Adding a Flickr Slideshow to a WordPress.com Blog

September 17, 2008

In a previous posting I mentioned Flickr slideshows, I also mentioned that WordPress.com blogs couldn’t use the code, as WordPress.com stripped it out.Well look here I have embedded a Flickr slideshow into this blog entry. I used Vodpod to do this.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Edit: had a few issues with this blog post, hope it is working now.

Edit 2: think I may have solved the problem.

13 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute

September 17, 2008

The Official Google Blog has a really insightful and interesting posting on the future of internet video. One interesting statistic is that thirteen hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!

What Google think is that:

In ten years, we believe that online video broadcasting will be the most ubiquitous and accessible form of communication. The tools for video recording will continue to become smaller and more affordable. Personal media devices will be universal and interconnected. Even more people will have the opportunity to record and share even more video with a small group of friends or everyone around the world.

I am not even sure it will take as long as ten years!

The new compact MP4 Flip’esque cameras that are now available make it even easier to shoot and upload video.

At ALT-C I was broadcasting video live from my phone over the internet, I recorded, edited and uploaded a video in 30 minutes in a workshop.

I wanted to share my video of the ALT-C and I was very able to do so and in HD!13 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute
