Offline YouTube for Countries with Crap Internet (Philippines included!)

Offline YouTube for Countries with Crap Internet (Philippines included!)

YouTube is taking pity on viewers from India, Philippines, Indonesia. Allowing the download and retention of videos for up to 48 hours. This means we can say goodbye to buffering and watch that favorite clip for 2 days. What a great idea.

I have not been able to get this to work on cellular data here in Baguio city. Can't connect to hotel wifi. So I will have to test this in Mandaluyong with my cable internet from SkyCable (2.5 months of erratic service already) which is not certain also. 

So this is a great idea if you can get the damned video to download in the first place. It is also worth noting that maybe all the videos I selected are really restricted because of copyright or intellectual property issues. 

Have you been able to get offline YouTube to work? Which video gave you success?

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
