Videos

I upload most videos to youtube and there are far more than displayed here

Below are the most recent ones and in the Archive list to the right you can find older videos, or just view them all on YouTube.

I would prefer to host them myself but I haven’t found a practical solution yet. Have tried FCP X outputs but it does not work on enough browsers.

All videos from 2013 and forward are in 1080p so make sure that YouTube adjusts the quality to HD and it should look better in full screen, even though the YouTube compression is awful. Most of them are also in 50 FPS. Some people prefer 24, 25 or 29.98 FPS to get that TV or movie look, but I find 25 fps very annoying to look at. YouTube sadly does not show them in 50 FPS at the time of writing even though they has been uploaded as such. YouTube now supports 50 or 60 FPS, so I am converting those I uploaded with proper framerate. Some of them I had uploaded in half framerate so they stay that way. Still the compression kills a lot of the quality.














Day 6 - A perfect day

Nothing interesting happened, it started raining and after arriving in Village of Oak Creek, I spent the rest of the day just dilly dallying, but still it was the best day yet and I don't think I have ever been happier just driving down a road. The kind of day you don't want to end.


(grr I need a better pop filter to get rid of plosives)

An extended weekend to Winterberg bike park in Germany

Sometimes, all you want is to go down the hill all the time on your bike.

Day 5 - Visiting the Titan II missile museum

Today the weather forecast promises sun with a slight chance of Mutually Assured Destruction and nuclear fallout. Again I go cruising down a Scenic Byway, the Patagonia-Sonoita Scenic Road, and afterwards I visit the Titan II Missile Museum.

Water cooling my PC - Part 1

In 2004 I built a water-cooled PC, when that gave up the ghost in 2008, I got my first Mac and haven't had a home built PC,,, until today.

Red wine and nuclear annihilation

IN A WORLD full of fun and games, all that matters is red wine, cruising in a Corvette, mountain biking, and total nuclear annihilation.

In this highly acclaimed action packed series of videos, we are taken on a roller coaster ride of laughs and excitement as our hero travels through the unforgiving Sonoran desert.

Day 4 - Got woken up by coyotes

Day 4 of my vacations begins a 4:30AM where I got woken up by coyotes and then decided to go back to sleep. I then drove to southern Arizona, almost to the border to Mexico to stay for two days in Green Valley. Once there, I realise that I should have stayed in Madera Canyon. :)

National Mustang Day

April 17 is national Mustang day so I have this small tribute with some of my own recordings.

Day 3 - Hoover Dam, Joshua Forest Scenic Road & Rancho de los Caballeros

Leaving Las Vegas with a short stop at Hoover dam for old times sake. Driving down Joshua Forest Scenic Road and staying at Rancho de los Caballeros.

2018 Road Trip - Taking one for the team - Postcard to the office

After starting my vacation, I created this video for my dear colleagues at work. At my last vacation, I sent a postcard (through Touchnote) that took 3 weeks to arrive, so why not a video "postcard" instead. :)

There's some lines in Danish, but I have translated them into English in the subtitles.(which are also  burned in so I am sure everyone will see them)

2018 Road Trip - Day 2 - YOU WON*T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED!

I made a stupid title on a video. 

But more importantly on this second day of my vacation I managed to get into a relaxed mood and even winning some money. It's a good start on the vacation.

2018 Road Trip - Day 1

Today I take the Corvette for a spin to enjoy the weather and to record a few videos. Still a bit jet lagged though.

2018 Road Trip - Day 0

I travel to the other side of the planet for a vacation and I am wondering if I get the car I rented.

Audioblocks new policies and subscription plans

This video is about AudioBlocks new policies. Since I use music from them in my videos, I have to consider if I want to pay $200 to continue to do so.

The search for happiness, part 2

The final video from Fuengirola. After assembling the bikes and having out a bit, everybody are getting out on the trails and having fun.

The search for happiness, part 1

In this two part series we go to Fuengirola, Spain to get away from the soul sucking weather in Denmark. In this video it is mostly relaxing, hanging out, eating meat and enjoying the weather. I have installed myself in a small vacation apartment and time is flying faster than ever.

Follow lightning strikes in real time

A quick tip: Follow lightning storms live to see if you are likely to be in the direct path or maybe just for fun.

YouTube downgrades my channel


YouTube no longer wants me as a part of their "Partner Program", well I guess I will have to learn how to live without those $0,50 a day. .:D  I enabled it to see what it was about, so, oh well.

——————

Today we are announcing changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). While our goal remains to keep the YPP open to as many channels as possible, we recognize we need more safeguards in place to protect creator revenue across the YouTube ecosystem.

What's Changing

Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, Martin J, is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.

One of YouTube’s core values is to provide anyone the opportunity to earn money from a thriving channel. Creators who haven’t yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy, our Help Center, and all the resources on the Creator Site to grow their channels. Once your channel reaches the new threshold, it will be reviewed to make sure it adheres to our policies and guidelines, and if so, monetization will be re-enabled.

5 hours of scenic roads, and some other roads as well.

5 hours of driving. Inspired by the screen saver on my Apple TV, I decided to make one long video of driving so I could have it running in the background as a live painting.

I have kept the original sound. :)
