Apple WWDC 2012 keynote video available in HD on YouTube, iTunes

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Apple on Friday released high-resolution versions of the June 11 WWDC keynote to YouTube and iTunes, wrapping up its week-long conference that ended today.

The nearly two-hour long keynote presentation has been up on Apple's website since Monday and Tuesday for iTunes, but now those interested in watching or downloading an HD version of the special event can do so through and YouTube.

Apple announced a number of new and upcoming products at WWDC like the 15-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro and a flotilla of new iOS features to be included in the next iteration of the mobile operating system. When iOS 6 launches sometime this fall alongside an expected next generation iPhone, it will include new Siri abilities, system-wide Facebook integration and a proprietary maps app, among others.

Also detailed during the keynote were new OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion features like Messages, voice dictation and deeper integration with iCloud. The new Mac operating system is slated to go on sale in July for $19.99.

What? This not only hit iTunes Store as one of their podcasts this past Tuesday but I personally reported it to AI that day because I hadn't yet seen it reported.

All those links took a while to add.

There's no better feeling in this world than being held captivated by an Apple event in stunning HD on Apple TV. Many of the innovations Apple revealed in this episode are truly mind-blowing and revolutionary.

I've already watched the one on Apple's website and the iTunes podcast.

Hopefully THIS is the one where they release the next iPhone's details...

Was that this version? This one is 1.98GB, the first version was 1.2. Anyhoo, downloading now and dumping the smaller file. Didn't buy that new laptop since they didn't make this video available in 5MP haha, but a 2MP res is better than SD. Strange that the smaller version is 640*360

The one I downloaded is the 1080p version with a 9257 kb/s bit rate for a total of 7.56 GB.

Ditto here.

Chewed through about 20GB of hard drive space with just three keynotes.

It was dumb of me to DL the 1080p version. I am only watching it on my 13" MBP. It didn't seem to make the picture any better.

Now that I think of it I'll dump it and go for the lower quality HD version.

Huh, don't you have a new 13" with the 2560x1600 display yet? So last year!

Here is where Tim Cook comes back on stage to sum up the Keynote: 
 
 
The following words might sound like a propaganda to some people...
 
"people choose to come to work at Apple and with Apple to do the best work of their lives… products that empower people to do great things…"  
 
But when I saw Tim say these words: 
 
"can fundamentally change the world… I can't think of a better reason to get up in the morning!!! " 
 
his voice shook a bit, and it sounded • very personal, from the heart •, ala Creed… Then Tim seemed to have caught himself getting too "soft and intimate" and quickly ended it!!! But to me, that • personal • aspect revealed something that I've suspected about Apple, Steve Jobs and hopefully the "Apple Culture" in general:  
 
They are not in it for the money, ego etc as their primary goal… And that's the secret of their success! 
 
In All Things Digital 2012 Interview, Tim Cook said about Jobs something like this:   
 
"he taught me that the journey is it's own reward"…. 
 
To me it looks like Tim Cook and Apple are living that Creed in their daily lives!!! Or at least I'd like to believe that… After replaying that exact spot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Gn4sXgZbBM&feature=player_detailpage#t=6729s and watching every expression on his face when he said: 
 
"I can't think of a better reason to get up in the morning!!! " 
 
several times, and even a few days later, I have not changed my mind! Tim Cook seemed to have bared his soul with those words!
 
As long as Apple thinks like that and not "Different", it'll be fine, and around for a long time, while the pundits opine, and people speculate about AAPL stock….

I usually get up in the morning because I have to take a leak. You can't get to the top of the pyramid until all the needs below are satisfied.

That's odd. Looks like the US gets the HD version first, perhaps Europe later (?). I do have other Apple keynotes in HD, so I am able to download them. But this morning I simply used the link from this article and downloaded a 2GB version. I'll search for this 7GB version tomorrow when I'm behind my desktop again.

Interesting to see this moving and in high-res, and to see just how barren and basic the new maps work. Such a enormous step back from the current Google Solution, and of course, no mention of the removal of Street View, but plenty on the pointless gimmick of Google Earth flyovers.  The turn by turn looked alarmingly basic too - I can't imagine Waze, TomTom, or any other dedicated turn by turn company losing any sleep over it.

As SolipsismX mentioned, there are is a separate 1080p podcast area in addition to the HD and SD podcasts, at least in the US. I also downloaded them on the 12th so this is "old" news.

Does this 1080p version look interlaced to anybody else?

Does anybody know the music used in the MacBook Pro video? As is typical with Apple, it is fresh, a little funky, brilliant, and moving. I really like the uptempo electronic track.

Yeah, but I just assumed it was probably my old 13" MBP with an NVIDIA 320M GPU that was never made to run 1080p content.

Do you have a time during the keynote it started playing? The music during the MBP video at 36m:00s appears to be an original piano score.

1080p makes SUCH a difference when you're using a projector. I see the difference on my 46" HDTV, too, though. Everything is just that much sharper and crystal clear.

I like how Apple operates. They didn't support 1080p for the longest time, but boy, now that they do, since March when they released the 1080p Apple TV 3, now they're REALLY supporting it. iTunes has TONS of 1080p content. Apple clearly always cares about the experience. They don't want to do anything half-as$. Netflix and YouTube, for example, started getting some here but not so much there, and so 1080p content is just starting to trickle down and slowly but surely becoming more commonplace.

Apple, on the other hand, has 1080p for everything they have in 720p now, it seems. It's one extreme or the other. All or nothing. And like the keynote, they're giving us a decent bitrate, too, and yes, an almost 2-hr. event is going to set you back over 7.5GB. Buy a bigger drive if you can't handle it or download it in 720p. All choices are there. Gotta respect that.

Good job! I am more interested in the track that plays during the NYC scene when all of the parts are floating in the air.

I can't find that scene, apparently overlooking this piece; do you have the source and time for me?

At which level do you savour the "… lamentations of Microsoft/Google/Samsung"?

That pyramid is upside down isn't it? You need morality and acceptance of facts *in order to* respect yourself, and make a living, thereby getting food and security.

Someone should make a hierarchy of fanboyism. Or maybe that would look like Mobius Strip. :D
