Multimedia Curation: Create Embeddable Video Compilations with CratePlayer

Multimedia Curation: Create Embeddable Video Compilations with CratePlayer | Content Curation World |
Discover, collect, play, and share your favorite online media with CratePlayer.
Robin Good's insight:

CratePlayer is a web app which allows you to create compilations of video (and audio) clips coming from all your social media accounts as well as from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Soundcloud or from any other website (a standard bookmarklet allows to easily grab video and audio content you find on the web.)

While it is not possible to upload your own files, it is possible to apply a visual cover, a description and relevant tags to each collection, which can be set to "private" or "public" depending on your needs. Furthermore you can invite additional persons to contribute to curate a specific collection.

Final collections can be easily shared on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, via email, or can be embedded on any web site or blog.

Free to use.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, May 8, 2013 10:32 PM

This is a great idea although I don't see where, from just reading the description of what it does, where it's any different than Reel Surfer or Keeeb or probably even a few others. 


There's no doubt, however, that curating and aggregating video content can be a beneficial service to lots of niches.....etc. specific styles of cooking, auto repair, golf tutorials, dancing (e.g. videos on 'cross body lead').


I'll definately subscribe to the site and try it out.  I'll sell you what I wish I cold find:  I wish I could find a tool that made it really easy to insert notes that would display at specific points in vidoes.  A lot of times I see videos where most of it it not interesting but a certain portion of it is.

@wanderingsalsero: Simple. Reel Surfer and Keeeb do not allow you to have a persistant, global playlist. Also Keeeb isn't just focused on playable media.. it's a lot of different things. The "liner notes" that you are referring to are a feature that is coming soon to CratePlayer!
Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, May 10, 2013 5:04 PM

CratePlayer è una web app o un webware, come preferite, che consente la creazione di compilation audio e video dai numerosi social network e social media del web (youtube, vimeo, dailymotion, ecc.) e dai vari siti web. E' possibile farlo anche attraverso un apposito bookmarklet che consente di catturare il video desiderato in modo molto semplice.


E' inoltre possibile, per ogni raccolta creata, inserire una copertina, predisporre una descrizione, aggiugnere dei tag, configurarla come privata o pubblica, condividerla (Goggle+, Facebook, Twitter, ecc.), incorporarla.


Molto utile per la didattica in quanto consente di creare raccolte di video e/o audio da fonti diverse e su un deterimnato tema / argomento da fornire agli studenti per approfondimenti e per lo studio, senza dover fornire loro lunghe liste di  link. Utile anche come esercizio da far svolgere agli studenti fornendo loro un tema sul quale ricercare fonti audio e video da oprganizzare e integrare in una raccolta

Curate Your Favorite Songs with Sworly

Curate Your Favorite Songs with Sworly | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: Sworly is Pinterest for audio tracks. If there is a music track on YouTube, Sworly will find it and let you pin it.

"Rather than encourage users to create interesting collections of images, Sworly brings the Pinterest approach to sharing music.

After logging in with Facebook (yes there’s annoyingly no other choice) you can start to add songs to Sworly if they haven’t already been added.

...At first glance, the ‘Add song’ feature is a little confusing, but it’s actually quite easy to use. Simply enter the artist name and song you want to share, and Sworly will automatically find the best video for you.

Add optional tags and a description and post it to your profile."

N.B.: There is currently no way to delete a song from your profile.

No collections or playlists (yet).

Curate and Monetize Your Best Audio and Video Contents with Pivotshare

Curate and Monetize Your Best Audio and Video Contents with Pivotshare | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: Pivotshare is a web platform which allows you to create a branded web site where you can curate, promote and sell your best digital media video and audio files. 

The service accepts .mp4, .mov, swf, .flv, .avi and .mp3 files for upload and it lets you set the price and the business model (subscription or pay-per-view or a combination of both) that you want to use.

On Pivotshare you can brand your channel with your logo and customize its look and feel, and you can also "bookmark" specific "spots" inside your audio and video content.

Content on PIvotshare is accessible by both desktop computers as well by smartphone and tablet devices and it has the ability to memorize, for the user, where a sesson is left, so that it can be picked up next time he logs in.

You can set up some of your content to be free and some of it to be accessible only by paying for it. Each channel can be fueled by more than a contributor and you are free to decide who will team up with you.

There are two delivery formats available to curate and organize your key assets: a) the Showcase (ideal for ten items or less) and b) the Library (for collections of 50 or more items).

Revenue-wise Pivotshare takes 30% from a Channel’s revenue, and passes the rest to the Editor and Contributors of that Channel.

To use the service there is no upfront cost.
