Roger Federer, the legend of tennis, is not only good at tennis, but also good at 'shooting bottle':)
Believe or not, he twice shot a metal bottle off a guy's head with a powerful serve during filming for a Gillette ad. Just as shown in the below YouTube video. (You can use Leawo Free YouTube Downloader to download it to your computer)
The above video by now has been hit 3,056,874 times on YouTube, therefore is becoming a YouTube sensation.
The tennis genius has not confirmed whether it's real. He told the Associated Press that "Yeah. Well, there's a lot of debate at the moment, you know," Federer said after his opening match at the Cincinnati Masters on Wednesday. "You know how it is with magicians. They don't tell how their tricks work, you know."
What do you think? Is it Real or just the result of advanced Computer-generated imagery (CGI)?

Yesterday, we learned that some iPhone and iPod users can not sign in their YouTube Application. A "YouTube not available" error message popped up once clicked the "sign in" button. Just as shown in the below picture:
Soon afterwards in the Apple forums, users posted at least one thread in discussion of this problem. The user writes:
"When I try to log in to the YouTube app on my iPad I get a message telling me the YouTube app is unavailable and then logs back out. I have the correct user and pass so I’m not sure why it's doing it. All other apps are ok and I am connected to the Internet."
Anyone else having the same problem?

Windows Phone 7 does not support online video, because it doesn't support Flash or HTML5 video, but now it seems that you can view YouTube video with some sort of YouTube application.
Earlier this week, a former Microsoft programmer posted a tweet with a picture shown as collage of "Windows Phone 7 Marketplace testing applications icons and names." The photo reveals that the upcoming Microsoft Phone 7 will offer different game and productivity applications, and one of these applications is labeled 'YouTube', one is labeled 'Yelp'. Just as the below picture shown:
However, the 'YouTube' labeled application is also labeled 'Music Hub Add-On', which may mean that it's not an independent application, but rather an addon of the Windows Phone 7 Music hub, so you can add YouTube content to the existing Music hub.
Other testing applications in the collage photo include a few games, weather tool, RSS reader, stock tool, shopping list, etc.

We all want to make our PowerPoint slideshow attracive. A good way to do that is to add video to the PPT slideshow, so the slideshow becomes much more lively and interesting.
It’s rather easy to add video like AVI, WMV or SWF to PowerPoint. But for YouTube video, you cannot directly add them to PowerPoint, because PowerPoint doesn’t recognizes FLV (Flash video).
The tutorial below will show you how to embed YouTube video to PowerPoint slideshow, so that you can play YouTube video on PPT without Internet connection. This tutorial will be very straightforward. Before start, you will need to download and install two tools on your computer, one is Leawo Free YouTube Downloader, and the other one is Leawo Free FLV Converter. The former one is a good YouTube downloader, while the latter one can convert FLV to other video formats.
Step 1. Download video from YouTube to your computer and Convert the downloaded YouTube video to AVI
Launch Leawo Free YouTube Downloader. Before starting to download YouTube videos, there is something needed to be configued: click settings icon, choose "Show hover window on program startup" in "General" tab from the pop-up window.

YouTube users may often embed YouTube videos on their blogs or websites. And the embed code they use offered by YouTube is just for Adobe Flash Technology. Just as the code shown below:
<object width="480" height="295"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/whu-7wVg4W8&hl=en_US&fs=1"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param ame="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/whu-7wVg4W8&hl=en_US&fs=1" width="480" height="295" allowscriptaccess="never" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed></object>
Things are changed when we are using a mobile phone. The browsers in our mobile phone do not know Flash video and Flash technology. Besides, Flash technology is being replaced by HTML5. Furthermore, more and more new mobile phones begin to support HTML5, not Flash.
Under this situation, YouTube brings out iframe for video embedding, which means that we can now use iframe code to embed HTML5 video to our blogs or websites. So that we can view YouTube videos in both computer and mobile web browsers. The below code is examples using iframe code for YouTube video embedding, which supports both Adobe Flash technology and HTML5:Example 1:
<iframe class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="640" height="385" src=http://www.youtube.com/embed/YVKCjM4TF6c frameborder="0"></iframe>
<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID" width="329" height="190"></iframe>
<iframe type="text/html" width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID" frameborder="0">Note:
1. These iframe code can automatically analyze what browser you’re using, and display Flash video or HTML5 video to you. For example, if you are using the brower that supports Flash technology, the code will display Flash; if not, the code will display HTML5 video.
2. Currently on YouTube, the new iframe embed code is during testing phase, so it needs to be written by you manually.
3. All the above iframe code work. You can feel free to choose one of them to embed YouTube videos to web page.
In the near future the iframe embed code will be the default code for video embedding for YouTube. By then we shall be able to conveniently view videos on iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices.
