Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "https" - if it does, change it to "http" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the you tube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. this will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!



How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

Ring Pro and Ecobee are very useful for me.

These are called "smart bulbs"? How about the designers, and those that made this video?



Check out the comments on YouTube

This is nuts! Sounds like a broken record and I wanted to smash the dumb bulb halfway through. Turn on for 8 seconds........ turn off for 2 seconds.... turn on for 8 seconds........ turn off for 2 seconds....... I can't get it out of my head!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I think the most hilarious part is at 1:36, which means you have to try the entire 1st process, if that doesn't work (maybe because it's an older firmware, and maybe just because you counted your seconds wrong) you need to try the other method....
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

For some reason this video evokes memories of gorish ISIS videos.

LOL as if the plane has feelings and you need to give "respect" to her.
This and all planes are private property owned and bought by people/companies to bring them in money, and when they go out of service it's time to make the last little money possible by selling it for scrap metal, that's the whole thing!! Very simple!!
Not sure where that word respect fell in here!?!
I'm going crazy, wanna come along?

747s have lots of fans and nostalgia. Is this indeed the best way to make money out of it? Recently one was sunk to create a diving attraction. Is there that much value in the scrap metal?

Dunno if this is the best way to make money, but I do know that it was funny to me that people feel that you need to give respect to ... an airplane
