EEVblog Video Now On Dailymotion
« on: October 13, 2015, 04:18:44 pm »
All my videos are now available on Dailymotion for those that don't want to / can't watch on Youtube:
http://www.dailymotion.com/eevblog

I know I did a video saying it didn't make sense financially to do that, and that is still the case.
However, many people have said they like to see the videos on another platform like Dailymotion or Vimeo as a backup to Youtube, and I think that's a good idea.
Dailymotion offered to copy all my video and meta data over from Youtube, so now every video is available.
Albeit in only 720p because they said they can't copy the full HD versions automatically.
I also won't be actively reading or replying to comments on there.

I have to stick with Youtube I'm afraid, the Daily Motion and from memory the Vimeo sites required me to sign up to LG for some bullshit add on or plug in to get their videos to work in addition to running flash which I dont need to do with the current mob.

I hope Youtube are reading your post here and take notice, I'm pissed off with the auto play thing and it's not uncommon for me to have disabled the checkbox up to 3 times on a single video, just bullshit and they should invert the option to always off.

I don't expect anyone to switch from Youtube! Nor do I want them to. It is just an alternative for, meh, whatever reason.

Nice Dave, some in countries where YT is banned will no doubt be thankful.

Might this help also your Wikipedia hassles?  :-//

Yes, I've had quite a few complaints about Youtube being banned in China for example. Even employees at the companies concerned can't watch a review of their product for example.

They seem to be ordered chronologically. That's very nice.
Drain the swamp.

What about uploading your videos to China services? If you get popular, maybe some chinese people can help you at subtitles (be sure to do a peer-reviewed process to avoid translation mistakes, of course) :)

The Dailymotion site says "All EEVblog videos are duplicated on here as well as Youtube"
I am not seeing them. I don't think the mechanism for loading videos on DM is working properly lately.

Nope, they don't auto-upload it seems.
They did the big mass copy as a one-off, but I wasn't the least bit impressed with the quality, they couldn't even copy full HD.
So that doesn't give me any enthusiasm to continue to use them. No point taking the videos down though, might as well leave them there.

I'd put my videos on Vimeo too if they also offered to bulk copy them including the metadata over like DailyMotion did.
Vimeo isn't free though.
