Seeking ragga video

I seem to recall several years ago a post to the blue that featured a YouTube video of some ragga/dancehall song from the 80s. The song lyrics and video featured a dreadlocked Jamaican who encountered a policeman. I think the policeman called the first guy "Dreadlocks." Dreadlocks claimed to be transporting vegetables to town, but the policeman thought he had marijuana and arrested him. I have tried many Google search strategies and haven't found this. Did it really appear on the blue or am I imagining things?

Genre name for the glitch/repition video art involving spongebob/sonic

Genre name for the glitch/repition video art involving spongebob/sonic Hello, I'm trying to find an old metafilter post that was all about a genre of youtube videos. They were very glitchy, repetitive, I remember Carlton from the Fresh Prince dancing inappropriately to Spongbob videos being shown on the television. Spongebob was a recurring theme in fact. They used a lot of scenes from that cartoon. It was quite dirty, and funny. It had a particular genre name but I just can't remember it and I can't hit the right set of search terms in Google...

video

Why don't we have in-line video for non-members? I typically avoid sending posts with great videos in them to (like this) to non-members because they will just see a wall of text without being able to play videos in-line. Would it be possible to add the in-line video player for everyone who visits metafilter?

Can we maybe start trying to label video links in posts?

Could we maybe try to be a little better at labeling links that go to videos? Not everybody is in a position to view video content at all times and it might be nice to have a little advance warning. [more inside]

Painting with slices of video

Stop click and listen

I seem to post a lot of FPPs that revolve around podcast or other audio content these days, and It's gotten me curious... how often do you stop and listen to the content in links of that kind? Is it more or less likely than the chances you would watch a video?

Help me find the crazy mad max bicycle man. I think they were naked?

There was an old post on the blue maybe a year or more ago that linked to a music video that featured an old man riding an overloaded, crazy bicycle to some sort of bizzarro world encampment in the woods. I think everyone was naked or shirtless. Someone took the music out and added foley, and it became a surreal masterpiece of a short film. I can't find it now and it's driving me crazy. Anyone remember it?

Stupid map

Just one of those stupid "I can't find it!" questions - does anyone remember a Youtube video of a map being drawn whilst narrated by a guy from a country in northern Europe who explained what other countries seemed like to people from his country? It seemed sort of dumb, I know - like "this is X country, they only eat salad... this is Y country, they are very dirty and like parrots..." - and the map was a silly badly-drawn MS Paint type thing. I know I saw it on Metafilter somewhere, but I'm also certain I didn't see it in an FPP... and search is turning up nothing.

The MeTa is Available For All to Enjoy!

We've discussed it at least once before, but perhaps we should have another go at the topic of video or content that is unavailable outside the USA, or at least give the derail (Which I contributed to, unfortunately) in this FPP somewhere to go.

Help me see this youtube video in Canada.

The youtube video in this FPP is not available in my country (Canada) due to copyright restrictions. I've watched it before and would like to watch it again. Can someone either point me to it somewhere else online where it might work (maybe on youtube at another account), or at least tell me the proper title or some info I can use to search myself? Thanks.

Ancient MeFi Octopus Post Update

Back in 2003, I posted a link to a video that showed an octopus transforming itself to look like its surroundings. If you read the thread, there was some doubt about it and I think we all wished that web video was better at the time. Well, a friend posted a link to a TED talk recently that shows this same octopus at a much higher resolution. [more inside]

who was that guy, the one with the plane...?

UpdateFilter: while I was waiting in line for an iPhone with my friend yesterday (for him not for me) I was catching up on a little work. I was showing my friend the MeFi admin interface and someone looked over my shoulder and said "is that MetaFilter?" I said yes, was he a member? He said no but a video that he had made got linked on MeFi last February and had catapulted him to mini-stardom for a few weeks. He gave me some backstory on the movie....

video embedding (flash)

The new flash media player from Jeroen Wijering can show mp3s, SWF and FLV video, photos and RSS/XSPF/ATOM playlists. Should MetaFilter allow FPPs to use this? Are inline video comments/playlists a feature to avoid?

suicide video link

This comment links to a video of a real life suicide without warning (other than "I'm a terrible person"). Normally I'd flag this and move on, but this is possibly the worst thing I've ever seen on metafilter and I'd like to see it deleted as quickly as possible.

New stuff on MeFi.

I finally fixed this, I gussied up the preferences page (more readable, easier to use), and I added inline magical youtube video streaming, which mostly works (enable it then click the icons you see on posts). Full explanation of the YouTube feature.
