I was playing around with youtube trying to get my videocast system working, when I realized that it might work for burp too. Youtube has a system where you can e-mail it videos. This would be useful because a video upload setting could be \'put on youtube\' and then when the video is done rendering the video could be sent to youtube, or vimeo if it has similar features. each user on BURP might have their own channel (not sure if there is a limmit). I realize that this is already kinda being done with the new burp streaming system, but the way I see it there can\'t be too many features.

We disagree heavily with respect to that then =)

I think I will re-phrase that then:

I think that as many features as possible, without making it really complicated is best. If one really simple, intuitive system can take the place of 3 simple systems, overall the one is much better. It all works together, only one interface to learn, one place to go. The other example here is the torrent feed, if one feed can do the same thing as 5, with no in-convenience to the user, why not?

I had said in another post that i would try to think of good ways to get $$ for burp, and here is my idea: present users a checkbox to allow their sessions to be uploaded to youtube during the session submission. This would include the understanding that youtube would host google ads on it (youtube now supports google ad sense) so burp could still get money with ads, but not on the burp site. I think that is marginally questionable still having ads, but i am willing to stand the ads to give burp the proffit. what do others think about this?

The money you generate with Google ads (and other) are peanuts, unless you have a lot of pageviews. By a lot I mean tens of thousands at least per month. With ads on BURP rendered youtube pages you will probably earn enough per month to buy a pack of roasted peanuts.

And there is of course the aspect that to create a good, finite video of relevance to others, you just need to do postprocessing with other software - compositing, cutting, adding titles, adding credits.

But if one or the other really wants - and not anybody will - to keep friends updated about own work, then it is not too much asked to upload a raw animation clip to youtube manually all the few days or weeks.

As I said, on sites with a lot of users it\'s an easy way to get some money, and you can integrate google ads well in some designs. But in my opinion it is not worth disturbing a website, if the prospects are poor. You must also have in mind that on websites where the bulk of the users are regular \"customers\", the getting-used-to effect appears soon and the percentage of those who will click the ads dramatically decreases after a few weeks.

Well the idea was that youtube has build in support for google ads, no surprise as google owns youtube. In that way it would be easy to use the ads.

Lately, my websites get about 1,500 hits a month, and I average about $2.50 a month in ad revenue. It took me almost 4 years to get my first minimum payment of $100.
