Videos?

Postby B☠N3S » Wed Nov 12, 2008 11:53 pm

How bout we make an account in Youtube? Post the videos there and then show them here? There is a bunch of people on youtube that use Gimp and dont know about Gimper.net and i think the should! We could have the tut staff thing everbody hated but for Videos...? That way you kill 2 birds with a rock or something like that...

Meh...maybe I will be rude back..If 100 viewers all make 3 videos on "gimpers" youtube account he would have 300 videos and probably over a few thousand subscribers now if we have 100 youtube accounts and everyone has like 4 subscribes is it really worth it? Now, let me throw in other factor ppv (price per view) what Bones has suggested is "machinema" a site with thousands of accounts but there all put together on one youtube account. That youtube account has 400,000 subscribes that means they make like 5k a month! Hope you understand my points.

Hmm... but then the password will get out and someone along the way will change it and steal the account, etc. I find it better if you just make your own account... and NOT take the forum name...

EDIT:
OR! One person will be in charge of the account. All people who want their tutorial to be featured on YouTube need to upload the video to their own YouTube account and link to it in the submission process. If the video is found to be what the "Gimper YTube" account holder is looking for, then he can have the video sent to him via a file sharing website, email, etc. That way, a password isn't messed up like I explained above and we don't have a whole bunch of spam videos. How's that sound?

I think that would be a better idea...

I think Gimper should (IF he's up to it.) He can also feature the new video on gimp-tutorials.net. Besides, he owns the forum.
