Ricoh Theta to YouTube 360 on a Mac
The easiest path for me to get Theta video on YouTube using a Mac ended up being . . .
- Change file from m4v to mov – just rename the file and confirm.
- Open the renamed video file with the Spatial Media Metadata Injector program
- Save it
- Upload to YouTube and wait a bit as it’ll take a while after upload for it to become 360 interactive but it does get there.
When working with Google Forms, there are two elements- the sheet (where the responses go) and the form. It’s not obvious how you might allow another user to copy both a form and a sheet in Google. So . . . assuming you set the document so that anyone can see it (or share it directly with whomever) . . . You can append copy to the form URL and it’ll copy the blank spreadsheet and the form. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1pf0xf1G_-C-p9QXjw1L5BjvZC1SHTGd71hvGBjuFGN4/copy If you append copy to the sheet URL, it’ll copy the spreadsheet with content and the form. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Lrq5sbr-Q_8TFky81OSMFgTO1OnQ8bbN1G05m0q3dVQ/copy
creative commons licensed ( BY-SA ) flickr photo shared by nojhan Alice Campbell in the VCU library hosted a Wikipedia edit-a-thon today. It was interesting and we had a variety of faculty and even some students show up. Gardner joked at one point whether we had a leader board for edits. It got me thinking. I remembered that Wikipedia keeps track of the edits of logged in users and I figured I’d take a shot at scraping some of that data so we’d have a rough idea of how many edits were made by our group. I started off by looking at the contributions page. This URL will get you the page for my user name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Woodwardtw I used the IMPORTHTML formula in Google Spreadsheets.Something I’ve used a few times before. It was easy because this was the first list on the page. You can see in the image above that you have the choice between trying to grab a list or a table. The other variable is what number that element is from the top of the page. You can see the working document embedded below. I considered parsing outI’d have used some regex. Alan would have been proud. the ..(+30)..Characters I think. The tooltip on hover is in bytes. but after talking to Alice that wasn’t the kind […]
These last few posts are an attempt to document both how things I post on this blog come back up and help me do new things and an attempt to document how I come to solutions for things that I don’t understand how to do. Then there’s an attempt to explain what I did in case anyone else wants to do the same. I hope that it’s a narrative on my learning process as much as it is a tutorial on the particular topic. The Past So I’m fairly focused on making things easier for myself for the simple fact that if they don’t make sense/work with my current life then I tend not to keep them up. A good examples is that way back in 2011Nothing wrong with letting an idea ripen. I modified the WordPress “Press This” bookmarklet in combination with the WordPress Snap plugin to allow me to auto generate screenshots of pages. I used it a few times after that but it didn’t fit my workflow. It solved one problem- I wanted visuals of these websites to make the posts more engaging but I didn’t want to take screenshots, upload them etc.I’m lazy I guess. So one problem solved but the fact remained that I didn’t use “Press This” to bookmark pages. I used Diigo for […]
