Thank you Susan and Malaise. It's always a pleasure to meet people on our own thread. I see Malaise talking around in SCF since a long time. Dear (queen) Susan i didn't saw you until today, please welcome on this board.

for today, just a little reminder.

how to maintain the proportions of a rectangle, or in another way how to maintain the ratio ?

The so famous and so useful in daylife "Cross-multiplication" is the solution. ( In french we say: "la règle de trois")

In our case,

Width >> (for) height

a >> (for) b

Our purpose: if width=x , height y=?

solution: cross-multiplication

a >> b
x >> y
cross-multiplication:
a*y=x*b => y=x*b/a


exemple a=640 >> b=480

if x=320 >> y=320*480/640=240

(Re) in this particular case, 640/2=320 and it's easy to find that 480/2=240 ;-)

(re2) 640/480= 320/240= 4/3= 1,33333 )

> No more mathematics for now, we need simple.

in video we manage only two formats:

SD is in 4/3 ex 640x480
HD is in 16/9 ex 1280x720

4/3

4/3=1,333 ; 3/4=0,75

so if:
x=a>>y= a*0,75 ------(x= 640 > y=640*0,75=480)
y=b>>x= b*1,33 ------(y= 480 > y=480*1,333=639,84)


16/9

16/9= 1,77 ; 9/16= 0,56

so if:
x=a>>y= a*0,56----(x=1280 > y=1280*0,56=716,8)
y=b>>x= b*1,77----(y=720 > y=720*1,77=1274,4)

Re: we can consider these results as acceptable approximations

For today i am interested on video quality comparison between various hosts services.

The shooting is mine, taken in front of my Kitchen early in the morning. Maybe it's not the better exemple for comparison, no way, i like it!
I don't know why there is often a problem to load viddler screen inside a mixed videos display ? When i put it alone on a post it works very well; with perhaps the best quality. >> So i put others one on the next post

Google video


YouTube


Photobucket


For me, Viddler and Photobucket are better picture quality (Vimeo also good but difficulties to load the videos)
-Youtube have lost Adobe premiere express editing options, but still have developped notes, sounds and so on.
-Photobucket still deployed Adobe premiere express for (nearly basic) editing options
-Viddler has developped an interesting system to add video comments along the strip (good word?). And also, Upload is not bad because time saving. we need just to stay the time for uploading the file. Encoding is done after: a mail can be sent to annonce the achievement.

Hi everybody, probably my last post on this thread (but who knows)..

Well nothing really new Here. I have just found in mind that it would be cool to link up full screen video with displayed video rather than an single picture as i did in a previous post.


exemple taken from Speed Modelling Challenge #6 Castles

and kwistenbiebel's work that i'm completely fan


The idea:
[url=http://www.mysite.com/before&_src_link][flash=x,y]http://www.mysite.com/complete_src_link[/flash][/url]


Youtube embeded link
Code: Select all
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/YEFW9eP7_F4&hl=fr&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/YEFW9eP7_F4&hl=fr&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>


src= link to Flash:
Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/v/YEFW9eP7_F4&hl=fr&fs=1


src= link to full screen:
Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/v/YEFW9eP7_F4


full code:
Code: Select all
[url=http://www.youtube.com/v/YEFW9eP7_F4][flash=480,385]http://www.youtube.com/v/YEFW9eP7_F4&hl=fr&fs=1[/flash][/url]


Works ! (just clic on the below blue line)



Not bad But full screen isn't in high quality (as far as i can see, Youtube doesn't give a way to watch full screen in the best quality)



best regards :-)simonlebon

And a much simpler way for a common use:
.. Thank You Ecuadorian.
Easy way to embed Youtube video in SketchUcation by Ecuadorian :|

To summarize the idea:
Ecuadorian wrote:All you have to do is replace "XXXXX" with the Youtube ID of your video in these templates:

For most videos:
Code: Select all
[flash=500,405]http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXXXXX[/flash]
../..
The Youtube ID of your video is very easy to spot.
It's everything between watch?v= and &.

Good improvement (taken from kirill): It is possible to embed a set of several videos with the same link using YOUTUBE. !!!
"and arrange them the way you want"

You just need a Youtube account (but who haven't one ? :roflmao: )

->You have to open a new Playlist, and fill it with the set of videos you want to share (not necessarily yours).
After what you have to embed it in SCF with the famous "SRC" link.. Very simple :thumb: :thumb:









the result:
Code: Select all
[flash=500,405]http://www.youtube.com/p/30B1B7B5C383740E&amp;hl=fr&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"[/flash]

Hi KXI System,

Beautiful video you are showing.
I'm glad if this study can be useful.
I have to mention that YouTube video quality had grown a lot since my previous tests. Tell me if I'm wrong but I think it is now the best quality we can find.

Time passing this thread is becoming a grabbing box for Youtube services.

Today I would like mention PWN YouTube for who wants to download YouTube videos in flv or in plain MP4 quality

I have been having great luck with YouTube keeping my full resolution of videos when I record them at their recommended sizes. My text is very sharp and readable, which is a must for my (rather boring) ruby plugin tutorials I've been doing. So I'd also have to agree that YouTube quality has greatly improved.

Though I understand that people sometimes want (need) to download YT videos for various reasons (generally not connected to the Internet, being in a country that blocks YT etc) however the Terms Of Service of YouTube explicitly prohibits this so everyone do it on their own risk and responsibility:

TOS 4/C wrote:You agree not to access User Submissions (defined below) or YouTube Content through any technology or means other than the video playback pages of the Website itself, the YouTube Embeddable Player, or other explicitly authorized means YouTube may designate.

:!: :?: So it is probably not legal to embed Youtube videos here, into our SCF forums!!


And about PWNYOUTUBE:

I have found that"pwn" is not a very fair word!
I have made a small search on the legality of PwnYoutube site: Deturl.com and have found nothing significant..
But dear Gaieus, you are probably right. May be I can remove this link from my previous post. What do you think about?

Hi,

I do not know if I have understood everything correctly. Until now I have not yet uploaded videos. So I can, for example, a video, a tutorial not upload as a file from my PC. That means I have to upload the video at first to a hoster like Youtube. Then I can incorporate it into my post. Is that correct?

Hey, since I want to embed this, but the thing is its not a video but still a flash. If someone kindly tell me as simple as possible to embed this properly into our forms.
Code: Select all
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="420" height="320"><param name="movie" value="http://www.letsmix.com/content/flash/player/letsmixplayer.1.5.swf" /><param name="flashvars" value="mixID=28807&format=Big&autoStart=0" /><object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.letsmix.com/content/flash/player/letsmixplayer.1.5.swf" width="420" height="315"><param name="flashvars" value="mixID=28807&format=Big&autoStart=0" /></object></object><p><a href="http://www.letsmix.com/mix/28807/beats_in_a_bowl" target="_blank">Beats In A Bowl</a> from <a href="http://www.letsmix.com/houseflakes" target="_blank">HouseFlakes</a> at <a href="http://www.letsmix.com" target="_blank">Letsmix.com</a>.</p>

Not everything can be embedded with these simply bbcodes we have. What you copied is a complete set of html codes with different values here and there but most importantly not in a single string (a unique URL) that could be added inside the [flash] tags.

The URL does not give the ID of the movie (or whatever) just embeds the player itself:
Code: Select all
[flash=420,320]http://www.letsmix.com/content/flash/player/letsmixplayer.1.5.swf[/flash]

and without the ID itself (which is located elsewhere and called by the thml codes):
Code: Select all
<param ... mixID=28807&format=Big&autoStart=0" />

it gives the error message:

Hi Gaieus,

This is my first test in order to insert a video from youtube.



Thanks to the help of "TIG" it just works fine.

Like this

Code: Select all

Note how the size is set in the [flash=...], there is no src= or wrapping "", you change the path to include the /v/ not /embed/... and 'fullframe' etc don't work...

Umm, I just copied the code in Tig's last thread, substituted my video size in place of his, and put my link where his was, all I got was white box, no video, buttons or anything in it.
Using his code as copied exactly I saw the video and buttons etc, as posted in the prior message. So either I missed something or my alteration of his code wasn't right.
A simple solution would be real handy. Like inserting the YouTube embed code between URL tags, and it would work perfectly.

In case you are trying to embed YT videos, make sure to get the "old code" as what they are offering as default now is an iFrame embed which does not work here (mainly for security reasons)
