> is it becasue so few servers support them? Not servers, the blogging systems. None of them support enclosures out of the box yet (except maybe Radio?). > how do the audio people throw around enclosures so easily? There are plugins out there to add this functionality - like the MTEnclosures plugin I use with MovableType. But, the way it's implemented is sloppy. Basically, every media element you link to is included in the RSS feed as an enclosure. This does the job of adding your podcasts/videoblogs to the feed, but it doesn't solve the problem of differentiating between the media elements you WANT to spread via RSS. How does this lead to problems? Well, let's say I like your latest videoblog and I link to it from my site. If a person is subscribed to both of our feeds, they've just downloaded your video twice. Oops! That's costly bandwidth. And, it just doesn't make sense. Things are getting better, though. For example, the MTEnclosures plugin can now differentiate between internal and external (i.e. not hosted on your site) elements. > my iPod is filled with audio posts that were automatically placed on > my iPod very beautifully. Yes, and if you had a video player equivalent to the iPod, you could pretty much do the same thing with videoblogs. We're past that stage. Now it's time to create a system that allows users to tag SPECIFIC elements as enclosures,... [View]



Re: [videoblogging] Tech talk – was: no video iPod?

> i like the tech talk. > what does everyone else think? I like it too, for the most part, but I'd like to see the discussion more balanced. I want to hear more from the people who are producing original video. We can talk tech until we're blue in the face, but I think it's easy to get caught up in that and ignore the larger picture. After all, nobody is going want to subscribe to our feeds unless we can deliver quality content. Also, I think we have to be careful not to turn people off, especially new members. The videoblogging process is daunting enough as it is. -Rick [View]

> we once talked about this a while ago.... > should we split the group into DEVELOPMENT(videoblogging) and > EVERYTHING ELSE(videoblogging)? If a division does happen, I think we need to be careful how to distinguish between the groups. After all, this thing we talk about -- videoblogging -- is a very technical thing. There's a fine line between a "development" issue and a "general" issue. Topics like production, non-linear editing, storage, encoding... these are all issues at the forefront of the videoblogging process. I don't want people to miss out on those discussions, because they are put off by technical talk about RSS feeds, enclosures, etc. Because most of the recent tech talk is focused on one particular area -- the development of distribution/syndication technologies -- why not just create a new group focused specifically on that topic? This really wouldn't create a huge divide in the community, but it would allow those developers to do their thing without turning people off. -Rick [View]

Anybody here from the Los Angeles area? I'm moving there in one week. If there are enough of us, maybe we could arrange a meet-up. I have this picture in my head of a group of us sitting around, all recording the meeting, and then going home to edit the footage in our own unique way. This could be a good way to get more people involved, too. I know there are a lot of videographers in the LA area looking for an outlet. -- Rick Rey rick@...

> ah, but the best model for what a videoblog is is not tv shows but the > commercial. which are typically 30 seconds to 2 minutes :-) I disagree. It might be best for you, but why dictate how other people should express themselves, how other people should blog with video? Is it that important that we separate ourselves with television (a medium that has already gained mass acceptance). For the time being, shouldn't we just be happy that more people are doing this, period? Adrian, you are an academic, right? I went to grad school myself, and I would never get away with making a blanket statement like such-and-such is the best course of action -- without any research/empirical evidence to back it up. You are making a hypothesis. For the sake of argument, I can just as easily make a hypothesis that the best model for us *is* television -- since we know it works. Once we get off the ground, get people on board, get people to notice us -- then we can begin to distinguish ourselves. There's no set agenda here. We're not on autopilot. We need to experiment with different things before we tell people what's right and what's wrong. Is RocketBoom "different" than TV? Who cares! It's a blog with video. It meets criteria for this group. Let's not get caught up in the terminology. At this state in the game, bickering over... [View]

I'm developing a new vlog and I'm leaning towards a popup comment window instead of embedding them on the permalink. It seems less disruptive to me... especially for those people (like me) who like to comment DURING the video. What's the consensus around here? -Rick Rey [View]
