Fed up with YouTube pulling my videos, here is MutantPopTV – really a bunch of FLVs and MP4s on my server, but a hopefully permanent home for these videos – as well as my Vimeo and YouTube videos. As with any TV channel you’ve got a mix here – from my mashup music videos, full VJ sets, video podcasts and random DJing/drunken rambles and old art degree videos – many hours of watching, and as it’s on shuffle you’d always get a random next video – or select from the list if there’s something you like the look of.
I’ll add more as I find it or export it at the higher quality here – this should play fine on broadband connections 512Mb or faster – if not let it preload, as it’s not live streaming you won’t miss a thing
Talking of live streaming I’ve now signed up to Ustream and Listen2MyRadio so if you’re around on Wednesday evenings give it a whirl!
Oh and before you rip any videos from here I’d be happy to send you a link to a hi-res QT H264 or Photo JPEG MOV if I have it (and most of them I do) rather than anyone trying to use or play low-res FLVs – just click ‘contact’ above.
There will be some repeats but basically the oldest or uncensored/not blocked videos are at the bottom, middle is YouTube videos which is most but not all of my videos (some get blocked) and my newer videos will be on my Vimeo (the top slideshow) – I’ll only get round to uploading them onto my server if they get pulled. You can also go to the Vimeo page for a full-res download!
Also I ran the Videotones project with Eric Kleptone & Pete ‘Butch Auntie’ Wallace – I had the idea of doing videos for all of the 24 Hours mashup album and got friends involved. We nearly got there bar a few…the linking theme I came uo with for the proposed DVD (not completed due to not having enough videos completed) was television hence why nearly all the videos have a common TV theme or a TV popping up somewhere.
EDIT: You will need the Flash plugin to see the Vimeo and YouTube videos – especially in Firefox and Opera (other latest browsers without Flash should at least see the older videos). Yes I’ve tried and tried to make it all HTML5-friendly but until one format is decided for video (thanks W3C! Not.) and supported equally on all devices/browsers then I can’t easily support 2/3 different formats per video – not in a playlist form anyhow! Also YouTube haven’t created a reliable HTML5-friendly RSS feed yet with cross-domain authentication? Looks like MP4 will be the format of choice, and when that settles hopefully cross-browser support on video players with playlists will be possible. Until then those who don’t have Flash & can’t play the videos below please click on the Vimeo & YouTube links above – not all the videos are there but those that are should be able to be seen in compatible formats.
