Announcing the Buizel.Net URL Shortening Service!
Posted by Cat333Pokémon on April 1, 2014 at 12:47 AM
After many years, my old domain, Buizel.Net, has returned as a URL shortening service, much in the same vein as services like TinyURL and Bitly. What sets mine apart is the unique ability to preview the contents of the site without needing to visit it, saving you the trouble of loading massive pages only to be greeted with a small image or with a long advertisement before a video. The service scans the linked page for prominent media files and proxies them directly to you for speedy access. I've also added it atop the forum for the time being to get folks to try it out. :)
I cannot guarantee that the service always works properly, of course, and there's always a chance for something to go wrong. At the moment, an HTML5-compatible browser with MPEG-4/H.264 and MP3 capabilities is required to enjoy most features of the service.
Check out its ability to work with YouTube videos (be sure to watch it all the way through):
Reply with your best links created through the service! I'd love to hear your feedback. :D
