Since my recent issue with youtube and me signing up with blip.tv, I thought I would incorporate those videos into my website. I really like the player and the quality’s good too(once you sign up and become a “Pro” member). Now this is obviously a huge undertaking, to give an idea what I’m dealing with; roughly 3000 videos with a total length of nearly a month spread out over 50 completed let’s plays. The total space they’re taking up is 1.8TB.
Because of the sheer volume of these videos and me having to re-render them to fit for blip.tv this’ll be a process that will take a multiple of months. Therefore I’ll be picking some easy/shorter games first to get those up and give me an idea on what the videos page is going to look like with many more games being added over time.
You may have noticed that I’ve added a “Videos” link on the main navigation bar, this’ll take you to the page where there is a (for now, small) overview of games which when clicked will lead you to the game’s page with the playlists. I’m currently thinking about how to best organize said videos and it is likely that this will change over time, but the main idea will likely stay the same; give a good alternative to youtube and make it friendly to navigate.
Any ideas or suggestions are of course welcome.
