  1. 15 Ways to Reduce Image Size without Losing on Quality It is obvious that people use to spend more time on websites which loads faster. To improve the webpage load time, you need to look at so many things including number of loading resources, http requests, page cache, number of JS (JavaScript)/CSS files, media files etc. There are so many tools available to measure the performance of a webpage. Some of the important ones are Google PageSpeed, Pingdom Tool, Yahoo YSlow. Media files like images are one of the most important part of a webpage and adds the beauty to it, but at the same time, images are the most bulky resources which loads on a page. If one can cut the size of images by 25 – 30%, it will improve the page load time by a significant amount. Adobe Photoshop is having a nice feature to save the optimized version of images especially for web, but you need to spend big amount for purchasing Photoshop desktop application or the web version. In this article, I have listed few awesome and free online/offline tools as well as WordPress Plugins to reduce image (JPEG, JPG, PNG) size by up to 90% without much effort. Web Applications 1. kraken.io – If you need an online application to compress image formats like JPEG, PNG, GIF, SVG to a point where the image doesn’t loose on quality, but the size comes down by really good amount. I tried with an already compressed image using a desktop application, Kraken compress that file to an extra 10% without losing on quality. Firefox and Chrome extensions are also available for this application. 2. smush.it – It is a very popular online application to compress images. There is an up-loader as well as URL box to provide the image. There is no way to enter the output quality, the application auto-optimize the image by compressing the same to a limit. 3. imageoptimizer.net – You can upload the image from your computer and give the image quality and size that you want after processing. It gives you some control (very limited) on the output and compression ratio. 4. compressjpg.com and compresspng.com – For more control on the last result’s quality, I would suggest you to use this application. Once you upload the image from computer, a slider appears to auto-control the quality of the last image. There is a preview panel showing the changes according to the quality slider change, and there you can see the final image quality before downloading the image. There is a zoom-in/out feature also available in preview where one can see the quality of the image pixel by pixel. Application is available on different domains for JPG and PNG images. 5. punypng.com – To compress PNG files, you can try this online tool. Upload the image (PNG only) from local computer and get the compress version of the image. 6. tinypng.org – Another quick tool for PNG images for compressing the image to best level without compromising on quality. 7. jpegmini.com – To compress JPEG images up to 5X, you can checkout this tool. There is a up-loader to upload the image from local computer and process the same. Desktop Applications 1. IrfanView (Windows only) – To compress single or multiple images (bulk processing), this is a must have tool. I use to compress all the pictures that I took using my Digital Camera (18MP) before uploading the same on social media sites. You get full control for resizing and image quality for compressing the images. 2. Trimage (Cross Platform – Linux, Windows, Mac) – It is a cross-platform tool for optimizing PNG and JPG files. You can find the details on its GitHub page. 3. ImageOptim (Mac only) – A Mac application to optimize or compress the images. 4. GimpShop (Windows, Mac, Linux) – A very popular and free alternative of Adobe Photoshop with so many tools to work on images including compression tool.
  2. About targeting for video campaigns Video ads run on YouTube and across the web through the Google Display Network. With more than 1 billion users, YouTube is available in 70+ countries and 60+ languages, and offers rich content from all over the world. The Display Network reaches over 90% of Internet users worldwide through 2 million sites and apps (source: comScore). By targeting your video ads on YouTube and the Display Network, you can advertise to consumers at moments that matter. With a wide variety of targeting methods available to you, such as demographic groups, interests, placements, and remarketing lists, you can reach specific or niche audiences based on who they are, what they're interested in, and what content they're viewing. Available targeting methods for video ads Here are the methods you can use for targeting your video ads. These targeting methods are added at the ad group level. It's important to know that with each targeting method you add you narrow, not widen, your targeting. Audience targeting methods let you define who you want to reach. These include: Demographic groups: Choose the age, gender, parental status, or household income of the audience you want to reach. Interests: Pick from available audience categories to reach people interested in certain topics, even when they may be visiting pages about other topics. Learn more about audiences. Affinity audiences: Raise brand awareness and drive consideration with your video ads by reaching people who already have a strong interest in relevant topics. Custom affinity audiences: With custom affinity audiences, you can create audiences that are more tailored to your brands, compared to our broad, TV-like affinity audiences. For example, rather than reaching Sports Fans, a running shoe company may want to reach Avid Marathon Runners instead. In-market audiences: Select from these audiences to find customers who are researching products and actively considering buying a service or product like those you offer. Video remarketing: Reach viewers based on their past interactions with your videos, TrueView ads or YouTube channel. If you've linked your YouTube account to your AdWords account already, we'll create custom lists for you automatically. Learn more about remarketing lists for YouTube viewers. Content targeting methods let you define where you want your ads to show. These include: Placements: Target unique channels, videos, apps, websites, or placements within websites. For example, you can target an entire high traffic blog or just the homepage of a popular news site. Placements can include: YouTube channels YouTube videos Websites on the Display Network Apps on the Display Network Note: When you add Display Network placements, your ad may still run