    Scientology’s secret sites: The Bunker premieres drone footage never before seen of ‘Int Base’.

    From Tony Ortega: http://tonyortega.org/2016/09/07/sc...-drone-footage-never-before-seen-of-int-base/

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    Recently, the Underground Bunker was contacted by an anonymous source who said he had something rather spectacular he wanted to share with our readers. We were stunned when we saw what he was talking about. He has made super-high-quality films of Scientology facilities, using a 4K camera mounted on a drone.

    You have never seen Scientology’s secretive compounds like this. Our source says that he complied with local laws when he made these videos, but we have a feeling Scientology will be contacting YouTube to try have these films taken down. So while they’re available, please give them a good look.

    Well, the two links above might be ok for someone with a faster computer, but I could grow a beard waiting for it to load/play or whatever those links do. I simply meant download them with 'DownloadHelper' or 'youtube-dl' or some other app. Never mind.

    I notice on the first video there are people playing on the sports field, but on returning to that field 10 minutes later, the field is empty.


    Weekly rec-time is OVER. :unsure:

    Superb videos!

    I was reminded of videos of newly-discovered tribes in the Amazon who had never seen an airplane before and bravely brandished their spears and bows at it. But alas, not a security guard in sight.

    The old circular running track seemed to be abandoned and grown over. I wonder if the new running track has been carefully disguised as the circular 3-way intersection of pathways ...

    Say what? 11 Gig? I'm talking about the two vids Comm I/C gave links to. I downloaded the first one (using 'youtube-dl'), and that weighed 201,105 KB and I'm assuming the other weighs about the same. What on earth have you downloaded oneone? :biggrin:

    I suspect he downloaded from the following links, which were noted above.

    Well, I'm a bit confused here. I can't see why the size of the same video (webm) should vary according to how you download it. I tried clicking on your link but all I got was a black screen and a revolving circle in the middle indicating that something was 'loading', but after a couple of minutes I gave up on it. If it was 11 gigs I would still be waiting at christmas.

    Anyway, not to worry, I have the vids and thank you for posting the links.

    The Google Drive links in the video descriptions say they are for the "full quality" videos -- which are apparently massive. They were apparently much reduced when uploaded to YouTube to fit within the YouTube file size limitation.

    Aha! Thank you for that. Now things are beginning to make sense. I simply right-click on the youtube vid to get the url and pass that address to 'youtube-dl' and it downloads. Simples! And doing that gives a much more manageable filesize for someone like me with a POS computer.

    If you upload a file to YouTube it gets "processed." If you download the video as soon as it is available for viewing -- even the highest quality available -- it will be smaller, often considerably so.

    As a comparison, note how small a (Google) .webm file is compared to a corresponding .wmv or .mp4 one.

    I downloaded them with the Firefox Plug-In in HD format and got 2 files of about 1 GB each.

    Tell me Udarnik, what is the .suffix to the files you downloaded here that way?

    Yes, recently I uploaded some audio files to a server. These files were originally midi files from which .wav files were created. These .wav files are humungous, but converting them to .mp3 drastically reduces their size without any (to my ears) discernible reduction in sound quality.

    Likewise, the webm video I've just downloaded seems pretty good quality and, as I've already said, it only weighs a little over 200 KB's.

    Now I know what your donations buy: million gallons of water for Gold Base .... every day.

    Then think about liqiudation: who should buy this "insanity in the desert" ?

    I noticed the ship was looking a lot less "shiplike". Maybe someone cognited on the absurdity of a ship in the desert and it's slowly being built over.

    Too bad these vids are all from way up. They should have got "down and dirty" at times, to treetop level, to give us a more detailed view.
