these videos connected to their account on my site.
We've got notifications and an activity stream for a reason - moving
outside the Joomla registration system by doing 3rd party uploads
makes that more difficult. A single login is important as well.
There is a 3rd party, Bip/Youtube solution built right into the
social network application (JomSocial - http://jomsocial.com ), but
that runs afoul of another requirement - control over advertising.
I want to run ads for many small businesses that are involved with
dog sport. Cheap, visible pre/mid/post and overlay.
There is another video application that I've looked at that uses the
JW player, and I'm intrigued with the ad capabilities of Longtail,
but it's a lot of work to configure and administrate, and then
there's the cost of a beefy server to stream the content.
I was just thinking about how cool it would be to have a Blip Multi
User kind of a set up - essentially a channel for communities like
mine - a K9Athlete Network. I could book advertising and control the
distribution of it. I'd love that! The Blip player just rocks!
That's essentially what Infinovision is doing, btw, creating a multi-
user network on Amazon S3. JVideo is the application controlling that
network in my CMS. Advertising and branding are/will be available in
the paid subscription service - it's my application under my control.
Thanks for the discussion. It's helpful to think about, for sure.
