It’s time now for another edition of ‘Make My Videos Popular,’ the only blog which promotes depwl9992 and all of his (my) lego animations. As of now, I’ve uploaded around four new videos, all less than 30 seconds in length. They are SlaveDriver, Spaceman, Riding the Horse and JohnWayneMount. I’m going to go there in a sec and open it up to anonymous comments and things (they’ll all still be censored, but I’m looking for feedback from those who don’t have their own channels). So check them out and see if you like ’em! Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/Depwl9992
- So I am currently uploading all the animation videos that haven’t been uploaded to my channel. They include the following:
- John Wayne Horse Mount
- Horse and Rider
I have more, but they are bigger than average, so I won’t post them now. Well, maybe I will if I think hard enough. They’re not really THAT big; just 2MB each. I can do it. The last one (Horse and Rider) was 600K…
The other two that I can upload now are Walk in-Roll out, Slave Driver and Spaceman. I’m still not 100% sure on the Basketball Stars Original.
Yes, I will do it. Right now, even!
Ha! So, update with the Youtube channel thing: I’ve accepted the new beta design thing that they offer. See it at http://www.youtube.com/depwl9992.
In addition to that, you may see a couple short (10 second) videos I uploaded a while ago but never announced. Be ready for a couple new ones soon (not Cowman unfortunately. That one’s gone so stagnant.) I have an equally short one called Spaceman. And I was requested to put the original Basketball Stars video up which I had previously taken down for privacy issues. So you might just see that version as well.
Let’s see….what else? If you want to see anything, just let me know. I’m all open for ideas.
So…we bought a Rubik’s Cube last month, and as soon as I got home (I don’t like them that well), I mixed it up and it has now been sitting for 2 weeks without anyone touching it. I guess none of us like it. Well, just today I took the initiative to go reasearching, because to me, the thing absolutely has no logic to it. However, I’ve been proven wrong. I’ve yet to try this tutorial, but I think it’ll work.
Dan Brown Rubik Tutorial – Enter his channel at your own risk. Even with no sound he reminds me of a slight freak.:)
Sweet!! I got a comment and some ratings on my videos. They’re finally becoming public, I guess.
I’ve just discovered a sweet new game called Linerider. Probably you’ve already heard of it…
You can check out the website: http://www.linerider.com.
I recorded it using the open-source software CamStudio. It’s awesome, because the framerate is something like 60fps, which none of the other screen capture video programs do very well. It plays back a bit fast, but hey, as long as it’s smooth, I’m happy.
Okay, well, anyway, here’s the video:
Why do I even bother letting you know about these things? Never mind. We’ve got new videos, and the newest has been deemed “HILARIOUS” according to a friend from church, who gave me five stars on it (oh yeah, uh huh, oh yeah (DISCO LINGO)).
Anyway, here it is:
Okay, so I’ve left the playlists on here, and with my resizing scheme, it looks as if they are going to work. So I’m not going to take them back down. Enjoy them from the privacy of my own blog and avoid the advertisements that so easily plague us. Sounds biblical.
84% on a math test. Wow I haven’t done that well since, well, College Algebra three or four years ago. This brings my average for Calc 2 up to 82.5%. Looks like I might just pass the class (and get a high GPA to boot).
Anyway, it’s Christie’s birthday, so check out http://www.youtube.com/depwl9992 for the latest videos (one of which we recorded last night for the birthday and the very newest that we did a couple months ago). Everyone who’s seen the basketball video has just about laughed their heads off. So hope you enjoy that one too. I’ll keep the birthday video featured for a little while, then I’ll go back to the “most recent.”
Cowman update: it is NOT coming along. The director is fairly busy with her senior year of high-school, so she hasn’t had much time to mix any of the videos. But hopefully I can get ahold of MY legos so that I can work on a video of my own (yeah right).
That’s all for now.
For Youtube embeds, turn off “Enable Float Alignment” under Customize > Settings > Formatting
All playlists should be embedded with “width=350,” and “height=300” on both the object AND embed tag
Single video embeds are defaulted to 400×300 for now, although I think that the above “350×300” will work for those too.
These are approximate sizes, as you will have a little bit of margin on the sides, but not enough to worry about. The thing I’m not liking is Youtube’s default sizing, which somehow chops off the sides of the player and in some cases shifts the player over so much that half of it has disappeared. So far this is working. I’ll test this for a couple of months and see how it turns out.
