Video update

Well, this is confusing.

I am still working with the idea of distributing to youtube, either through blip or a separate youtube account (though I would of course prefer to manage it from one central account)

Youtube states that videos can be up to 15 minutes long, but blip.tv claims that they need to be less than 10. I am currently trying to find out if blip is, well, having a blip, or if their rules are valid.

If they are, it means that part 2 of the blood review is too long, and needs to be split into 2 parts.
The thing is, currently part 3 is about 16 minutes long, which would be too long anyway. But whether I just trim it, or if I also split that into 2, is dependent on the rules.

So, basically, I'm getting most of the work done, but I am unlikely to publish until I figure this out.

I also attempted to re-encode the Dragonball review using the desk bell sound rather than the bowl sound, which would make me feel better about enabling advertising on the episode (I'm thinking of splitting it into at least 2 parts, see the rules above)
However, I had to re-encode the resources I used, which was fine. Except that the film itself for some reason lost it's positioning markers, so each clip is just the Fox logo.
I also don't have any of the audio files anymore. As a result, that's not probably not going to work. At all.

YouTube's previous limmit was 10 minutes but it was upgraded to 15 minutes in 2010 for all users. Some users can qualify for longer videos, and special partners have no such limits. Check out the YouTube Blog for some very helpful posts on this subject - which by a strange coincidence I found myself reading just the other day. GW
