A couple of times now, I've received comments from German folks that can't view my videos on Youtube because of the restrictions on the background music and that, for me, presents a problem. I really do want you guys in Germany (and everywhere else) to be able to view my videos, but how? And is this a problem in other places of the world?
I'm still going to choose music that I enjoy for the background and upload those videos since primarily my audience is from North America which doesn't have any such restriction. So how do I handle the Deutsche? Would you prefer that I upload with no music? If I do, the video will be completely silent as the audio is removed when I speed up the playback. I can't post real-time since a lot of the recorded footage is 30-40 minutes long, and really, who wants to watch me play for 30-40 minutes! A 5-7 minute, sped up version is much more tolerable.
Is there music that you know I can use? I think Youtube has some music available, but I have no idea how good it is or whether it even fits with the videos. I may have to look into that.
Do you know if I upload to Photobucket will the original video and music be watchable then? Is the video below viewable and can you hear the audio?
I would rather not completely upload everything to Photobucket since the resolution seems to suffer and also they don't have a tool where I can add notes/annotations over the video. So I don't know... I leave it up to the Deutsche community on what they want.
1: Youtube with no audio, but with notes/annotations.
2: Youtube with whatever audio Youtube has as common license and with notes/annotations.
3. Photobucket possibly with audio (if it works), but lower quality video and no notes/annotations.
