Comparing the Bills

I shared this video on my other blog, but just in case you missed it, here it is again:

Cory as Bill Sykes in his school production of Oliver.

Since I uploaded this, I’ve been watching other videos, of other schools performing this musical and other people playing this part. I may be a little prejudiced, but so far I think Cory’s one of the better Bills.

Share Just a Portion of a YouTube Video

A while back I wanted to share a portion of a YouTube video, but I didn’t know of an easy way to do it. So I ended up not sharing the video at all. Today I found Splicd, and it does just that, easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Find the YouTube video you want to share.
  2. Enter the YouTube url and then the beginning and end points of the clip you want to share,
  3. Splicd generates it for you and gives you the link so you can share it with your friends.

Here’s the portion of the Pretty Woman video that I wanted to share before. The only thing that would make it better is if you could embed it that way.

Download and Save YouTube Videos

If you’ve ever wanted to save YouTube videos to your computer or be able to use them on your iPod, MP3 player, or iPhone, now you can. Tubetilla is FREE software that lets you do just that. No spyware, no adware, no registration – just free.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I think this software could come in handy one of these days. There are some video tutorials showing how to use it, too.

The End of Slideshows?

I ran across this today and thought it looked interesting. Animoto takes your pictures and your music, and automatically creates videos. It’s free to create short 30-second videos, and they have premium services for longer ones. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but I signed up. When I create a video, I’ll have to post it so you can see how it turns out. In the meantime, you can view some examples on the site.
