This is a anime video (Urusei Yatsura - Inaba The Dream Maker) from veoh.com
is a resource you should know about for making video available on the web. It has some really nice capabilities lacking in youtube.com. You can upload videos of ANY length, and you can upload high resolution video and it won't get turned into the tiny low resolution muffled audio video that youtube, myspace, gofish, and a host of other similar sites use.
I've created a special bbcode tag to allow these videos to be uploaded here. The use of this tag is as follows:
There are two strings that identify a specific video on veoh.com
, a permalinkid, and an id. You can get them by selecting all on the "embed" block and then copy, then paste it into the message editing window here, and you will have a block of code like this:
<embed src="http://www.veoh.com/videodetails2.swf?permalinkId=v550789mDcRXHfJ&id=3875386&player=videodetailsembedded&videoAutoPlay=0" allowFullScreen="true" width="540" height="438" bgcolor="#000000" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed><br/><a href="http://www.veoh.com/">Online Videos by Veoh.com</a>
Now this code can't be used directly, put if you look at the very first line of code you'll see permalinkid= and then a string, that string is the permalinkid, simply cut it out and use it as the first argument to the veoh bbcode tag, do not include the trailing ampersand. After that you'll see id= and another string, that is the id, cut that and use it as the second argument to the veoh tag. Again, do not include the trailing ampersand. Separate the two arguments with a comma as in the above example.
That will create a player box like above that will allow someone to view the video. To upload a video you need to create an account on veoh.com
. Just go to the website and click on register. It's free.
I highly recommend this over youtube for several reasons. First, veoh.com uses peer-to-peer networking for distribution. This allows bandwidth to scale with the userbase so they can afford to offer high quality video instead of being stingy on bandwidth and limiting video to 384k. There are no length restrictions, if you want to create a video documentary that is three hours long, go for it. Even with the embedded player you can go full screen. They are very non-restrictive in terms of content relative to the other providers. Keep it legal and label the content correctly so they can protect minors from seeing adult video and that's pretty much the limit to what they require. You can read the terms there for specifics but it's far less restrictive than youtube or myspace. Have Fun!
