I would like to pre-program some lighting sequences to go along with various videos. Any suggestions for software that could play back video and lighting cues (over either DMX or MIDI)? [more inside]
I am seeking animal documentaries for kids aged 6-8 years old. Ideally, I am looking for ones that talk about animal senses: how a dog's nose works, how bats use echolocation, how elephants communicate subsonically, how cat whiskers work, etc. Ideally as well, these would be available on a publicly accessible video stream online: YouTube, Vimeo, etc., or hosted on an educational site that is offering them for free.
As mentioned above, I can't watch videos linked from Twitter. I've found this as a possible solution but I feel stupid and contagious. Can you please step me through this as if I didn't know where to start?
We have a Macbook Air running Sierra 10.12, upgraded within the last 10 weeks or so. Since then we can't keep free space on the hard drive. It just continually disappears, to the point where the drive is almost full and the computer stops functioning properly. I can't find the source of the problem, except that the space used by "System" files is just growing and growing -- today it's at 150GB! Are there any serious Mac experts out there who can help me?

I took a video at an anti-Trump protest. Just chanting and marching, nothing too dramatic. NBC assignment editor contacted me on Twitter and wants to use on "all platforms/partners (with credit)". Any downside? It feels weird to give this away for free, but OTOH I'm sure she's not going to pay me for it. I don't care if my Twitter handle is associated with it.
I want to be able to record moving images that are playing on my iPhone screen. Is there an app that will do this? It doesn't need to record audio, just video.

I'm looking for wordless (or nearly so), non-animated, non-idiotic/condescending short videos for my toddler. The Sesame Street Milk Song is a nearly perfect example.
I'm trying to find a good way to combine multiple video clips that overlap (shared frames between the videos)-- ideally something can be run on Windows, but I'm interested in good solutions on toher platforms, as well. This is for H.264 Quicktime MOV files (1080p 12-15fps) that are captured as the live part of iPhone Live Photos. [more inside]
How can I address the following problems with the YouTube Kids app: (1) no whitelisting, (2) no downloads and (3) stability problems? The solution can be another app that offers similar control over viewing, or any other tips or configuration options, but the end result must be suitable to put in the hands of a young toddler. Thank you!
Back in the day when Duoshao was a tyke, namely the late 70s/early 80s, one of the children's shows such as Electric Company or something similar periodically showed a short film of a complex machine that cooked breakfast. Does anyone remember this? I'd love to watch it again. [more inside]

There is a YouTube video, several years old, that features an earnest-seeming commercial about individuals accepting some sort of cult religion. As the video went on, the material got more and more ridiculous. I feel like the fake cult starts with a K. The artist who put it together had 2 or 3 videos in the series. I know it was mentioned on MeFi before. Any help?
Is there an iPhone or Android video recording app that only records when motion is detected? [more inside]
Back in the proverbial day (2006/2007), the TV channel MHD (later called Palladia, LATER called MTV Live) aired a Gorillaz concert called "Demon Days: Live in Harlem". It was filmed at the Apollo on New Year's Eve, I believe. They performed the Demon Days album straight through, with cartoon visuals. Dennis Hopper narrated one song. I would pay strip club-style SWEATY FISTFULS OF CASH to obtain a decent video of this (digital format is ideal, but DVD is also fine). Any ideas?

I'd like to set up a kid-friendly video playlist, so no one has to touch a remote except to start the playlist & turn it off. Are there apps that will do this on any of the set top boxes (roku, amazon fire tv, apple tv, chromecast)? I'd prefer streaming media if it's easy, but playing purchased media would work.

I keep missing the Olympics - women's gymnastics, Simone Manuel, etc. The NBC Olympic site has very few replays and I guess YouTube is on Olympic lockdown. Is there anywhere online to watch replays?
I love to be able to multitask on my ipad while I watch videos in 'picture in picture' mode. Is there a way I can emulate this on a PC? I found a Chrome extension that will do it for Youtube but it won't make the video 'always on top' so it goes away when I click on anything else. I'd like to find something that will do it for all video in a browser - whether that's chrome or something else. I'm running Windows 10.

So....I'm a bit of a plant nerd and have a nice collection of rare palms and fruit trees in my garden in New Zealand. I also have a nice web-based database where I have information about each plant such as the date I planted it, what I paid for it, and horticultural info (told you I was a nerd!). What I'd really like is to: 1) create a video of the garden, zooming in on each plant, where the viewer can click on that plant and be taken to its relevant webpage for more information. 2) have a textbox appear with the name of tha plant 3) have the option of displaying pictures (e.g. of that same plant in previous years) on screen.

Link to video [warning: war footage; people dying]. It could be post punk (eg Durutti Column).
It sounds familiar but I can't place it. For reference: the video
I saw a music video which I think was a grime video (it's been a while, so maybe I'm mistaken) which had two musicians driving what looked like cardboard boxes around a computer graphic background. The musicians faces/hands/necks were darkened. I believe they had sunglasses on. The colors were highly saturated/day-glo. Anyone know wot I'm talkin' about?
I'd like a bunch of videos of actual rejections. [more inside]
I watched this Clinton ad today that used footage from James Comey's testimony to Congress yesterday. How long did this take to make? There aren't many edits, or anything, but it's professionally put together and very concisely argued. I'm just curious, from conception to completion, how many person hours would something like this take?
Some time ago, there was a rendition of the Game of Thrones theme performed using squeaky toys. Apparently it has now been wiped off the face of the internet due to a copyright claim by Colosseum Music Entertainment GmbH (if indeed that is the one i am looking for). [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?

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?

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!
