The youtube clock that times all their videos does not use the Gregorian calendar. Go to youtube, my fellow tin foil hat wearers...
I'm posting this in skunkworks even though youtube provides evidence of this with each and every single video that they have. ( mods please move if necessary)

Go and check out what I am saying. It's true. Youtube has it's own clock. They are not using the Gregorian seconds. Hot damn it.
Check it out and then come back here and tell me " wtf" or why that is. Youtube wants to alter time perhaps? Make their own calendar?

How do you know this? I do know of a way to test this. It is simple. Make a test video of a clock and see if the time on the clock on the video match. If 3 minutes on the clock on the video pass but only 2 or 4 pas on the Youtube clock than we will have proof of this. If I had a camera I would try it my self just for fun.

Im not really sure what you are talking about, I don't post videos on there and all I ever do is watch....I mean listen to music from the music videos that are posted on there. What am I supposed to be looking for?

Yes they want to alter time. Thanks for saving the world from their manipulation
of time. You may have just saved us all. And for that I am thankful.

Hmmm I just watched a youtube video with my windows clock open above it and the time stamp on the video matched exactly with the time on my pc.

This can only mean one thing... Microsoft is in on it too

I just checked several of my videos uploaded to YT and compared the time length that YT is showing to the time length of my original file and don't see any discrepancy like you're referring to. Therefore I'm not understanding what you're referring to.

That is why we refer to the time estimate for copying files or downloading or whatever as Microsoft minutes.

This could be because of the codec (coding / encoding) using on particular video formats. I posted a Youtube video using a DivX codec, and the audio went completely out of sync with the video.

It's codec, that's what it is. Thank you.

How ironic is that? the toroise and the dragon? and nobody else even stopped to think that youtube had it's own seconds? Am I the apple? Am I the apple here? Am I Vince Vaughan's character from swingers?

Thought I'd chime in on this...many times the problem is a difference
between frame rates not being calculated correctly between the
audio & video tracks. Many video output/editing programs on the consumer
level output 30 frames per second when broadcast NTSC video used in
North America is actualy 29.97 frames per second which is a discrepency
of about 3 seconds per hour...however it only takes a 2 frame discrepency
between the sync of an audio & video track to make people think
that something is WRONG with the media file.

This means that using source video that is 29.97 fps and converting it
to 30 fps in your video editing/conversion utility will cause the audio
to drift out of sync with the video. The underlying reason is that the
underlying video conversion utility was created by people who were
not versed in professional video production and lack an understanding
of 29.97 fps vs. 30fps audio/video sync. Other problems are caused by
consumer-level or unwary video editors mis-interpreting something
called Drop-frame vs non-drop frame SMPTE timecode which can
confuse said people enough to cause improperly edited video tracks
to be badly synced with an audio track.The more cuts and splices
there are between video scenes, the worse the problem.


These problems are in fact artifacts from the 1950's when black & white TV
was starting to be converted to colour tv and engineers tried to maintain
compatability between B&W and Colour TV by introducing a technical
marvel called colour-burst to broadcast TV signals to create our
"Modern" NTSC video that could be viewed on BOTH B&W and colour TV's.

The downside of this was the introduction of unsynced video & audio
when NTSC TV signals are digitized into binary computer files
without any understanding by users of what happens to a 29.97 fps
broadcast video stream when it is changed to a 30fps digital video file.

The technical explanation is a bit more complicated than that
but I hope this missive sheds some light on why some
computer video files seem to be out-of-sync.

Hope it helps!

P.S.

Another issue is caused by the differences in time that
it takes to decompress the separate audio & video streams
in a video file for playback.

Many video formats such as MPEG2 or MPEG-4 use large
groups of frames when compressing video files which means
that the computer has to load more chunks of video data into
memory before displaying the video portion than when decompressing
the MUCH SMALLER audio portion of a video file.

The amount of delay introduced when decompressing and displaying video
versus decompressing and playing audio tracks causes an audio drift of
usually between 3 to 10 frames which is more than enough to be a noticable
problem for our brains, which are EXPECTING the moving lips of your
favorite newscaster to match what is currently being heard by our ears.

Codec? I did not get what this was, is codecs are what the computer uses to play videos, I think, so what does this have to do with time? Or does codec have a conspirational meaning? And as I understood, Microsoft is in this too?
