Whenever one of us posts a new video I'll add it to this thread so they'll all be grouped together in one place. Hope these help.

Anthony, what is your regular alg for the case at 3:10? I use either R U2' R' U R U R' U R U' R' or y' R' U R U2 y R U R'. I'm not too fond of either. :/
It depends on EO. If I had to stick to one though, I'd use the alg Sarah suggested. I execute it as Rw' R U Rw U' Rw' U' M'.

Learnt R U' F' r U R' U' r' F, knew the rest in both videos :p
I then found R F' r U R' U' r' F, as I saw the first one was a setup to an OLL. Hopefully I'll learn some more new cases throughout the series.

L'U2RU'R'U2'L is better than L'U2RUR'U2L. (By the way, R'F'RUR'U'R'FR2 is great from another angle.)
and come on, these CLSes please: U'R'D'RUR'DR, U'RU'R'URU2'R'U'RUR'
The last OPF2L case is from my page.

Do I need to make videos to get noticed nowadays?

I use L'U2RU'R'U2L if I happen to recognize the case when it's in the back like that. However, I (and most people) would recognize it with the pair in the front, in which case I'd prefer to do L'U2RUR'U2L rather than a U2 followed by the other alg as it is only very slightly faster (for me, at least). I know, love and use the alg from the other angle that you pointed out, but my intention wasn't to cram as many algs as possible into a single video.

and come on, these CLSes please: U'R'D'RUR'DR, U'RU'R'URU2'R'U'RUR'
I know both of these too, but in the video I decided to mirror the first case for simplicity's sake since I wanted to cater to beginners as well. I feel that (R'FRF')x3 is just as fast as the second alg you posted so I went with that for the same reason.

Is that where I learnt it? Maybe, but I think I saw it floating around the forum. You do have a ton of awesome stuff on your website.

As far as I'm concerned, no. I'm well aware, and grateful, of all the great stuff you've contributed. This was just a video I made to help out Weston's mini-series and hopefully be of use to some cubers.

I know, most of the really fast speedcubers have probably looked into my F2L stuff. I'm just being bitter because decent cubers on these forums keep praising old tricks as new insights when I already put some effort into making a good documentation.
