Blu-Ray Tip of the Moment
Boy, this falls into the slap on the forehead, why didn't I think of it category.
So, we've had a Blu-Ray player for about 8 months now and have one single title: The Neil Young Archives. Which is OK, for sure and we count our blessings that we do. But that's all our Sony PS-3 has been used for -- just NYA.
That is until we read this comment by wmcgurn regarding a cover by St. Vincent's Annie Clark and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon Cover Neil Young's "Harvest Moon":
Here's an example where getting a blue ray player for the Archives has paid dividends. I never spent too much time watching music on YouTube because of the small screen and poor speakers on my computer. I just watched this version of Harvest Moon (Great!)streaming thru the YouTube portal on my blue ray - playing on an HD TV screen and through my surround system.
I'd like to see more BD live downloads but I can keep occupied in the meanwhile surfing internet videos. Maybe I'll check out Sir Paul with Neil doing "A Day in the Life" again....
Talk about "doh"?!
All along -- we too had been watching YouTubes on a tiny little square on PC speakers.
So we headed right over to our recent favorite YouTube clip of
Wilco covering "Broken Arrow".
The brilliant Wilco cover of the Neil Young penned Buffalo Springfield "wall of sound" epic Broken Arrow. Recorded on February 23, 2010 at Hamilton Place, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This thing rocked on our PS-3 plugged into our system.
Now, we'll say this. Dealing with the URL is a challenge on the Blu-Ray. Here's what we did. On the YouTube channel -- which is a menu pre-select -- do a search on "Wilco Broken Arrow". There were only 3 matches that came up. The Hamilton version is the longest and best. You then have to select the choice and move the cursor over to the selction and hit play.
It's tricky the first time. But well worth it for HD YouTube videos that you'd like to enjoy. Or get some value out of your Blu-Ray player.
Cool. Thanks a bunch wmcgurn!
