New: willl all my YouTube video links break in an HTML 5 driven future?

YouTube API Blog announces that YouTube will switch to a new embedding code that uses an iframe. "If you use the new embed code style, your viewers will be able to view your embedded video in one of our Flash or HTML5 players, depending on their viewing environment and preferences. In instances where HTML5 isn't supported (e.g. our HTML5 player can't play videos with ads), we use Flash."

Here's an example of embed code:

YouTube says that "an additional benefit of the new embed style is that it will eventually allow embeds to work on mobile devices, which typically use a built-in player instead of Flash or HTML5." iPhone, Android phones and other mobile devices use a special application for YouTube, while mobile browsers use plug-ins that detect YouTube's embedding code and replace it with some code that can be handled by the built-in YouTube app. The new embedding code will allow YouTube to use the HTML5 video tag in browsers that support this feature.

Andy James: shred knowledge interview

6 Your a metal player by reputation but Ive seen you play some very fusion type soloing over a competition track,
are you into any of the fusionists like Shawn Lane and Holdsworth.

I do play other stuff, probably more blues than anything, but I have in past dabbled with fusion type things but have never followed up on the theory side of things, thus holding me back somewhat with the jazzier changes.
Ive never been very geeky with that sort of stuff, not being very studious when it comes to learning why something works. I'm a great believer in just doing what comes natural. Shawn Lane has influenced some of the more economic ways of playing fast.
I'm not too familiar with Holdsworth but having got into Scar Symmetry, I have found out that their main guitarist Per Nillson is very inflenced by him, so I will definately check out some of his stuff.

Joe Pinnavaia: Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III the test tube rhino full of rippage!

Well I gave it a go and here it is - mistakes and all. I wanted to come up with something musical and develop a theme and then do a solo. So the front half of the tune is essentially the head and the second pass of the chord progression is the solo and then I loose it at the end. Ha! Literally!

Thanks Laurie and Brett this was definitely FUN!
