DVP's New Master Video/Audio Index

50 posts in this topic

FYI....

Here's a new Master Index listing/catalog of all the programs in my video/audio collection, which is an extensive resource that might prove useful to some people out there. This catalog includes more than 2,500 video files in total (JFK-related and otherwise), all available for streaming, downloading, and embedding through the handy Google Drive file hosting service.

If anybody finds a broken link or a misspelled word (or some other mistake), please let me know.

Thanks.

Thanks, DVP.

I've watched dozens of hours of material that you have collected. Always appreciated.

That's what I was thinking when I started to put that catalog of links together. I wanted something comprehensive, fast-loading, and text searchable. And the new index meets all of those criteria. It took me ten days to create just that one page (working on it 13-15 hours a day). :hotorwot  And I've added about 50 more links since I first posted this thread on December 5th, and I shall be adding to the index many more times in the future, I am sure.

In addition to JFK stuff, the index also includes my collected material on the RFK and MLK assassinations, the O.J. Simpson case, the 9/11 attacks, Apollo 11 coverage, entertainment links from radio and TV, hundreds of baseball games (including various no-hitters as well as the Cubs amazing win in the 2016 World Series), and many other topics that are of interest to this writer.

Thank you, Hugo and Chris, for your comments (and your interest).

Here's another custom logo for the Index (I like to create logos too)....

This is a really nice collection, David.  The CC button shows up but when I click on it, the subtitles (auto mode) don't come on.  Is it possible for you to go into it and turn it on?  It wouldn't just be for me as you can imagine how older folks actually do use captions.

I have no control over that Captions button, Michael. There is no way for me to turn it "on" or "off". But that CC/Subtitles button shouldn't be there at all. No captions have ever been available for Google Drive videos. That option, in fact, was just added to the function controls on the Drive video players within the last few weeks. Prior to that, no Captions button was there at all.

What I think has happened is that the Google Drive players have now totally mimicked the players used at YouTube. (They're both "Google" entities, of course.) They are identical in design, and they've now decided to transfer the "Captions/Subtitles" button over to the Drive players too, even though the captions are not available at Drive.

Now, it's quite possible, Michael, that captions will be available for those Drive videos at some point in the future. Perhaps the recent addition of the Caption button means that they plan to make such an option available there soon. I really don't know.

Of course, as you no doubt know, those "Auto Captions" that are used at YouTube are almost useless. They only represent a loose approximation of the actual quotes from the video, and most of the time the results are hilarious. But on some occasions, a few of the words being spoken are actually represented correctly in the captions. But more often than not, they are mangled badly.

I occasionally click on the Caption button on my Drive videos just to see if that option will start working some day. But so far, no dice.

What you say makes sense, David.  For what it's worth, the auto function is getting much better.  I read a while back that Google bought out this small start-up that has come up with a better speech to text translator.  After I read that over the ensuing months, I've noticed a big improvement on auto captions. For example I was watching the 11/22 Cronkite bulletin elsewhere on YT and was amazed at how much better it was.

You can always tell when it's auto vs inserted text when the captions roll up one line at a time.

That's good news. I hope Google Drive will add the Captions to their videos in the future. It would be quite useful to many people, as you suggested.

Much obliged, Vince.

Finding a rare video (or audio) gem to add to my archive is always a treat. Such as this 1961 interview with President Kennedy, which was done live from the President's box in the stands at Griffith Stadium in Washington prior to the opening baseball game of the '61 season. It is the only time (to date) that a POTUS has been interviewed from the stands at a baseball game. This clip is especially satisfying for me, because it combines two of my favorites subjects for video archival purposes---JFK and baseball. ....

It's nice to see you have 70's Reds games on your channel.  I grew up cheering for Rose, Bench, Morgan and the others.  I remember when I was 7 years old, we walked over from Newport to the newly opened Riverfront.  We had good blue seats and before the game, Bench was down by the rail signing autographs.  I went down late and tried to reach my hand through the others to see if he'd take it. He actually pushed hands away to make a "parting of the seas" and reached up and grabbed mine to sign. A great moment for me as he was one of my favorites along with Rose.

Hey, David, since you know so much about the early film footage, I thought I'd ask you a question. I was looking through Douglas Brinkley's book on Walter Cronkite the other day. In the book, Brinkley quotes a CBS newsman named Lew Wood, who claims he smuggled a Carcano onto the sixth floor of the depository and re-enacted the shooting for a camera, but that CBS refused to air the footage. (The implication is that this was done on the weekend of the shooting, if not the day of the shooting, but the precise day is not named.) Just as bad, Wood claims they got footage of a blood-soaked Trauma Room One, just after the President's body had been removed, but that CBS refused to air that as well.

I suspect this guy is full of beans, but thought I'd run this by you to see if you can remember any such footage--if only a snippet--making it onto the air.
