Looking for a clearing

Seems there have been several reported issues involving newly-uploaded videos.  Something tells me that I probably won't run into these issues, but I'd rather play it safe and wait it out a bit longer.

Guess you can learn something new...

From reading the most recent YouTube Blog Entry...  Not sure if I'll actually use the tip highlighted in the entry, but it does seem like it could be of some use to anyone wanting to improve a video's search tags.  Actually, I think I already knew that insight kept track of search keywords people use to find a video, but I didn't think of using those results as additional search tags.

Working on new video 'series'

Today, I just completed a video to introduce a new series of videos I will be working on.  It will somewhat revisit some old videos of mine, one in particular being the very first video where I mentioned the YouTube Partner Program.

It's going to be my first 'real' experience editing a 'high definition' video, though it really isn't much different from what I've done in the past with my earlier version of Sony Vegas.

Hopefully Upgrading to HD (sort of)

I just picked up some new video editing software, and it seems like it is able to create videos in 720p for YouTube.  It can probably handle 1080p, but until more YouTube users get faster computers and internet connections, I think 720p is more than efficient.

YouTube's Recent Release Notes (Sept 30th)

The YouTube blog has posted it's most recent feature release notes.  Read it here.  (If you would rather get the short version, click the 'More' link below...)

The short of the update: more languages supported, more countries added to the Partner Program, updates to the video editor (which I can't use on my computer), Autoshare to MySpace (kind of late, isn't it?), filtering update to the 'Charts' page, improved screen reader accessibility (for visually impaired users), 'Shows' available in France, new 'HD' and 'CC' badges on search results, an 'Add to Playlist' button on video thumbnails in search results, and finally, the 'grayed out' videos which have been previously watched.

Anyway, I was going to mention this as a YouTube bulletin, but I couldn't post it for some reason.  Guess I need to find out what that's about...