in all eligible locations on YouTube. And when you add YouTube placements, your ad may still run in all eligible locations across the Display Network. Topics: Target your video ads to specific topics on YouTube and the Display Network. Topic targeting lets you reach a broad range of videos, channels, and websites related to the topics you select. For example, you target to the "Automotive" topic, then your ad will show on YouTube to people watching videos about cars. Keywords: Depending on your video ad format, you can show your video ads based on words or phrases--keywords--related to a YouTube video, YouTube channel, or type of website that your audience is interested in. Next: Learn how to add targeting to your video campaigns Starting in January 2017, and gradually becoming available to more and more advertisers through spring 2017, display and video ad groups that don’t have a targeting method will be eligible to show ads on the Google Display Network and YouTube. As a one-time exception, existing ad groups without targeting will be automatically paused to ensure they don't run ads you don't intend to show. Going forward, manually pause ad groups that aren’t ready to show ads. To learn more, go to Pause or resume your ad groups.
  3. Livestream Alerts — Getting Started with YouTube Alerts So, you’re a YouTube creator who is breaking into live broadcasting, and you want to reward new folks for subscribing to you, or for donating. Or you’re a user of the YouTube “sponsor” feature, who wants to let those supporting users get an on-screen thank you. Or perhaps you’ve got an audience supporting you via funding services like StreamTip and want to integrate those into your content. In any of these cases, it’s possible that Livestream Alerts is the tool for you. (This tutorial is also available as a video, for those who are more visual learners.) What is it? Livestream Alerts is a web platform targeted at use during a live stream to acknowledge supporters of the livestream. The intent is to create an in-stream popup that can be used to reward your community for their participation. Livestream Alerts initially supported YouTube, but is intended to support multiple platforms — so whether you stream on YouTube or Twitch, Hitbox or Beam, Livestream Alerts may be a tool you want to use. Livestream Alerts generates a URL you can include in your broadcast software — software like OBS or Xsplit — which automatically displays images and plays sounds of your choosing. You choose what the sounds are and what the images are, and control how they display. In addition, Livestream Alerts can provide customizable text files that can be saved to disk and integrated into your streams, or other options like donation goals across multiple donation services. Simple Setup We’ll start with a simple setup. This tutorial will be based on YouTube, and will not cover all the functionality of Livestream Alerts, so feel free to dig in, or ask questions, if you need more info! First, create an account on livestreamalerts.com and login. Next, connect your Google account to Livestream Alerts. This gives Livestream Alerts permissions to see your incoming subscriptions, fan funding donations, and paid sponsors, needed for the alerts. You only need to do this once, and if you decide you want to stop using Livestream Alerts, you can unlink your account from the accounts page. Now, we’ll start to configure a subscriber notification; this is an alert that will display on screen when a YouTube user with their subscription information shared publicly subscribes to you. Subscriber notifications generally use a sound and an image which displays when the user subscribes, though you can exclude either of these. You can start by uploading your files, or add them during your alert process. One thing to note: Because Livestream Alerts does not use Flash, MP3 support is limited. In general, you should upload a .wav file to Livestream Alerts unless you know that your software supports other file types — most do not. Once we’ve uploaded each of our files — our .wav file as a sound, and our transparent megaphone image file as an image — we can go back to our alert configuration. Connect your Google account (Add New Account, then select your previously configured Google account), and then add a new alert. We’ll now select the sound and image we uploaded earlier from their respective dropdowns. At this point, you can leave everything else at the default, but know that you can configure fonts (using Google Font names, or fonts pre-installed on your computer), or configure what alerts look like with scrolling, colors, and more. Now that we’ve set up our alert, we can test what it looks like. Testing Your Alert Before we even worry about our broadcast software, we’ll test the alert in the Livestream Alerts website: just checking that the popup works. So, go to the homepage, and click the “Go” link, which will open a new tab which will respond to alerts. Now, click “More Info” under configured alerts, and you can click “Test”; this will create a new testing alert which will appear (and play your subscriber alert sound) in the alert page. Once you’ve got the alert looking how you want, you can add it to your broadcast software! Configuring OBS Now that we’ve set up our alert, we simply need to add it as a source to our broadcast software — the software that you use to send data to YouTube, whether it’s OBS, Xsplit, or otherwise. This tutorial will show how to do it via OBS Studio, but all of the software is pretty simple. When downloading OBS, you’ll want to make sure you’ve download OBS Studio and the “Browser Source” package; the latest version can be found for your OS at https://obsproject.com/download#mp . Once you’ve done this, open OBS, and in your scene, add a Browser Source: Under Sources, Click “+” Give the source a name Select the URL from the input box on the Livestream Alerts homepage, and copy the URL. Paste it into your Browser Source config:URL field, and click “Okay” Now position the alert wherever you’d like, and you can go back to your alerts page to test what it actually looks like in OBS. That’s it! Summary In this tutorial, we walked through a basic Livestream Alerts setup for YouTube Alerts. This includes setting up a Google account, uploading files to use for alerts, and setting up an alert, then configuring your broadcast software to use it. There are many more accounts and alerts you can configure, but this basic setup should get you started with using Livestream Alerts in your broadcasts for YouTube.

