Beautiful Truth Show Launching On YouTube

WATCH Trailer : https://youtu.be/U3yFL8mTGnU

YouTube LIVE! Broadcasts - subscribe for notification of new shows:
https://www.youtube.com/user/FintanDunne


Pretty much all geared up now to take
The Beautiful Truth shows to YouTube -
with live video and audio presentations.


There are a number of trends intersecting to inspire this move.

Time was when I couldn't risk moving our edgy material to
a platform which could shut us down with little explanation.

But I will still be posting audio versions of the shows - as well
as new YouTube versions right here in forum - just like above.

Another reason prompting this move is that I feel that your views
discussed here are on the cusp of a mainstream breakthrough.

Would that our ol' bud Rumpl could see this truth butterfly unfold
into a wider domain, but the spirit of his long decade burning the
flame of reason is part of the driving force enabling BFN endure.


This YouTube initiative is part of connecting
from BFN to the key mass media platforms.


By now it's clear that violent revolution has been rejected by the
ordinary people powering the change wave in 2016. Instead, we
are about to witness a cathartic surge which will sweep aside the
stale ideologies and myths of the last century.

The traditional website and forum are still the best medium for
worthwhile conversation and well-tended knowledge. That kind of
material deserves and needs more than the instant disposability
of Facebook or Twitter.

I am also implementing an streamlined forum layout for smartphone
interaction -while keeping the existing desktop/tablet layout style.

Facebook/G+ integration into forum threads is also on the cards.

Awesome City Fintan!

You may yet persuade me to embrace social media with this move Wink .

The interface between mainstream and alternative is not so clear-cut anymore: in fact I believe it has become increasingly 'spectrified', so to speak.
That is, there are more and more shades of opinion between dogma and free-thinking.

When we look at the evolutionary level, humans have begun to filter incoming data without a go-between, due to the overall ascendancy of web-based media over print and TV.
This means that the incision of reasoned alternative thinking into the mainstream encounters fewer buffers.
No longer the eavesdropper at the water-cooler, BFN is poised to be there first at morning break, facilitating rather than leading the formulation of pragmatic solutions to universal problems.

So onwards and upwards Folks! Ready to tune into new platforms!

Neil.

Hey Thanks Dude!

Yeah So am I ! Wink

Audio+Video really adds another dimension.......

Kicking off in the next few days.

Right On. Yep. That's what I was trying to say. Wink

There is a clear path to full social media integration.

Step 1 is to upgrade the forum from Phpbb2.x to Phpbb3.x
https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=839625

Then implement the PhpBB Social Media Plugin:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/oa_social_login/

Quote:
Social Login allows your users to login and register with 20+ social networks. It increases your phpBB user registration rate by simplifying the registration process for new users and provides permission-based social data retrieved from the social network profiles.

Supported Social Networks:

Facebook Google Twitter LinkedIn Yahoo PayPal
Foursquare Hyves OpenID LiveJournal Steam
Wordpress.com StackExchange Windows Live Disqus
Blogger Github.com Skyrock.com VKontakte Mail.ru

Social Login increases your registration rate
Social Login helps increasing your user registration rate by simplifying the registration process and provides permission-based social data retrieved from the social network profiles.


Social Login simplifies the login process
Your existing users can furthermore link their regular account to one or more social networks or identity providers and can then use these social network accounts to login without having to remember another username/password combination.


We can maintain the look and feel of the existing forum.
There is a Version 3 of this forum's XAND theme:
http://www.stylerbb.net/download.php?module=viewfile&id=100

With regard to mobiles, there is a mobile-friendly official skin:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/prosilver_mobile/demo/3.0

However, that skin may not be a good solution. The best would be to
mod the existing skin to automatically render a streamlined page
if absolute browser window width is under, say 600 pixels.

This is great.
Have you considered a Vimeo account as well?
I find users there take content a bit more seriously, and there's less chaff to sort through for folks looking.

Good Idea!

Now that I've successfully climbed the mountain of technology Laughing
required to move over from audio to video, I've got time to do it.

Noice. I've been off fb since August last year (can't say I've missed it) and have a look through YouTube quite regularly. So will be nice to add another channel to my list.

Just a note about your first vid, I don't know whether it was something to with formating or your screen size, but some of the info you showed didn't quite centre. Other than that, very informative as usual. Cheers

Nice.
Yeah, I don't mean to sound pretentious but the vimeo crowd might take it more "seriously". To put it a better way it's just a more specific market. They're not just skipping around they're gonna watch it through, participation etc. Sounds elitist in a sense and doesn't mean not to push the YouTube. Hope to work on something together whenever I can get to Ireland. Thinking this year, sorry 2015 didn't work out Smile

Instagram is fun if you like photography.
Facebook gets weird. I'm having a hard time reactivating.
I don't mean to sound morbid or taking this lightly (we've dealt with this recently on the forum), but it helps the rest of the world know when you die.
cheers

NEW HOMEPAGE DESIGN
http://BreakForNews.com


The homepage had two tweet newsfeeds - one text only, the other with photos.
Now all news is going thru one tweet+photo listing (left column in new layout).

We also had a ton of 'Flash' used for rotating graphics and an audioplayer.
But Flash has become rather a liability - the homepage is now flash-free.

The new items on the homepage are Video Shows in the center (growing).
And a Latest Forum Posts list - with feature posts from General Discussion.
