The new guy

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by ReverendFuzzy, Jan 12, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone... just a quick note to let you know there's a new guy on
    the list (me).
    I've been making video on and off since the 80's... much of my work
    has been on television in the past, but nothing you've probably ever
    seen outside the deep south. My recent stuff is mostly short subjects
    and humor videos that'll see on YouTube, and other places. Talk @
    y'all later.

    Out of interest do you have a youtube address where we can view on of your
    videos? Do you mean your videos have been on television or you have a job
    working for television?

    The videos I've created have been on television... for a while, I was
    working as an independant contractor, operating the studio equipment
    for those who needed a crew at a descent price... at one point, I was
    running 3 different shows.

    I wish I could work for a station... you practically have to wait for
    someone to DIE, before you can get on the staff.

    i took a look at your video on YouTube it does get he message across
    clearly with mainly words displayed in the video, I was hoping hat you have
    a more scenic video with some action.

  10. Well, when I go to a YouTube page, I *always* think that the big
    picture in the main part of the frame is the video that the URL refers
    to.

    Looks like I am just as naive as Brian :)

  12. --> NOTICE: The following is for reference purposes, and is NOT saying
    anyone in particular is stupid or such <--

    Ok, for future (or maybe futile) reference, any time the main .com
    URL, followed by a slash, and a userID is a link to someone's CHANNEL.
    Example: http://www.youtube.com/reverendfuzzy0

    A YouTube URL that starts with "http://youtu.be", followed by what
    seems to be random alphanumerics is a direct link to a video in the
    YouTube database.
    Example:

    ....the more you know. :)

    i have noticed more of your videos...didn't scroll down last time. I liked
    the ghost in the house video.

  14. And then how would I know which video or videos you had in mind for us?

    Obviously a direct link to a single video is easier to deal with in
    that respect, but if you really intend for someone to see a particular
    video or certain videos in a set, and you want to use a channel, it
    would be helpful to provide some guidance to those of us who don't know
    about channels. Others might very well make the same mistake that Brian
    and I made before.

    But now that you have told me (us) about channels, I can decide how
    I'll present the information when I have several videos to point to. I
    might even decide to continue to do as I have done before, list each
    URL separately and precede each link by a remark or two about the video
    it directly points to.

    Of course, I don't yet know how to make the best use of channels, so
    maybe I'll change my mind after I learn more. Or maybe not, thinking
    about how I misinterpreted your link, and who my audience might be...

    I was using an iPad to access YouTube, the iPad has its own YouTube app
    that starts up when ever a you goto an YouTube address and the view on the
    YouTube app is different than the view for the YouTube site when you access
    it from a browser using a computer.

    I just wanted to take a look at a few of your videos to find out what type
    of videos you are making.

    I hope it's clear that I do accept your explanation of channels, which
    (obviously, I hope) was a new concept to me. I'm just not yet sure how
    I might use them myself, which is a totally separate issue.

  17. I guess it's a good thing I didn't mention how to embed a youtube
    video... I'd have ended civilization as we know it. :)

  18. OTOH, that might be a good thing to accomplish, so please, go ahead &
    mention it :)

    If this starts a political discussion, then I have two responses
    prepared:

    1. I'll say QED

    2. I'll stop following this newsgroup.

    Or maybe not ;-)

  19. Ok, lets try it, and see what happens....

    1. take the normal "direct to a video in thier database" url,
    IE:

    2. Add a bit of inline frame HTML code to it, in a text editor, like
    this....

    <iframe width="420" height="315"
    src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/nuAdFLn6tlw"
    frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>
    </iframe>

    3. Save it as an HTML page (aka: .htm extension)

    4. Open the page in your browser.

    Ok, are we still alive? Or just confused beyond recognition? :)

  20. Looks like civilization is about to end :)

    That was very easy and it worked like a charm.

    Well, I did make two changes.

    1. I chose the URL of a folk dance video I had previously looked at.

    2. I saved the file as .html rather than .htm :)

    Thanks - clearly there's more to YouTube than is dreamt of in your
    philosophy, Horatio.
