Spaaaaaaace! Spacespacespace

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?

'80s music video ID help needed.

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.

Help me download streaming video from this site (Note: tricky!!!)

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.

How was this video animated?

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.

Your favorite scenes of waltzing in movies

I saw Crimson Peak over the weekend, and, separately, I've had the Sleeping Beauty waltz in my head all morning. I'm in a waltzy mood, and want to watch youtube clips of beautiful, cinematic, sweep-you-off-your-feet waltzes from the movies. What are your favorites?

'natural' ultra-white face makeup: 101-level application instructions?

My Halloween costume is just a regular old undead sort of demon: black eyes, horns, and a very white face. My intent is to have a scary pale, almost paper-white visage, but I want it to look less thick/flat and more 'natural' than standard clown grease paint. I have no makeup application experience whatsoever. Can you help me figure it out? [more inside]

Avoiding running into misogyny in Let's Plays

I'm looking for Let's Players/Streamers on YouTube who aren't assholes to women. Are there any good recommendations for who I might want to follow?

At this point I want to stop gambling with my time. [more inside]

What are these Germans saying?

By no means do I need a word-for-word translation or anything, but what is generally going on in this video? That is, what is the gist of what the introducer is saying, and when Pit Hartling comes on stage, what is he explaining about the Rubik's Cube before he does the flourish at the end? What, indeed, is this event? Thanks for your help, German speakers!

Video Presentation App With Automatic Pauses

Is there an iOS app that lets you build pauses into a video's playback at specific points? Here's my dream scenario: a video begins playing on the iPad until it hits the first pause point, like at 0:07. The video stays paused there until the user next taps the screen, at which point it plays until the next pause point, and waits there. Is there anything out there like that?

Giving a live demo, need to project it—what camera, etc?

I thought this would be a simple thing to ask about and search, and a common need with an obvious solution. But I can't seem to get the lingo right. I'll be giving a presentation with a laptop and a projector for slides, but also want to add live action video of me doing stuff on the table or podium, within about a 13x19" area…using what? An iTouch/iPad in a holder/tripod? A doc camera? A GoPro? Is this what a webcam is/does? All wired, btw, no wifi or internet available. Help? TIA!

How do I know which Graphics Card I can upgrade to? (AMD Processor)

Hi MeFi, I have a PC I bought in 2012 and it has served me well for past years, however, it skips/lags when it comes to 1080p/4k video. I am looking to upgrade to a better card but unsure what factors I have to consider before upgrading. I mostly do video editing + motion media. The machine is as follows: Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) CPU: AMD FX-8150 (Zambezi 32nm Technology) Motherboard: Gigabyte 2AC8 Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7570 2gb RAM: 16gb Is there a site that will let me figure out which GFX card(s) my machine is upgradable to?

Video Message Collection

I'm wondering if there's a service that provides an easy way to collect video messages. I'd imagine it working like this: I send some people a link to www.vidmsg.com/messagesforme and then they click "record" to record from their webcams. Then I can log in and play all the videos. Does something like that exist?

Live video art installation (concept?) showing remote locations?

I remember a live video art installation (or a concept?) about setting up large video screens in public spaces, with cameras, linked to video screens w/cameras in other cities (even international) where the general public would wander by and see the equivalent general public wandering by in the other location. A kind of public park "skype" that's always on & linked to another location. I'm looking for info about such projects, and my google-fu is failing me.

What, in 2015, are the best app options when it comes to video editing?

When watching YouTube I often can't help but feel that I'm the only person in the world who doesn't use video editing software. I often rip and encode videos but I've yet to delve into the world of video editing. Mostly I want to remove 'mistakes' and extraneous stuff from videos of myself speaking. My requirement are that the apps are Windows-compatible. Freeware and payware apps are welcome. It's preferable that the apps are light on resources and noob-friendly, but these aren't requirements.

Start recording at Bang

I want to start a few seconds video recording prompted by a gun blast. Plan is to attach a USB camera to a spotting scope and have my Mac start recording a few seconds of video the moment a shot is fired. The start and stop of the Video recording can be done with Automator ad/or Apple script. I am looking for an app or hardware solution to prompt the recording. It could be an application that starts a script once a sound exceeds a certain level. Perhaps even better a motion sensor that will sense the shock in the rifle stock. Thanks for your help. Rogier
