There is no shortage of fascinating videos for the Gallery of Fluid Motion at the upcoming meeting of the American Physical Society Fluid Dynamics division.
At least they sound interesting. We’ll never know because they’re practically impossible to download from eCommons library at Cornell University. That’s not good enough.
Surely YouTube (or one of its cousins) would be a better way to display these videos quickly, easily and above all reliably.
By all means place a hi-res version on the eCommons library for whoever has the patience to download it, but spare a thought for the rest of us. Spread the lurv, is all I’m saying. There’s plenty to go round.
Here’s a list of just a few of the interesting-sounding videos on the arXiv. If you’re thinking of downloading any, good luck.
Update: Turns out the videos are already on YouTube (see comments). Doh! (Might have been useful to mention this in the papers.)
