Download from Yahoo!
Update 2014/05/18: Yahoo! has switch to a new design for their movie pages. The underlying download mechanism hasn’t changed. Once you find the content_id (sometimes called the media_id), you’ll just need to follow the instructions below. I’ll try and find sometime later this week to update this tutorial. Update 2013/04/06: Finally found time to explain how to download using their new system. Do be warned though, the instructions can get rather complicated and is not for the weak-minded. Update 2012/12/23: Yahoo! has once again changed their API and the way to get the direct download URL this time is a lot more complicated. Hopefully I will find some time to update this tutorial shortly. Update 2012/01/21: Yahoo! has revamped their site and I’ve generated a quick tutorial on how to download HD trailers using their new site. The instructions are a bit rough, so if you need clarification, please feel free to ask in the comments area. This tutorial was meant to teach you how to download HD Trailers from Yahoo! Movies.

Where to find the trailers:
Yahoo! no longer has a dedicated page for HD trailers and they don’t easily distinguish which videos have HD and which don’t. You can visit their movie trailers page or find the movie you want and click on the Trailers tab.

What to do once you’ve picked a trailer:
Once you’ve picked a trailer, you’ll have to make sure you have a ‘video’ URL and not a ‘trailers’ URL. For example, the latest Carrie trailer can be found either on http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/carrie-2013/trailers/carrie-trailer-2-231012436.html OR http://movies.yahoo.com/video/carrie-trailer-2-231012436.html. You’ll want to make sure your URL looks like the latter by replacing movie/carrie-2013/trailers with video. Update 2013/04/15: It has come to my attention that URLs that have ymovies-6393699 will not work with these instructions.…...

Yahoo!

...The biggest problem that Yahoo faces right now is that they share too little of the market in too few fields, unlike other company such as Apple and Google. Apple and Google both dominate the smartphone industry, while Yahoo “neither controls an operating system nor makes popular hardware devices”(Stone, 2013). They used to be used as a sort of homepage portal to various different aspects of web browsing, but did not adapt to the rapidly growing mobile industry. I agree with author’s argument. Nowadays almost everyone has a mobile phone; the mobile market is huge. Mayer wants to transform Yahoo towards a media company for the mobile age, she wants Yahoo to be more like a product and push it into the world not only just a website. Developing mobile technology is important to Yahoo. Mayer renovated her team’s workspace to make the worker’s to have a better working space to work at. If you want your worker to work efficiency, you need to let them love the work and the place they work at. Mayer also pushes the engineers to move faster and think bigger not only focus on a small space. “She has made it an attractive place for top talent to work, and she has begun to release products that engage consumers on a daily basis.” (Stone, 2013) 3) Possible Solutions 1) Lack of new direction. I think Yahoo needs to cooperate with other companies that have popular hardware devices. Since Yahoo does not produce hardware nor own an operating system, working with other...

Google and Yahoo

...The Ties Between Two Search Engines Katie Trevino Now that we have looked at the financial ratios of both companies we will take a look into the history of Google and Yahoo we will see where the two companies became the top search engines. We will also see where the two companies are very similar and where they are complete opposites. Both companies will stand out in two different ways. The report will show a company that shows potential growth, while the other shows issues and different path for their business. In the history aspect of our decision, we want to remind you that it may be completely different from what is found in the financial analysis. The background information on what is happening behind closed doors may be very useful. The beginning of Google started in 1995 with Sergey Brin, 21, giving Larry Page, 22, a tour of the Michigan University campus. A year later BackRub was started as a search engine running on Stanford servers but shortly became over powering. In 1997, BackRub was changed to Google. Brin and Page wanted to name their company that would be based off the word “Googol”. Googol is a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. (Google) This was their motto word to show their goal of having on going information available on the web. Google became a company on September 27, 1998 shortly after receiving a $100,000 check from Andy Bechtolsheim. (Google) Brin and Page used this money to......

