Videonotetaker is a small java/quicktime-based application for writing text-based annotations of a video file. It is very simple, and I can’t get the keyboard controls to work in OSX, but it works well and provides the most basic features. For more advanced annotation it is better to use a tool like Anvil, but I think Videonotetaker can be very useful for students.

  1. I would just like to say, that Videonotetaker , would probably be a really good and useful tool. However, everytime i try to watch a video and take notes, like it is designed to do, a little Error box keeps popping up, saying quicktime error 2048. I wouldnt mind doing whatever i would need to do to make it work correctly, however, there is NO WEBSITE, NO CONTACT INFO, NOTHING that i can see on its home page, to be able to ask someone what needs to be done to address this issue. There is not even a FAQ to review about it. Someone, please help me to be able to use this AWESOME little piece of Software. Thank you in advance for any help in regards to this issue. Contact info is as follows: Thanks again Dale J.

  2. I haven’t used this software myself for a couple of years, and it seems that the project may be abandoned. Too bad, it would be useful to have such a small and practical software. Since it is open source, hopefully someone could take over the project?
