Hello, community.

I've made a website for you as a part of my PHP learning process.

Quick Look Crew <---- click this.

EDIT: Now with TNTs. I'm in the process of adding similar shows, like Professional Wednesdays and Unprofessional Fridays, which will all fall under LIVE category.

The pitch

Have you ever wanted to get a list of Quick Looks with just Jeff and Vinny? Or maybe you just want to avoid Brad in a QL, because his voice is too sexy? Or you just can't believe that Vinny did 461 of them.

I have the answer to all questions in a form of this website. Go there and just get and watch all those Drew, Vinny and Dave QLs in one sitting! I know you want to.

It's a website.

There are more options for filtering. You can exclude all QL where there is a combination of people, so if you don't like how Ryan "hates" Brad just choose their names and thick an appropriate checkbox below. The database also have most of the guests that appeared on QLs (QL EX's are not filled with names no one remembers).

You can combine the filters to get all sorts of weird and surprising results.

Many people like to put videos in a playlist of some kind, so there are 3 types supported: YouTube playlist, an HTML5/Flash player on the site with a playlist built-in, and ability to download m3u playlists for use in VLC, Windows Media Player and probably your mobile device, with instant streaming!

Anyway, have fun.

Quick sum up

  • Filter Quick Looks/Live streams by people who are in them
  • Filter Live streams by games being played
  • Find guest appearances of many awesome people, like Brad Muir or Dave Lang
  • Use a text search to find all Sleeping Dogs or Game Room Quick Looks
  • Find the longest Quick Looks ever recorded
  • Create playlists for watching them all in a row

What are you waiting for? Visit this site!

This is fantastic. Being able to filter out and select certain combos/groups is something I've wanted to do since about 2010. Nice job!

P.S. I know it doesn't look great, but it gets the job done. Sorry for the shady looking address, that's only domain I have.

Are you kidding? This is incredible. There's like 139 Jeff & Vinny quicklooks, I'll never be bored again!

Did you go and through every QL and tag which staff members were featured because that's very impressive (and I imagine incredibly time consuming).

All Vinny all the time.

I wonder how many people are going to use this to avoid Patrick

awesome job though!

edit: bug, when searching dave (snides) I pulled up the Wreckateer QL with Dave Lang.

Pretty much, but first I made myself a neat page/script to help me with it, so I cut the time needed to minimum. I think I could do 100 per hour max. Few days spent on just the database, but it wasn't the worst job in the world. I've discovered more Vinny & Jeff QLs so it was worth it.

Fixed, thanks.

This is awesome. Vinny can make any QL amazing and you have lived up to his legendary status.

This is a really neat thing! I'm also curious as to how you managed to get all the metadata assembled. Did you go through by hand and tag them or did you parse the text of the video decks for the names of people in them?

#10 Posted by Krullban (974 posts) -

That's fantastic.

By hand. The decks mostly aren't telling much.

You are my favorite. Will be using for the rest of time...

(or until you stop supporting the page)

#13 Posted by Pr1mus (3512 posts) -

This is the best thing i've seen all day. Granted i haven't done much today but this is still pretty great. Good job!

#14 Edited by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

Oh no. Now I'm going to rewatch every Vinny quick look.... Shit.

There are worst ways to spend your time.

You are the very best sort of person. The very best! ♥

#17 Posted by Kinapuff (244 posts) -

Bookmarked! Thanks mate.

#18 Edited by Pr1mus (3512 posts) -

Oh man this thing is so awesome.

Pro-tip you guys, Vinny + Dave + Drew leads to great things.

#19 Posted by DrStrangepork (118 posts) -

This is great! You are clearly doing the Lord's work, or the Dark Lord's work. Either way, thank you!

Fuck yeah, now I can watch all the ones with Patrick in them!

#23 Edited by lebkin (329 posts) -

This is so absolutely awesome. Well done sir.

As an improvement, it'd be great to have regular Quick Look guest as a search option. It'd be fantastic to easily pull up everything Brad Muir has been on.

#24 Posted by Ben_H (3199 posts) -

You are a gentleman and a scholar, sir.

So many hours of Vinny, so little time.

#25 Posted by animathias (1076 posts) -

Wow, that's fantastic. Awesome work, duder!

#26 Edited by Butler (376 posts) -

Where's Matt Rorie?

But on a side note: Thank you for all the Vinnies.

#27 Edited by Bishna (334 posts) -

Awesome, I love a good drew quick look from time to time. Quick and easy to use, love it.

#28 Posted by Kurtdyoung (1289 posts) -

This is tits.

#29 Posted by Mrsignerman44 (1100 posts) -

This is the greatest thing I have ever seen on this site. My hat's off to you sir.

#30 Edited by mrfluke (4834 posts) -

#32 Posted by Ezakael (864 posts) -

Bookmarked this for sure. I've been wanting a way to do this for a while so I thank you!

#33 Edited by Icemael (6269 posts) -

Amazing. Giant Bomb's engineering team should hire you.

To do that all you had to do was click on 'quicklook' under the 'videos' tab

Pretty much every video that shows up has him in it

the last 10 QL's, he's been in 3

back in my day, 30% did not equal "pretty much every"

@somedelicook: It's telling that you had to explain your own joke.

Also, this is pretty cool. Sound tedious making it, but thanks bro.

#38 Posted by Chop (1962 posts) -

Major, major props!

Seriously, this is amazing. I love you.

#39 Posted by Dethfish (3586 posts) -

This is great. It's useful for looking at Quick Look teams stats too. Did you know there have been 22 QLs with just Vinny, Jeff and Ryan? One of my personal favorites of those is the Pac-Man Party QL.

#41 Posted by CoruptAI125 (72 posts) -

This made my day, week, month, and possibly year.

#42 Posted by ripelivejam (2770 posts) -

hey guys.

vinny's not that great.

@hockeymask27: also quit acting surprised that he's in content, on the site that he works on.

he's in most of the videos anyway.

#44 Edited by ThePhantomStranger (353 posts) -

Oh man this fantastic.

How do you imagine you'll support this in the long run though? I don't imagine anyone wants you to keep tagging incoming quick looks for the rest of your life...

#45 Posted by Enigma777 (6047 posts) -

Fantastic. Bookmarked!

#46 Edited by Nilazz (606 posts) -

Time to make the ultimate ' Brad Pulling a Brad ' montage!

#47 Posted by altairre (997 posts) -

Outstanding. I love this site.

Oh man this fantastic.

Well then we have to MAKE him do it. Locked up with only one purpose: tagging quick looks until he or the site crumbles into dust...

What were we talking about again?

This is great, nice work!

Hey, would you mind sharing the Javascript code? I'm learning to program in Java and I'd like to see how the language works with PHP and websites. This is awesome by the way and should be incorporated into this site somehow.

Thanks duder!
