The folks over at Click.TV (http://www.click.tv) combined our MacRumors Keynote transcript (http://www.macrumors.com/events/mwsf2007.html) with the Video (http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2007/01/20070109183031.shtml) of Apple's Keynote address. The result is a searchable, indexed video that allows you to jump to specific moments during the keynote video.

Visit: http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2007/01/20070114182402.shtml

Some notes:

- Clicking on "macrumors" track on the playlist overlaying the video will play just the comments, skipping the video in between. Click "ENTIRE VIDEO" to revert back to the entire video.
- Searching on a term - e.g. "ipod" - creates an "ipod" track and plays all comments with the word
- Click BLOG to grab code to drop on a blog or EMAIL to email this to someone else. Note that you can change the start and end points to email just a portion of the whole thing.
- If a track is selected (rather than "ENTIRE VIDEO") in the playlist, you can BLOG or EMAIL just that track. For instance, search "ipod", then email that track.
- If you click the upper right button, the comments panel goes away and comments appear as subtitles overlaying the bottom of the video.

I agree. This is a very nice feature and I'm not sure why it would be a negative. :confused: :rolleyes:

Perhaps its voted negative because it is seen as bulk being added to the site.

Providing links to the keynote are a great idea...Annotating and posting the keynote on a rumors site...perhaps that is straying from the idea of a rumors site.

Then again, like the Phoenicians said, "The only constant is the sea"...and the sea is always in motion.

Arn- Macrumors' webmaster posted that. I guess at this point if you don't like it, you could surely try thinksecret.com :eek:

hey guys...

seems a cool/useful tool to track through the keynote video. Perhaps people don't like embedded video content... but it doesn't play automatically. :)

Wow, you guys really like to turn on anyone who may be dissenting. Gee-whiz, sorry for trying to say that there are two sides to a coin...I didn't realize that open-mindedness was anti-MacRumors.

And for the record, I think Comrade Arn is a litte more open to criticism (see definition of criticism) than you make him out to be. Right Arn?

Link please.

Rationale: The Phoenicians (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenicians) were a coastal peoples who established colonies throughout the Mediterannean using their advanced boatmaking and navigation. They have become known as the "Sea lords of antiquity" (http://magma.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0410/feature2/index.html?fs=www3.nationalgeographic.com&fs=plasma.nationalgeographic.com) because of their use of the sea. It should be unsurpising to learn that their culture, religion, and philosophy is derived from their proximity to and heavy use of the sea. What I quoted is a paraphrasing of a Phoenician belief which has been adapted throughout the centuries to become the modern-day cliche: the only constant is change. For the Phoenicians, the constant was the sea, and the sea was continually in flux, thus paradoxically, the only constant was change.

For the record, I have yet to pass judgement on whether or not change is good...so for the record...I think dynamicism is good.

I love MacRumors and all.. but seriously, Engadget's live coverage owned you guys. If I were providing live coverage of any event.. I'd head over there and take a few notes first.

Not to be a party-pooper, but doesn't the beginning of the keynote quicktime say, "You are strictly prohibited from making a copy or modification of, or from rebroadcasting or re-encoding, this broadcast without the prior written permission from Apple public relations..."?

Yeah, Cisco will sue them for this.

Any suggestions you might have will be taken into account. I think DocQ had a good summary of our approach, which has always been fast/furious, get the info out there. In the future, we will probably integrate a slightly slower, fuller sentenced approach in parallel with the real-time updates.

ack... look at the headlines on the main page: "MWSF, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, MWSF..."

What is this, iPhonerumors.com?!?

I like the fact that Apple finally made their Keynote a free download on iTunes. If only they can do past Keynotes too.

Very cool idea. It appears as though either the server is getting hammered, or it doesn't work with FireFox.

Doesn't work me either. Firefox on Windows.

I just found this little tip out today - if you hold down the ctrl key and scroll with your mouse or trackpad, you can zoom in on the video (or any other content) without any speed hiccups.

I'm the CEO & Founder of Click.TV. Indeed, all the load we've had today has at times maxed out our systems. We're sorry about that. We're working on a fix right now. Fortunately one of our programmers is in Europe, just waking up now.

I promise this fix plus a heck of a lot more cool stuff soon. For instance, look for us to do the same thing with the State of the Union speech next Tuesday night (1/23) on a famous political blog site with commentary from some prominent political commentators.

Which is great as long as you don't mind a giant pointer sitting in the middle of the video.
