If you've gone to YouTube to watch an unofficial upload of a TV episode, or even a single scene from your favourite anime, you've probably seen the weird things uploaders do to stop YouTube from taking down their videos. Your show might be sped up a bit, the voices pitched down, the video flipped horizontally or covered in digital snowfall. Maybe you suffered through it, recognising that this degraded quality is a necessary sacrifice to avoid YouTube's copyright bots. The bad news is, it was probably completely unnecessary.

When it comes to televisions, bigger isn't always better. Yes, if you have a huge living room then a giant TV is great. However, if your living room is on the smaller side, then you can end up in a situation where you're sitting way too close to that massive screen, even when you're technically sitting on the other side of the room.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Ever walked into one of those 'home cinema' showrooms? It's mad fun.

You wander in, sit on those custom leather chairs. Look up at that world class projector and the crisp audio. You imagine yourself kicking back after a long day at work. Ah, this is the life. You sip on a nice cold drink.

Then you look at the price tag and have coronary.

"So how can I do something kinda like this that doesn't cost $AU400,000?"

Uh, good question.

At New York Comic Con, during the Star Trek: Discovery panel, Alex Kurtzman said something that I've been thinking about a lot. He said that you couldn't do "City on the Edge of Forever" now, because Kirk would have to spend a whole season mourning Edith Keeler.

It seems so logical -- you want your couch facing your fireplace and your TV, and right above the mantle there's a beautiful, wide stretch of wall. So you hang your flat-screen right above the fireplace. And you've just made a TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

For decades, photo and video equipment was designed and tested with only white subjects in mind. Lighting darker skin tones takes a different approach than lighting pale ones. Ava Berkofsky, director of photography on HBO's Insecure, tells Mic how her team beautifully lights the show's black actors, and Mic reporter Xavier Harding demonstrates some of the techniques below.

CBS Corporation is buying Australia’s Ten Network. The giant US broadcaster will acquire the business and assets of Network Ten following the latter's fall into administration. Does this mean we can expect even more US programming on the network? Let's take a look at the details.

Reporters at the Ten Network relayed the news of their employer’s voluntary administration, during a staff meeting. The network was looking to refinance to the tune of A$250 million, after its existing finance was due to expire on December 23.

But Ten’s directors said they were left no choice but to appoint administrators from KordaMentha to try to recapitalise or sell the business. To paraphrase Battlestar Galactica - which originally aired on Ten - all this has happened before, and it will probably happen again.
