A New Way to YouTube

Posted by Mike Merritt in Videos on

I’m glad that YouTube has finally decided to let people upload multiple videos at once.  That way, you just fill out all the information and go away for a while.  No more coming back to check if one video is done, so you can go on to another.  It works for someone like me, since for the club I’m in, we upload the news packages that we create for the newscast to YouTube, so people can see them when we’re not airing the newscasts.

We always have several packages per week, so it helps to be able to do it all at once, since I have a tendency to forgot about them if a good show is on or something.  So, an hour will pass, in which I could probably have gotten them done, and I’ll only be on the second.

I’m also happy that YouTube has raised the file size limit to 1gb.  Not happy they haven’t changed this for single file uploads, but hopefully they will soon.  Now people will be able to upload videos that come out with better quality in the end.  Still not quite as good as the original, but it’ll be a start.

Overall, I’m happy with the changes.  I, like other people, wished they’d up the file limit, in case I ever attempt to put on a full show again.  Frankly, Google Video makes things a little too anonymous for my liking – nothing is linked to a certain uploader like with YouTube’s channels.  Plus, I don’t want to have to go through two places, though I understand the differences between the two, or at least the perceptions.  Google Video is maybe construed as their more “professional” service, while YouTube is more of a “home video” upload place.  I don’t say they’re right, but maybe that’s Google’s thinking.

Anyway, happy with the changes, but more are needed.
