DVD: The Death Knell of Laserdisc

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below Well, it had a good run. Although Laserdisc could never really get off the ground, it had a reasonable showing in the high end video market. Intended as a mass market product, Laserdisc would never get there. But DVD... well that's a whole other story. In 7 or 8 years, DVD went from being introduced to being everywhere, and it is still selling pretty well in the face of streaming services such as Netflix. Just how long DVD can cling to life remains to be seen, but you can still stroll on into any big box store and pick up a DVD player and some movies to go with it. This video tells how DVD got started, and why it was able to succeed where Laserdisc failed. The clips used in this video are the property of their respective owners.

Rusty Deadlocked Vise - Perfect Restoration

Broken Vise Restoration - Gressel Switzerland. In this video i'm restoring a broken swiss vise. Like, comment, subscribe. I bought this vise from a friend for 20$. It was super rusty and dirty, one part was missing, two screws were broken off and the movable jaw was completely stuck. Gressel is very well known in switzerland for making very good, if not the best vises. That fact made it absolutely worth to restore it. They still produce this type of vise today, they just made some very small changes over the years. I found out that they built their vises in this style until 1991. So it's at least 27 years old. It had the rough jaws on, but you could always choose if you want them with rough or flat jaws when you buy a new one. I'm not a fan at all of the rough jaws, because they ruin every surface of clamped pieces. So I decided to put flat jaws on. I still restored the rough ones and I'm going to keep them. I restored this vise for myself. I hope you like my work and the video.

INTERSTELLAR - Movie Endings Explained (2014) Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey sci-fi film

INTERSTELLAR - Movie Endings Explained (2014) Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey sci-fi film SUBSCRIBE for more JoBlo Original Videos HERE: https://goo.gl/R9U81J Movie endings, they're usually pretty straight forward right? Everything pays off, the main characters learn something, and our heroes ride off into the sunset. Sometimes though, we don't get the typical ending from a movie, we get something much more nuanced, complex and open ended. The kind of endings that leave things up in the air for all of us to debate and theorise on until we're blue in the face. With Movie Endings Explained, we aim to delve into some of the more ambiguous and mysterious endings to films that have left audiences scratching their heads for years, and to attempt to explain them. In most cases, a definitive answer isn't really there, so we definitely want to hear from YOU on how you interpret the various endings we'll be discussing with this series. This time, we enter the wormhole of Christopher Nolan's 2014 science fiction epic INTERSTELLAR. After successfully tackling various genres in his inimitable big budget blockbuster style, Nolan took to the stars for this time-and-space bending melodrama. Like any Nolan movie, it fared well at the box office and with critics, but not all were quick to heap praise onto his latest magnum opus. The third act and indeed the ending of INTERSTELLAR left little to be desired for some movie goers, with some flat out balking at the film's outlandish conclusion (following a solid two hours of fairly plausible and theoretically sound science) and others simply not understanding it. So let's discuss the film's fantastical ending, set inside a mysterious tesseract, and much like Matthew McConaughey's Cooper, we'll float around, musing as to what it all means!

The original PlayStation is a pretty neat thing. Using the CD as a storage medium was a smart move. But, Sony needed to add anti-piracy features to the disc to prevent miscreants from making bootleg copies of Crash Bandicoot. This video tells the story of how that works, why it wasn’t infallible, and also proposes a potentially impervious solution (24 years late, though).

Here’s that paper on reading optical discs. It’s a good read:
