During this holiday break I'm going to be purchasing a domain name and migrating a University department's WordPress.com blog over to either WordPress.org or Blogger. I need help deciding which (Wordpress.org or Blogger) will be the best way to go based on the blog's needs and the capabilities of its authors. [more inside]

Help me find this funny 2- or 3-year-old YouTube video. Wife says the do-it-yourself advertising supplement is really helpful. Then she rolls it up and hits her sleeping husband with it to get him moving.

My sister needs to make YouTube videos for her business. The camera outputs MP4 files. Needs the ability to edit and add beginning and ending slides. Output should be uploadable to YouTube. Currently using VideoPad (on Vista) which keeps outputting video with out-of-sync audio. Suggested software should work on Vista or Windows 7. Any ideas? (besides Movie Maker)

I'm looking for an unintentionally hilarious video concerning Kenny the white tiger
. It was photos of Kenny interspersed with slides of the creator's commentary, much of which was misspelled or incoherent. I saw it within the last year and a half on YouTube. [more inside]

I'm going to be in a cabin in the wilderness for three days with one of my best friends. We will each be bringing flip cameras with us.
We want to make a viral video and we're looking for ideas of what to shoot/make. Any ideas? Go wild! We're open to just about anything.
If we end up using your idea, we promise to mention your name in the credits.

What was the "YoutubeFilter" site mentioned on Daring Fireball

When I watch certain videos on YouTube, they instantly degrade on start into colored blocks and artifacts that are a little reminiscent of '80s videotape artifacts. The audio remains audible, but the video looks like a mess. Example: this
, at 0:13, looks like this
. Plenty of YouTube videos work completely fine, however. Any ideas on why this seems to happen, and/or how to fix it? [more inside]

Youtube has been indispensable for me as a quick "clear my head in 5 minutes" resource while at work or at home. This
are my gotos, but I would love other links.

I've been having problems with YouTube over the last couple of days. Most of the time it works just fine, but it's freaked out a few times, and not worked for an hour or so, and then gotten better. Here's what happens: The pages looks like this
(YouTube homepage), and videos won't play (annoyingly enough, page-ads play just fine). It tells me that my Flash player isn't up to date, which it is. Other flash-things work just fine, including other video sharing websites. Google Chrome is my primary browser but the same thing happens in Firefox. I've asked around and no one I know has had the same problem. What is wrong and how can I fix it?

I made a long video, and I need to break it into ten-minute-long chunks, so that I can post it to YouTube. I would LOVE some app that let's me batch process
this task. I want to start it running in the morning and come home at night to find a whole bunch of ten-minute-long videos on my desktop. I'm using an Intel Mac.
I'm willing to buy an app if I have to.

I've been working on promoting a video on YouTube, and we've been getting reports from a handful of people (probably 15-20 complaints total out of 28K+ views) that they're unable to watch the video on YouTube or embedded anywhere else. The player loads and it seems to buffer, but the video/audio simply won't play. Even more bizarre, everybody reporting this problem has been able to watch other videos on YouTube (only ours refuses to play). Has anybody else encountered a problem like this, and were you able to resolve it? [more inside]

On the White House's YouTube channel
, the content area is pushed down to make room for a graphic at the top. How do they do that? I know how to add a background image, but I'm not sure how to push the content or player window down to get out of the way.

Is there any way to normalize the volume output on my PC so I'm not startled by clicking on a video link? The volume on YouTube and other sites varies so wildly from video to video that my modus operandi
is to mute before I play the video, then slowly increase the volume, but I'm hoping there is a better way.
