Countdown on YouTube [etc.]

Post by L'oisleatch McGraw » Tue Jul 23, 2019 9:52 pm

Having recently uploaded two of the more humorous moments from my CD run to YouTube, I searched the forum to see if there was a "Countdown on YouTube / Dailymotion / Vimeo" thread here. Long story short... there is now! :mrgreen:

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Here are my two to start the ball rolling:-

Short clip from Episode #6678 [S77E064]
(A creative interpretation of the pronunciation of GIAOUR, made into a 'rap' of sorts.)
https://youtu.be/GYxzK9k-nl4

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Short clip from Episode #6682 [S77E068]
(The first six letters of this 8-max selection featured a dodgy word. 4 people in the studio declared 6s, but none went for this one...)

Many people have differing opinions regarding the best game of Countdown of all time...
For me, this is it. No contest:-

Part 1 [https://youtu.be/oOQxfUXypZI]
Part 2 [https://youtu.be/yJFf5yCmtLQ]
Part 3 [https://youtu.be/zkIQKtCRvr4]

Yes. I'm a bit of a YouTube / video-editing hobbyist.

Just made another video based on my shows from 3 years ago:-
https://youtu.be/x6UZFNauHSQ
This video contains 30 of my best letters rounds, and the cumulative maximum score is 250pts.
Play along and see how much of the max you can secure...

The 2nd video in my new series on "Countdown tutorials" has just gone online...
Possibly a little more entertaining than the first as it features a full 15R walkthrough.

There are more of these now...

Episode #2.5 - Challenge
Episode #3 - Letters
Episode #4 - Numbers

The numbers one went online 5mins ago, and features input from Apterites Hazel Drury and Dan Byrom, and also a (very) brief homage to Apto creator, Charlie Reams.

A Countdown of Irish Octochamps why not! :)
(This is part 1 of a 3-part series.)

Part 2 is going to be good!!!
Will upload it not next Monday, but the Monday after.

I tried to find as much actual TV footage of players doing their thang as possible... but it was very very hard to find. For most contestants there is nowt.
In video 1, some footage of Mark on Catsdown was included, but it got the entire video copyright struck and blocked, so I was forced to trim out that segment for the video to be publicly viewable. :( Thankfully normal Countdown aren't quite as prickish about copyright issues, so those clips are ok to use.
