YouTube doesn't recognise itself



  • YouTube just worked itself up into a state where it didn't even trust links from one video's description to another YouTube video:

    (Video series is the scenic 1 m gauge Centovalli railway between Locarno in Switzerland and Domodossola in Italy.)



  • TRWTF is your Firefox... what's up with the color and all those menu's? Ugh! No wonder YouTube is confused.



  • Windows 8 does not support dismal themes, so I went with something cheery. (You can't have white window captions or dark inactive windows, not without deep theme hackery.) My XP PC before had black windows with near-black teal content areas, but I didn't feel so depressed when I set up 8, even if 8 did allow the same degree of control.

    I don't mind using the Firefox title bar button for the menus, but I couldn't find any way to move my bookmarks bar into a dedicated toolbar: I can only have a bookmarks bar so long as I have the menu bar visible, and the bookmarks in the menu bar. I set up Firefox that way years ago to conserve screen space.

    It's a bit garish, admittedly.

    I'm not even remotely affected by camera movement in games (even when watching a video), or by reverse-riding in bus and train, but this video made me dizzy. Wow. Good job.



  • The real train doesn't go quite that fast...The video is at double speed.

    I think that's how we should implement high-speed rail here in the US too. Much cheaper than replacing all that track...

    EDIT: what bothers me more than the sped-up video is the one blurry line about 1" from the bottom of the frame. Was that something on the windshield, something in the camera, or something that went wrong in the video compression? ONCE YOU NOTICE IT YOU CAN'T LOOK AWAY NOW I AM INSANE

    I grant you, there are points in the video where it should be reduced to black and white and accompanied by a silent film soundtrack ;-)

    Or just get a Zanussi Train — cool noises work well too =)
