Muvizu Play 1.2 Feedback (also Play+) It would be great if they could add a couple of windows formats for example wmv there is a version that the quality is very good and it plays no matter the length. I use this often for things. Also an mpeg format would be good. I have both these on "them other softwares" and rarely resort to these other formats as a result. I dont think anyone can tell the difference in quality.

I also want to say thanks for doing this as its been very hard even with the superman project as of late due to what I had to do to stop it from being stolen as I had put money into rights for music and sound and needed to enter the dreaded content ID arena of youtube in order to chase downloads around. I know that a price tag will upset many and theoretically the concept of money is something that could be done away with if the world leaders decided to. Unfortunately until such a time as we enter the era of star trek where there is no money and everyone can access everything this had to happen.

I am by no means rich but at the end of the day if we want to keep muvizu and its parent company alive and working on this software something had to give. I hope that muvizu makes bucket loads of money now enabling it to pour money into further development and hire more staff.

file locked check in your taskmanager if there are any applications running or muvizu is running twice there were some bugs that if you didnt wipe muvizu off your system completely it would lock up like that. I temporarily had this issue but found a stray instance of muvizu running and after I shut it down it never recurred again.

Newgrounds.com is a web site where you can share your art, animation, games or music with millions or maybe billions of people that visit new ground.




i have been by there before I liked it but it seemed hard to find anything that was not anime so I never went back (not a huge anime fan) I might give it a go again I think it was like 2 years ago now that I checked

anyhow its a flash based movie place although it may have changed supposedly it has 3d cartoons as well but 99.9999% of it is 2D stuff and 3D seems to be only at the bottom. They have a lot of good stuff if you enjoy 2D comics and especially if you enjoy anime hehe

Yeah NG people don't realy like projects that were made with easy tools like muvizu There are lots of music there as well. But again it has to be original



hehe i wasnt speaking of "easy tools" I saw some bare bones cgi stuff but it was rated badly even though it was very good because it was 3d and not anime. However the cartoons were clearly done in maya or blender. They like 2D anime cartoons only from what I can tell.

IN CHINA CAN'T VIEW THE TRAINING VIDEOS I doubt there is anything they can do with the main site to make it get past the massive blocking policies, but maybe they can strip down a page and do something simple although I guess they wont be able to interact with the community. Perhaps on a domain or something with a seperate ip although I guess that you would still have to deal with youtube for tutorials because that is where the videos are hosted. I know another community I use has a special way of doing it they come up on the site as "resident of" instead of any info filtering through but they have managed with some tinkering to get to something usable although it looks rather lonely because we can't really exchange anything but they are using a version of it all be it a really naked version.

Again, my latest Video didn't make it to Muvizu. you have to go to the owner of the tracks and ask their permission to unblock it. Youtube is a middle man. Likely they will ask big bucks to unblock it but look at the listing on your youtube account and search it up. This is mostly a syndication issue likely revolving around the artists wish to not spend money on certain types of licenses. The track is his after all and whether you are disputing it or not if you dont ask before borrowing these issues occur.

click the link in the copyrighted area and look for the info and then do a web search and email or write to the people. In this case though since its an issue with a third party site i am unsure what you can do. Because he is blocking muvizu not the video so it would seem to me that muvizu would have to ask which I dont think they should be in such a position because they are just hosting the video.

also check your syndication tab have you selected to syndicate it everywhere?

if it says everywhere its the artist contact him as he is the one to ask


i tried to reply to your email but your spamguard have my blacklisted as spam anyhow

here is an example again without actually seeing your account and seeing exactly who is claiming once no one can say for sure

this one Star Trek Stoned HD is the work of william shatner who is very much alive and managed by a big music company you need to research it specifically to find out why its blocked I would say this is a legitimate claim


this one Max Miller - Cheeky Chappie HD - I can't say for sure but it looks like max miller has a lot of work in the public domain is that particular track in the public domain? i dont kow I have not listened to a lot of his stuff and would have to research it if it is in the public domain this is not a valid claim even you can dispute it and get it unblocked.


really the only way your going to find out the reasons why is to research them all and research how copyrights are handled and how the youtube interface is working.

copyright law is not exactly cut and dry

Can I make a character play a musical instrument? mm umbrella brandish

anyhow probably not get too hopeful so as not to be disappointed its just well you know something is up when a bug fix is ready and awaiting a release it means like more then just some bug fixes ^^. The question is what prey tell are they up to now so quietly working away in their dark caves of planning and cones of silence!

Can I make a character play a musical instrument? I can see from the little screenshot that possibly you discovered all instruments? if not there are a set of basic instruments to use in the character area for customizing your little character.

