In Making A Special Presentation On Vimeo

24 Aug

Number I:
If it is Special, DON’T “Go With The Flow.” Doing WHAT Everyone Else does, such as uploading to You Tube, is merely “Following The Crowd.”
I first discovered this when shooting the rather massive 2011 Historic Coverage of The Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage, which is exclusively on Dailymotion, the World’s Second Largest Video Site. Coverage of The Events were uploaded to You Tube, where it was largely ignored, save for one round which was mostly watched in Canada.

So much for the “Go With Flow” Crowd! The “Flow”, in this case would be the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. People paid little attention to You Tube, much greater attention on Vimeo & a good deal of attention on Dailymotion.

Number II
In order to receive credit for an actual view of a video, a viewer has to watch over 50% of the Actual Video. This is how views are actually recorded on Vimeo. Not only that, but the Video Producer cannot click up his or her own views. One wonders just how many Views on You Tube are of this standard which Vimeo has. Below 50% on Vimeo, a Load is credited.

So, to the ones who appear in their local Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship, being carried on You Tube, one wonders just how many times the winning comtestants are clicking for what amounts to a load on Vimeo?

So on Vimeo, a View is where over 50% of the Video is actually watched. The View Count is REAL.

I can live with that. Someone actually watched the Video.

Deo Gratias!

    The Other Day, The Vice Postulator of Fr Felix Varela, Most Reverend Octavio Cisneros, who doubles as Pastor of Holy Child Jesus Parish in Richmond Hill, Queens, in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn, gave the talk to the Parishioners at the H C J Leonard Center on The Lawn at a Barbeque.

    So I decided to record it. Vimeo became the place to upload it.

    And, while not You Tube Numbers, and going by Vimeo’s Higher Standards, people actually watched the programme, not click on an advert nor click the programme for a mere few seconds.
