Tip #2: Exporting Address Book Contacts!

This is the second tip today. Contacts in the Address Book would simply be that much better if it would be possible to export the whole list and import them into your web based email. Well a developer partially solved this issue by creating an app that will take all your contacts and export them into a format that is acceptable by GMail (and probably other email service providers, you'll have to check). There is also an advanced mode that let you select only a group within the address book. The instructions for bringing it into GMail are all included with the nice application called Address Book to CSV Exporter 1.3a. It can be downloaded here from MacUpdate. Don't forget to take a look at the tip posted earlier today!

Hi MacGeek! I have a question that doesnt have to deal with this subject, its just a doubt.
Do you know any Video Editor and/or Video Converter ( if its free, better ) that I can work with? It doesnt have to be professional stuff. Another question is: what is the smallest video format? I tried to convert a file to .MP4, it worked, but I coundnt upload it on YouTube. Whats the YouTube video format, do you know? Thanks in advance!

Lucas if your uploading to youtube use imovie and save it under the CD format... Amazing quality and quite compressed, not as compressed as an mp4 though.
