I'm still trying to use the youtube software!
Why after all these years can't I play it backwards? Or at least, is
there a good way to go back 30 seconds and replay something? When I
press pause, it always has a hard time restarting
And this time I started to watch the animated version mentioned during
Engineer Guy's good version. I got bored and wanted to go to one of the
other many selections, but how to do I make the one I'm watching finish
It's driven by the html code in the youtube webpage.
Have you actually tried that?. It works very badly when it works at
It usually doen't work.
Moving the dot to the end has worked for me once, but it didn't work
this time. Instead the video would not go forward any farther.
Are you claiming this stuff works for you, or only that you've never
wanted to do these things,
What browser do you use? What OS?

The html contains the name of the video file.
The verb "driven" is not correct.
Yes, I tried it.
It's far from exact and worse the longer the video is.
But it's all most browser/video players provide.
To get more control, you'd need to download the video and use
a different player. Youtube doesn't want you to download the videos
but if you are persistent, you might find a way.
Can't remark on your experience, just my own.
Works every time for me.
Be aware that any click on the video is usually a pause.
Also there may be some keyboard keys that affect playing.
It would be nice if the cursor keys worked, but they didn't

Youtube video progress bar:
If you click ahead of the progress bar into the black portion you need
to wait for the buffering (grey portion) to catch up. The red portion
is what has played. The grey bar in front of the red shows how much of
the video has been downloaded and buffered to your computer's memory.
I am on DSL which isn't as fast as cable so see this all the time with
youtube videos. Sometimes if I click ahead of the grey progress bar into
the black portion the video won't play and looses its connection so the
page needs manually reloaded. This is generally accompanied by an error
Those on cable may never or only briefly view the grey portion of the
progress bar actually advancing and not notice the black unbuffered portion.
As far as running it backwards, as far as I know it won't do that, but
you can click on the red portion that has already played to replay all
or a portion of what has been viewed.
If you want to pause the video you are watching and watch something else
you will need to watch the second video in a new tab or new window. Just
clicking on it in the current window resets the connection of the
At least thats how it works in Firefox running on XP here.
not sure I understand the question. However, I always thought the subtle
difference between soda and beer can shape was to enable highway patrolman
an easy visual differentiation at a distance between drinking while
driving and having a soda.

Seems to me typical soda and beer can shapes are and look very much

As to the video, it's a interesting one, but it would be better called how
beverage cans are made. The beginning is pretty lame, implying that
the sole driving factor was fitting them into the smallest space
possible. Spheres? Cubes? Good grief. Clearly one of the biggest
drivers was a shape you could hold and drink from. And we already had
the water glass. I would think the choice of a cylinder was fairly

Maybe just me, but 12 oz beer cans look TOTALLY different than 12 oz soda
cans. Haven't bought any in loooonnnnng time, so maybe the two are now the
I buy Beck's non-alcoholic brew out of Bremen - comes in bottles. Get all
the vitamins and stomach settling 'goodness', but none of the
titillation(sp?) and resulting loss of brain cells. Plus, one of the few
brews that actually is ok with fish and stands up to ice in the glass
without seeming all watery.
I once had a highway patrolman tell me that consuming non-alcoholic brew
while driving is not a 'chargeable' offense. And he could actually tell
from a goodly distance whether a driver was consuming non-alcholic brew by
viewing the container so would not stop him. Now THAT's pattern
Totally off topic, but I was stopped by a cop once on a small road from
the Rockville Pike to I-70 west of DC and Balt.
He talked to me for a while and asked me if I had been drinking. I
hadn't, and after a little while he went back to his car and I left.
It was only 5 seconds after I started driving again that I realized why
he stopped me. I had been eating from a bag of M&M's and I had to
wiggle the wheel to get an M out of the bag. So I was wiggling and
wiggling the steering wheel and he thought I was drunk.
Had I figured this out when he was there, and had I told him, would that
have been good or bad for me? Would he call that reckless driving to
eat M&M's while driving?
Similar situation about 1:30 AM when the drunks are leaving the bars. I
was trying to get a CD from the case and into the radio. I did a couple
of wiggles. I was back on my way in less than a minute.
No complaints from me though. He was trying to keep the drunks from
injuring the rest of ut.
