It’s Time, My Catholic Brethren To Go BEYOND You Tube(Or Live On You Tube)

14 Dec

You Tube, I realize, is a Household Name. I see that at Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage Time, from January through March. It is as Predictable as Cold Weather in Antarctica. It is as if nothing else exists. But, You Tube is NOT the ONLY thing out there.
And for Catholics, You Tube shouldn’t be the ONLY THING utilized in “The New Evangelism.”

It’s Time to “Move On” to something newer than You Tube, which is passe’, as it is 10 Years Old. Your Parish or Ancient Order of Hibernians Division or Knights Of Columbus Council Event is NOT going to draw Justin Beiber Like Numbers on You Tube, unless your organizations have cash on hand to increase views via a “Clicking Farm.” As it was discovered about 5 Years Ago, as Live Streaming Services were starting up & Smartphones became Cost Effective Ways to produce & direct events, Alternatives to You Tube were found. The World’s Second Largest Video Service, Dailymotion, based in France & 80% Owned by Vivendi, became Home to the 1st Ever HD Coverage of The Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage, to be seen outside of You Tube. Artistically Inclined Vimeo was Primary Host of the 2011 Long Island Final Coverage. There were Viewers in 80 Nations around the World watching, including many in the USA. Of course it was no fun listening to assorted “Soccer Parents From The Underworld”, repeating the Mantra that ONLY You Tube delivers Huge Numbers of Viewers. Apparently, they never watched ANYTHING Else other than You Tube, which is banned in many nations. There were Viewers in Iran & Mainland China, viewing the Coverage on Vimeo. Meanwhile, the Biggest You Tube Coverage Viewers were located in Eastern Canada, for an event in Queens, NY. One wonders if “CBC News-The National” should receive promos on You Tube Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage. I even considered putting on a Pregame Show called “10:30 In Newfoundland”, complete with an Impersonation of The Voice of Wendy Mesley on CBC, intoning “10:30 In Newfoundland.” Hey, no one in East Glendale, Queens, was watching the Competition, Home to the “You Tube Demographic Experts.”
I do head over to Veetle, Ustream, Livestream, Et Cetera & find that loads of Protestant Services are aired on these Livestreaming Services. Then, I look at You Tube & find that Catholics tend to go to You Tube(Though, Lately, Dailymotion & Vimeo are becoming places for Video as well).
But there are the Live Streaming Services, which can be done from a Smartphone. And they are free. And for those of us living in the “New Evangelism”, Certain Polemicists have done great work on the Services outside of You Tube. Michael Voris’ “Mic’d Up”, used both Livestream & Blog Talk Radio as a Simulcast. Louis Verrecchio uses Vimeo in his “The Tradwriter” Videos. And “The Remnant Newspaper” will be adding live video operations & Vimeo.
Dear Catholic Brethren:
You Tube is so 2005. It’s Time to expand beyond there.
And now, You Tube is live, so, using the Live Truck App, I will go Live in The Future.

Vivat Christus Rex!
