It's weekend, time to try Video Article Robot : Registration, getting started are straight forward. You can quickly grasp the process after watching the introduction tutorial. Picking an article from Ezine, splitting into paragraphs and summarizing is no pain. The Big advantage is the large backgrounds and voices. In less than 30 minutes (first time) you can produce a decent video clip. The distribution capabilities to video sites is amazing. The only shortcoming was the quality of voice over, but I have enough reasons to consider using this auto robot. Thanks Eduardo for sharing
