Extract a video from an Apple Keynote file

Lego Jobs

The other day, I wanted to extract a video from a Keynote presentation. I have made the video and the keynote file myself, but threw away the screencast that I have put in the keynote file. It is easy to get a picture form a keynote file, control c and controlv are your friend. But you can not copy a video this way.

The solution, easy to do, complicated to find out. You do know that most mac files are in fact "bundles", directories with data and meta data in it? And it is just OSX that is showing you a fancy icon instead of the content? The same is true with keynote files. Complex to find out.

Easy to do:

  1. Find the keynote files "something.key" in your finder
  2. Rename the file from "something.key" to "something.zip"
  3. Right click the something.zip file and extract it, it should make a directory "something"
  4. Doubleclik the directory to find the video file you are looking for, copy it elsewhere
  5. Go one directory higher, delete the folder, rename something.zip to something.key

Oohh apple, why make it so hard?

Steve Jobs Lost Interview 1990 - A must watch for any entreprenuer. And since everyone should be an entrepeneur, for everyone :-)

Steve Jobs is a perfect icon for the the modern entrepreneur. A orphan from middle class America living in Silicon Valley becomes a global icon.

De Stentor.nl en bannerblockers, geen goede combinatie :-)

De nieuwe website van de stentor met bannerblocker links.

Ik weet niet of het express is of niet. Maar de DIV (zeg maar het kadopapier rondom de content) van denieuwe website van de Stentor is zo gekozen, dat banner blockers (links chrome met een default bannerblocker) de content blokken.

Rechts in een default safari zonder bannerblockers. Zie zelf op destentor.nl

Dit is OF heel slim (als je website wilt zien moet je bannerblocker uitzetten / gerconfigureren / site whitelisten) OF heel dom en website bouwer heeft geen bannerblocker :-)

(en ja, ik heb veel tabs open)
