Upload Videos and Track Stats

Seems that some of y’all have been paying attention to what I’ve been complaining about for several months (most recently, in a post outlining the frustrations of the way video networks are handling processed video).

I don’t have the time, energy, or patience to upload the same video file to more than one site. Video networks are hungry for new content, but they’re not doing a very good job at mitigating the risk a producer must take (in spending time transferring a large video that may get a lousy sum of qualified views). Through the grapevine, I’ve heard of at least three services that are aiming to become the upload distribution point for produced video content.

In essence, I upload to one service – and from there, that video is re-uploaded to a growing number of video indexes. I realize that Veoh has had this feature, but it’s limited in scope and doesn’t offer more than a couple of networks (one of which is likely to disappear at some point).

Video statistics across networks will need to get better, too – and I bet TubeMogul will be acquired within months (damn, I should’ve asked for a cut). Advantage to the sneezer who has the advertising and statistical models in check – and I think YuMe is the one to watch there.

  3. Thanks for the mention, Chris. I don’t know that we’ll be acquired within months, but we certainly plan on continuing to pay attention to what ails you in the world of online video!

  4. Yes, I share the same paint as u in having to spend so much time uploading video to so many different sites. Beside looking at softawre to solve my problem, i was also looking at online services. Then, i came across TubeMogul and Vidmix. TubeMogul is a better choice for me at the moment as it can submit at once to 12 sites. Will check out YuMe as u’ve recommended.

    Thanks a lot for sharing.
