I'd like to watch some Minecraft PE (not regular Minecraft) let's play videos with decent production values that aren't narrated by 12 yearolds and/or super silly. Are there any? [more inside]
I've been asked to ''Live Facebook'' an industry event tomorrow night, and I have no idea what I'm doing! I'm usually good at tech related things, but this one has me stumped. Details within... [more inside]
My business is growing like hot cakes and will be expanding into a new location that has more meeting rooms but fewer offices. My plan is to let my team telework and I want the new meeting rooms to have flat screens on the walls that are fully equipped for everything: video conferences, audio conferences, the internet, everything. I want all of my off-site staff to be able to see the rooms and vice versa, but I also want the rooms to be able to view live internet video streams as well as local PowerPoint presentations from any device. Can anyone offer suggestions as to the best stuff on the market for this? Is there a turn-key set-up that will accomplish all of this or will I need to hire a design/build firm?
Is there a company that I can pay to film a video of someone walking behind Paul Ryan ringing a bell and yelling "Shame!"? [more inside]

What kind of computer and lighting (and recording devices) do I need to record and edit video? [more inside]
I need to learn how to create a training video. It needs to be able to capture what I am doing on my computer screen, while recording my accompanying dialog. I see these all the time on youtube, but I am unsure how to get started. Where can I find some free training, and/or what kind of software/equipment do I need? Thanks!
I have some interviews to transcribe- some audio only, and some video, each about 45 minutes long. Is there any free or cheap app or software that can take the whole file at once and spit out a reasonably accurate transcription?
My computer records videos with terrible sound even with a microphone hooked up, what are some options to fix it? [more inside]
I somehow believe there was a THING going on in the 1990s/2000s that involved all kinds of pop stars and presenters and performances that were deliberately intended to be edited into one continuous stream that would fit together (going forward and backward, too). [more inside]
I need to record an upcoming training classroom session from start to finish. All the videocameras I see, as well as iDevice apps that I can find, record in high def and can't store nearly enough footage. Low quality video, akin to a 1990s camcorder, is a tradeoff I'm willing to accept. I need the 8 hours to run continuously - no pauses to change storage cards or upload content in order to create space for more filming. Is there an app that will do this? If not, what's the least expensive solution?
I'd like to record some short videos of myself talking. What equipment do I need to supplement what I have? [more inside]
* I AM NOT LOOKING FOR HELP CONVERTING VIDEOS, HANDBRAKE IS NOT WHAT I NEED * I have a chromebook which can play MKV files but almost never plays the audio. I've read that there are programs that can 'remux' video so that it switches the container type or some such instead of actually converting the video. The programs that have been suggested are baffling and I have no idea how to do the remux with them. So I need advice on what program to use as well as how to use it. Thank you very much!

I have a very simple, one-off animation task, which is to illustrate some basic network concepts through a two-to-three minute Youtube video. I have some scripting experience for videos, but no particular graphical chops: what software should i use? [more inside]
I love songs that feature the female singers going "off the rails" in response to the pain in their lives. Drugs, sex, alcohol! Help me find more songs to rock featuring a woman letting go/losing it to music. Bonus points if they have a music video. [more inside]
I am trying to find a dark stop animation electronic metal video of a black worm growing in an aquarium. I thought it was called "Beast".

I'm looking for a tool that will quickly, cheaply and easily re-render a playlist of videos of arbitrary formats and aspect ratios into a single 1080p mp4 file of reasonable quality. No editing, no graphics, just one MP4 file out of many different ones. I know this is ultimately what Final Cut and Premiere do, but I'm hoping for something lighter, cheaper, and faster than putting everything together in a timeline. Is something out there? [more inside]
I have the opportunity to pick up a new side gig shooting 360º immersive videos for real estate agents. What is a good pricing structure that would make the service appealing to agents, yet make the time spent shooting and editing, worth my while? [more inside]