  5. No idea what most of this means

    Hello FarmerKlein, PC SG is trying to have a panel with our members channel streams. You can see it at https://www.pc-sg.uk/multiyoutube/ I have also include yours. As you can see there are four channels, yours, Grizzly bearsims,, Icelandic farmer and myself. Three of them says a message about why is not possible to embed the video. But you can see that mine is open. The same think happens with playlists. Here you have a small help from YouTube that i did and works for me to be able to embed in other webs Embed videos & playlists You can add a YouTube video or playlist to a website or blog by embedding it. Embed a video On a computer, go to the YouTube video that you want to embed. Under the video, click Share . Click Embed. From the box that appears, copy the HTML code. Paste the code into your blog or website HTML. Embed a playlist Sign in to your YouTube account on a computer. On the left-hand side of the page, click Playlists. For the playlist that you want to embed, click its title. Click Share . Click Embed. From the box that appears, copy the HTML code. Paste the code into your blog or website HTML. Manage video embedding options Turn on privacy-enhanced mode When you turn on privacy-enhanced mode, YouTube won't store information about visitors on your website unless they play the video. Make an embedded video play automatically To make an embedded video autoplay, add "&autoplay=1" to the video's embed code immediately after the video ID (the series of letters that follows "v/"). Embedded videos that are autoplayed don't increment video views. Example: <iframe width="560" height="315" src=" https://www.youtube.com/embed/D6Ac5JpCHmI?&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Start an embedded video at a certain time To have a video start playing from a specific point, add "#t=" to a video's embed code, followed by the time at which you'd like the video to begin playing. For example, if you want a video to start at 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the video, your embed code would look something like this: <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UkWd0azv3fQ#t=2m30s" width="420"></iframe> Add captions to an embedded video Make captions automatically appear on an embedded video by adding "&cc_load_policy=1" to the video's embed code. You can also choose a caption language for the embedded video. To specify the caption language for the video that you'd like to embed, just add "&cc_lang_pref=fr&cc_load_policy=1" to the video's embed code. "cc_lang_pref" sets the language for the captions shown in the video. 'cc_load_policy=1' turns captions on by default. "fr" represents the language code for French. You can look up two-letter language codes in the ISO 639-1 standard. Turn off embedding for your videos If you've uploaded a video and don't want to allow others to embed your video on external sites, follow these steps: Go to your Video Manager. Go to the video that you want to turn off embedding for and click Edit. Under the video, click Advanced settings. Under "Distribution Options", untick the Allow embedding checkbox. Click Save changes. I If you want that your live stream channel is able to be embed in other websites, the you have to do the same in the Live stream configuration

  9. Maybe You Can Do Pigs With Seasons Mod...

    I think that pigs must be avoided in seasons with their setup. At least, I have decided to sell all pigs. The main problem came from the upkeep value we have to pay for the pigs that is very high. 30 € per day per pig makes it totally unprofitable the pigs exploitation. Lets say say we have 100 pigs with upkeep of 30 per day in a six days season length makes makes 18.000 euros, the production of this 100 pigs in six days will be 15 approx and a sale price of 600 € makes 9000 euros income, then 9000 euros loss. prom
  10. Starting Equipment

    Seasons has add many things to the game that is influencing a lot in the answer of your question. I agree with all of you to stay with initial equipment and add some needed. But after seasons came and the possibilities of different season lenght, I think the map maker has to think much more when deciding the initial equipment and clearly I understand your interest in this question. I think than more than specific machines, map maker has to be sure to cover the essential jobs that the gamer will do when playing his map. Essential jobs: Seeding, plowing, fertilizing, harvesting, selling Seed producer, fertilizer producer, liquid fertilizer producer Mow, tedder, wrapping, baling, Storage for straw, hay, Forage storage Feed mixer for pigs and cows Cheap transport systems. Snow and silage bunker management Wood essentials to produce woodchips. Wheeloaders Using second hand machines or older models helps a lot in economy to support the starting of the map. If you put very good equipment for starting, the daily upkeep and the maintenance fees are so high that your finance will suffer a lot Also seasons provide a new systems for loans, not based as vanilla on 200.000 €, the loan will be based on the properties values, fields, and animals and can provide till 1.5 million as loan, that really make sense. A good way to provide good capability of debt is to add animals and fields to the initial property, but if you give animals, also you must give the food to feed them and get winter crops also in the first year , when start the game ready for harvest. As a conclussion. map creator can really now drive how the map is going to be developed through the multiple systems he has now to change the game. Prom
