Movie Watching Suggestions
Note: If you are not watching the movies directly from this thread (such as watching on a TV or other YouTube capable device), the easiest way to locate the movies is to register on YouTube and login, then briefly play each movie selection from this thread. Then, the movies will show up in your YouTube history and you can easily select the PNF movie, cue it, and then be ready to watch with the PNF group.
It is best to have two windows open so that you can watch the movie in one window and chat in the other.
This can be accomplished in a MS Windows environment by starting a movie and dragging the browser tab away from the browser until a separate window is created. Then re-size the window so that just the movie is showing. The other option to create a second window is to start the movie and hit the YouTube icon lower right hand corner. This will create a new window on some computers or you can drag the browser tab to create a second window. Re-size the chat and movie windows until these fill the computer screen.
The other option for viewing and chatting is to use two devices ( phone, iPad, tablet, computer, TV) together to create the two windows. The second device must be capable of playing YouTube. For example open the ParaNormalForum ( PNF) with your phone and use this for your chat device. Next open the PNF with a second device such as an iPad and play the movie on this device.
You can also play the movie on your TV if the TV supports YouTube/Vimeo* or you have a streaming device like Apple TV or Roku. In this case you will have to search YouTube/Vimeo for the movie being played. A nice trick is to search for all movies earlier in the evening so that they show up in the YouTube search history. Then come movie time, you can easily pick the next movie.
The movies are listed above in this thread. We like to start each movie on cue from a movie host so that everyone is at the same place in the movie. This makes comments much more timely and meaningful.
Note: If you are new to the PNF Saturday Movies, welcome. It is a lot of fun. Practice the above procedures to see what works best for you. Ask questions if the procedure above isn't working for you. The PNF has lots of friendly members willing to assist. Movie night is meant to be stress free