Yahoo Case

...two engineers and their lack of financial resources. Further down the horizon is market pressure and competition from existing access providers developing their own search technology and improved advances in automated indexing, categorizing and ranking of websites as developed by Google. The first two biggest immediate risks can be mitigated by accepting the Sequoia Capital offer from Michael Moritz. Sequoia Capital’s offer not only provides Yang and Filo the financial resources they need, but the business knowledge and resources to “assemble a top management team”. While they give up some equity in the Sequoia Capital option, Yahoo! would still be their own company, whereas in a merger option, they would essentially be cashing out and losing ownership of their company and technology. Accepting corporate sponsorship would potentially “taint Yahoo!’s image” and brand while not providing the necessary business knowledge and support to successfully launch the company. It is unnecessary to introduce this kind of risk at such an early stage for less return than the Sequoia Capital option. Although waiting for another venture capital company deal requiring less than 25% equity exchange is an option, it is more risky. There is not another firm offer on the table and the longer the two founders wait, the more opportunity they give other competitors to develop similar or better web search technology. The final option of selling to an existing access provider interested in utilizing...

Yahoo! Failure

...The Failure of Yahoo! LACK OF PRODUCT LEADERSHIP → Introduction ‘From Yahoo!'s founding, the company has had its fingers in a lot of pies. Through Bubble 1.0 and Bubble 2.0, the Yahoo! machine was always humming to suck up venture-backed firms at healthy valuations. Integrating them cohesively was a different story and left a string of disparate businesses under the Yahoo! roof. Yahoo! has seen a deep corrosion of its core business over the past few years. To make matters worse, the boon in market share that Google has enjoyed seems to have been cut directly from Yahoo's market share. As compared with MSN/Live, Ask, and AOL, these companies have seen small gains or remained fixed for the most part. → Main Issue (Lack of product leadership) & Analysis Yahoo has seen numerous problems with its products and the management of its products. Instead of focusing on the search engine aspect, Yahoo! has been dipping its toes into other not as profitable side businesses. Some failed business ventures include Yahoo! 360°, Yahoo! Tech, Yahoo! Mash, Yahoo! Photos, Yahoo! Geocities, and Yahoo! Auctions. These services have, thus far, offered little value to Yahoo!. The company has spent its time and resources maintaining services with a huge, financially unjustified overhead; all the while, its search market share continues to dwindle. In contrast, Google, realizing its product line was stretched too thin, has spent the past 2 years aggressively vertically integrating......

Yahoo Problem Statement

...1. An Internet security firm has discovered a major alleged malware infection on Yahoo. Over 300,000 users of the website have already been exposed to this malware and there will be more users exposed. This is occurring when users click on ads posted on Yahoo. The ad will automatically download the malware onto users computers. In the past three months users have been highly affected by this virus. Malware is designed specifically to interrupt a user’s normal computer operation, gain access to other private computers on a network or gather sensitive information on an infected machine. Yahoo needs to notify users on how to turn off the Java in users browsers, which can prevent the download from happening. Also, Yahoo needs to do a better job at monitoring their ads and make sure they do not contain viruses when clicked. Yahoo users are being affected by viruses automatically downloading after clicking on ads posted on the website. Users need to be aware of this and take corrective actions such as turn off Java or download an anti-virus system. Yahoo also needs to monitor ads posted on their website more efficiently. 2. The education system has changed a lot in the past couple of decades. Students are not reading at grade level by grade 3. Without good information about where our kids are starting, we have no way of knowing if our goals may be unattainable for some of them. This needs to be fixed before they graduate. Teachers don’t get sufficient training and support......

Yahoo Case

...>cases Yahoo Consumer Direct Marries Purchase Metrics to Banner Ads >Abstract As little as two years ago, many advertising pundits were bemoaning the inevitable demise of the banner ad on the Internet. But maybe they were too quick to judge. This case reveals how Yahoo!, in combination with ACNielsen’s Homescan®, has developed a methodology (Consumer Direct) to evaluate the true effectiveness of banner ads, from ad exposure to shopping cart. It also reveals the role Dynamic Logic played in conducting postexposure ad evaluation. www.yahoo.com; www.acnielsen.com; www.dynamiclogic.com >The Scenario If you are a product manager for a consumer-packaged-goods (CPG) company—for example, you manufacture toilet paper, or soup, or boxed dinners, or bar soap—a large portion of your advertising budget is going into television. “CPG companies have large marketing budgets and, understandably, have been extra careful in their move toward Internet advertising,” shares Ken Mallon, Yahoo’s director, insights products.1 “The thinking is that no one goes online to search out information on paper towels. But that doesn’t mean that Internet ads can’t significantly lift in-store sales.” With Internet consumption on the rise,2 and all other media facing declining consumption as a result,3 new metrics that showcase Internet ads’ targeting efficiency and sales responsiveness were needed. Product managers were facing increasing pressure for strong ROI metrics for media buys, yet they were......

