Friday Fun Link – defaultfile.name YouTube Randomizer

This site, defaultfile.name, is fascinating – it looks through YouTube for random files that have been uploaded without the default filename given by the camera or smartphone (DNSC209, MVI753, IMG9903, etc.) being changed to something more descriptive and searchable.

For that reason, most are fairly low view count videos, often quite short, and provide all sorts of interesting glimpses of the random experiences of humanity (the site also has SafeSearch enabled so you’re unlikely to come across something overly disturbing.)

Here’s five things I saw clicking randomly…

  1. Somebody reeling in a fish
  2. Two dogs playing in a yard
  3. Someone panning across an empty swimming pool
  4. A guy singing on a stage in Vietnam
  5. Some dude playing recorder
