Youtube - You know that site with videos and all. Yeah! It turns out that its quite popular and you happen to visit and use it quite often. Instead of just searching and playing here are some top Youtube URL tricks that you should know about: 1. View high quality videos

Youtube gives you the option to switch to high quality videos for some of the videos, however you can check if a video is available in high quality format by appending ‘&fmt=18′(stereo, 480 x 270 resolution) or ‘&fmt=22′(stereo, 1280 x 720 resolution) for even higher quality.
2. Embed Higher Quality Videos

While the above trick works for playback, if however you want to embed hig quality videos you need to append “&ap=%2526fmt%3D18″ and “&ap=%2526fmt%3D22″ to the embed url.
3. Cut the chase and link to the interesting part

Linking to a video where the real action starts at 3 minutes 22 seconds, wondered if you could make it start at 03:22? You are in luck. All you have to do is add #t=03m22s (#t=XXmYYs for XX mins and YY seconds) to the end of the URL.
4. Hide the search box


The search box appears when you hover over an embedded video. To hide the search box add ‘&showsearch=0′ to the embed url.
5. Embed only a part of Video


Just append ‘&start=30′ to skip first 30s of the video. In general you can modify the value after start= to the number of seconds you want to skip the video for.
6. Autoplay an embedded video

Normally when you embed a Youtube video and load the page, the player is loaded and it sits there waiting for you to hit the play button. You can make the video play automatically by adding ‘&autoplay=1′ to the url part of the embed code.
7. Loop an embedded video

Append ‘&loop=1′ to make the video start again without user intervention after it reaches the end. (Um, I would use caution when using this feature - Scuzz)
8. Disable Related Videos


Publishing your content in the form of Youtube video? Don’t want people to see other people’s content that may be related but may as well be in competition to you? Just add ‘&rel=0′ to the end of the url part of the embed code and you just turned off the related video suggestions!
9. Bypass Youtube Regional Filtering

Some videos are only available in certain parts of the world. Your IP Address is used to determine your location and then allow or deny access to the video. Change the url from http://www.yout[spaceputhereintentionally]ube.com/watch?v=<somecode> to http://www.youtube.com/v/<somecode>

10. Download Video

Although not inherently a youtube trick but useful all the same for downloading videos. Just change youtube to kickyoutube in the url of the video and it will take you to kickyoutube.com with all the options for downloading the video you were watching.

Another good trick to do if you make and upload videos to Youtube, is to put the words " www.Club700XX.com " in the movie often. :D Helps bring more people to our site! hehe

Great tips scuzz, thanks! I didn't know some of those. :tup:

Video Format

Scuzz

What software do you use to edit your video so other people can view it, at this moment I'm using movie maker thru Vista but if I send it to someone that does not have Vista, they can not see it and also Movie Maker is a memory grabber, if my video is 200 megs and add some music to it which adds about another 12 megs, once the movie maker has publish the video, it's around 500 megs. Need to find some software that will let me edit the video with adding some audio without making the file so big, it's hard to send to other people.

Thanks,
JoeB

I use Windows Movie Maker. I've made videos both on Vista and XP platforms with positive results. Also, the OS shouldn't matter on weather or not others can view the material. You should have advance options that allow you to play with the quality settings of the videos and whatnot.

Now I want a better video recorder. I rode for two days this past weekend and recorded most of the time. The sucky part is that AGAIN most of the video was dirt moving under the quad. I had some cool stuff on there too.

Grrrr.

Joe,

What file format are you sending them? You should be going to "File" >> "Save Movie File" and then selecting "My computer" as to where you want to save your movie. Follow the on screen prompts and then the best thing to do is to upload it to youtube, then send the people you want to see it the link youtube gives you for it.

Make sure you're not sending them the "Project" File.

That would be the best way - and of course, how I do it ;)

What recorder are you using, I have a GoPro installed on my helmet and works great, I'm now using AVS software which is great since I can convert it to a flash media or even to ITunes format so I can watch it thru my IPod, the only bad thing, it degrades the video since the size is set to a smaller size to save space. When I did try to view thru Window under xp, it would not work and stating the software to play this video is not set for this version. Weird!!!

Never used youtube, how big of a file can you upload?
the file is saved as a wmv and was edited/saved under Vista 64. Tend to wonder if Vista is causing the issue

Make sure that when you convert the video you still have a copy of the original.

I'm using the old ATC2K for my videos. I want the gopro.

the file is saved as a wmv
It has a maximum file time length of ten minutes. Youtube converts and compresses files so file size isn't ever an issue.

.wmv is a common file type and can be viewed on almost any Windows machine.
