This is infinity times better if you click the "PARTY" button in the lower lefthand corner. I'm just sayin'.

Actually, this thing is great. It seems like all house parties these days end up with at least a couple of hours of a free-for-all youtube DJing, and previously that's involved a little bit of nifty window swapping in order to "mix" from one tune to another.

You can pull up the same video twice - say, the badger one - and play them offset a little and get a nice, seizure-inducing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" kind of thing going.

what?

I don't say this often, but I have to say it now: Whoever created this has too much time on their hands.

This needs a pair of turntables, as well. I guess you could play with the seekbars, but it can't scratch, and where's the human touch there?

Does anyone else find it a little ironic that Where It's At has embedding disallowed and won't work with the site?
posted by Rhomboid at 12:53 PM on November 10, 2009


I have a machine at my house that does this. Sometimes, I take my machine somewhere, hook it up to a couple other machines and make people watch.

However, I don't have a PARTY button. Where can I get one? My life will not be complete unless I can push a button that spontaneously causes small woodland creatures to joyously boogie all around me with wild and reckless abandon while I mix, crossfade, and noodle about. I mean, there is a goddamn breakdancing hedgehog. CHAINLESS.

Man I gotta say Beck's starting to look like Gary Oldman.
posted by boo_radley at 12:58 PM on November 10, 2009


It doesn't do what it says on the tin. I thought it was going to visually layer the two videos and allow crossfading between them, not just the audio tracks. Meh!

I do not understand why they stopped at two videos and one crossfader, aside from the n^2 problem.

What would one call an n-way crossfader?

I'd always wanted a cross-fader for youtube doubler... plus a record feature? Awesome.

Will HTML5's VIDEO element allow for something more interesting than an audiotrack fader?
posted by unmake at 4:05 PM on November 10, 2009


That is fun shit.
Some of you are mixing some weird shit too. Earbucket, that works really well. Gotta say.

But it lead me to the creator, Ha 'greetings trainspotters', jake elliott's site.


That was even more interesting.

A hella post, I may add. Cheers.

Couldn't sleep. I don't know enough about music to know whether some of these actually work or not, but, well, they were fun to find.

C# maj + Bb min
D maj + B min <>Eb maj + C min
E maj + C# min
F maj + D min (includes nifty animation of Bach Toccata and Fugue)
F# maj + Eb min
G maj + E min Disturbing/Hilarious
Ab maj + F min
A maj + F# min (rock out)
Bb maj + G min
B maj + Ab min

Well, somehow I messed that up. The D maj + B min is based on Pachabel's canon, which is perfectly suited for this tomfoolery.

DecemberBoy: "57"Under Mi Sleng Teng" vs. some girl playing "Build Me Up Buttercup" on ukulele: http://bit.ly/1BYm06"

Yes. But: "some girl"!?

That, it turns out, is Julia Nunes, who also does Accidentally In Love, Survivor and Mr. Brightside on ukulele (and the occasional overrated song as well), and is thus clearly awesome.
