We will make you famous! Upload your video?
Put me on TV, win 500 dollars, and be awarded the best of the best Blah Blah Blah.
I received my third offer this week; my bullshit meter is going off in high squawking, squeaky annoying sounds. Turn off that noise before I slap you silly.
The GOAL of videos for Andy, my goal, not yours… Use a video to explain better and more accurately what I saw and experience than photos or words.
I by design, and pre-meditated do not edit, cut, try to mix or interpret the videos I make, I try to document what may or may not be important and give it to people to learn and enjoy.
I also want to allow you to download the movie, distribute, show, and view as you wish. I am not selling these videos, I am more or less giving them to you to enjoy with copyrights intact.
I think YouTube.com or other similar services may be working against my goals. I am not sure, it is good to put these videos on YouTube.com, however, it is a plus not a reason for the video. I think I need to upload all these videos to my server, and save, backpack, and protect. I want you to be able to download, which is not the goal of YouTube.com.
I am confused, I do know one thing, and I cannot upload videos to every site that ask me to upload. I am a true traveler, I am very lucky when I get this huge file up one time. I do not know exactly, however, I am going to somehow give permission to others to upload to these services and use. I guess I can put some credits below on the videos so people do not steal.
I think YouTube.com is a nice service, I think in less than 2 years, I will have the same type of video hosting with my own hosting company. I do not think the technology of YouTube.com will be the only player. I believe the future is that every website will allow you to upload videos.
I do not know, I think many companies promise the hard working person some dream of being famous. 1 in a million will have this dream, and it is a dream they are selling us. I think I am going to take this hook out of my mouth.
If a person can watch this, then it becomes extremely complicated to put up on YouTube.com. Analogous sending a PDF file, the majority of people can read it, even when they did not understand why.
I do not believe I will get large amounts of traffic by putting my videos in YouTube.com. I think I will get a traffic on my site by giving videos to my readers to view.
I am not saying YouTube.com is not a nice thing, I am saying it not the best answer for a person who has a webpage.
I can be cynical and say why do I want to make YouTube.com famous, or I can say, how do I get paid for all this work. I keep trying to keep my eye on the goal, the goal is to allow readers to view, with the least amount of headaches.
I had a company ask me to upload this video, as it this small video was great. It was more or less a fun video, and for sure not a great video, therefore I was a concerned about why they wanted me to upload. I did not bite the bait, but some very good bait.
I think this links will work better form my parents on a slow dialup in the farmlands of Indiana.
