Tech Tip Of The Day- youtube edition

 

 

YouTube is awesome, because that’s where we get Britney Spears best-of compilations and Tech N9ne lyrics for our flow parties, but it’s also got quite some surprising and secret easter eggs that not many people know about.

 

The end.

 

Just kidding! Here’s  list of what we think are the best Easter Eggs on YouTube.

 

*Protuber is a free YouTube app on the iPhone which allows you to multitask while playing a video.

 

*If you pause a video on YouTube and type the numbers ‘1980’ you will get missiles firing at your video, and the ability to fight back.

 

 

 

 

* Pause a video on YouTube, then hold down the left arrow key for 2-3 seconds. Whilst holding down that key, press the up arrow. BAM! YOU’RE PLAYING SNAKE!

 

 

 

 

*Right click on any YouTube video and you can scroll down to the ‘Stats For Nerds’ option. Click on it and you get a rundown of statistics of the video you’re watching, including dimensions, frames and volume percentage.

 

 

 

 

*Type the word ‘repeat’ after youtube in the URL – for example: https://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch?v=pt8VYOfr8To. This will let you play the video on repeat!

 

Finally, don’t forget to check out www.bestofyoutube.com to get your weekly dose of YouTube awesomness.

Apple Videos

Here are some videos from the most recent Apple Event featuring the new iPads, the Apple Magic, the wonderful Mr Ive, and Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston as the narrator on the “Pencil” TV ad.

 

Way to be hip and happening with current pop culture there Apple. Also, way to use music and fancy images to make us all goosebumpy.

 

Enjoy friends!

iTunes Festival is over, boo. But here’s a highlight reel, yay!

 

Remember when we told you guys about the 2013 iTunes Festival in London? Yeah? Well, it’s almost over. Boo.

 

Hopefully you guys caught some of the awesome acts that shone during the 30 day festival – Kings Of Leon, The Lumineers, Queens of the stone age et al, and if you didn’t – well, here’s a highlight reel from Apple of what you missed.

 

 

 

 

Apple is also expected to have an E.P of the performances available in the Apple Store by the end of the year.

 

 

Yay Music!

 

 

 

New YouTube Mobile App feature!

 

 

Youtubers!

 

 

Good news! Very soon you will be able to download video using the mobile app on your phone or tablet AND watch said video later, when you’re offline for some weird reason.

 

 

Cool huh? Well, it’s like a 6 on coolness. Could definitely come in handy, definitely good for flights and camping and space flights.

 

 

But… some commercial partners, such as the music video service Vevo, have the option and are taking the option to not participate. Wah.

 

 

The service will still be free, still contain ads, won’t work for movies or TV episodes that it currently rents, and the downloaded video will work to watch offline for up to 48 hours.

 

 

Thanks, YouTube.
