Okay, so I am now preparing a video blogging site. What kind of video blogging? Is it a service like YouTube, MetaCafe or BlipTV? No. I’m just focusing on content or video production. Just like I maintain my blog as usual – writing posts, using a certain blog service like WordPress, instead of creating my own blog platform.
Since there are plenty video engines offered –whether international or domestic services — now on the market, so I don’t want to make the list any longer. For me, video technology / platform is no longer an issue. Our main challenge is how to create great video contents, adding choices for community who preferred enjoying visual-blogging in expressing their thought, curiousity and creativity.
For the first stage, I myself will use various video platforms for this video podcast activities. And when the timing comes, in the near future, we will be happy to use any domestic video service to deliver our content. Because, yeah, we are not one of video platform service players.
This site, which is its beta version will be launched next week, will consist of two kinds of videos: our video and your video. Yeah, you got it right: you can contribute your video pieces to this site: by simply uploading you video to your favorite service like YouTube, and send us the URL. As long as you own its copyright, or you can disclose its license clearly (had Creative Common license, for example) and deliver unique content about Indonesia, we will happy to feature it.
My ambitious plan: this site could be a huge Indonesian online video collection (with great contents and clear licenses). That’s all.
For Indonesia’s videoblogosphere, I hope this effort can be a bit movement, contribution or whatever we called it. I just wanted to try starting this journey and see what’s happen next.
Thanks to a friend, the country’s veteran TV host, who believes that online TV is the future of broadcasting world. His expertise in the broadcasting world in one side, my passion in blogging landscape in another side, hopefully, could be an awesome combination.
Welcome to the video blogging world!
