        What program people using these days to download YouTube? Or do u have premium?

        • +7 votes

          Plenty of options but I prefer http://jdownloader.org/ for all my downloading needs as its open source and free and very powerful.

            @Vyviel: Thanks

          •  

            @Vyviel: In the past, a video was just one file. Now it's broken up it chunks. Does this cater for that? I collect music videos off YouTube, and I haven't been able to download anything for the last year or so.

            •  

              @flaminglemon: Yeah it does and its constantly updated. You can either download the full video or an audio version. It can automatically discover downloads when you copy the videos URL to your clipboard.

              Works for most other sites too.

                @Vyviel: Does it only work for youtube?

                •  

                  @richmond12: Works for a bunch of different sites and not just videos.

          •  

            @Vyviel: Is there any way to download videos from fb live or fb video uploads? In the past i had videos in groups that were great memories but a after leaving said groups lost access.

    Don't watch it with kids under 5. my daughter was scared and cried. I don't want to spoil it, but one scene is hard for them.

    •  

      Thanks for the heads up @ggzdwy

      it confused the hell out of my kid, lol

      I just watched it twice in a row with my 1 year old daughter. She loved it. Methinks you need to teach your kids a bit of dark humour…

        My 6 month old daughter is a big Tarantino fan, she particularly likes Inglourious Basterds.

        • +7 votes

          I bet she gets all the nuances of Black Mirror episodes as well.

          Have you started her on A Clockwork Orange yet or are you going to wait until 12 months like the sage gentleman above?

        The movie is criticising new generation for not following the chinese traditional culture…… It "touches" a lot of older generation people for not passing down the good culture

        • +2 votes

          lol that is not what the short is about. Did you miss the part where they reconciled at the end?

          •  

            @ippy: Where it was the son's responsibility to pursue forgiveness for wanting to be his own person? There's a reason a lot of people who have had tiger parents found this short rather traumatising.

      •  

        Yeah my one year old didn't understand things enough to get frightened.

        That will start to change.

      My 6 years old cried like a baby watching this as he thought the mother was a cannibal. Ain't watching this again with him in a hurry.

    •  

      Which scene? (PM me)

      My 6 y.o. daughter was shocked, then she said “That’s savage!” and then proceeded to laugh.

      I guess you didn't work out Bao also means baby in Chinese, so the name is perfect.

      All due respect, but your comment belongs in the youtube movie comments. Posted here is kind of a spoiler.

    I'm confused. Disney Pixar posted the Bao movie a month ago on Twitter and has been "free to watch" ever since.

    https://twitter.com/DisneyPixar/status/1066059058082328577

    What's special about this other than it being on YouTube, and worse, only for a limited time?

    • +2 votes

      Not sure, but all the news articles on the net suggest it's free from today. Maybe this…

      Heartwarming moments are meant to be shared. Bring home behind-the-scenes, exclusive footage from Bao and 10 other critically-acclaimed shorts when you get the Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 3 on Digital.

        Either it was an oversight by them embedding the whole movie in their month old tweet, or they've done the rounds with the press this week to get it even more eyeballs.

        The part she ate it.

        • +5 votes

          Apologies if I over-explain things, just not sure how much you grasped.

          So the dumpling wasn't real. The dumpling was a figment of her imagination and metaphorically represented her son (the human boy at the end). The mum was simply reminiscing all the cherished moments of bringing up her son from birth, through adolescence and into adulthood where he moves out to live with his fiancee. She dedicated her whole life to her son and now he wants to move out. In her fantasy, she was able to stop him from leaving by eating the dumpling (the manifestation of her son in her fantasy), but this also broke the dreamstate and brought her back to reality. This dream was her way of controlling that which she had no control over i.e. her son leaving her to live his own life away from home.

          Also, this is just my interpretation of it, and different people will have their own.

          In addition, in old Chinese/Chinese-liked Asian culture, when a mother is angry, disappointed or hopeless (cannot do anything more) of her son, sometimes she may say something like "I should give birth to a "Bao" rather than you, in which I can eat it." (this maybe no more popular)

        That still does not answer the question. There are a lot of short animation by Pixar that are for free. This is just one of them.
