Lately, I've been experiencing video loading behavior issues again, even after applying what I suggested in my original answer. Dash playback From what I understand, the underlying issue is YouTube's implementation of Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP. From what I can tell, there are both server-side and client-side implementations at work here. The ...

There is a very popular open source command-line downloader called youtube-dl, which does exactly that. It grabs the actual video and audio file links from a given YouTube link – or any other popular web video site like Vimeo, Yahoo! Video, uStream, etc. To see how that's done, look into the YouTube extractor. That's just too much to show here. Other ...

YouTube Bookmarklet This is how I did it with JavaScript Start with ytplayer.config.args object. This contains all URLs for the video.

The ImageMagick convert program can split up animated GIFs. e.g. given the existence of a file 'foo.gif', I can run: convert foo.gif foo.png and it will create files foo-0.png, foo-1.png, etc, one for each frame. If you have more digits, then use the following syntax, for example with 4 digits: convert foo.gif foo%04d.png You could then use FFmpeg to ...

This could have to do with hardware acceleration. If you are using Flash: Right click on the video, go to Settings and in the first tab toggle the acceleration checkmark. Go to http://www.youtube.com/testtube and enable HTML5. If you are using HTML5: Go to http://www.youtube.com/testtube and disable HTML5. Right click on the Flash video, go to ...

YouTube expects your video to be H.264-encoded. If you use libx264, stick to YouTube's encoding suggestions: ffmpeg -framerate 10 -i image%03d.png -s:v 1280x720 -c:v libx264 \ -profile:v high -crf 20 -pix_fmt yuv420p daimler_man.mp4 Tips: -qscale is a way to set quality, but -qscale alone is ambiguous. Use -qscale:v for video and -qscale:a for audio ...

In the comments for this enhancement request there is a suggestion (comment 5 at 2012-03-13 15:57:41) to set media.webm.enabled, media.ogg.enabled and media.wave.enabled to false in order to "render <video> and '' elements unable to play anything." All these options are readily available if you enter about:config in the address box, and then enter ...

According to this Reddit response by Booor, this happens when somehow you get two flash players enabled at the same time. To fix it, simply disable one of them: Go to chrome://plugins Click on "+ Details" on the right top corner Find the flash player plugin and disable one of the DLLs The DLL to be disabled should be the one that's not on the Chrome's ...

The commonly accepted solution to this issue appears to be disabling hardware acceleration for Flash player. This is usually accomplished by right-clicking the Flash content, selecting Settings and then uncheck the Enable Hardware Acceleration option, but in the affected version of Flash player, it isn't possible to uncheck that particular option (clicking ...

Here's what worked: ffmpeg -i audio.mp3 -f image2 -loop 1 -i logo.jpg -r 15 -s 640x480 \ -c:v libx264 -crf 18 -tune stillimage -preset medium \ -shortest foo.mov Specifically, the loop option, which will duplicate the image as frames. It will also then need the shortest option to keep the file from growing and growing (this way it truncates it to the ...

I can't believe I figured out the problem after so many months and it was staring at me in the face all along. It was my wireless headphones. The Plantronics 995h apparently operates on the damn 2.4Ghz spectrum and so it must have been interefering with my wireless card. THAT'S why it was random and occuring even though my Wifi analyzer showed no other ...

The Youtube Enhancer script adds controls that include a loop button. As can be seen in the picture you can not only loop the entire video, but easily loop an arbitrary section using the Begin and End buttons.

Make sure the video you're trying to download has actual subtitles uploaded from the owner. For example, the one where it fails only offers automatic captioning, which works by analyzing the speech in the video and then transcribing it on the fly: However, what you want is a video that has "real" captions. Those can be downloaded easily. For example: ...

I'll add this as an answer because it turned out to be the cause: The problem is that since the first week of October 2013 YouTube freezes its playback after 1 to 1,5 minute. I found that the most likely cause of this freezing is Google's own Chrome Toolbox extension (it was for me). When disabling this extension the playback of YouTube continues as ...

Youtube actually uses the HLS "Http Live Streaming" method that Apple invented and is trying to standardize. I replicated that method using a elaborate command line for VLC and a HTTP web server and it worked on the Wii U. Here's the command line: "c:\program files (x86)\videolan\vlc\vlc" -I rc dshow:// vdev="XSplitBroadcaster" adev="XSplitBroadcaster" ...

How about not pausing and hitting prtscn when the timing is right :) If that is not an option Windows 7 has a tool called Snipping Tool that will let you chop off the top UI bar, of course at the cost of losing that much video area.

The easiest way to get the URL of the video to paste into VLC that I found was in Firefox. Go to the video using FF. Right click -> Page Info. Go to the Media tab and find the video URL. The type will be Video, and the URL should be av.vimeo.com/foobar. Right click -> Copy the URL. Paste into VLC and off you go

You can't do this. Your isp knows that youtube's ip address is a certain value and that you are trying to request content from it. You can't doublespeak and say I want information from youtube and another page at the same time, and there is no way to route information through youtube. Sorry.

I used the Online FLV convertor for this . Just give the url and select way of output you want .

Youtube have a guide which talks all about how to prepare and make 3D video. It typically involves taking two separate video streams from cameras at a slight angle to each other and then combining it using special software.
