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!

To change the size at which a video is displayed, use the following as your opening bracket: [youtube width=100 height=100], replacing 100 with the desired dimensional measurements (in pixels). (There's probably something to note about maintaining the aspect ratio or the lack of a need to maintain the aspect ratio... As the computer I'm currently at filters out embedded YouTube videos, I can't do any testing.)


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)

Here's a video that was uploaded today of a frum guy doing street magic in Times Square. I think he's pretty good, what do you guys think?

ETA: Here's the direct YouTube link https://youtu.be/Xllj-4EKMhs if you want to like and/or subscribe. It would be pretty cool if he goes viral.

*Disclaimer: Yes, I know the guy, but he knows nothing about me posting this.*

How long is his hand in that paper bag twisting the rubiks cube before he hands the bag over to be shaken. Not polished enough.

I watched the video again closely, and I'm still not sure I'm seeing what you're seeing. Are you referring to 50 seconds into the video? Also I think the coolest trick is the one with the 2 dollar bill.

Yes, from .46/7-.52/3.

The trick is to take a fully solved cube, give it a few coordinated turns to make it look unsolved. Then when putting it into the bag reverse those turns.

Notice at .34 how there are 3 oranges in a row, 2 of this, 2 of that. By turning a solved cube just a few times you can make it look unsolved.

Ya when I watched it again I saw that it looked pretty close to being solved, so I was a little disappointed :P. I still think he did a pretty good job with the trick though, because I can't tell at all that he's turning the cube in the bag to solve it.

How about the 2 dollar trick, any idea how he did it?

typical trick often done with tearing a newspaper. He has a folded $2 bill in his hand already. Look closely you will see the strang way he holds onto the $ when showing it to the participant

He did a decent job.

The 2 dollar bill involved a folded small bill in the back corner of the $1 bills blocked by his hand. He folds the $1's up small, flips over to the 2, then opens the 2 while the $1 remains folded in the back corner of the 2.

Shes assuming theyre trying to do it in one generation.

However, if every woman has a dozen kids and then all their daughters have a dozen kids, it becomes that much more feasible.
