Re: [videoblogging] so where are we?

Hi Jay, I took a look at your video blog. Why did you decide to make the video post start playing video right away inside the post? This is the first way I started posting videos on my TypePad blog too. I also made it have one post per page. It was easy for me that way. Load the video to my host, then paste in some standard QuickTime HTML and voila, a video blog post. But, I was unhappy with the one page per post format, and didn't like the fact that every single time anyone went to that post, the video would play. It was a pain because sometimes I would click back to my own post and didn't want to see the video, yet another time. ( and use the bandwidth ) That's why I switched to having the video sit on an HTML page of it's own. Even though I have a template HTML page that I use, I'd prefer to have my weblogging tool grab my HTML template and edit the .mov filename. Further, I'd like the tool to be able to upload the new HTML file and my pre-compressed video up to my host via FTP. I worked on a project before where something like this was done with a UNIX command line on the Mac. I bet it would be easy for someone to write up an Applescript to do it. I could probably do it. BTW, in a recent Wall Street Journal article, the writer said that TypePad could store video. I emailed the guy and he told me that yes, TypePad can store video. Has anyone tried that? --Steve http://stevegarfield.blogs.com/videoblog/ On Jun 18, 2004, at 2:04 AM, Jay Dedman wrote: > http://momentshowing.typepad.com/momentshowing/ --------- [ Please Note ] --------- If my email hosting service is rejecting your replies, please give me a phone call.
