    Hey!!

    I’ve finally sorted out how to download youtube stuff to my little player :bounce_fl

    unfortunately what I’d got it for – the channel 4 series etc on youtube – seem not to be able to be downloaded

    (it has to be the 240 lower pixels)

    so am on a documentary blitz

    has anyone got any interesting ones they’ve seen to recommend?

    or anything really as my brain has decided to freeze and I’m stuck on what to search for!!! :hopeless:

    you can get a program called format factory, then just download the high res files and convert them, it takes a while but is worth it..

    Format Factory – Free media file format converter

    I’ve been told by reliable sources they show films like this to young Ofcom workers (who might otherwise be more sympathetic) to explain to them why pirate stations should be closed down..

    There’s a great list of documentaries here:

    DOCUMENTARY FILMS YOU MUST SEE (AND SHARE!) | Facebook

    If you search for them, most are on google or youtube. I use the following website to download and save them to the format / size of your choice:

    Download Online Videos Save Direct Easily – Savevid.com

    My current favorite documentaries:

    A Short Film about Chilling.

    -4854535871011935279

    “A Short Film About Chilling’ was filmed in Ibiza in 1990 just before the island exploded into the worldwide consciousness as the spiritual home of club culture. It followed a group of DJ’s, bands and clubbers intent on ‘losing it’ in the island’s legendary nightclubs which are described by one wag in the film as being like “Disneyland for the club-goer”.

    Since then the island has gone on to become a rights of passage summer destination for a generation of young people from around the world and the film was, for a time, repeated on a seemingly regular cycle on British TV as well as often being programmed in cultural retrospectives and name-checked in all the right books on British youth culture.”

    9-11: Blueprint for Truth with Richard Gage, AIA | 9-11 News | World for 9-11 Truth | W9T.org

    “Over 1,387 architects and engineers call for a new investigation into 9-11. Learn why in this worldwide-acclaimed multimedia presentation by San Francisco Bay area architect, Richard Gage, AIA, who provides the overwhelming evidence of explosive controlled demolition of all 3 World Trade Center high-rise buildings on September 11, 2001.”

    The King of Kong:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0923752/

    “Diehard video game fans compete to break World Records on classic arcade games.”

    Confessions of a Superhero:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1016164/

    “Chronicles the lives of four mortal men and women who work as characters on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard.”

    There’s also a lot of great stuff from DemocracyNow.org here:

    http://www.democracynow.org/shows

    And searching youtube for any of the following authors will return lots of interesting material as well: Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, Alan Dershowitz, Norman Finkelstein, Avi Shlaim, Robert Fisk and John Pilger…

    a very effective tactic, I would imagine!

    Documentaries sometimes conjure up images of war-torn countries and depressing facts that, while engrossing, might end up being a bummer. And while all of that can definitely be true, especially regarding more contemporary non-fiction cinematic work, there are just as many ways to feel great and upbeat at the end of a viewing experience. Whether it’s feeling inspired by the underdog winning a video game championship or spelling bee or wanting to give back to the environment after seeing people who devote their lives to caring for parrots and helping out children, plenty of feel-good documentaries exist on satellite tv and the silver screen.

    But sometimes, rather than that approach to a cheerful documentary, it’s better to just feel like fun is happening.
