November 1st, 2009 Comments off

Halloween day, 31 Oct 2009, was a fun filling day in Bristol. The city centre was filled with zombies. The Halloween day parade in the evening was the highlight. I could manage to capture five min clip with my iPhone.

Less lighting and 3MP camera resulted a not so great clip. However, you could feel the theme of the event from the video.

Random YouTube tips

August 23rd, 2009 Comments off

YouTube Watching YouTube videos are always fun. Here are some random tips that will give you a better YouTube experience.

You could see the HQ button on the  player that toggles the video quality between Normal and High quality.


Login to YouTube, which is pre-requisite for this tip, and go select Account->Playback Setup. You will get the following page.


Based on the your Internet speed you can default the video playback quality to either Normal or High. If you are not sure of your Internet speed, then you can leave this with YouTube to select the playback quality.

In the same page, you can also find the option to turn-of annotations permanently for all videos. I would personally suggest to turnoff annotations, because most of the annotations in YouTube videos are useless; also distract the video playback.

Select your preferences and click on Save Changes.

Enjoy watching YouTube videos!