Also my spidey sense is tingling but I think that this next muvizu play release might contain something other then just bug fixes. I could be wrong and am trying not to get my hopes up but the delay in release is making me wonder about what else they are adding into the software. If it was just a bug fix it would have been patched by now

shader model 3 I would assume that most of that is the cost of the card usually they dont charge much to slap a card into a pc although I would never pay anyone to add an upgrade to my pc cause i am a cheap so and so. Unfortunately i am one of those people who dont think its a good investment to upgrade a pc that is likely out of date to start with. Because businesses take advantage by charging the earth.

If this pc is as old as I think it is it might be cheaper to find a used pc with a functioning card in it and canabilise the pc. If you can find a friend who knows about pc's enough to do this you can probably upgrade your entire pc for like 20 bucks and save the rest of your money to buy something better in a few months

My Latest. A Star Trek Spoof. Not in The Gallery ? They may not allow it to play on third party sites there are so many combinations and permutations. The reason why companies allow their stuff to be used on youtube is because its a commercial platform but often they dont allow the stuff to play on third party sites so there is a way to type in domain names you dont want it to play on. The owner might not want it on muvizu or any third party platform. Maybe the owner hates muvizu lol it can be a myriad of reasons.

I could be wrong but if muvizu is saying its blocked that means that is the message they are getting when it plays when they hit play when they try to watch it to moderate it they get a blocked message etc.

It also goes by server maybe the region that the muvizu server in is a place where the license holder has not licensed his music so he has blocked the region. Are you watching the video in the same country as the muvizu server? if so then he is blocking muvizu for some reason be it a general block on third party sites or muvizu in particular.

I had a video that kept disappearing off the muvizu site it was being blocked in the uk (course it was also a false copyright claim but we wont go there) eventually I just took the video down but the video played fine on youtube for me

here maybe this helps? basically they are being nice enough to let you use their stuff without completely removing it but they have decided they dont want you to use it in certain places.

3. yt:state

It’s also important to check the yt:state of the video in the API response. Even if yt:accessControl indicates that syndication is allowed, yt:state might override it. For example, a video that has limited syndication would have the following:<app:control>
<yt:state name='restricted' reasoncode='limitedSyndication'>
Syndication of this video was restricted by its owner.
</yt:state>
You might also see the message “Syndication of this video was restricted by the content owner.” Hence, even if the uploader allows syndication, the content owner could override that and disallow syndication. For example, this could happen if someone uploads a video that contains a soundtrack that is owned by another content owner.


Also this wont help you but myself for false content matches (i dont use copyrighted anything unless i have express permission and am whitelisted by the owner) but any problem videos i come across that are getting repeatedly dinged I tend to just completely remove off of youtube and use dailymotion.

P.S. God i am such a geek! hehe

shader model 3 Yes shader model 3 is a hardware specification so if your card does not support it that means you need to install a card with this ability.

My Latest. A Star Trek Spoof. Not in The Gallery ? hi.. youtube geek here

what has happened is that the tracks are copyrighted and the video flagged in the system. Then the holder of the copyright has gotten a notice and has chosen to block the video. This is not a youtube issue this is the copyright holder using the content id system and noticing the flag and hitting block.

when you use copyrighted material your basicaly spinning a roulette wheel and sometimes you get by without being noticed and sometimes you dont. If the flag is appropriate and its not mislabelled then this time the copyright holder noticed



err just adding this later. If you think this is a mistake then you can disput the content id match and block but beware make very sure your dispute is legitimate you can search youtube on how to dispute a content id match.

the videos were outdated as the ui has changed I suspect he set them on private because they need to be replaced with up-to-date versions.




PS: There will be more videos coming from myself after the next Muvizu update but they will not be tutorials I'm afraid.


That's fine

make some fun animations me too I am moving towards another superman not so blockbuster of cheese.

As someone who has made a mountain of tutorials I can say they are borring as all getout to make and I have lost my flair recently for making really good ones because my eyes glaze over while redoing the same steps over and over until its smooth and fast enough on video to be easily understood. Its someone elses turn

i dunno about anyone else but part of the fun i have with muvizu is actually working these things out for myself. working out the little tricks and finding different ways to do things. i think you are forever learning how to use muvizu to its fullest. but each to their own.



me too i enjoy finding my own way. In this instant world we live in far to many people are conditioned to being handed everything lock stock and barrel. I am just an old bag who has some artistic skill who has taken the time over the years to slowly learn things as I have time. My formal training is geekery revolving around scientific research and whatnot. I am also "old" which means technically it should be harder for me to pick things up and keep it in my brain. However the entire 3d world has fascinated me for gosh a decade or more now and no one pointed me in any direction on how to learn things. The information is there if people take time to look. I dont think dreeko should have to redo all those tutorials not to mention there is a tutorial on how to sit just done blog form plus i have answered the question on how to sit in a car about 2 dozen times on these forums.

The answer to this question is here in written form already for anyone with a will to look and use a search function.
