How Did Personal Video Eclipse Entertainment Video

I’m speaking at ITEC Los Angeles on how social media impacts business. The next day, I’ll speak at Streaming Media West in San Jose on the power of personal media. In 2007, this was my life. I spent many hours a day with Jeff Pulver thinking about how the broadband Internet would disrupt mainstream TV, broadcasting, and entertainment. To my mind, it hasn’t.

The mainstream stormed over the bulwarks and now owns the top of the iTunes video charts. Though a few examples of top shelf independent video exist, like Epic Fu and Something to be Desired, and a few others exist, it’s not like we took over the airwaves. In fact, they took us over.

BUT personal media, making conversations using internet video, seems to be on the rise. With tools like Seesmic and ooVoo and Skype Video, there are lots of ways to have conversations between interested people. This could be business. It might be church. What do YOU know about it? Some quick thoughts to start the conversation.

How Did Personal Video Eclipse Entertainment VideoThinking about personal video and how it seems to have taken over enteraintment-style video.

What happened? Are you involved in Internet video? Do you use Ustream.tv, BlogTV.com, Mogulus, or any of the other video platforms out there? How do you incorporate it into your media making?

    Seesmic didn’t want to cooperate with me when I tried to record a reply, which is interesting because right now I’m using web video as more of a one-way platform. I’ve used Ustream, but the glitchy Seesmic performance just know shows these technologies need to stabilize before they have a chance to truly replace entertainment video. Skype is another problem: it crashes constantly.

    It’s interesting to see once in awhile. The problem I have with it is that I am FAR more efficient at reading/scanning content than I am listening.

    What I do enjoy, is voice mixed with slideshare presentations or other content. That is highly compelling to me.

    We have started to use video in business more and more. At one point we went all out on a video tutorial for one of our products and was very proud of it. Unfortunately, we were asked by the manufacturer to pull it down.

    We are using video to also show off some of the corporate events that are going on throughout the year.

    Currently we are exploring the use of video testimonials, but have nothing to show at this point.

    You can see some of our video attempts at http://www.unitedlinen.typad.com

    I think personal video has eclipsed entertainment video because the ability to instantly see what we’ve done and sharing that ability with others.
