Video posting is hot! Well there are loads of new and old video platforms, that can host your videos.
I am currently playing around with Viddler. Now, what I really like , so far, is my ability to create a video using my webcam directly to the Viddler site.
Now, this is really cool when you have a quick idea and want to record it right away. You can use this feature for your coaching clients, family or just to jumpstart your memory.
They also have a quick and easy way to embed video into a WordPress.com blog. That’s right you heard me correctly. Give it a try, click on a video, then where you see the option to embed click on WordPress.com and pop the code into your site.
Note that the site is constantly updating which is a good thing. It appears, only from my experiance, that they prefer .wmv formats. But I may have been doing something wrong. I contacted them to make a report because they state that they accept the following file formats.
avi .dv .mov .qt .mpg .mpg2 .mpeg2 .mpeg4 .mp4 .3gp .3g2 .asf .wmv .flv.
They are on Twitter, but did not start to follow yet. You might want to research that a bit and catch up with them.
Right now, the limit is 500 MB (no length limit) per video, and there is no limit to the total number of videos uploaded.
Meanwhile run on over to Rosies Boomer Review and you will see a video I just did. But please be careful to do them when you aren’t too tired. The video quality has nothing to do with the site but everything to do with my camera and lighting.
Viddler is open to suggestions about features and ideas. So give them a try. I would love to see video tutorials on using their site to the max!
Please share your experiances with them if you have any.
I’ve been bitten by the video bug thanks to my recent participation in jvAlert! Looking at all the options and hadn’t heard of this one yet. Trust Rosie to know all about it. Checking it out! Thanks, Rosie!
WOW, Rosie, you never cease to amaze me! You constantly come up with new and innovative ideas to make my blogging better. Imbedding videos is something I intend to do at some point and I’ll turn to you for all the latest. Thanks!
Thanks for the comment Eileen and Melodieann. Glad it helps. As I learn just want to share it cause it helps me also, you know it’s a boomer thing. (Smile)
