When http::// doesn’t start with any more: start it through (via: @feedly your news. delivered.)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/03/16

Recently when starting Feedly through, I got this message in Chrome on my Retina MacBook Pro:

Is feedly blocked?

Feedly is not able to load. It is probably because one of your extensions is blocking it. If you run Adblock, HTTPSEverywhere, Awesome screenshot etc.. please make sure that is white listed.

Ask a question

I paused AdBlock: same thing. I don’t use HTTPSEverywhere or the other tools mentioned.

Solution: start using Since I prefer https anyway, I can live with that (: Read the rest of this entry »

Speedup Youtube Playback: Watch Lectures In Half The Time with YouTube’s HTML5 Player

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2013/09/13

I wish I had kept an eye on it after it was announced (which was 3.5 years ago, but not very stable): The Youtube HTML5 viewer trial.

It has come a long way since thenFull screen it is still not as good as the official one, but the main attraction introduced since is: configurable playback speed!

Yes, you can choose playback at 25%, 50%, 100%, 150% or 200% of the original speed. Ideal for lectures or watching replays of conference sessions.

▶ How to pair a desktop or laptop to (via: YouTube; uses Opera Mobile Emulator)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2013/08/04

Trick via: ▶ How to pair a desktop or laptop to – YouTube.

This trick uses the Opera Mobile Emulator.

Note that not all settings work. The Asus Nexus 7 emulator worked, but custom didn’t always work (that would open as hence switching off the mobile client).

When following the steps at Pair your mobile device to your TV – YouTube Help, you are directed to to select your TV and enter a pairing code.

Usually you need to retry playing a video a few times: my Philips 42PFI7676H-12 didn’t always work at first (maybe playing back streamed video inside the emulator is not supported, but telling Youtube to pass the play request to your TV is), whereas with my Google Nexus 4 it always works.

You can even pair one computer to another: on the computer that emulates the TV, browse to

30 april 1993: the free and open WWW started…

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2013/05/03

This year, the Dutch Queens day this year had a special nature. On the nation level: the abdication by former Queen, now Princess Beatrix, and the succession and inauguration of King Willem-Alexander.

On the personal level, my best friend visiting The Netherlands for just a few days, so finally a chance to catch up in person.

So I totally missed another important historic event: the 20th birthday of the releasing the WWW source code in the public domain.
