Video Plugins

As I said before not all WordPress plugins on the internet are created equal. Believe me; I love them all! However they don’t always do what the description suggest. For example; Viper Video WordPress plugin did nothing for my WordPress blog, it froze and did not allow me to insert a video. The interface is cute though once you click on your kitchen button on your taskbar when writing a post but the menu extended outside of my post editor. It has buttons for damn near every video provider that is popular but when clicking the insert button in the text editor. NOTHING happens! Oh well! WPVideo is a simple that allows you to insert flash video allegedly the easy way, however, I don’t want to do anything but upload and click videos onto my WordPress blog. If you don’t mind very limited instructions along with writing a simple line of code into your blog post than this is the one for ya. My favorite is WordPress Video Plugin because it has a window that pops up and you can preview the video image before you hit insert. Sweet! Not to mention it does allow you to add videos from alot of video sources.

The WordPress Video plugin gets the star. Check out this filter for WordPress that displays videos from myvideo.de, youtube, google video, Brightcove, Aniboom, 123video.nl, MyspaceTV, Yahoo! Video, Veoh, Wandeo, Glumbert, Gametrailers, Gamevideos, LiveLeak, sevenload.de, clipfish.de, break.com, Metacafe, dailymotion.com, Vimeo, videotube, blip.tv, revver, IFILM, Tu.tv, grouper, Cellfish.com, Sumo.tv, Last.fm, Vsocial, teachertube, SlideShare, Jumpcut, MSN, GoalVideoz, Guba, wat.tv, Smotri.Com..and many more.

WordPress Plugins 2

I have to admit that I am a kid in a candy store when it comes to trying out WordPress plugins. The following plugins cause conflict in some form except the commerce WordPress plugins which I have yet to activate on my WordPress website. I have no use for them right now. I am keeping the WordPress plugins unactivated until the day comes for me to activate them on my powered by WordPress 2.6.1 blog. You will be able to find the link to download the WordPress plugins on www.google.com I prefer to download WordPress plugins from the official WordPress website and I will dabble with an WordPress plugin from a non WordPress website. It sort of like buyer beware when activating those plugins because they can cause havoc on your website.: :

Search Engine Optimization

I am curious about adding videos to my WordPress blog. This should be an interesting video for those interest in increasing their knowledge of Search Engine Optimization. Chris gives you the skinny on SEO known as Search Engine Optimization and building a strong presence on Google with the hope of increasing traffic to your site. This seems to be a major catch word for serious bloggers. I have not begun to realize exactly what that means in terms of what will it do for me and my WordPress blog?! Perhaps after watching several of Chris Perillo videos about Search Engine Optimization I will have a handle on SEO enough to get really excited about it.

WordPress Plugins

This is an extremely long list of my favorite WordPress plugins. It reads like an “Oprah’s” favorite things list she does in the winter of every year. My all time favorite WordPress plugin for my WordPress blog is WP-SpamFree 1.9.6.7 which has been true to its function since I’ve installed it on my WordPress blog. I can’t tell if Askimet is in the background working because it seems like overnight the comment spam and spambot has come to a complete halt. Believe it one not I was using concurrently several spam WordPress plugins to fight spam but it manage to seep throough these powerful tools until I discovered WP-SpamFree. I was getting bombarded with all kinds of spam before this goody. Platinum SEO pack is second best because it really is an all in one tool that is golden. The One Click upgrader and Instant Upgrader is King for any WordPress blog user to have in their list of favorite WordPress plugins. As you can see this is a very long list of WordPress plugins which I have been using on my WordPress blog with no conflict thus far. There are tons of WordPress plugins on the internet being developed by a lot of intelligent individuals who have a knack for html. Thank goodness for them because I wouldn’t have the patience to come up with the ingredients for a plugin even if someone offered me serious money to develop one. I don’t mind test driving any WordPress plugins on my blog. Pardon the missing direct links but this list, you can find the WordPress plugins or Google Enjoy the list!

Developer Tools

There are many tools on the market today for WordPress, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. I scratch my head trying to figure out who’s tool will I use today. chrispederick.com developer tools are worth taking a look at for downloading. Chris Pederick site quotes: “The Web Developer extension adds a menu and a toolbar to the browser with various web developer tools. It is designed for Firefox, Flock and Seamonkey, and will run on any platform that these browsers support including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux”. All kudos go to Chris Pederick for this handy developer tool for use with one of my favorite browser, Mozilla Firefox . It is very user friendly for non techies who aren’t familiar with developing, css or html for that matter. Just a new toy for you to learn. Your brain will love you for it!

Flickr Manager

I am test driving my Flickr Manager plugin for my WordPress blog. I am not sure if I like it yet because it disables the Headspace2 plugin for my WordPress blog. To find out more about the developer go to their webpage and give them some kudos. It is too late to messing around with html or script. Perhaps one day when I don’t have anything to do but figure out how to fix some script I will hit up the developer at Flickr Manager with a thousand question about how to fix this small glitch. In the meantime, I absolutely love the fact that I can save tons of space with by simply inserting a thumbnail into my WordPress blog by using the Flickr Manager! Clicking on the digital image will take you directly to my Flickr photostream. Ain’t blogging grand! Check out one of my favorite pets “Cloud”, he is one cool cat!

