Getting the ball rolling!

Yes, wow, finally!

New videos have been posted on Kawoosh! and there are many, many more to come. At least I've made a start. (I've been busy, you see...)

Surprisingly, a lot of the backlog were new editors posting links to youTube. youTube is still a no-no on Kawoosh! and is unlikely to turn into a yes-yes anytime soon.

I am thinking of revising the rules in terms of streaming. In this day and age, I'm starting to wonder if streaming (without the option of downloading the actual vid) is all right. Many editors choose to upload their videos to stream and watch on their website to prevent rippers downloading their vids and stealing stuff.

It's at the back of my mind at the moment, but any thoughts/comments are appreciated!

I know of several vidders who prefer streaming sites only. I think, for many of them, it's more about being easy than protection. And YouTube is still the first, and only, place to go for most of them. Even though they have rejection after rejection on uploads. Seriously, my brain can't figure it out.

I worry that you will have a major headache trying to keep up with dead links if you allow public streaming site only videos what with the there-one-day-gone-the-next mentality.

And actually, the idea that YouTube or other streaming sites are protection from downloading is a myth. I can download any video I wish to from YouTube. I do it for any of the videos that I really like a lot and want to add to my archive when it's the only place it exists.
