In a room full of people slinging in 2015 - this guy really stood out.

It seems like he is trying, to not move his body and get the best possible precision.

it's just weird.

It's a full sidearm movement - just squeezed into about 3 inches of wrist movement.

Really bloody difficult to replicate as well.

His arm is moving down more than forwards and then he also dips his knees down. Interesting. It's like he transfers downward movement to forward.

I have just realized, that i have been doing this stile sometimes (rarely). I did it, when i did a slinging duel with a friend. It is just strong enough to shoot a tennis ball, but to weak to injure somebody.

I recommend the latter. I have never run into VLC not having a video codec. And you can do other useful things with it, like export movie frames into pictures, etc.
