YouTube today introduced a new feature, Quick Capture, which allows you to "record a YouTube video instantly", with your webcam.

If you want to try it out, here the link – but it takes ~forever to "live" on the Net.

It doesn't seem to work with me. I'm using Safari and trying to record from my built in eyesight. I click record, but and it removes the record button, but then says it isn't recording.

Andrew > I have Firefox 1.5 on windows, and it does the same for me. When I click on the button "record", it disappears and no one other button appears...

BTW, why are you still using FF/Fx 1.5?

LOL!!! I can only do that with my left eyebrow. SAD. =O(

Haochi, I was really looking forward to the black rimmed plastic glasses after years of wire frame ones. It thought it looked weird at first, but they have really grown on me.

For those of you who want the crazy eyebrow ninja moves, the key is to practice continuously. I often sit in class and move my eyebrows up and down as practice. I don't think anything of it, but if people see me, they must think it is really weird. Also, my right eyebrow is much better than my left.

Can't practice... my right eyebrow won't budge. =o(I can move both of them upwards at the same time – e.g. like when you go "huh?" both of your eyebrows move upwards in parallel. Ah, well, too bad for me. LOL

Can't do it. I blame it on bad genes ;)

Don't feel so bad, I can't make my tongue into a U (which is genetic).
