  1. News from YouTube

    I wanted to post the news some time ago, but I was afraid I was wrong. So I waited.
    It seems, however, to be the truth and nothing but the truth (for the time being): YouTube have removed their ads from all videos except the ones that have (And even there, the ads are gone when we use IE or Firefox).
    So now we can embed YouTube videos - in an iframe or flash object - without resorting to all kinds of malicious means to remove the ads (which does ...

  2. A plugin for the JW Player

    A plugin that allows us to (i) create a customized playlist for chromeless YouTube-videos (using the JW player), (ii) place info about each video at the top of it and (iii) chop the video's - which makes it possible to create new YouTube-video's out of existing ones.

    Inserting these two lines to your include code for video's:

    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never">
    <param name="allowNetworking" value="internal">

    prevents flash apps from running scripts or having outbound links.

    This is a very handy method for preventing users to open the video on the video-providing site (in a new window) when they accidentally click on the video screen.

  5. HTML 4.01 Strict Video Include & Chopping Parts from YouTube video's

    Perhaps many of you already knew this. I didn't.
    HTML 4.01 Strict Video Include:
    <!--[if IE]>
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" style="position:absolute;left:20%; top:20%; height:80%;width:80%">
