Sunday, 17 June 2007 - Favourites

I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube. Even though I love them because anyone can submit their vids and footage onto it for free, and it's easy to find something you have an interest in, things are not as straightforward as they used to be.

Companies complaining about breaches of their copyrights by YouTube users means most of the stuff that people REAALY want to see gets removed as soon a it is posted. Gone are the days when you could find full episodes of new anime straight out of Japan and hot US TV shows. You could say that YouTube has become a victim of it's own success. Hell, they've even blocked access to YouTube where I work, because so many of our younger employees were caught watching it when they should've been working!!

I consider myself lucky that the internet is so vast in content, that you can find many a "YouTube" wanna be out there, eager to pick up the slack. A simple Google search (yeah, that too!) while looking for episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender lead me to a few other video submission sites including my current new best friend,!

I've recently gotten into capturing video footage on my mobile phone (very cool), and I came to the conclusion that at some point, I might want the world to see what I see through my eyes. I've recently been attending some major events in central London (more on those later), and thought it was a good idea to take some vid footage to show to those people who are interested in what I did and saw there. These kinds of things are normally one-shot. If you miss them, that's it. Once in a lifetime experience over in the blink of an eye, and you'll be kicking yourself until you're 84. Makes sense to capture the moment, doesn't it?

I'm still relatively new to this sort of thing, but had little trouble figuring out what you have to do to get your stuff out there in the public forum. Using Veoh was quite quick and easy to use, baring large video file sizes, but then again that's what Veoh can do that YouTube can't (to the best of my knowledge).

The level of content is quite good, and I've even discovered new vids straight outta Japan that I've been desperate to see first hand, like the Devil May Cry Anime and the sequel to Agent Aika (the king of panty-shots returns!).

One other reason that I have an account with, is because some of the posters there post hentai (read: Japanese animated porn). They're free, but they don't stay around very often so you have to be quick to grab them before they disappear. We internet pervs need to stay on top of our game to be able to grab free smut whenever we get the chance!
