OK. Let's get a little more professional about this. I turned Duncan's, Martijn's, and my comments into subtitle files (attached to this post). Here's how to play them in VLC:
Edit - or see Jesse's post in Windows or Nev's post for another simple option.
1. File --> "Open File"
2. Browse for the diabolo.ca collaboration video
3. Check the "Load subtitles file" box.

4. Click on "Settings"
5. Browse for the .srt file you want to play

6. Hit OK a couple times and enjoy!

Voila, now you can watch the video with whoever's comments you'd like:




Anyone else want to add their commentary? ;) Just fill out the text file I attached (dcacollab08_commentary.txt), send it to me, and I'll convert it.

If anyone's interested in the Perl script I wrote to turn the above comments into .srt files, let me know. It's not hard.

Sean that's fantastic!

But there's actually an easier way to play the .srt files. VLC allows you to simply drag them on the screen.

Well, that certainly sounds simple; however, it doesn't seem to do anything in OS X. Maybe that's only on the Windows VLC?

Come on. More subtitles. :)

Dunno. I'm using Windows VLC, so that could be true.

Loving those subtitles.

Windows VLC will auto-detect the subtitles - just put them in the same folder as the video and let VLC so the rest. - just play the vid & select "subtitles track" from the video menu - (disable, track 1, track 2, track 3 etc) - lets you switch between titles during playback.

2:33 – 2:45 – What IS that thing you're standing in front of?!
2:33 – 2:45 – Jordan - I've had lots of comments about the structure in the background.

Ha ha, that was really my intention to get you wondering in front of what I was standing. I'm glad it worked.

And the answer is :

Quote from: Matrijn
2:33 – 2:45 – That obviously is a well received piece of contemporary Italian art. Or a climbing apparatus for the local kids.

Martijn is right, it's a piece of art, but in the same moment it has also a functional use (for example there are also some park bench).


@busk: I'm from Italy, like you, and live in Bolzano. Some people has met me before, but especially German people, because my first language is German (second is Italian). For Example I was at the EJC, maybe you have seen me there, even if you don't remember ;). But I don't juggle that long and haven't been on many big festivals (actually EJC was my first), therefore maybe we meet some day.

And about my clothes, I like unicolourd clothes and be sure, you are not the first one to call me smurf  :-D.
