Thanks for the tip Kevin! I think this is the one you're using right?

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2390/

I would like to know what's not supported
Firefox rules!!! I will sure give it a try.

I heard about that extension and want to try it but haven't got time yet. Have you done it? If so, what are you thoughts?

Regards,

Ismenio


I use it and I get pretty good results. Video quality is decent, but not great. The extension actually downloads the video files themselves, too.

There is also an extension for Mozilla Firefox called VideoDownloader that will let you download the History of Computer Chess video file.

Hi Christopher,


Quote from: Asiryangguk on November 13, 2005, 02:16PM   

I remain unsure of which films you want, but I can email you all the films I've ever downloaded (i.e. 2) from the computer history museum, and both have to do with chess. 

Thank you for your offer, but the films, that can be found on the website of the computer history museum, are available for me! I don't have problems with these!

The video, that i don't have access to, cannot be found (at least not easily!) on the website and should be more than 2 hours long; so i'm afraid, it has many megabytes!

I don't think, that i can get attachments, that are so big (i have a 10 MB limit for attachments)


thank you again, but I'm afraid, i have to wait!  >:(

To beat a chess computer, unplug it.

Hihi Robert,

I feel sheepish if I totally misread your situation as it stands now, but it seems that you cannot obtain any of these films.

I remain unsure of which films you want, but I can email you all the films I've ever downloaded (i.e. 2) from the computer history museum, and both have to do with chess.  One is a fragment of the other and the program had a release date of 21 January 1985.

I hope this, well, um, helps you! =0

=) Christopher

Aha! I think you got it Robert! It doesn't surprise me that Google (and other sites and portals) would be blocking some content based on geographic location for many reasons.

Here's something that you may want to try. Check this site:

http://www.downloadgooglevideos.com/

They say you can watch and download the videos. I think you need a special player though.

Here's the direct link to the search result pointing to the video I mentioned:

http://www.downloadgooglevideos.com/view.html?docid=-1583888480148765375

Let me know if that works. I'm curious. And say a big "Hi" to Bernhard for me

Regards,

Ismenio

No, it doesn't work either! At least, now I got the message, that i was missing before :
"Thanks for your interest in Google Video.

Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country.

We hope to make this feature available more widely in the future, and we really appreciate your patience."

I also was not successful with downloading this video. It said: "Schnittstelle nicht unterstützt" (interface not supported)

It also doesn't work, when i use this flv-player and try to open the url of the video (the link, that you submitted)

I could only download the trailer (about 230KB), rename it's extension to ".flv" and play it with the flv-player.

At least, now i know, that the video is 7,557,233 msecs long and has a framerate of 28,0173973728215 fps 


Ok, so let's be patient! 


Robert

Hi Ismenio,


Quote from: Ismenio on November  3, 2005, 03:54PM   

I didn't find a link to the video on the original site but your sharp German eyes may see something that I missed. Also, there's great information there that is not covered on the video! Excellent research work! http://www.computerhistory.org/chess

Thank you for this great link; very interesting! Bernhard and me also didn't find the video on this site! 

And Bernhard also wasn't able to play the video! But in contrast to me, he got an advert on video.google.com, that said, that in his area it was not possible to play videos at this time. Sometime in the future they want to make it possible (i don't see this advert! )

And as i am only 1 km away from his home, then i would say, this is the reason, why it doesn't work here!

So, let's wait a while!

Hi Guys!

Sorry Robert, I don't what what's wrong It plays fine for me as well (except for the sound, like everyone pointed out, it's too low! )
I didn't find a link to the video on the original site but your sharp German eyes may see something that I missed. Also, there's great information there that is not covered on the video! Excellent research work! http://www.computerhistory.org/chess

The chess-playing computer Hitech was designed from 1986 to 1988 by student Carl Ebeling (r) under Professor and Senior Master Hans Berliner (l) at Carnegie Mellon University. Hitech’s custom hardware could analyze 200,000 moves per second and was the first computer to be rated over 2400.

Sorry Robert the video works for me as well. Which is unusual because most things don't. 

That is apart from requiring the volume to be at maximum. Then if I get an email while I am watching I get blasted out of my chair by "You have Email" at 100 decibels. 

Excellent video Ismenio. Many thanks.

Hi Ismenio 

Great link - thanks! it works fine for me - have watched first few minutes so far - though sound is a little difficult to pick up.

Sorry, not sure what the source of your problem is Robert    I have DirectX 9 and MacroMedia Flash 7 on my computer. I can't see an option to download but I guess if it is available at over 2 hours it will be a large file.

Best wishes

Chris

Hello Ismenio,


Quote from: Ismenio on October 29, 2005, 02:57PM   

This is interesting, in case you haven't seen it yet. From the Computer History Museum, it's a video covering the history of chess computers. 2h6min long.

I have problems playing the video. When i click on the "Play"-button, it starts playing for a few seconds and then it stops and says: "Click here to watch the entire video" and when i click there, a new empty Google Video search-window (the same as in your link) pops up and nothing happens!

What am I doing wrong? Or is there a problem with my settings?

Direct X 9.0c and Macromedia Flash player 8 are installed...

Do you have an idea?

Or is there a chance to download the video?


thank you,
Robert

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1583888480148765375&q=CHESS

Summary from the page:

Playing chess by computer began in the early 1950s, nearly as soon as computers became available. As a human activity, chess is believed to require thinking, yet in 1997 a massively-parallel supercomputer, drawing on over four decades of continual advances in both hardware and software, defeated the best human player in the world.Does playing chess require thinking? Or is human thinking perhaps a form of calculation, parts of which a computer can mimic? What is the tradeoff between knowledge and search? Was Claude Shannons 1950 prediction that studying computer chess might lead to applications in other areas fulfilled? This panel, comprising seminal contributors to the solution of this challengeincluding two of AIs leading pioneerswill discuss these and other questions as well as the origin and development of computer chess and what it tells us about ourselves and the machines we build."
