These are the steps to create those key.

First step is to log into the development area of Twitter.

Limelight Disable FlashPlayer for HTML5 Player

Well to get back to the roots of the site (tech) for a bit, here is something very interesting that happened while trying to force Limelight to use the HTML5 player on a site. One caveat is that Firefox does not support MP4 which is what Limelight uses when Flash is not available. Currently at the time of me writing this article Firefox does not support MP4, however they should be supporting this very soon, and are just awaiting a 3rd party package first.

Limelight will do everything in its power to try to force you to use their methods for showing video, which means 90% of the time it will use flash.

For this to work you will need a couple of things first.

  • Limelight account with an uploaded video that you want to see always played in an HTML5 video player
  • A browser that can override the user agent (Chrome is best for this)

Life Hack #4 of 90, Cell Phone Light

cellphone_light

Use your cellphone light underneath a water bottle to make a lantern that distributes light better than the direct beam. Coloured liquids make the light look cool.

As a side note this reminded me of an article about low cost housing in the Philippines, that they use clear bottles filled with bleach and water anchored in the ceiling to provide light within the homes. The plastic water bottles provide free light with an output of about 55W. It takes five minutes to make, and using a hammer, rivet, metal sheets, sandpaper and epoxy, it costs $1 to produce.

Stuff required to make this work:

1 – Cellphone with camera light

1 – Coloured bottle of water

I give this device an overall score of 2/5
