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]

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]

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 and 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?
Ok, so I stumbled upon this youtube video (might be NSFW, or at least raise eyebrows depending on your work environment) through some social site (reddit?). It left me with some questions. [more inside]
Suggest some technically competent YouTube artists who cover well-known songs on different instruments or re-arranged for a different genre. I love when someone takes a song I thought I knew, and shows me a whole different way to perform it. Vocals are okay as long as they're not shrill or cookie-monster growls, but instrumental is preferred, especially if it involves strings and/or double pedal bass. [more inside]

Is there a way to play entire playlists from my YouTube account with the Moto Droid pre-installed YouTube app? Failing that, is there any other app that can do this?
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]

I'm having trouble tracking down Troy Hurtubise's "Don't fuck with Canada" YouTube response to Fox News host Greg Gutfeld's inflammatory commentary about the Canadian military on Red Eye. I'm sure the numerous violent threats that pepper the video might have something to do with why I can't find it anywhere, but I've never had this much trouble tracking down something that got a fair bit of press when it first aired... Can you help me out, hivemind?

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.
