Believing something false does not make it true.
Well I can only speak for myself of course but I LIKE your videos TK.  I always watch them.  And as I said I know that it takes some effort to make a decent video.  So thanks for taking the time to make them.

Respectfully,
Carroll

M'kay then.... I get the message. I'll not subject you to any more of my videos.

TK, please don't get  upset and take this personally, as it was just a general purpose rant mostly aimed at some of the really lousy videos out there.

 Your videos happen to be at the top of the list of videos that are enjoyable, technically good, usually concise and to the point, never boring. You are often commended by all of us for that.  O0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To all, speaking in general
 If you want to have an interesting experience, turn off the sound and watch just the video portion, then it is easy to evaluate the value of the word over the visual. I do this often and it is very revealing. A lot of them would be fine if they were just audio, because there is not much going on in the video, a waste of bandwidth, but with cheap storage who cares.

The intention is feedback, both positive and negative, lest we live in a world where it becomes an echo chamber of only positive feedback, so never needs improvement, a tautology, a "good old boys" club.

I'm sure more than one could post a good rant roast on a curmudgeon like me and my offerings or lack thereof, so have at it and bring it on, after all this is the "RANT ROOM".  :)

Regards

Buy me some coffee
TK and everyone else, would you guys be interested in me adding a buy a drink button, it would allow someone to make a paypal donation to a user, but the question is does everyone use paypal? i cannot find a mod for bitcoin unfortunately yet.

Maybe we can try and help experimenters raise some funds to help with costs.

any ideas are welcome.

Here IMO videos have played... or can play a big role ,  techniques or critiques of presentations are just getting better and better here
many are learning and they can teach others ,

 I look at this a bit like school and I learn here all the time.

while fellows Like TK may feel like their at work sometimes and some other men who made or make  their living in this field may feel
the experience of a video not really needed [from their perspective just a good PDF will do'

for the learner,  Class is much more fun with video's and yes a well documented and presented PDF is definitely a good goal and should always be strived for.

this place just keeps getting better and better...
and yes it is good to have a goal [a better presentation or PDF]

but here it also needs some fun ,

@ I see Peter and I posted at the same time
I like the Buy a drink Button?

or buy a cheeseburger button

Hi Peter.

Mines a pint of " Bishops Finger " please !!   O0  :)

Sadly, PayPal is the only option available for things like eBay etc....

Cheers Graham.

PS. My video The Flywheel? V.3 is currently at 828,037 views, 1500 hits per hour in the USA at present.

The buy a drink would be cool if I could actually have a real drink delivered, no flapdragons please.

Gee, I like cheezeburgers, can I haz one?

I would suggest an EmmyOU or OscarOU Awards Night for best videos in this category and a "Roast"night  for the worst video producer of the year (in the FE category). We can all chip in paypal for little trophies.

Some of the video categories could be:

Most Spectacular Sparks

Best Science Fiction

Spookiest / Horror

Believe It Or Not...

Best Soundtrack or Music Score

Best Laugh Track

Best Silent Video

Worlds Funniest OU Video

Best "Almost OU" Anime

can anyone add some categories to this?

And businessmen, don't forget those all important "keywords" in your titles if you want the biggest bang from your video, of course, even if you have to stretch the truth more than a bit.

These guys should have a long vacation in Hades for their marketing advice,
as Bill Hicks would say "you're in marketing?, kill yourself now"

Now I know why some videos hold the carrot out and are very long and boring, hoping you'll watch 'till the end.

youtube is the free energy runaway device with looping, "the fire that feeds itself"

make youtube videos=make money=time to make more youtube videos =make more money=time to make even more videos and hire helpers....etc. gone exponential.


Regards
Dum Founded  :P

P.S. I've heard one definition of marketing as " using every psychological ploy in the book to convince someone to buy something they really don't need"

predatory? you decide.

In honor of the late Bill Hicks and George Carlin:

Tk your videos are up there in the top 10. I have just made a video and when I looked at the space it used, 5G, it would take me for ever to load it on youtube. I only hace a 1Meg connection, any ideas on how to do a vid for youtube, stream it live? All suggestions welcome.

Regards
Mikel

Thank you all for your kind messages of support.  It does take considerable time and thought, even to make a 5 minute "shaky-cam" video and edit it down to some kind of intelligible form. I'm glad that some people may find them helpful and/or entertaining.

Centraflow, I use a program called "WinFF" to compress my longer videos so that they don't take so much time to upload.
http://winff.org/html_new/
There will be some loss in quality but it beats waiting all day for an upload to complete.

It takes a few minutes to learn how to use it for best results, but it usually gives a factor of 8-10 in compression depending on the options you select. So your 5 GB video may compress to 500 MB, which is still a lot but it's better than 5GB.

I generally take my raw video files from the camera (in some kind of Panasonic .MOD proprietary file format) , title screens, annotated stills, audio clips, etc.  and edit them together using OpenShot, a Linux nonlinear video editor. I make title screens and annotated stills using mtPaint.

With OU / FE video award night fast approaching how would you categorize this video, assuming it were nominated:

Dangit, ION.

You wasted a little over 6 minutes of my life there !!   :)

However, based upon a suggestion that TK made a fair while ago I entitled this video in block capitals with the words " Free, secret and energy in the same sentence.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiqEtigpJaI

Strangely, it's my third most viewed video !!   ;)

BTW. F/W V3... @  834,099 views that's 6062 views in under 24 hours !!   :o

Kind regards, Graham.

Dear Graham

That was a great video...you are a good sport!

 Now the rules are that it must be an FE or OU video, but I think we can allow the nomination if you make the claim that there might be more energy released from the water flowing down than it took to get it up on the hook, due to the possible added attraction of your body mass. Are you making that claim or do you have another angle?  ;)

BTW, that video flowed nicely right into your Wesley Gary videos, which I think deserve more view than they have gotten. Commendable dedication and workmanship.  O0
I tried building one way back but mine was crude.  :P

Regards

Turn the sound off and try to watch this latest video from Ruslan.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVYxc6cJa0c

Tell me you don't need Dramadine afterwords. If this is the way information is to be presented then an "Idiocracy" future is assured.

Kind regards, Graham.

It's all in the name,and a complicated looking thumbnail.

1.139 million views.

The name was actually how i envisioned the device working.
The magnetic field would rotate in one direction on the top stator,and in the other direction on the bottom stator,and the middle stator would be the receiver-hence the name-duel magnetic vortex generator.

I then worked out i would require 76 transistors to do the required switching .