I am looking for short (<5 min) video's / clips I can use in training and coaching. The video's will be combined with more 'boring' theoretical slides about topics like: change management, leadership, strategy deployment, process improvement, customer excellence, hospitality. My youtube collection is in desperate need of an update. Explanation and examples of what I am looking for are in the 'more inside' part of this question. [more inside]
I have slightly less than two weeks to edit a video project. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I'm going to start editing on a MacBook with Final Cut Pro (in Location A) and then have to finish on an iMac with iMovie (in Location B). My Final Cut Pro clips should import to iMovie without any loss of quality, right? I assume yes, but I just need to double check so I'm not pulling my hair out in a week.
I'm looking for websites that have an autoplaying, looping background video of a landscape on the front page, color or black and white both OK. I'm trying to work out the options with a website like this with a client and we are in search of additional examples. Thanks!
After asking this question, I am now wrangling helpful strangers into lip-syncing to a song, and I need somewhere to host our video that won't slap an ad on top of it, or worse, block it for copyright violations. Details inside. [more inside]
I find that video game soundtracks are particularly good background music for programming, but I rarely have time to play new games and discover new music. In the past, I have enjoyed the Superbrothers soundtrack, the soundtrack to Hotline Miami, FTL, certain tracks from Kentucky Route Zero, and the last Deus Ex Machina. Can you recommend post-2014 video game soundtracks that help you to achieve a state of flow?
Years ago (possibly before YouTube?) a friend sent me a link to a video of a girl singing a wonderfully horrible, super-catchy song with a title/chorus that was something like “hearts, stars and diamonds”; if not that exactly, then something close. Does this song still exist somewhere online? [more inside]
It turns out that playing FPS and racing games while walking on a treadmill can lead to vertigo, nausea, and gracelessly falling on the floor. Can you suggest games which might minimize these issues? [more inside]
An amazing human being I've known since high school has a milestone birthday in a month. I'm considering secretly asking a bunch of her friends to record super-short videos, and then compiling those into a birthday greeting. Seems pretty straightforward. So what's the huge looming problem that I'm not considering? [more inside]

This is one of those questions that's probably simple once you know how but almost impossible to Google. I have posted a video to a tumblr, yet it shows up on my tumblr site as an unadorned black rectangle with a white 'play' triangle - hardly very tempting or interesting. Is there a way of adding a preview image, either a still manually cropped from the video or automatically generated?
My girlfriend and I celebrate our anniversary on NYE, and last year we spent the night playing Hatoful Boyfriend. It was ridiculous and fun, and we want to play something that will be as much fun this year. [more inside]

Recently (in the past month, I think), when I watch videos in a browser window sometimes they will develop a pattern of thin horizontal artifacts, as seen here. The artifacts are not static, but change color and position as the video plays, and will generally take up more and more of the screen the longer I let it go. I can't figure out what's causing it or how to fix it, nor can I find a workaround. [more inside]
For a number of reasons, YouTube is overtaking streaming and other TV as the main way I consume moving images at the moment. My son watches a lot of Lets Play videos, and I enjoy them. But what else is there on YouTube.... for me? [more inside]

Are there any video cameras (action cam, body cam, goggle cam, etc) that can be set to always capture video (storing the last X minutes to a temporary buffer), but only record/save the best moments when you tell it to? [more inside]
On Friday, Dec. 4, The Gits are reuniting for a show. I go way back with their drummer, and he has pointed out to me that they really do not have anything set up by way of media, like perhaps a live stream. Who here has suggestions on how to fix this, and fast? This is really kind of a special event, if you know who the Gits were, you would perforce agree
I've really enjoyed watching some of JPL's von Karman lecture series on YouTube. I'd really like to have more good quality stuff to watch online about solar system exploration - "good quality" meaning probably lectures and even rather technical ones, but not the slick, graphics-heavy, ominous voiceover discovery-channel sort of stuff (and definitely not the endless PROOF OF ALIEN LIFE ON TITAN stuff that makes searching for the good stuff so difficult). Any recommendations?

Looking for a music video from the '80s. Pop/dance music, features a guy and a girl on a swing facing each other with the camera mounted on the swing as it moves back and forth. Interesting spinning effects as I recall. Had heavy play probably on BET (possibly MTV or VH1) for a short period, my guess is mid 80's.
Hi there. I just subscribed to a site called pilatesanytime.com, which offers numerous pilates videos for subscribers to watch. However, I’d like to be able to download the videos to my hard drive to watch when I don’t have an internet connection. I’m using a Mac with Firefox, Chrome and Safari. I’m an “intermediate”-level tech person, but the usual Firefox "get video" Fox extensions do NOT work on this site, nor is the underlying video file visible using such methods as “View Page Source” or Firebug.

This video was done, as it says at the end, by using stock footage from dissolve.com. However, throughout the video, there is a white typeface (looks like handwriting) used, and there are also white lines that follow the motion of the video. I'm wondering how this sort of illustration and movement is created over the stock footage.
I do small-scale metalsmithing - sterling silver jewellery, specifically. I work VERY small (a delicate ring is about as big as I go). I'd like to make close-up films of my work and process. [more inside]
