the following:

AC_AX_RunContent( 'classid','clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B', This script specifies an implementation for this object in this case to play a QuickTime "MOV" use clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B.

'codebase','http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab','width','160','height', '16','src','migrate.mov','autoplay','false','controller','true','type','video/quicktime','pluginspage', 'http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/' ); //end AC code The codebase script tells the web browser were to go to obtain the plub in controls. In this case the "cab" file located at http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab . This script then tells the source of the media: the width and height of the control bar; the media will not play automatically; it will show the control bar; specifically that this is a QuickTime movie; an address to reference to the QuickTime plugin web page.

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="16">
This tag allows Internet Explorer to run your embedded file. The "CLASSID" attribute must be used to tell Internet Explorer to use the ActiveX component's GUID to correctly play the file being inserted into the code.

<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="migrate.mov"> The "PARAM" tag allows you to specify the settings for the object you are embedding in the code. In this case we are telling the web browser the source of the embedded media.

<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="false"> This "PARAM" tag specifies that this media will not automatically play.

<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="true"> This "PARAM" tag is specifing that the controller bar will be displayed on the page.

<EMBED SRC="migrate.mov" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="16"
AUTOPLAY="false" CONTROLLER="true" TYPE="video/quicktime"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"> </EMBED>
This "EMBED" tag tells the source of the media: the width and height of the control bar; the media will not play automatically; it will show the control bar; specifically that this is a QuickTime movie; to reference to the QuickTime web page.

PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"> This code tells the browser where to find this plugins web site.

</EMBED> This ends the "EMBED" tag in the html code.

</OBJECT> This ends the "OBJECT" tag in the html code.
