We look forward to increasing the upload limit ...

Don't. As Margaret Gould Stewart says during her talk: Think carefully about the policy you attach to that content. By simply blocking it, you miss out on new art forms, new audiences, new distribution channels and new revenue streams. They don't want the publicity you would have brought to your 130,000 readers for free, so I don't see why you should ...

YouTube have a process for overriding the content matching system in cases like this. You can dispute the Content ID match (I presume there is an option to claim fair use), and then the copyright owner has to manually review the match and decide if they still want the video taken down. If they do want it taken down then you can take it a step further and ...

I did the following for Google Chrome which does the job: Settings → Advanced → Content settings... → Plug-ins → Manage exceptions... Then create a new exception as [*.]cnn.com and make the behavior "Ask" This will make it such that when you open a CNN article, you have to click the video to run Flash player, which effectively keeps it from ...

Under OS X (and probably on Linux too) the HTML5 video playback uses far less CPU than the Flash video player. This might change when hardware acceleration is released in the OS X Flash Player (currently available as a beta http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/gala/)

Full Disclosure: I am the lead developer on the site I'm mentioning... If you can get the URL to the .FLV file (just google 'how to get FLV URL youtube'), Upload by Transfer is what we call it. That feature gets released next week on our platform (see blog post for details). You provide the URL to the FLV, and the cloud service pulls it off and transcodes ...

Video2mp3 Caches previously downloaded videos, making it the fastest by far. It is even easier to use with the Firefox addon and preserves file names, MP3 only. There are some ads, but you don't even need to look at the page as the audio download starts automatically. Disadvantages: won’t work with some videos on Vevo, lots of ads. abcyoutube (seems to be ...

It should't be possible and I hope it's not. The reason is simple: Let's say you are uploading one really interesting video that goes viral with few millions views and then you are changing it to something completely boring. Wouldn't it be a little bit confusing for the new viewers on why exactly this video got so many views? I think you can make few tweaks ...

Yes it is removed from the blog post as well. These videos are embedded in your blog so there is a direct link to anything that happens on the hosting site. The video will appear to still be viewable on your site, but the moment you click play you should see otherwise. To keep it on your site, you will need to host the video yourself.

Issues with your browser cache. Issue # 1 can be addressed by signing up with an ISP which provides faster internet connectivity. Issue # 3 can be addressed by ...

The first thing to do is ask yourself: Which stations do I actually need? Because NO ONE watches all the stuff that their cable gives them - that's a large number of channels, many of which appeal to a niche audience, and you are unlikely to actually need (or want) them all. Once you have a list of things you want to watch, figure out how many are on that ...

As for the first part of your question, that can be accomplished by adding the URL parameter rel=0 to the YouTube URL embedded in your player HTML code. Like so: <embed width="560" height="349" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VvosvdWfmas?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" allowFullScreen="true" ...

Now that Google seems to be leaning towards "Google Photos" or whatever they're going to call it, you can download your Picasa Web videos.

Find and click on ...

As far as Facebook, the web site, goes -- you can't. They don't provide any way to download the videos via the Facebook website that I know of. One alternative is to use browser extensions that allow you to download videos from, in fact, any web page: Download Helper (Firefox) DownloadHelper is a tool for web content extraction. Its purpose is to ...

YouTube support a number of different options for uploading: WebM - VP8 for video, which really isn't that great MPEG4 (h264) - pretty much the standard AVI - a container format, not a codec MPEG2 (DivX, XviD) - higher filesizes for similar quality as compared to h264 WMV - not used by many outside of Microsoft for good reason FLV - previously used to ...
