Community & Events / Bungay Balls Up 2012 [UK]
« on: October 11, 2011, 02:19:12 PM »
The world's longest juggling convention just got longer! Thanks to various bank holiday shenanigans, in 2012 there will be 11 days of staring at buttercups to be done, occasionally interrupted by a silly game or two, or if you're really unlucky, some juggling.

Be there or be active and enthusiastic elsewhere!

General / JTV goes HD!
« on: September 10, 2010, 06:25:18 PM »
Dear DCA dudes,

We have made a few changes to , which we hope you'll like.

Firstly off, we now have a new, larger video player which is HD to the max. From now on, new videos which are HD will be available to watch in choice of standard or high definition. If the HD option is available you will see an HD button on the player: click for bigness. We will also roll this feature out to HD videos already in the archive over the next few months. Of course all our videos are still available for download in their original format or our handy ipod versions.

In response to JTV going HD we have increased our maximum upload size to 400mb per video (no weekly limits - if it's juggling we will take it). As part of our endeavors to provide a quality service to jugglers we are beta testing html5 video playback. You will see the button to check this out on each video page.

We are really pleased to announce French and Danish are now added to the list of JTV languages, courtesy of Aymeric. Finnish is on the way. If you'd like to translate JTV into your language (especialmente el espaƱol), we'd be happy to hear from you at

For the socially active amongst you, you can now find us on Twitter, as well as Facebook.
Use the hash tag #jugglingtv for posts about JTV videos, or even just about JTV!

We have made a load of other mods behind the scenes to ensure smooth delivery of juggling action. One that you may notice is our new neat video urls, that now come in this form: (all old links and embeds will still work)

We also hope to bring you some guest bloggers in the near future.

Thanks to Oddballs for supporting JTV's progress.

As always, your ratings/comments/uploads/downloads/views are welcome!

General / JTV 2 is alive
« on: May 27, 2009, 06:58:49 PM »
Two years on from our initial launch, we're pleased to annouce Version Two... [ aka jtV2 ]

We've listened to the things you've said, fixed stuff that was broken, and added many cool new features that we hope you'll enjoy. As a big thank you to all our users so far, we give you....

    * A brand new video player, with improved video quality and superior fullscreen mode. Plus we have re-encoded ALL the existing videos to the better quality h.264 codec. (You will need Flash version 10 installed to view the videos)
    * We now have widescreen support. Aspect ratios will be maintained at all times.
    * A choice of video downloads. As well as offering the original files for download, we have created a re-encoded version, at a sensible file & frame size, especially made to be iPod friendly.
    * Rounded Corners. We have smoothed lots of the rough edges of old design, we hope things will be easier to find and easier on the eye. Plus we decided that we had reached the end of our brown phase.
    * iPhone browsing...  Yes, you can now watch JTV videos on the move on your iPhone!
    * Member Following... Follow your favorite Jugglers! You will receive an email from JTV whenever they upload a new video.
    * Not sure if you can be bothered to watch a video? Hover your mouse over the thumbnail to get an instant preview of 16 stills from throughout the video.
    * Thumbnail generation: choose the image to represent your uploaded videos, with our all-new random thumbnail generator.
    * Slomo! Does Reuben move his hands too fast for you to see? Would you like to see Langerz do his tricks at normal-human speed? Feel the need to check how perfect an isolation was? Now you can watch it all at half speed!
    * File size limit has been increased from 200 to 300MB, for all you HD-addicts out there.
    * New Prop Channels, to make it even easier for you to find the videos you want to watch. ( If you have videos on JTV, it would be appreciated if you checked out which new channels suit your videos. )
    * Multi-language support. in theory... The new site has been created to support this but... translators, JTV needs you!
    * Existing embedded videos on other sites will still work, but can be updated to use our new player by switching to the newly supplied embed code.

We have double checked every feature and double checked again, but don't for one moment think version two is bug free yet (especially if you are foolish enough to use internet explorer). So please be understanding if things don't work quite right and most importantly let us know so we can fix it. (You can contact the Quality Controller via qc @ juggling . tv )

We hope you appreciate all the new features & fixes, fingers crossed there are not too many fluffs & flaws. Please continue to support us with your videos, comments and ratings, your input is the soul of JTV...

For those of you who already have videos hosted with us please take the time to login and add your video to the appropriate new channels and checkout the new thumbnail generator.

enjoy jtV2 _ much Love :

Community & Events / Bristol 9 dayer, 2009 confirmed: Pre-reg!
« on: March 23, 2009, 01:29:43 PM »
Hello all,

I've been asked to pass on the message that this year's 9 day Bristol convention is confirmed, and has a website up and running. Hurrah.

You will need to pre register this year as the convention is not open to the public for licencing reasons.

Volunteers wanted!

General / [UK] Female diabolo performer wanted
« on: January 29, 2009, 01:58:25 PM »
Details here:
I suspect the important word in that lot is performer, but it might be an opportunity to start doing that for the first time.

Cirque Normandy site.

I'm just cross posting it. I don't know anything about it other than what's written there, so don't ask any questions here, 'cos you won't get any answers.

Oh, and if you do contact them, you might politely point out the correct spelling of 'diabolo' to them ;-)

Wondering how long before the first question is asked...

Performances / Saucepans and vases
« on: January 21, 2009, 11:14:25 PM »
I've been digging. I once said "I'm sure I remember seeing an old video of a happy singing old Chinese guy doing diabolo tricks with a saucepan lid."

Well.... it was a vase:
Singing Diabolist - Wong Mow Ting - juggling videos hosted @

Donald said "Somewhere I've got some cool old VHS of a chinese girl doing suacepan lid...."

His memory was fine:
Snowflake diabolo girls - juggling videos hosted @

80s Vertax for your grainy b&w delight.

Hello. The top of the page shows the time, eg
December 05, 2008, 05:15:41 PM
At the time it was showing the above, it was 10.15.41 AM where I am.

Is it possible to tweak things so that the time displayed is the user's local time? Also for the time that posts were made, etc.

The Void
Surprised it wasn't showing Canadian time.
