Hi, I’m new here. I’ve been browsing the forum for the past two days, since I heard Nate mention it in his podcast, and I’m really digging it. Looks like I’m going to spend quite a bit of time here.
For starters, I’d like to mention pinballvideos.com, a pinball video search website I made a few months ago. I’ve been documenting the progress over at pinside, but maybe some of you missed it, so here it is again. In a nutshell: you can search for player names, machines, or tournaments, and the results will link you to the exact game you’re looking for (i.e. to the specific game start time within those hours long tournament videos), with some statistical data on the players involved as a bonus. I think it turned out pretty neat, and I’ve been using it quite a bit myself for tournament research.
Any feedback appreciated. This seems to be a players’ forum, which is very cool, so it’s all the more interesting to me to hear your opinions on it and any suggestions on how it might be improved.
All the videos from the PAPA channel should be in there, but there’s some cool stuff from other channels, too. I’m not making any money off it, I just did it for my own benefit and couldn’t find a compelling reason not to share.
