Did everyone see this? http://grumet.net/ptv/add Lucas...this is a whole lot of what we were just talking about last week. this is why our videos need to show up as "enclosures" for a system like this to work. i still need to play with it... but any word from you guys is needed. [View]

hey guys-- check out the new site for ourmedia.org. http://www.ourmedia.org/FAQs.html a free place for storage and bandwidth for our videos seems to be building. JD Lasica has done a great job organizing the ideas. the real work comes when Marc Canter actually starts building it...the technical details. read the FAQ.....JD touches on the whole copyright issue we've discussed here. maybe there'll come a time when no one will worry about using Commercial media...because there will be so much homegrown media to use in our own works. the steam goes around the rock? but this is an important part of what we're doing. when this happens...it'll be a huge door opened up for video to flow onto the web.

So some of you may not know Kenyatta. He does http://unmediated.org I met him when he worked at MNN, the TV station where I work now. Really, what he's asking is....do you mind if we try to create a system so more people can watch your videos? Kenaytta is working on a very cool project that will make this happen very easily. The only issue is one that Steve brought up last month. he also found a clever way solution. If people automatically download videos from your blog with an aggregator, they will only get your video. No text post. So Steve asked, "arent they taking the video without the context of the text post?" yes. So that is why making videos self-contained is important. Steve now does his "this is Steve from Stevegarfield.com". Also I add some text at the beginning and end to let people know from which blog the video... [View]
RSS…you know how to subscribe?
We've been assuming some things lately. Does everyone know how to "subscribe to a feed"? Why its so cool and necessary for creating and keeping track of blogs? For anyone who doesnt, shout out. You can go to places like Bloglines or Feedster to hook it up, free. we can even explain it here. for those of you who do subscribe... what do you use? I use Bloglines..but maybe another one is better? we should all be on the same page. [View]

does RSS suck up bandwdith?
i know these kind of posts are a little techie for some on the list(maybe not), but this stuff is good to learn. we're really in the middle of a lot of development. people are building the foundation for what's to come. Question: do RSS readers use my bandwidth when they check for new feeds? and if i have an enclosure in a post, does it suck up even more bandwidth? [View]
Re: [videoblogging] does RSS suck up bandwdith?

Not enough to be a problem if your feed is not outrageously popular. > > > and if i have an enclosure in a post, does it suck up even more bandwidth? > > Yes. Potentially quite a lot, even at relatively low numbers of > subscribers. can you explain why? does the RSS reader catually download the video each time it checks it? this is a huge problem for videoblogging if true. what are the solutions?

Some of you have emailed me about http://videoblogging.info since you use it to ping your videos. I noticed it also today. The site is temporarily down. Andreas is probably on top of it. He had problems with hackers lately...dont know if its the problem. glad that people missed it. [View]
Re: [videoblogging] INdTV
Kenyatta I think has the right idea. god bless em if they can pull it off. but they are competing in an old-timey model. ill take this opportunity to point you to this project: http://www.ourmedia.org/FAQs.html which I think is more up everyone's alley here. its bascially a big playground. Its all about playing around and being serious. Free storage and bandwidth for your audio/photos/video. You let other people play with your work. (not profit) bascially anyone on the p,anet wirth an internet connection. i think we all have to learn about playing nice withe each other. we've never done this before on this scale. we've spent our lives just watching watching watching...doing our best to get some stuff made. Now the dream is approaching....make and distribute like sending an email. I think its going to be really really really crazy and it's going to take us some time to adjust. breathe. [View]

Its interesting to hear how radio work in Denmark. its amazing what you can do when you have a small, fairly homogenous, and enlightened population. it is important understand that in the US, these media corporations are using public TV/radio airwaves for profit. a lot of profit. (cable and satellite tv is different) the original rules speak of allowing these corporations the use of these public airwaves as long as they serve the community. over time, any debate over what is "the public good' has ceased. NBC/ABC/CBS and Clear Channel Radio run their operations as if they own these airwaves. becasue their lobbyists are so powerful, our representatives continue to deregulate these public properties, as well as loosening the rules of conglomeration. Clear Channel Radio now owns the majoirty of radio stations in the country, playing media that is very very simlilar and has little to do with the region in which its airing. see, Im in a funny position.

Re: [videoblogging] Re: Legality of adding music?
uh oh. this questions has been a can of worms. yes, it is illegal to use something you have not created if it is copyrighted. that is why so mnay of us are for "Creatice Commons" licenses...that let people use the work as long as no one profits from it. however, my personal opinion is that if you are not profiting from your videoblog...use what you want. if someone doesnt like it, theyll let you know. Fair Use does speak of putting things in different context.
