iPhone to TV: Stream video wirelessly


images

Video Stream, like AirVideo or StreamToMe, is an app that streams video from PCs and Macs to iOS devices with the help of a companion program installed on the main machine. It’ll re-encode on the fly to make virtually any format play nice with Apple’s fussy gadgets, and you can choose to download those re-encoded copies to your device for local playback. Nice.

But the new update allows you to control Video Stream from another iOS device, too, meaning you can plug one of your iWhatevers into the TV, pump video to your big screen, and control it on the couch from your other iWhatever. From the looks of things on the video, an iPhone 4 can handle HD playback just fine, though I’d imagine that might not be the case for the old third-gen iPod Touch that’s been gathering dust in the shoebox in your closet. And true, you won’t get the Netflix cover art mosaic sexiness of the real AppleTV, but if you’re just trying to watch those episodes of Modern Family you downloaded, this will get the job done. Video Stream’s new update is live in the App Store for $ 3, though there’s a free version you can try first.

Stanford Student Accepts YouTube Job via Twitter


Stanford computer science student Feross Aboukhadijeh has recently accepted a job from YouTube CEO Chad Hurley.  Feross has created http://ytinstant.com which is just like Google instant.  Many users aren’t familiar with the term ‘Instant.’  This is the feature used where you type into the google feed and it switches according to what you type.  This is now done through youtube, thanks to Feross.

This is quite shocking.  Feross will still attend Standford University while working for YouTube.  But, it’s amazing how quickly word spreads.  His website hit one million views in less than 10 days.  Expect YouTube to integrate the ‘Instant’ feature right away!

Congratulations to Feross Aboukhadijeh!

Ouch! …That Hurts! Video’s Included!


The past week has been the debut of many Television shows.  Most notably are: Two and a Half Men, The Office, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and The Amazing Race.

For those of you who haven’t seen ‘The Amazing Race,’ it follows teams of two people (who are somehow related) throughout the world completing various tasks.  While in London, it was their task to fire a watermelon, yes a watermelon, at a suit of armor.  Why?  …because thats good TV!

Contestant Claire made television history by taking a watermelon to the face! You do feel bad for the girl, but at the same time you can’t help but laugh.  In the picture to the right, you can see the Watermelon flying back at her face.  Here is a short video for those who want a quick laugh.  Here is the video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB136BPHmaQ – the girl takes it like a champ and doesn’t even cry!

This made me think of other videos that fall into the “Ouch! …That Hurts!” category.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuFcXWvSNzY&feature=related – Soccer ball to face

Our Favorite Serial Killer Returns


dexter-wired-small.png

Tomorrow is the Premiere for one of TV’s most anticipated TV Show’s – Dexter.  Before I start my post, I’m going to try and avoid any spoilers.  With last season coming to a ‘shocking’ end, everyone is wondering what will happen during this season of Dexter. That includes myself!  Tomorrow’s premiere will begin at 9 pm (Eastern) and should answer many questions that die hard fans have.

For those of you who haven’t seen the trailer for Season 5 which was shown at Comic Con, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUbCMbW-BRE –  WARNING: DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE END OF SEASON 4!!!

This was shown at Comic Con and since the showing of the video, many people are wondering what angle the writers are going to take this season.

Hears what I can tell you.  This season will not feature a predominate antagonist.  In other words, we will not see a villain like Trinity (John Lithgow) like last season.  There will be a villain, but that will not be the main focus.  So, from my perspective, I feel as if this season will focus on Dexter and his relationship to other people.

What do you think?

Katy Perry ‘Cut’ From Sesame Street


Hello folks!  I was browsing ABC’s website this morning and I stumbled upon an interesting video that I want to share with everyone.  In this video – http://tinyurl.com/seasmestreetPop Icon, Katy Perry makes her ‘debut’ on the infamous children’s show, Sesame Street.  I encourage my readers to view at least several segments of the video because it really gets you thinking about pop culture today.

ent-100923-katyperry-elmojpg-f01ac5a1750912b9_large.jpg

After Katy Perry’s video was ‘leaked’ online before the broadcast of the Sesame Street episode, many parents were outraged of Perry’s dress.  Parents claimed she was exposing too much of herself and that her dress was too low exposing her cleavage.  Many parents were outraged and didn’t want their children to see this clip, even though its broadcasted on the internet…specifically on YouTube.

Sesame Street proclaims they removed the video based on the feedback from parents.  Yet, from the interview with “Elmo” and “Grover” (scary that I’m citing an interview with fictional puppets!), it seems they would like to have Katy back on the show.  Probably covering herself up this time.  Sesame street has been known for having celebrities make appearances on their show.  This is great for Sesame Street because it allows parents to connect to the show as well.

Seeing how this is a children’s show, I’m not shocked to see Sesame Street pull the video.  They don’t want to damage their reputation.  On the other hand, I’m a little shocked they would produce the video and have it ready to air and then decide to ‘cut’ the skit.  What do you think?

I thought I’d post several other videos of celebrities on Sesame Street because I find it quite amusing.  Hope you enjoy!
