4 Video Hosting Platforms to Enhance Marketing Strategy – vía @kuno


There is no doubt the use of online video is rising. With amount of people uploading and sharing at an all-time high, there is no reason not to start using online video. So then the question becomes where will you put these videos you create?

Videos are large files, so you are going to need a service that not only provides you the room to upload, but also provides a large amount of bandwidth. Obviously, you want to use a platform that helps build your brand. And finally, you will need a service that reports back to you on how your videos are performing.

Here is a short list of video hosting services that can help you get started with video marketing.

YouTube

We have all heard of and use YouTube—some probably on a daily basis. YouTube is a useful and, most importantly, free service to host your videos. As Barb said yesterday, YouTube has many facets for businesses to take advantage of for online hosting. YouTube allows you to advertise your videos, build your brand and even track their performance with YouTube and Google Analytics.

Vimeo

Vimeo is a hosting service created back in 2004 by a group of filmmakers looking to share their videos. It started out as a website that allowed people to connect and share their visual content, but has now grown into much more. Vimeo remains a place to follow, connect and explore the vast array of content it hosts, but the platform is being geared more toward businesses now.

Vidyard

As Vidyard says themselves, the system was built for marketers. It is a simple system and allows you to sign up for a free 14-day trial of the entire system before you have to pay. This helps you see what it has to offer and decide if it works for you. Much like Wistia, Vidyard allows you to customize your player and thumbnail to help drive viewers. Where Vidyard excels is its integration and analytics.

Introducing Video Slides – thnxz @labnol


With Video Slides, you can quickly create a beautiful slideshow from one or more videos pulled from Youtube and Vimeo. Just past the raw video URLs in any format and the tool will bundle them into a presentation.

There’s a pretty interesting thread on Hacker News where people have shared links to their favorite technical talks. The thread includes dozens of links pointing to YouTube, Vimeo and other video websites.

It’s a treasure trove and I want to click on every single video that’s mentioned on that page but the problem is that I will then end up having at least two dozen new tabs in the browser. And this isn’t just about Hacker News, you can open any popular thread on sites like Quora or Reddit and you’ll be overwhelmed with links pointing to interesting stuff.

How do you deal with such a large collection of raw links? I have written an app called Video Slides that some may find handy here. The app will scan the text for video URLs and put them all in a single slideshow without cluttering your browser.

Here’s a quick video demo.

Robótica y ciencia: adiós a las sillas de ruedas. Mirá el video


 | http://andresferraro.com.ar

Un invento que muestra hasta dónde llega la robótica y la máxima tecnologia, aplicada a la vida de todos los dias.

Por ejemplo, para personas cuadrapléjicas o sin movilidad en sus piernas.

El elemento, presentado en Turquia, ayudará positivamente a aquellos que necesiten usar una silla de ruedas por el resto de sus vidas.

Esta vez, el aparato permite que la persona que lo utiliza viaje erguido y se ve mucho mas funcional, incluso para subirse o bajarse sin asistencia . Lo cuentan, a través de la historia de este joven de 28 años.   Impresionante. [Mirá el video] Continuar leyendo «Robótica y ciencia: adiós a las sillas de ruedas. Mirá el video»

El dibujo, nueva herramienta empresarial

Una vez el público ya preparado, para empezar, ejercicios sencillos, dibujar formas básicas para “soltar la muñeca”.En todo momento la distribución de la sala agrupaba el público en grupos de cuatro y al finalizar cada ejercicio los asistentes debían cambiar de sitio. Des este modo se potenció la conexión y relación entre las personas asistentes. En el último ejercicio se planteaba que resolvieran un reto: “¿Para qué sirve el dibujo?” a través del Visual Thinking.


http://www.esadecreapolisblog.com

¡Más de 130 personas experimentando con el poder del dibujo! Como ya comentamos, el jueves 16 de febrero ESADECREAPOLIS acogió la primera edición del formato Design Thinking Evenings. Para esta ocasión: Draw, Connect & Get Results. Pero aparte de dibujar, conectar y obtener resultados el objetivo principal era pasarlo bien. Aprendimos como utilizar el poder del dibujo para expresar con imágenes aquello que tenemos en la mente y como nos puede ayudar a resolver problemas, plantear retos desde otro punto de vista y a comunicarnos mejor.

