As a heavy GApps GMail user, recently I’ve started receiving the 400 error “Bad Request” when several GMail accounts are opened. After googling a little I’ve found the following solution by WordPress.com Brajesh user:
Most of my current job site’s visitors are located in Russia and other CIS countries, once we’ve started to think of video publishing we undertood that we need a good content delivery network (CDN) with a point of presence (PoP; ideally – points) located in Russia. I’ve conducted a micro-research and the results are below.
Vimeo is a very popular videohosting and it uses Akamai (prooflink). Those guys don’t show where their PoPs are located at, but have published a map of their offices. Stockholm, which has a internet cable going through the city, is on the list, and that’s good; obviously, there should be a PoP there, so we accept it. Also they have Krakow and Hamburg on the list, but we aren’t sure about those.
Below is a repost from the following source: Download Brightcove videos | Words. It’s translated into Russian; the text below is the almost the same as the original one, all the changes are just step numbering added (so this may be concerned as a ‘step-by-step’ guide).
How to download Brightcove videos
Brightcove typically delivers videos via a flash stream – making it almost impossible to download (as it is a stream, there is no file to save). A video capture of the stream might be possible, but there’s an easier way if the video has a .mp4 “fallback option”.
Today is the 70th anniversary of the greatest of WWII battles – the Stalingrad battle.
My granddad and his sister were children during the battle – now they’re Children of Stalingrad. And I’m enormously proud of them.
The vido below is a clip made by the Medusa Scream group – originally, they’re from Volgograd. I’m proud of them, too – they’ve made an awesome video combining nice music with fantastic chronicles.
We remember. We’re proud.
P.S.: After Valentina Matvienko’s proposal to rename Volgograd to Stalingrad I’ve been asked by some friends if I support the proposal or not. So, personally, I do – and here’s why:
Stalingrad is a brand. How many people out of CIS know Volgograd? Not many. Instead, Stalingrad is well known by lots of people, especially, say, Germany and UK. As far as the city will host a football championship in 2018 it’s more than important – city needs tourists so much.
The decision to rename Stalingrad to Volgograd was Nikita Khrushyov’s subjective political decision as a part of his personal war with the Stalin’s cult of personality (he is well known for his impulsive and subjective decisions). So much time has passed away, and considering the previous point, renaming the city could be a good idea.
