Online video

I have been playing a bit doing some research on YouTube. I realise YouTube has been around a while and I have watched many videos on it but I hadn’t looked into uploading video to YouTube until now.

YouTube is a site which allows you to upload video clips (in the same way that Flickr and Zooomr allow you to upload photos) and share them online.

I setup an account and uploaded some quick videos.

Why am I playing with it? Well, my wife is Spanish and her family are always interested to see how our children are doing. I can take a video of the kids using my camera phone, copy to the computer, and upload to YouTube in a few short minutes. Each video gets its own url and I don’t get hit for hosting or bandwidth charges.

The interface is very straightforward and it seems to accept most video formats.

This has great possibilities for anyone interested in online video.
