It's not recent, and not youtube, but I found this Micro User show interesting. It isn't very informative, but its more a snapshot of 1985. My goodness - weren't people skinny then!
I'm working on http://bbcmicro.co.uk

Right at the end of that video (about 13:20) you can see John Huddleston, of P.R.E.S. Ltd., in the background with his trademark white shirt and black beard. Shame the video didn't go round all the stands. Noticed a young (goodness weren't we all?) Chris Evans and, of course all the Micro User team . . . I'd have been there on the P.R.E.S./ACP stand.

The Lass O' Gowrie looks familiar in that video. I wonder why? :- ;)

-B-'s avatar (Metal Mickey) just made me say to my wife "Wow... Metal Mickey. I haven't seen that since I was little, I wonder if it was spectacularly crap?"

Anyway, remarkable video indeed (beeb-era, certainly misc):

Reverse emulating the NES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar9WRwCiSr0

Very reminiscent of Pi-CoPro but for the NES - a remarkable achievement!

I made a video about my BBC BASIC port of One Room. The video is "remarkable" only in its badness:

It's the game that's bad, though only for the lack of RAM. And full of bugs? I'm glad the type-in phase of software retail is long dead and buried, especially where normal typists were required to run off those listings.

Intriguing to watch for tips and stuff these days, however.

Thanks to RobC and Anthony Hope I've got a load of new content for the Beeb to review over the coming months. The first of which is the Twisted Brain Demo by Bitshifters which I have recorded at 50fps direct from an Acorn/Phillips CRT. Enable 1080p for the full effect.

Looking forward to it! :D

Meanwhile, here's another shambolic video effort from me (and Lee) -- it's an attempt to demo the Replay utility ROM from Vine Micros:

With sound too, of course.

The Centre for Computing History has put up a few interesting videos related to ARM recently. Here's one that I found quite intriguing: Historic ARM Presentation to Apple Computer - 1992.

A typically excellent new video from ChinnyVision -- this one's all about Kieran and Bitshifters' Master 128 port of Prince of Persia!:

Interesting to learn about the genesis of some of the ARM6's features - thanks for bringing it up!

No problem! It's interesting to know that Apple requested features for either their cancelled ARM-based desktop machine or the Newton: 32-bit mode and big endian support, if I remember the video correctly. So we can thank them for the former and blame them for the latter - they had clearly spent too much time writing code for 680x0 CPUs to know any better. :lol:

Andrew Jenner (aka reenigne) did a great talk at EMF 2018 about his quest to devine the exact cycle timings of the 8088 CPU:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJR3rWZ-FYg

Including building his own hardware to sniff the CPU pins and buses etc. reminiscent of the 6502 protocol decoder.

Acorn RISC PC Launch - 16th April 1994 (Home Video Recording) (via the RISC OS Open forums) - is that really how product launches were done back in the 90s? :shock:

It really is. I was there. (As a rather awkward 17-year-old!)

When I have time to stare at over an hour of low-res video looking for myself, I'll let you know! One problem is that there are several geeky-looking boys with glasses there and I'm not sure whether any of them are me or not!
