This week's trick is courtesy of Arjan - a very nice addition to the growing world of 2 diabolo genocides.

From what I can see, that looks like a great trick, but I can't really see what you're doing :(  Would you mind filming it again? :P
It takes 24 muscles to smile, 42 to frown, and only 4 to hit someone in the face. Luckily for you, I need the exercise.

People make up the same things all the time, i on the other hand have blatently just stolen it from Arjan, but he doesnt mind.

As for that video, very cleanly done, well done. Nice appearance of Niels in there, and great music. Keep it up.

Thnx people! I discoverd it myself from some inspiration off a trick done by Antonin that had nothing to do with a genocide. As the diabolo hit`s the backside of the string, and travels in the right (good) direction (for me that is left), it seems so obvious.
Thnx you people,

Go on and hit it! I hope about having new things soon. I`m serious, my next thing is not stolen from anybody, it could only be stolen from me  :D

I've already seen your trick, Arjan. Nice one :wink: Keep it up :D

P.S. If you convert from wmv/avi to mpg, you should set the format on 352 x 288 to prevent the obscured beginning. (instead of 720 x 576)

Huh?  :-s   When I play this video it looks identical to the original WMV file. I assume the obscuring people talked about has to do with Neils, not the video quality. The resolution shouldn't have any effect on the playback as long as an appropriate bitrate is chosen.

I also have a 352x288 version which I plan to use as the permanent smaller file but I thought that those that follow the videos of the week closely would appreciate a full quality version.

Here's the lower resolution file if you're interested:

Umm, well that could be a problem with my computer. If I play a high resolution mpg video, the first 3 seconds are very shaky/slow, (well don't know the exact word really) I don't have this problem with a smaller resolution.

LOL, Norbi has also a much more visible version, he might put that online, or let me. I was just lucky I had this trick on video, me and Niels were just fooling around.
But it is not so hard to figure out.
