Flash walk-overs?

There was a comment link to a guy doing walk-over video for websites. I'm pretty sure it was a joke. I lost the link and now I wonder if it was on MeFi at all. [more inside]

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.

Give it a watch and a listen, but not just a listen.

What's the difference in MeFi-comment-worthiness between posting a link to a Youtube video of a song and an actual mp3 of the song itself? [more inside]

Help me find a hilarious IT-related comedy video

Help me! Looking for a post of comedy video, where the entire video is portrayed as looking at the monitor of an IT guy. Hilarity ensues when a guy from marketing asks him to reboot the Web server, and the IT guy interrupts a game of Halo to help. [more inside]

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.

SearchFu: guy flies into a pool.

There was a recent post of a video where a guy slides down the side of a hill, launches off a ramp & lands in a pool. I'm usually pretty good at this but my search-fu is failing me & I can't find it. Help?

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.

VideoFilter Debate: Take 42

VideoFilter Debate: Take 42 - I like Tom Waits. A lot. But YouTube and a link to Wikipedia? Hardly the best of the web.

Video maker comments

This thread, which starts with a YouTube link to a video made by an autistic woman, was fascinating in it's own right, but now has a long comment added by the maker of the video.

Playing time of video in superscript? Annoying!

Is this the first time someone has linked to videos with the playing time in superscript? Am I the only one who finds it really annoying?

How do I search for video links?

Is there a good way to search for video links? It seems that so many have been posted and it's hard to tell from the context of a post what the video is about if they aren't discribed completely. Something that would make it easy to ensure that you are posting a unique video link would be very helpful.

One link video posts?

It seems to be acceptable to post videos with just one link now, but can we get some clarification on what makes a video a good video to post? For example, what makes this video a good FPP?

He's got the whole world in his hands

Anyone remember a video going around the web that showed a guy manipulating satellite imagery--maybe directly in Google Earth--by using hand gestures instead of a mouse? I recall he was using both his hands. It was some kind of a demo video for a new human interface technology. I might have not even found it via MeFi. Ring a bell for anyone?

So, is anyone else sick of all the crappy video links?

So, is anyone else sick of all the crappy video links? Just reposting the latest "wow, look at this"/"isn't this funny" stuff from Google Videos and YouTube gets a bit dull.

Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country

A lot of people comment/bitch when a Google video is posted that "Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country.", which I understand is fustrating.

Maybe users submitting Google video links should consider something suggested here. Looks like a neat and relatively simple fix.

Lost thread: wine crushing catastrophe

Please help me find an old (say, last 18 months) mefi thread: I don't remember what the thread itself was about, but within it, someone posted a link to a video of an accident a newscaster had while standing in a grape-crushing/wine-making vat on a stage. She falls, gets winded, and makes this weird gurgling noise. Almost immediately thereafter, someone posted a "remix" mp3 of the gurgling audio. I've rarely laughed so hard, but cannot think of the right key words to search for so I can share it with others.....

Also, I'm working under the assumption that since I'm asking a metafilter-specific question, that this is more apropos here than on ask.mefi. Please set me straight if I have that wrong.

Hotlinking to movie files

Hotlinking... In the Ryan thread, I listed the direct links to the movie files in response to a request. Afterwards, I wasn't sure if this was proper. I flagged my own post, and searched Metatalk, and didn't find anything for hotlinking.

A single link to Amazon's front page? Really?

Yes, we all await the new Hitchhiker's Guide movie with equal parts fear and excitement. But an FPP linking to Amazon's home page to show the trailer for a new movie is bad form.
