+Stacy Sanchez The forced integration was just their attempt at unifying their sprawl. The douchebags in the valley press turned it into a negative. There's nobody forced to use G+. There never has been. We are all here because we want to be. So their published live stream numbers wouldn't be effected by those not using the live stream.

I know how this guy feels, I got washed up on the rocks once in my 16' Wilderness Systems SOT.  You learn to strap your gear down.  Notice the balloon tied to the rod holder?   I miss ocean kayaking.  +Bruce Shark he let your friend go with a steel hook, not stainless, so I am sure he is ok.  Tell him not to play TAG to rough, eh?

Decided I am going to start documenting my tinkering with #ffmpeg  and the results I have found.  I have not been able to find a good central resource for Tips and Tricks with FFMPEG. So, between this and Youtube, I think I'll give this a try.

 Original Video http://youtu.be/TpwOOh-pC8I

 CRF18               http://youtu.be/laBKGhgHIwo

 CRF21               http://youtu.be/IXM52SwcEcU

 CRF24               http://youtu.be/9RNHv8VcbYk

 CRF28               http://youtu.be/Yje9YvS8IVE

 CRF32               http://youtu.be/7-JRPzbSne4

Below are the results from a program called #VQMT
  (available here:  http://mmspg.epfl.ch/vqmt )
executed on several compressed videos from my #dashcam  from +Dash Cam Diaries .  

The original video was encoded as with the following characteristics:
  codec_name=h264
  codec_long_name=H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10
  width=1280
  height=720
  has_b_frames=0
  pix_fmt=yuv420p
  level=50
  r_frame_rate=30/1
  bit_rate=6562926

Using #ffmpeg  , I transcoded these videos using the following example command line:

  ffmpeg -i 05550000.AVI -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p -preset veryslow -movflags +faststart -crf 18  -an 05550000_CRF18_veryslow.mp4

The resulting videos were encoded as with the following characteristics:
  codec_name=h264
  codec_long_name=H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10
  width=1280
  height=720
  pix_fmt=yuv420p
  level=50
  r_frame_rate=30/1
  bit_rate= [Varies]

I transcoded this clip at a CRF of 18, 21, 24, 28, and 32. 

The file sizes resulted as follows:
  Original  26MB      6562926 bps
  CRF18    35MB      9764772 bps
  CRF21    24MB      6575259 bps
  CRF24    15MB      3930521 bps
  CRF28   6.4MB      1766512 bps
  CRF32    3.0MB       813526 bps

I love these bins, so handy, especially after you have enough to move bins around as needed.

Oh San Francisco
The city's Public Works agency is testing a pee-repellant paint on walls in areas that have been saturated with urine. San Francisco's director of public works, Mohammed Nuru - whose Twitter handle is @MrCleanSF - got the idea when he read on social media about the use of the paint in Hamburg, Germany's nightclub district to stop beer drinkers from relieving themselves in the street. The paint, called Ultra-Ever Dry, is sold by Ultratech Internat...

This is awesome, Metallica and flute go well together.
 
Interesting ...
We’ve seen Europeans cover famous rock and metal bands in an American folk style---Finnish musicians playing AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and Dio in Appalachian folk, to be exact. Now, prepare to hear famous rock and metal bands in a distinctively European folk style:
