Winter Video Fun

For a while now, I've been experimenting with various video sharing sites other than Youtube. While I have shamelessly used YouTube for all my videos, I continue to be disappointed with how severely the site compresses videos when switching them into the Flash format we view when we download the videos. I have recently begun using Vimeo. These people use a bit lighter approach when converting video to Flash and they also allow HD video formating, although I have yet to use it. To make matters even more useful, it is easy to share videos on other sites like FaceBook and so on with a single mouse click. I love simplicity like that!

This video shows off the latest family activity, yet another winter sport to keep away the winter blues. I have no intention of getting into it, but it's certainly fun to watch both people and dogs enjoying themselves!

Vimeo seems to have the best look of all the sites, especially if you pay for Vimeo Plus.

I've been using Viddler because it allows branding of the video, but quality wise, you have the best one.

Thanks Simon! I am pleased with results so far. I'm now working on an HD video to post so we'll see what that looks like.