Yahoo Inc

...Introduction: Yahoo Inc. in the last three months has been in the news, and the news has not been about investment in research and development (R&D), new products introduction and shareholders’ value creation strategy. On November 24, 2015, Standard and Poor’s (S&P), a credit-rating firm announced the cutting of Yahoo rating outlook to negative (BB+) from stable citing the decline in revenue growth and higher cost of attracting traffic to its website (CNBC, November 24, 2015). The rate cut will increase the cost of capital, reduce profit and reduce shareholders wealth. On November 9, 2015, Reuter’s News reported the hiring of the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. The focus of the consulting firm was to assist with the reorganization of the company’s core business (Reuters, November 9, 2015). The decision was a surprise development to the shareholders in that the current management under the leadership of Ms. Marissa Meyer had been at the helms of Yahoo affairs for almost four years and had spent about $7 billion on R&D, Merger and Acquisition. The turnaround initiatives expected with Ms. Meyer’s appointment as the Chief Executive Officer has not come into being, for there has been a high turnover of senior executives. The board of directors and senior management has failed in their attempts to turn around the firm. Yahoo share price has declined year to date by 34% as of November 25, 2015, whereas its’ main competitors Facebook, Goggle, and......

Strategic Management of Yahoo

...Strategic Management_Assesment01_Melgie Nebiar 701476_Ma. Janine So 701337_Rhea Lyn Haro 701495_2016BusT1L7B The evolution of strategy planned at Yahoo and their response to unforeseen events happening in its external and internal environments. The evolution of strategic planning of Yahoo was base on the improvement in their basic character and structures, educating the users in the internet world which is “Gerry’s Guide to the world wide web” which later on called yahoo and analyzing the competitive environment through over-viewing the industry’s demand with the use of internet economic features. (thompson, 2003) The strategy begins when the founders of the yahoo Jerry Yang and David Filo accidentally created one of the world’s first web directories that enable to help the web users on finding things in the web (1994). Hypothetically it was an era of computers, expecting a lot of new users such as business related companies etc. and also involving curios individual to access the net world, later on, their directories called Yahoo stand for “yet another hierarchical officious oracle” (http:/www.yahoo.com). Yahoo was drawing over 100,000 people a day that made to come with up with the new strategy making Yahoo into a business, the business model was derived revenues from renting advertising space on the pages of the fast growing directory.

Yahoo

...Problema principal Problemas específicos * La compañía se enfrentaba a una disyuntiva: cooperar con un régimen político represivo como lo es el gobierno chino, mediante el flujo de información de consumidores que atentan contra los derechos fundamentales básicos de los mismos o dejar de lado la cooperación para garantizar el mínimo daño a los consumidores, siguiendo un esquema ético de hacer negocios en países “offshore”. * Una empresa multinacional de imagen global como Yahoo, debe proponer prácticas competitivas y eficientes en un país externo que promuevan la mejor calidad de vida de los ciudadanos, poniendo en práctica políticas éticas y valores intrínsecos. Proponer un argumento legal como defensa de solo “cumplir” la ley como obligación, deja en constancia la falta de interés en reconocer y proteger los derechos humanos fundamentales. * La compañía ingresa al mercado con la intención de promover actos democráticos, pero al tener una cooperación directa con el gobierno sin mitigar o minimizar esta relación, al por ejemplo, dañar los derechos fundamentales básicos de ciudadanos chinos, está únicamente incentivando a resistirse a una reforma y mantener el autoritarismo. * Las acciones que fueron tomadas por la compañía, al revelar información privada, determinan esa falta de libertad expresiva política y social que ellos mismos promovían al tener presencia en el mercado chino. * Es importante determinar los pros y contras de hacer negocios en un país......
