Atleast im Not Alone…

8 04 2007

So, I was looking through my videos, checking out the # of views and, I noticed the video reply had gotten alot of views since I uploaded it. It turns out, that im not alone… You might have heard of this new one man campaign to get on the front page, its CanYouTubeHearMe?. His name is Brandon, he got so fed up trying to contact the editors at YouTube to get featured that he decided to march down to the YouTube offices and have a talk with the Editorial Team. You can read more in his blog

All though there was an interesting comment…

It’s a deliberate strategy from YouTube. If they only feature quality videos, they might scare ordinary people from putting up videos. And that’s what YouTube want. They want as many videos as possible. Also the crappy (thou cute) dog-video. They don’t really care about the quality, they care abut quantity. Thats how you make money, and that’s the goal here. Remember that. In the end, it’s all about the bottom line (when it come to business).

Now this makes sense. Ive never seen a video from DigitilSoul or Mr.Safety on the Homepage.  And if this where true, it would make some good video makers pretty mad, well I know I would…

My thoughts on YouTube’s Featured Videos

4 04 2007

So… Estrich from the YouTubeNEWS channel made a video asking people about what they thought on videos that get featured on YouTube.

So I made a short video reply…

Now, I don’t know why videos like “excellent beatbox“, “Charles Has A Licking Problem” and the most idiotic stupid video EVER  “Puppy or chicken? You decide.” make it to the front page, I mean some videos that get featured are well deserved of their spotlight, like “Farting in Public” that took some editing skills and some mad cojones for the kid who went around with the fart machine all day. Now this video “Instant Beer Freeze” wasn’t edited, didn’t even requirer skill, but its cool and leaves you saying “How the hell!!!”

All I would really like is for youtube to be more picky about what they let on the frontpage. Not that they aren’t picky enough already,  because all the people asking for their videos to get featured are obviously turned down.

I mean, the editors work for YouTube, so they must know a thing or two about making videos, they must be able to differ a video that was made with a camera phone and one that was made with a camcorder, a video thats fake and real, a video that took hours to edit and one that was uploaded as is.

And before you comment on my blog post or on my video, take a look at the Recently Featured page and tell me if all those videos deserve to be there.

Google’s April Fools Joke

2 04 2007

So google made a cool April Fools joke, Called TiSP and I thought it was so cool that I made a video about it.

There are a couple of other videos on this, ( search link ) Most of them show you how to install the service, but none go full through with the procedure, Thus leaving this as a myth.

YouTube Makes 2 Small Updates…

30 03 2007

Well, I logged on today and saw that there where some little updates…

  • Transparency Levels in Channels

Its pretty nice and it adds a special touch to your channel, they already give you 95% as a default, you can got back to 100% you just have to go back to your settings and set it to 100, but anywhere between 75% to 95% is pretty much visible.

Apart from putting a big image link to their channels page ON the front page, they also changed the view on how you see the user, now you see User Name, Join Date, Views, Subscribers, Style and Latest Video.
