Help me decide how to put a DVD online.

So I have this DVD with accompanying copyright information, descriptive notes and disclaimers and I'd like to put it online so others can access it. The last time I did such a thing, I ripped it and converted to FLV and used JW Player. I could do that again but I wonder if that's what people at the end of 2014 would do. Are we in a post-flash world? Could I do something similar in a different format? (Even though I have some experience with this, please "explain like I'm 5.") [more inside]

Youtube downloading in 2014

Now that SPOI's Youtube Options has gone subscription-only, what options are there for downloading Youtube videos in Chrome or Firefox? Userscripts.org seems to have finally bitten the dust, and the scripts it had were out of date.

You are my only hope, Obi-Mefi-Kenobi

Ok, I'm blowing my question on this because I can't find it and I need to watch it right now. There's a YouTube video of courier typewriter text and voice-over which talks about "A fucked up situation" that the author is recalling. If the title doesn't indicate enough of the video to you, spoilers below the fold to help you find it... because I can't find it. [more inside]

Economics of YouTube gaming

I've recently become very interested in people who record themselves playing video games and then edit and post the videos to YouTube. It's clear that some people are supporting themselves this way. What are the economics of this? Where does the money come from? How much is it? How many followers are necessary to make a living this way? Etc.

Script that will link YouTube videos in much the way MetaFilter does it.

I would like to cobble together a client side script that will display YouTube links more or less like MetaFilter does - as a text link with a small "play" icon after it. Click the words you go to YouTube, click the 'play' thingus and you get an overlay. [more inside]

Looking for good Let's Plays or tutorials that are minimally twitchy

I find a good Let's Play to be soothing and engaging. I like Minecraft best, but am willing to consider other games that have a similar vibe. I am interested in finding good videos that are relatively mature and fun. I would also consider good tutorial series. Currently I have been watching stuff put out by Paul Soares Jr, and I like it. I have not enjoyed anything by stampylongnose because it is too frantic and clownish. I have not found my way into Far Lands or Bust, but am willing to give it a try. Basically I like watching someone go about their business and talk about whatever while they do it. Do you have recommendations? Can you say what you like about your recommended titles?

How to get Google 2-step verification to work in Sony Blu-ray Player?

After turning on Google 2-step verification, I am having trouble signing into YouTube on my Sony Blu-ray player. Any work-around? It seems like the Sony app makes no accommodation for 2-step verification.

Why are online videos stuttering?

Video and audio of online videos (YouTube, Hulu, etc.) stutter quite often when I play them. My laptop is not old by any means and it's been recently formatted. I've updated all the drivers and tried using both the default and HTML 5 Beta players on YouTube; no difference. Seems to be worst in Chrome. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks.

Video speech : "speak clearly and positively" - do you remember this ?

Sometime ago I saw a YouTube video . We are at a poetry festival, from memory in New York state somewhere. A man comes on stage (late thirties, caucasian) - pretty sure he is a poet but what he has to say is prose. He gives an amusing address lasting two to three minutes in which he exhorts people to not use "like", high rising terminals and other similar constructs but to say what they have to say clearly and positively. It's an amusing speech with little malice and with a purpose behind it. Anyone know what this is ?

YouTube MMO parody video?

I feel like this video was something I saw on Metafilter a while back. It started out as two guys speaking in super bombastic theatrical voices but it turned out to be in some kind of video game, maybe an MMO. One of the characters died over and over. That's... all I remember. Help?

Youtube userscript or add-on recommendations?

I love YousableTubeFix for Firefox, which sets global preferences for things like preferred resolution (the most important feature to me), default player size, and whether to autoplay videos on channel pages. The problem: it's still blocking ads even though I told it not to. Could you recommend any other Youtube-preference-modifying Firefox userscripts or add-ons that have a similar purpose but without accidentally blocking the ads? [more inside]

How do I reference old cartoons in Harvard style?

I'm writing the bibliography for my dissertation which is about the animation studio UPA. I need to cite a lot of theatrical cartoons from the 1950s, which I watched on youtube. This Site give intructions for citing youtube videos, but it seems like its referring to original youtube vids, not existing films. It says to list the username of the contributor as the author, and it feels wrong to credit a John Hubley cartoon to "liquidnature13". Do I need to give the cartoon's director, year of release, and studio, as well as the contributer's username and the year it was uploaded? If so, how should I format it? (I'm using the Harvard system)

I can't believe I'm using my question looking for a cat video but this is gonna make me crazy

I cannot remember where I found this YouTube video. It is a song about cats in boxes. I vaguely remember the line "cats in boxes are amazing" in it. I think at some point the cat(s) may be removed from the box, and then possibly replaced in the box. The song was sung by a girl (I think) and had a sort of indie/folk-y backing to it. [more inside]

Help me find this parody of "body language" instructional videos

Looking for a viral youtube video that was a parody of "body language" instructional videos. I think it was made by some comedy troupe a few years back. There's a part where they "decode" what people are saying with their body language, e.g. someone waves at someone else and the narrator says, "I am unarmed." And I think there's a part where they show lines coming from someone's crotch and they say, "My penis is powerful!" I think it was pretty popular and had a couple million views, but I cannot for the life of me find it.

Need help with video blog in Atlanta, GA

I'm working on new finance-based startup in the Marietta, GA (just outside of Atlanta, GA) and I'd like to hire someone to come in do bi-weekly interviews of me and my team as we go through the process (kind of like the Robert Scoble interviews if you've ever seen them). It's a pretty exciting time for us and our product and I've been told by many that we should start a blog or youtube channel to share our experiences. There's also an interesting personal piece that both me and the CEO would be interested in sharing and that I think a lot of young people would be interested in hearing. The problem is that in the list of things we can spend our time doing, setting up equipment, doing the interviews, and editing the videos is low priority. Can anyone recommend a company or how I can find an individual who would be interested in doing this for us?
