I've got the snow falling running in another tab now. Thank you so, so much for this.

Fizz, you have such a terrific knack of posting the most wonderful things at just the right time -- thank you for these today! Shared with some non-Mefites, too. Wishing peace to everyone's hearts.

There have been entire days where I've looped the 4k jellyfish aquarium, just having it on in the background on the television. It's the right kind of calm we all need in our lives.

I'm finding snow falling pairs really well with this recording from Tom Kenyon, who is a fascinating person that I don't know enough about to make a FPP. I realize that might seem at odds with the purpose of the 4k videos, but it's working for my frayed nerves.

this will finally give me something else to watch besides my favorite show, the AppleTV screensavers

Ooh, this is wonderful! I love the "rushing mountain river" one, it's very calming.

But Fizz makes video game posts, so I assume this is a new genre of video game... We've progressed from walking simulators to looking out the window simulators.

I love these also (the Icebreaker is a favorite of mine, for the white noise) but I'm skeptical about the durations. I think often it's (for example) just an hour, looped nine times. Scan through that Autumnal River, see how the light never changes? Especially obvious in the Tropical Waterfall... that's no ten hours -- the sun doesn't move.

Oh, that's for sure, most of these are loops. It is difficult to find the ones that are actual recordings. You may have to really dig and play around with your search results on YouTube. But, for the most part, it still provides a nice pleasant background.

If you have Amazon prime search for "window channel" and there are some delightful videos like this including city life if that's more your jam.

It's almost like someone should release Warhol's Empire for online viewing. It might actually be watched repeatedly.

Sleep is online, however.

Counterprogramming: You might be missing the crowds.

Also, hugs.

"Slow TV" as a search on YouTube will bring up more like this. They are really nice if you're lucky enough to have a two-monitor setup.

I have a fondness for long videos taken from a train conductors point of view, especially when they travel through beautiful countryside. This is Norway during the spring, and this is Norway in the winter. For those who want more, check out /r/traindriversview on that other site. Lots of amazing locales
