More techie fun. It’s actually fairly easy to do, it was the idea that was brilliant (is there an emoji for an exploding head?)

Plex media server has a “watch later” function, that can be used for watching *selected* YouTube videos. See a video while browsing, and want to watch it later? Simply open the video page and click a browser bookmark. When you next open Plex, it will be listed under your “watch later” items.

A combination of changes at YouTube and Ricoh’s new video driver (UVC Blender) now means that it is straightforward to stream 360° video live.

I’ve experimented a little with it, and am not yet sure if it is good enough for what I want to do with it. The picture is what it has always been – not brilliant, but ok; but on Live streaming, I’ve experienced some very poor sound; worse than when just uploading video, and irrespective of whether I use the camera’s microphone or external mikes.

I’ve been frequenting the website and YouTube channel of a guy called Justin Sandercoe. Some of you will have already come across him, as he’s been getting some good press; but for those of you who haven’t, I’d really recommend taking a look.

1980’s pop star, Kim Wilde – together with her brother Ricky, on guitar – singing their way back home on the London Underground after an apparently boozy MagicFM Christmas Party.

One of my set-top boxes (not the YouView one) does a decent job of playing YouTube over the TV, so on odd occasions, I sit and browse for amusement or inspiration.

I was doing this before heading for bed last night, and came across the video of Seal’s Kiss From A Rose. I have always liked this song, so I followed some of the links that came up when the video ended, and found the following two videos, both wonderful, for two very different reasons.

I always wondered which of my songs might bring me to the notice of the general public, outside of my little group of friends. I had no idea it would be “Space Is Big”, written for to teach to a class of kids, in 2010.

Then took it, and sang it to a group of people, including Peggy Seeger, who apparently quite liked it.
