How to Wiretap Phone Line with DIY Circuit

Had to reupload! see comments. I like to record my phone calls directly on camera… for research purposes… so I designed some circuit to wiretap the land line directly to my camera audio input. It would be pretty awesome if you support ElectroBOOM at Patreon: My tee-shirts: Viewers giveaway announced. Please see comments.

Smooth. : Holy shit that lamp scared me

Mark Zaikov : I was waiting for something to blow up and then the f*cking lamp happened.

Feyzei : "Why is it that i die a little everytime you call"😂😂😂

Addamcor : Circuit isn't warm...Everything looks goo- *LAMP ATTACK*

justThisFool : One of his personalites must've threw that lamp.

coryman125 : "Never set a bad example" -ElectroBOOM, shortly after licking a live wire :)

Mustafa Ahmed : 4:56 Circuit Designing Intensifies!

Cadwaladr : Phone lines support classics for sure. My 70 year old Western Electric Model 302 phone still works fine. I even made a recording of its bell ringing and use it for the ringtone on my mobile phone.

ok hi : 4:56 when your doing math homework

OHM-968692 : 0:57 I T *H E R T Z*

worm worm : 4:54 Seems im not the only one.

Auridaz : R.I.P Electroboom Got killed by floor lamp Press "F" to pay respects

Kedili Batu : 7:39 MY FRICKING BRAIN CELLS!!!

DAREWIN : Im already a huge fan of the 'Full Bridge Rectifier'

pebble lemon : 7:40 I'm permanently deaf now

Giga Anims : Mehdi=ok so the circuit isnt warm Lamp=IM WARM

Alexandre Peralta : Wait Phone line --> Free electricity?

shanegibby : Very educational and entertaining. Why dont you use Breadboards for your circuits? You could make them faster and with less shocks! lol

G55 : Didnt your city face problems when you almost shorted the line with a capacitor

Cs cc : Youtube best channel i think. I laughed a lot :D

IɴSɪmpʟeTermsJordaɴ : 7:40 the new XXXTENTACION song sounds great

Tejas Bhandare : 7:41 hackerman🤣🤣

James Bennett : 99% of comments: about the lamp 1% other

Kevin Thomas : In this circuit / this country R1 will appear as a loop fault condition if tested from the exchange. The normal conditions looking to line in the UK are: Phone unplugged – 1.8uF in series with 470k, phone plugged in and old-style dial phones 1.8uF in series with the ringer/bell circuit (about 1000 Ohms). Don’t leave it permanently connected.

HyperTC : 0:36 LMFAO 😂😂😂😂

Steets : When the electricity doesn't get him, his light fixtures do.

Na4a4a : The DC voltage from the camera is probably phantom power, for anyone who doesn't know. It's just some voltage to power the electronics of condenser microphones.

Let's Gaming YT : 0:58 Of course eating electric wires hurts.

TWO MYSTERIOUS STARS : Can you ship to India If yes i want one good conditioned multimeter because i prepare for short projects Plz give

Hema Hingorani : When I think everything’s good in this vid God :hold my lamp

Nebosclone Studio : I'm pretty sure you already know that but I'm going to say it anyway: The camera outputs DC voltage, because it was designed to support electret microphones. :)

Joel Robert Justiawan : 4:56 Phone ringing: earape 9:50 ending is lyriced!

manju p : Lamp:omau wou shinderu Electro boom :naniiiii? Lamp post falls on him

Dagestn05 : Put 2-4 HDD motors in ypur bike and drive 100kmh 🤣


Adrian Olarescu : So many scopes in your videos :D Nice work!

Wolf _939 : 7:40 rip headphone users ;-;

Jason T Wynn : The lamp falling was great 👍. Love your content! Keep it up ☝👍

Alex Oja : The DC from the camera is probably to energize some electret microphones?

Danger Dash : 7:40 Dat BASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Cat Man : Boom: pretty harmless voltage *puts in mouth* BAHHHH

Andres Rivera : 7:07 I got scared by the lamp Don't know how it fell on you

Mr.EDM : Damn lamp, jumped out of my skin.

Taterz : i love the seamless blending of actual good advice with the comedy. this man is a genius.

Hope _ Woken : 6:38 to the Translator: "No biggie"

psgamer 000 : 7:00 I'm pretty sure everyone was waiting for something and the lamp happened

Stian Fisk : what can you use phone line electricity for , power lights, computers, charge phones?

pielad pieman? : im wearing that same headset while watching wtf

World of Zero : "Never set a bad example"... ...have you watched any of your other videos?