FancyZoom

If your looking for simplicity to add images to your WordPress blog. Install Fancyzoom, click and add then activate. FancyZoom works by zooming out your pictures instantly without navigating from your WordPress website. Just insert a thumbnail and when the picture inserted onto your WordPress blog, click it and it will zoom in, add captions too! You can download Fancyzoom directly from Panic’s blog. Look at how tiny this picture looks in this blog. It saved me tons of space and it looks much nicer in my WordPress blog. Simply click on the image to activate Fancyzoom. I love it! The only downside to this plugin is that it may stop working in older post or it may conflict with other WordPress plugins. FancyZoom will conflict with these two WordPress plugins. Instead of zooming in the plugin will zoom out. Oh well it was good while it lasted. There are sooo many WordPress photo manager plugins for your WordPress blog. I have yet to find a favorite besides the Flickr Manager.

Leica S2

OMG! Leica is sure to please alot of Pro-Consumers and Professional photographer with this astounding 37.5 mega-pixel metal body medium format sensor camera that’s hotter than the competition. Oh yeah, I did say that I was a fan of Canon camera’s for life but this beauty here makes you want to cheat a little. This baby has an all metal body, waterproof and much smaller than most of the DSLR’s on the market today. The new Leica S2 was built and designed in Germany. There are claims of being twice as fast as Hassablands H series cameras. Medium formats folks know what that mean; those really expensive cameras that cost an upward $30K and is totally out of reach for me at that price range. You have to visit Leica website to get the full skinny on this metal beauty because I am sure they can explain it a lot better than I can: Leica S2 is bring the mercedes of a camera; Leica will be releasing seven new bayonet-mountedS-series lens to really show what Leica can capture once you attached those to the Leica S2 Included in the line-up are a 24mm ultra-wide, 35mm wide, 70mm standard lens, 100mm ‘portrait’ lens, 120 mm macro, 180mm telephoto, and a 30mm tilt/shift lens. And though autofocus in design (with the exception of the 30 mm tilt/shift), manual focusing with electronic focus-confirmation is also possible with each of the S-series optics. Like the S2 camera body, the new lenses are also water and dustproof. Can you just imagine being able to store up to 400 Raw images on a 32 GB compact flash card, I thought they were sooo yesteryear. Better dust those babies off because hey you just might be able to get some use out of them with the new Leica S2. The price has not been release but I can assure you will need some serious coins for this metal beauty. I think one day I might have to break up with Canon but in the meantime I just drool. New Lens will be available too! Leica is not for the faint at heart as far as price tag; this baby is expensive$$$$$$!

The H33t

I was reading an email that I got from H33t and wondered how many people thought about downloading Trojans and viruses to their computer simply to test drive an item from a torrent. A curious individual sent a question pertaining to just that to H33t and they said. P2P sharing is very popular today and a lot of folks are downloading files at rapid speed. Comcast is limiting broadband to serious abusers and has been sending out warning letters to those who are downloading 1000′s of gigabytes each month. I wonder what the P2P groups are going to say about this new reform change to bandwidth. :

[singlepic=15,320,240,,]

i received this pm from a new member and i my reply may be of interest to all members especially if you are a very recent visitor
Curious person wrote:

Thank you for the welcome. A friend says this is a good site to download and not worry about viruses or anything like that.  Is this true?  I am not that experienced at this and I do not want to ruin my computer you know i hear all this stuff about p2p but like I said a friend told me about this. I do see its alot different then other p2p I seen on other peoples computers. Please give me a little insight about this I would appreciate it.  I was goin to download the torrant earlier then got cold feet.  Ok thanks alot take it easy.

H33t reply:

i cannot vouch for all external torrents (torrents from other sites) but h33t torrents are generally problem free

if you take h33t torrents (also known as internal torrents) you can speak with the uploader by sending a pm and view the comments under the torrent for any problems. if there is a problem with a torrent it first appears in the torrent comments, then in the torrent verification section of the forum. a moderator is usually very quick to react to reports and remove problems when they are found to be genuine

as a general guide: movies (avi, wmv etc) pictures (jpg, gif, png, etc) and audio (mp3, flac, ogg etc) are 99.99999999999% problem free. it is very rare to find a virus/trojan within these file types

warez is a completely different matter. many virus scanners will falsely report a trojan because of the presence of a patch or keygen. 95% of problem reports about h33t torrents are false positives (the scanner is in error). visit the forum and see the stickies at the top of the torrent verification section for guidance, you will find an easy online method for testing files for problems using all of the big antivirus engines

also new warez can hold exploits which are so new they are not yet identified by the virus engines, it may take more than a year for a new trojan to become known to the public and added to the antivirus signature databases. new warez are the primary distribution means for new viruses and trojans. again, read the forum for how to safely handle this type of software, warez do not need to be a problem if you know what you are doing

as you can see we are realistic about the risks. we focus on education for downloaders, labelling of risky torrents and a quick reaction when problems are reported. combine our vigilance with an alert and participating community and you discover h33t is one of the safest torrents sites there is

welcome to the h33t, enjoy grin The H33t
