Democratic Underground now has a Video Forum!
The Democratic Underground Administrators are pleased to announce our new Video Forum. Now you can watch all the latest political video in ONE PLACE, collected and posted by your fellow DU members.

Features of the Video Forum

1. Content is selected and posted by all the members of Democratic Underground. The combined efforts of the DU members will help insure that the content of the forum is always fresh, relevant, and up-to-date.

2. Videos are embedded right in the thread, so you don't have to leave Democratic Underground to watch.

3. Automatic duplicate checking, so videos with the same URL won't be posted over and over and over again.

4. Videos can be embedded into your DU Journals.

5. Recommend videos for the Greatest Page and the DU homepage.

6. Reply to video threads just like regular threads - discuss the videos with your friends.

Where to find the DU Video Forum

You can access the DU video forum from the Latest Page or the Lobby. Look for it below the Editorials & Other Articles forum.

Or, you can click this link to go straight there: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Enjoy!

Skinner, EarlG, and Elad
DU Administrators

We've wanted to do it for a while, but Elad was too busy with other things.

17. Are You Guys Open To A Quick Question/Suggestion?
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 04:41 PM by OPERATIONMINDCRIME
I just went to the forum and it's already filled with some awesome stuff. This was truly a great idea. What I'm curious of; though I know it could take too much altering of the forum to make it worthwhile, is if there could be a column with the estimated run-time. Of course, this input wouldn't be required and could be null if not entered, but it would be a great quick way to know just what we're gettin ourselves into prior to clicking on the link. Should we block out some time, grab a cup of coffee and kick our feet up? Or are there a quick 5 or 6 ads/funny clips that are less than a minute each that we can quickly jump through? Etc.

Would be a cool way of knowing what we're dealing with prior to having to go inside the thread and scanning to see if it is detailed there somewhere.

Just wondering. :)

21. We might do that.
We discussed it beforehand and decided to take a wait-and-see approach. We wanted it to be as simple as possible for people to use.

But, as I said, we still might do it. After using the video forum for an hour, I am already wishing for that feature.

Considering that a sticky is supposed to be more visible and reach everyone, that strikes me as really, really funny.

24. Question: May we post links to videos at Crooks and Liars, et al?
Crooks and Liars and other websites often have great videos: Are we permitted to post threads in the Video Forum that have just a link to another website with an explanation/description, just as we normally do in GD, the Lounge, and elsewhere?

29. Currently the Video Forum only supports embedded YouTube video.
So direct-linking to crooks and liars is not really an option.

47. Yes, I realize that, but I would like to post links to videos from other
websites like Crooks and Liars. Here's an example:

Crooks and Liars Video: "Bob Schieffer calls Mehlman out on the Harold Ford ad"



"On Face The Nation, Bob Schieffer wouldn't buy Ken Mehlman's "lame" excuses for running a racist ad against Harold Ford when he paid for it. He called into question the notion that Republicans hold all the cards when we're talking about "values" because actions speak LOUDER than slogans. Heading down the stretch to November 7th, this administration has shown America that "winning" is their core value. If Bob calls you lame, wellyou're just lame."
______

SCHIEFFER: But, but Mr. Mehlman, the logic if I think something is wrong but I take advantage of a law that allows me to take advantage of that, that's pretty lame, if I may say so.

MEHLMAN: My response to that ad is the same response Mr. Ford had from a race perspective. I would not have put the ad up. I did not think that it was necessarily a racist ad, at the same time

SCHIEFFER: But you approved of it.

MEHLMAN: I did not approve of it.

SCHIEFFER: You said you thought it was "fair." You're on the record saying that.

This is an excellent way to explore new boundaries.

Perhaps this will spark new interests in video production by fellow DUers. I know this will spark a well deserved interest in my video editing and production. Can't wait to post something I've been working on.

Thanks again for making DU sooooo damn Hip/Kewl..... :applause:

40. Just like DU forced this computer semi-literate(me) to learn to use PhotoBucket
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 08:00 PM by BleedingHeartPatriot
and HTML text as well as Google bombing, I will now need to know how to upload my videos to YouTube.

Don't laugh too hard, things that come easy to one generation are not quite as easily assimilated by the older ones.

However, I love this medium and I will be studious where others are facile.

edited to add, and, a central source of embedded video here at DU...all I can say is... :loveya: MKJ

What the "views" function is showing is the number of times a particular discussion thread has been viewed.

60. We need a DU rapid response You Tube team
We need people who can make WMP and QT videos for rapid responses...like this Kerry issue...and post the links online - like Crooks and Liars does.

Those DUers with You Tube accounts could then download the files, and upload to our respective YT accounts to get OUR message out.



(If my vision is limited, it's because that's the only way that I know how to do it.)

With the direct You Tube link we have the opportunity to rate up the video as well as increasing the number of views, which can affect the "honors".

Thanks!!