A continuación, podéis ver un resumen del taller:

Draw, Connect & Get Results – Design Thinking Evenings from ESADECREAPOLIS on Vimeo.

Connecting Brains, (Montse Marsal y Alexandra Etel Rodríguez) experimentadas facilitadoras, nos guiaron durante todo el evento. Además, los asistentes recibieron al llegar un obsequio de MiquelRius: la última libreta de su colección que incorpora una pizarra extraíble, ideal para este tipo de dinámicas.

5 video-sharing alternatives to YouTube

There’s absolutely no doubt that the rise and popularity of online video sharing is changing the way brands and individuals market, advertise and sell. If your company hasn’t already jumped into the fray with a video (or 10), you’re missing out on amassive market. If you’ve scripted, created, edited, and uploaded, it’s fairly shortsighted to “YouTube it” and forget it, as there are a number of other video hosting options available.

Believe it or not, YouTube is not the be all/end all when it comes to online video sharing. Sure, they have the world’s largest share of the market, and should be included in your upload and sharing strategy, but by jumping into the biggest pool on the planet, you’re also running the risk of being swallowed up in all the noise. Last year this time, we gave you 6 Awesome Alternatives to YouTube and now we’re giving you 5 more YouTube-alternative video sharing sites that you and your brand might want to consider.

Vimeo

An active and vibrant community, Vimeo’s smooth-as-silk interface just feels a bit more user friendly than the cold sterility we’ve come to expect from Google products. A platform pulling down some serious traffic, as Vimeo has grown they’ve still managed to retain that “we’re all in this together” community feeling. I’ve personally had far more interactions with viewers and converted clients on Vimeo than I’ve ever had on YouTube.

Vimeo’s free account allows users to upload one HD video a week, more than most individuals will ever have a need (or budget) for, and you receive basic controls when it comes to the video player. Embedding options are limited to SD, but if you step things up to the Plus account for $59.99/yr. you’re granted a 5GB/week file size limit, priority uploading and processing, and HD embedding.

If you’re planning on using Vimeo as your main hosting platform of choice for your business, they’re pretty clear when it comes to the “non-commercial use” language for free accounts. On the upside, for a low $199/yr., the Vimeo Pro service offers just about every option under the sun, and you’ll never have to worry about tablet compatibility as all flavors of Vimeo are offered in HTML5 format with Flash as a fallback.

Flickr

flickr 5 video sharing alternatives to YouTubeFlickr. It’s not just for still images. A seriously under represented offering from Flickr’s side, as there’s no mention of the service anywhere on the main landing page, Flickr does, in fact, offer and provide video hosting.

A free Flickr account allows for 2 uploads a months with restrictions of 90 seconds max, and 150MB per video. Probably enough for most small businesses, but if you want to go for the HD experience, you’ll need to step it up to a Flickr Pro account.

Perhaps the best bang-for-your-video/photo-buck on the Internet today, for as low as $25/year, if you make Flickr your video hosting platform of choice, you’ll be privy to not only an unlimited number of photos, but an unlimited number of video uploads, bandwidth, and storage. The downside? Even with the pro account Flickr limits your video length to 90 seconds. Having said that, unless you’re producing a full length feature, you shouldn’t really be stretching your message beyond this point anyway. Continuar leyendo «5 video-sharing alternatives to YouTube»

The rise of visual journalism – Why infographic thinking is not a fad


by @gordonmacmillan  |  http://wallblog.co.uk

-.-

Interesting video interview here with designer Francesco Franchi, from Italy’s Intelligence in Lifestyle magazine, who talks about “infographic thinking” and “visual” journalism”.

Franchi says that “visual” journalism” combines the graphic and narrative, which he describes as a “representation and an intereptation of reality to develop an idea”.

It is timely contribution to the infograpic and data journalism debate.  What Franchi says is that these can often lack “infographic thinking” or to put another way a full expression of the idea that that the graphics claim to represent.

Intelligence in Lifestyle is the monthly magazine of Italian financial newspaperIl Sole 24 ORE. Continuar leyendo «The rise of visual journalism – Why infographic thinking is not a fad»

Twitter’s Extreme Makeover — Can it Win Back Users from Third-Party Services?

Yesterday, Twitter introduced their new look to the world and has begun rolling it out to all users on their platform. Twitter.com has truly been made-over, with a brand new interface featuring a sleeker design, more prominent media content, related tweets and mini profiles.

Here’s a summary of the changes that were highlighted by Twitter (for the full video by Twitter, scroll to the end of the post):

* Design – The Twitter stream will now appear on the left side of the page. On the right side, what used to be the smaller right-hand column has now expanded into a dashboard-like panel that contains more information on features such as Followers/Following, Who to Follow, Trending Topics, etc. Besides these larger changes, there have been small design tweaks such as tabs to organize your lists and streams, a hidden “Tweet” button, and clearer re-tweet labels.

Twitter’s New Mini Platform: The Right-Side Pane

While the new design of Twitter.com itself is big news, just as big is what it means for the Twitter ecosystem. I’m not talking about the third-party clients that have similar features to the ones Twitter just rolled out, but rather the partners that Twitter is (or is not) working with to bring more content directly into their environment.

Specifically, I’m talking about Twitter’s initial 16 partners: Dailybooth, DeviantArt, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, Twitvid, USTREAM, Vimeo, Yfrog, and YouTube. Each of these services now has content which can be viewed directly from Twitter.com — potentially taking pageviews away each of them. Why on Earth would they agree to that?

Some of those companies have already given their diplomatic answers — that this way will be better for the end users. That’s undoubtedly true, but many of those sites rely on the advertisements th

Some of those companies have already given their diplomatic answers — that this way will be better for the end users.

Video Contests: Best Practices and New Tools

The Ad Council and Google DC recently held its latest Seminar Series briefing, Online Contests: A New Way to Raise Awareness and Engage Audiences! The content was pretty 101 for anyone who’s been a Facebook Page administrator but several panelists and attendees offered great tips for video contests; I’ve compiled them below with attribution.

Tips: YouTube Tools
From: Ramya Raghavan, YouTube

* YouTube’s Moderator tool helps you moderate dialogue and organize your videos and response videos together.
* YouTube Direct allows visitors to your website to enter a contest or upload their videos to your YouTube page without ever leaving your site, pretty nifty.
* YouTube contest modules will run you about $50-100 k but simplify the process a lot and you can find out more by contacting their sales department.
* Advertising on http://www.studentfilmmakers.com/ or http://www.onlinevideocontests.com/ can bring interested talent to your contest and cost less that $50.

11 Ways to Speed Up WordPress

Cyrus Patten is the editor of Pingable.org, a blog about everything WordPress. He specializes in the role of technology in community organizing.

WordPress (WordPress) is inherently fast, and that’s why so many professional bloggers call it their choice platform.

Like many new bloggers, I used to think that until I had enough traffic to make a difference, I’d worry about the bandwidth and site speed later. But that’s not thinking ahead considering that today social media can drive an overwhelming amount of traffic in a very short period of time; you don’t want to get caught with a crashed site.

When you’re not prepared for lots of traffic, it’s common for a web host to suspend your account temporarily, and that’s something you don’t want. If your writing is decent and you’ve been doing some minimal promotion, then it could happen to you. Think positively and prepare your blog as though it’s going to be a huge success. To do that, here is a tutorial on how to speed up your WordPress site.

Note: As always, with everything, you should backup your WordPress installation before making any code changes.
