Google Rebrands Android Market, Becomes Google Play

Google Rebrands Android Market, Becomes Google Play

Android Market was the place that the majority of Android phone owners went to for downloading and installing new apps and games on their phone. The market offered free and commercial offerings side-by-side, but no music or ebook offerings whatsoever.Google itself had two issues with that Android Market concept. First that the company’s book and music services where not integrated into the market. Apple’s iTunes for instance is a one stop destination for all iOS users to get...

Youtube Ups Video Limit to 15 Minutes, So What?

Youtube Ups Video Limit to 15 Minutes, So What?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The news was just posted over at the official Youtube blog that the video length limitation on Youtube has been increased for “normal” Youtube users. The limit has been raised from 10 to 15 minutes. We want YouTube to be the best place to upload video. Without question, the number one requested feature by our creators is to upload videos longer than 10 minutes. We’ve heard you, and today we’re pleased...

Youtube Adds HTML5 Embedding To Videos

Youtube Adds HTML5 Embedding To Videos

The popular video hosting site Youtube has been offering limited beta HTML5 viewing capabilities for some time now on their website. HTML5 video playback was limited to Google Chrome and Safari, and only directly available on Youtube after joining the beta channel. Webmasters and Internet users who wanted to embed videos on third party websites had no choice but to embed the Flash player, as there was no option to change the embed code to HTML5 video. Toliver Jue, a Youtube Software Engineer,...

4K Videos Coming To Youtube

4K Videos Coming To Youtube

Youtube is raising the bar once again with the announcement that the video hosting site will support 4K videos in the near future. Less than a year ago Youtube enabled full HD, 1080p, video resolutions on Youtube and most people thought that 1080p was going to be the top resolution on Youtube for a long time to come. 4K videos raise the bar by running in a resolution of 4096 x 3072, that’s almost four times the size of the full HD resolution. But 4K videos raise the bar not only...

How To Play Webm Videos

How To Play Webm Videos

We have just reviewed one of the first video converters that is supporting the new webm format. The conversion creates videos with the extension .webm and it is only natural to try and play it on the installed video player. Chance is the video player does not support webm out of the box, at least not in its current installation. There are actually only a handful of solutions currently available to play webm videos on the local computer system. We would like to review two different options...

Download music from Amazon with clamz

Download music from Amazon with clamz

Lately I have been going on and on about the Ubuntu Music Store. So much so, it would seem I have forgotten the other music store that is friends to Linux. Not so. I am still a fan of the Amazon MP3 store and last night I took the opportunity to purchase something. I was looking for the soundtrack to my favorite TV show (Fringe) on the Ubuntu Music Store when I quickly realized they didn’t have it. So I opted to check out the next best thing – Amazon.com. Well they had it…BUT…the...

Add some cool extensions to Banshee

Add some cool extensions to Banshee

I had recently been on a roll with the Ubuntu One Music Store. In that series I spoke a lot of Rhythbox, because that was the “default” player supporting Ubuntu One Music Store. But Rhythmbox isn’t the only player in town. Oh no. In fact, another outstanding player gets plenty o’ lovin’ from the Ubuntu community. That player? Banshee. Along with Rhythmbox, Banshee plays along well with the GNOME desktop. And, like Rhythbox, Banshee has some really cool extensions...

Ubuntu One Music Store has arrived

Ubuntu One Music Store has arrived

This morning I woke up to write an article for Ghacks. I was searching around for inspiration while I was updating my Ubuntu 10.4 beta install. Near the end of the update I thought “Let’s just check to see the status of the Ubuntu One Music Store”. So I fired up Rhythmbox and, to my surprise, there it was…all ready for me to start shopping! So…with that said, in this article I am going to introduce you to the Ubuntu One Music Store and how it works. It’s...

Get your beat on with the Hydrogen drum machine

Get your beat on with the Hydrogen drum machine

All too often the musically inclined seem to feel a bit left out of the Linux, open source community. At least that was the way for a long time. And then came along a few new tools and a few recording-specific distributions (such as 64 Studio and Linux Multimedia Studio) and the open source music world was turned on its head. Now you see tools for recording, editing, sampling, and more. With Linux (and open source) you can create an entire symphony of music, without ever touching a real...

Youtube And Vevo: What’s The Deal?

Youtube And Vevo: What’s The Deal?

Youtube has been one of the prime locations for music buffs around the world to view music videos and listen to music. Many record companies and individual artists use Youtube to promote their products. Users who have been searching for music that is distributed by the major record labels Universal Music Group, Sony Music and EMI might have already noticed that something has changed today. Songs by popular artists like Lady Gaga, the Beastie Boys or Michael Jackson show now up with a Vevo...

Acetone: Mount and manage your CD/DVD ISOs

Acetone: Mount and manage your CD/DVD ISOs

I have been working with the Acetone ISO manager and have been in awe at how much this tool can do. The creators of Acetone call it a CD/DVD image manager, but from my perspective it is much more than that. Acetone is more like an emulator for different types of ISOs that can allow the user to do many things with ISO images: Mount, split, convert, compress, encrypt, and more. Acetone even allows the user to download videos from Youtube and burn them to CD/DVD. But don’t expect such...

Simple Linux disk burning with Brasero

Simple Linux disk burning with Brasero

Q: What is a “brasero”? A: A Spanish oven that is placed under a table in order to heat those sitting at the table. Correct, but not in terms of Linux. A 2.0: A GTK+ front end for cdrtools, growisofs, and (optionally) libburn. Correct! If you have used a modern Linux system then you know how easy the task of burning CDs has become. I have covered the K3B tool as well as burning CDs from the command line. And although both methods have their merits, neither are as simple...

Youtube To Add 1080p HD Videos

Youtube To Add 1080p HD Videos

Youtube and other video portals on the Internet have come a long way since the beginning of the online video boom. What started with low resolutions has now grown over the year to keep pace with the high definition development in the TV, digital camcorder and media market. Youtube announced yesterday in the official Youtube blog that they would start serving 1080p HD videos from the coming week on at their popular video portal. The current maximum resolution for Youtube videos is 720p...

Hulu desktop for Linux

Hulu desktop for Linux

I’m sure by now everyone here knows about Hulu. If not, Hulu is a rather huge collection of television programs that can be viewed on line, for free, with few commercial interruptions. It’s brilliant. You can watch old reruns of What’s Happenin? or Mork and Mindy or Alf! Yes, Alf! But many of you may not know that there is a Hulu client available. This client makes the viewing experience very simple, and much more convenient than the standard browser viewing because,...

ScreenTunes Finds Movie and TV Show Music

ScreenTunes Finds Movie and TV Show Music

What is the name of the song they are playing now in this movie? I guess everyone has asked that question at some point in time only to find out that it was very difficulty to get an answer unless a movie soundtrack was released with the song in question being on the record. Most of the time however it is no that easy which means it can lead to strenuous research on the Internet to discover the song title. ScreenTunes is a new music search engine that tries to help the user who is looking...
