I did the following for Google Chrome which does the job:
Settings → Show Advanced Settings → Content settings... → Plug-ins → Manage exceptions...
Then create a new exception as
and make the behavior "Ask" (or "Block" in recent builds).
This will make it such that when you open a CNN article, you have to click the video to ...
Go to https://photos.google.com/settings and set "Google Drive / Show Google Drive photos & videos in your Photos library" to "ON";
Go to https://www.youtube.com/upload and on the right hand side, you should see a option to import videos from Google Drive;
Click the "import" button, click on your video and choose select.
There's an extension for Chrome, called "Audio Only Youtube" that does just that:
(NB: this also allows you to scrobble the tracks to Last.fm, eg: with this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lastfm-scrobbler/hhinaapppaileiechjoiifaancjggfjm )
I wrote to CNN today to ask if there is a way to turn off autoplay, possibly by logging in and setting it in a preference. Here is the reply:
Thanks for contacting CNN. We do not offer the ability to disable the
auto-play feature of the video and we appreciate you taking the time
to voice your opinion. I will make sure this information is escalated
From YouTube's Recommended upload encoding settings (Advanced):
Note that the bitrates below are recommendations for uploads. Audio playback
bitrate is not related to video resolution.
So it seems audio quality is the same, irrespective of the selected video resolution. However, the audio quality will be as good (or bad) as the original ...
This question haunted me as well, and all the available options either didn't work or didn't fit... So I made my own: YouCast
It's free and open sourced.
It works for both channels and playlists.
Supports both audio and video podcasts.
Sorts by popularity.
You usually need to check the "Allow YouTube to collect cookies" option for it to work.
I've been using it with my slow DSL service and for things you want to hear and don't care about video, it works great.
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.
The option to upgrade a video to 1080p is there, but available only to Plus and PRO members:
Why can’t I upgrade my video to 1080p anymore?
Good news: Plus and PRO members no longer need to manually upgrade their videos to 1080p. If you’ve uploaded a 1080p source file, we’ll automatically make both a 720p and 1080p version. (Please note that Basic ...
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 capture ...
NASA TV has switched to H.264 video over either Flash (for most browsers) or HTML5 (for iOS).
If Flash plugin is unacceptable, you'll need to fake your userAgent as an iPad and go to http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/nasatv_live_iphone.html
Unfortunately, you won't be able to replace an old video with a new one and keep the original view count, comments or ratings. Instead, you may want to try using annotations or link to the new version of the video from your old video.
Google plus is not available anymore.

VLC Media Player (v1.1 on-wards) can play YouTube videos without affecting the sound pitch and without having to download the video separately.
Here are the steps:
Go to File -> Open Network Stream menu option.
Paste in the main YouTube video URL (Example URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew_tdY0V4Zo).
Hit the Play button. Change the video playback ...
YouTube does automatically change the quality based on the player size by default, which means watching it in full screen will increase bandwidth usage.
If you want to stop YouTube from automatically changing it to a higher quality version, then log in to YouTube, go to Settings → Playback in your profile. Then choose "I have a slow connection. Never play ...
This is not a bug. YouTube is experimenting with a new player which is resizing the Player Dynamically. Read here: YouTube Experiment
There's a new YouTube experiment that changes the video player's size,
depending on the browser window's size. When resizing Chrome's window,
YouTube switches from 360p to 480p and to 720p, while the player gets
As of this writing Facebook supports HTML5 video but is still using Flash for Safari browsers. Why? Who knows. (source)
Works fine without Flash if you're using Firefox or Chrome. For now replacing the "www" with "m" in the video URL as described by Hjulle is the only workaround in Safari unless...
If you enable the Develop menu in Safari (Advanced ...
Here's my Windows batch script that supports all latest Periscope updates, plus has an option to download multiple replays, record live streams, convert .ts to .mp4 and rotate it, if necessary.
Uses console tools curl, aria2, jq, ffmpeg and two bat scripts by Dave Benham - getTimestamp and JREPL (big thanks for them).

It's because those GIFs are MP4s coded with high levels (6.0 etc.) that normal hardware can't play.
