How to start a Youtube at exact minute and second

June 9, 2010

You can plug any YouTube URL into this web page

and you can set any minute/second you want to get a URL that will FF to the very point you want people to see.

You can always just append this hash tag:


To the end of any YouTube URL and do it yourself, though many prefer to use the above link since it’s a lot easier to fidget with the code.

For example:

Note that on FB it does not seem to work on links posted directly on a Wall, it just starts the video at the beginning, but rather only in a ‘comment’ to someone.else’s post, like I did here.

At about 2 minutes 36 seconds into this segment of “Demon Seed” the supercomputer “Proteus” REFUSES to tell mankind where to drill for oil and minerals under the ocean on the grounds that such activity would be DANGEROUS and therefore telling mankind where to dig would be UNETHICAL. I posted the link to this 1970s sci-fi movie several days ago but it seems that no one finds it significant (or perhaps they just dont give a crap.)

Amazing Youtube Video Editing – Visit

May 18, 2010

Wanda is a beginner (3 months) but she is rapidly reaching a professional level.

Wanda uses iMovie right now. She has Final Cut Express (FCE), which costs 90% less than FCP.

The downside of FCE is that it doesn’t natively edit video shot at 24fps which Canon just rolled out a few months ago after a year of screaming from end-users 24fps gives video a more ‘cimematic’ look.

The latest version of Quicktime allows you to do a ‘save as’ with video and can downconvert 1080p to Apple’s version of 1080p and 720p/480p or for the iPhone.

Wanda took a 4 gigabyte 1080p file and converted to the iPhone vers today and it got it down to 80 megbytes, a 50x file reduction.

480p is seen as HQ instead of HD so she generally stick to 720p conversions.
