Vidler Video Storage

Player and free video storage

"You can upload many videos at once, and in various formats, too.(mov .avi .wmv .mpeg).

You also won't have to worry about file size - just keep any video you upload under 500 Mb.

Timed Tags
Moments on the timeline of your video are taggable, so you can classify and share instances in time. Timed tags are searchable, too - a great way to explore the content on viddler.com

Timed Comments
Your position in the timeline of a video determines where your comment will be posted to, which brings the discussion to a whole new level!

Use Your Webcam
Got a web camera? You can use Viddler to record footage directly from the camera to the website. There's no third-party software



"Viddler is very different from other video-delivery based websites, because we stream our videos instead of having the user download it.

That means you get to watch videos without having to wait for the entire video to load.

This is especially useful when you want to view the last few minutes of a very long video.

It's a secure system and prevents other people from watching the video (in ways they're not supposed to) or ripping the video off the site.

Video that you host with Viddler cannot be stolen, or used in any fashion, unless you set your sharing options to allow it."

Google Search Tips

Drill down to the answer


20 search tips to be used with Google.

Here are a few:

  • Either/or. Google normally searches for pages that contain all the words you type in the search box, but if you want pages that have one term or another (or both), use the OR operator -- or use the "" symbol (pipe symbol) to save you a keystroke.


  • Quotes. If you want to search for an exact phrase, use quotes.


  • Not. If you don't want a term or phrase, use the "-" symbol.


  • Similar terms. Use the "~" symbol to return similar terms.
  • Definitions. Use the "define:" operator to get a quick definition.
  • Vertical search. Instead of searching for a term across all pages on the web, search within a specialized field. Google has a number of specific searches, allowing you to search within blogs, news, books, and much more

DOCTYPE

Customize



At the top of an HTML file source, you may see some code that indicates the version of HTML that is going to be used.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">

The O'Reilly Net.com has a discussion:
DOCTYPE Explained.

"There are three variants on HTML 4.01, for example:
  • HTML 4.01 Strict, which describes the structural portions of HTML 4.01 and does not provide any frame-related markup.
  • HTML 4.01 Transitional, which includes the presentational markup such as >B< and >FONT<, but does not include frame-related markup.
  • HTML 4.01 Frameset, which is the same as HTML 4.01 Transitional except that it adds a description of frame-related markup."
