Okay, so I'm slow with the internet meme things, but only a few weeks ago did I come across the Piano Improv Guy from Chat Roulette. Despite my inability to play piano or sing or rock the hoodie, my immediate thought was, "Wow, I wish I thought of that!" What other clever, creative ways of exploiting various media (that it probably wasn't intended for) provoked the same reaction for you? [more inside]

I love this 7+ hr video of the Bergensbanen in Norway. The scenery is amazing and the fact that it's just one shot means that I can just leave it on on the background as a kind of moving landscape. I'm looking for your recommendations for something similar to play via computer on a pc, tv or flat panel monitor. [more inside]

Google likes to sign you into their search service once you sign into Youtube. It used to not be like this. I prefer to be logged into Youtube but not Google search/images/maps/docs/etc.. Is there any way to do this?
Is it possible to obtain free current movie trailers in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio (i.e. 2.35:1 matted to be 1.78:1)? If I download them from the Apple site or Youtube they're 2.35:1 without mattes. This is a problem because I wish to display them on a 16x9 monitor, so they'll stretch out to 1.78:1. [more inside]
Trying to find a video of a Kids in the Hall sketch featuring "the prostitutes." I haven't seen it in years but involved them getting a price guide from their pimp, but then throwing it away and again offering "25-cent handjobs" (or something). Youtube has been unhelpful, most KITH videos are unhelpfully labeled.

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.

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.
