Wild, proves you gotta read a lot of comments on a lot of different blogs to make sure you see everyone who has feedback about what you do. Here a commenter over on TechCrunch says that PodTech isn’t listening to feedback (asks for Flash player and shorter videos).
My answer: Flash player for ScobleShow is coming. Audio-only versions of my show are coming. iPod-playable versions are coming. Soon.
I’m sorry I haven’t gotten it done yet, but we’re making significant headway on all those.
As to the length of the videos. This is something I’m looking at too. I learned the hard way that YouTube doesn’t allow more than 10-minute videos.
Now, some of my videos are shorter than that. Especially when I get demos I try to get them done in four to five minutes. So, that’s an easy request to respond to for that.
But, personally, many topics need more depth than that. I am not aiming at the mass market with my videos. If I were, I’d care about making them two minutes long. But, I’d rather be known as someone that’ll get some meat when I do an interview.
How can you really get a good look at anything a developer is doing, unless it’s the most simplistic API or service, in less than 10 minutes. Heck, I just interviewed the guy who came up with the name “WiFi” and we talked for 50 minutes simply about naming products (and we could have gone longer).
That said, now that I’m getting a bunch of videos I think doing a weekly “YouTube Edition” which is less than 10 minutes, but has highlights of the week’s interviews is potentially interesting. That would let me take two-minute snippets from, say, four of the week’s shows, and have me introduce each show’s snippet and explain why that snippet caught my eye.
Does that interest you?
