In 5 minutes the answer to your most pressing questions

5min is a site that I became aware of through a TechCrunch post, and I find it interesting for a number of reasons. Calling itself the first communal Life Videopedia, 5min is user generated instructional video content. The site developers believe "any solution can be visually explained in no more than 5 minutes" and members are encouraged to upload their videos on any number of topics from tech to food, how to score a free beer to belly dancing, it's all covered. What sets this site apart from other user generated video sites, like YouTube, is that it is purely instructional... no skateboarding dogs here unless it's a how to teach your dog to skateboard, but I didn't find that one. The embedded player is also very unique, it has a lot of really useful functionality. The smart player allows you to play the video in slow motion, advance frame by frame, zoom in on content, display subtitles in a variety of languages, and view the content in storyboard format.

Here is a how to install PC memory clip. As always with user generated content you have to be careful who's advise you choose to listen to.
