How to make your own Fotolog.

From Genbeta I discover a special they prepared to learn how to make a Fotolog on our ownAnd many of you will ask yourselves, what is a fotolog, let's go by parts. A fotolog, as its word indicates, is a blog in which we post photos of our events or of a specific theme, if you want more information you can go to the Wikipedia which is very well explained.

To begin with, we must know that we have several ways to make a photolog, mainly we will rely on CMS such as Wordpress (for those who do not know, is a program to make a blog, is the one I use). But even more logical would be to use a CMS that is designed solely and exclusively for making photologs, such as PixelpostIt is a very simple system to use but with the only drawback of having to use our own domain and hosting.

One of the most outstanding virtues of Pixelpost is the great amount of different themes that we can find, increasing exponentially the personalisation of the photolog and avoiding similar photologs around the net.

Another option we can look at is to use Wordpress with a theme made for photologs, in this case it could be more complex but the result could be the same or better, because Wordpress has a large number of followers so we will have more support throughout the web to solve any incident that happens to us.

The last option exposed by the Genbeta team was to use the images from Flickr together with TumblrThe great advantage of this option with respect to the previous ones is that it has a great capacity for automation, eliminating the need for many image uploads and cumbersome waiting times.

If you know more ways to make your own photologs, just let us know and we can discuss their use and complexity. For my point of view the one I like the most is Pixelpost, for its ease of use and customisation.

How to download from Megaupload and Rapidshare.

Since ever the human being on the Internet has been trying to download as many things as possible and if you felt you were saving money, so much the better.

Normally downloaded from P2P networkssuch as those used by eMule or Aresbut they have been losing followers because of the time it took to connect to a download. Then P2M networks such as Pando or Durie have emerged.But they have also failed to take off due to the awkwardness of such platforms. And as many of you will have heard, they are nowadays very direct downloads, such as Rapidshare or Megaupload, are in vogue. that although it is very uncomfortable, because of waiting for the next download and so on, the speed at which we can get the files we are looking for is very good. And to make it even better, we have this curious programme that will avoids having to fill in the hateful captcha fields and waiting to put the next file, as it lets you queue and automatically fills in those fields.

How to watch HD videos on YouTube

As most of us know by now, YouTube is starting to implement the "High Definition" in their videosor at least those recorded in high definition. The only drawback is that for the moment they have it hidden, usable but hidden.

With a simple trick you can display these in high definition.and that is by adding a simple attribute at the end of a YouTube video link, what you need to add is &fmt=18I will give you an example.

This would be the URL you would see when searching for a video on YouTube:

http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=AxcE9wDMTCQ

No high definition

And this would be the URL of the video in question in high definition:

http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=AxcE9wDMTCQ&fmt=18

With high definition

As you can see, all the attribute does is to add a function in the bottom right-hand corner to switch between HD and normal, I hope it will be useful, until YouTube decides to unhide this function.
