Asil's curator insight, October 12, 2013 4:38 PM

According to the site, they have the ability to strip the ads off the videos you put on your lists.  Makes me wonder how YouTube and Vimeo will react once they realize they aren't getting ad-views.  And if there are no ad-views, how the makers will feel about the loss of revenue?

The founder is James Yang.  There's a nice article about him on Social Times: http://socialtimes.com/huzzaz-makes-it-easy-to-create-and-share-video-playlists_b136571

From the article: Huzzaz is a passion project. “I just want to create something that helps make the world a better place.”

Curate Real-Time News and Video with WordPress Media Explorer

Curate Real-Time News and Video with WordPress Media Explorer | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Automattic, the company behind WordPress has just released a tool which allows WordPress users to curate real-time news coming from Twitter and YouTube video clips without ever leaving the standard WP posting dashboard.


From TheNextWeb: "Akin to having Storify right in your WordPress platform, users can click on the “Add Media” button while they’re editing a post and see options to insert either a tweet or a YouTube video.


Being able to embed social content like this isn’t new — both Twitter and YouTube have made it possible for a long time, but WordPress is now streamlining it so that you can simply query based on keyword, hashtag, user, or geographic location, and it will populate the relevant content."


My comment: Sign of the times. Soon most publishing tool will integrate curation facilities that allow easy searching and integration of excerpts from articles, videos and other content types into original content. The WordPress Media Explorer confirms this trend while providing thousands of small independent publisher with ready-to-use simple curation facilities.


N.B.: At present the Media Explorer is available only for WordPress.com users, but it will be soon available as a Jetpack also for self-hosted WordPress sites.

Where Curation and Storytelling Meet: The 85 Seconds Clip

Getty Images touches people in a new campaign created by AlmapBBDO. 

Robin Good's insight:



A new promotional campaign for Getty Images, created by AlmapBBDO, showcases an excellent example of video curation at work.


In this case, Getty Images and its partner agency have decided to gather, distill and juxtapose some of the most beautiful video clips available from the stock image giant, into a "short" (less than 2 mins) capable of telling a simple, human story with no voice-over or dialog.


By curating the best video clips from the Getty Images stock library into a simple but truly engaging visual story, the authors have not only created something that naturally engages human viewers, but have also realized a fantastic showcase of Getty quality images and video, without ever talking or mentioning it in any way.


Excellent work.


Hats to Marcello Serpa, Luiz Sanches, André Kassu, Marcos Medeiros, Renato Simões e Bruno Prosperi.

Here's Something Good To Curate: The Short Cutts

Here's Something Good To Curate: The Short Cutts | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Get the actual answers to 100s of Matt Cutts Web Master videos: The Short Cutts
Robin Good's insight:



Here's a good real-world example of good content that could become one hundred times more useful and valuable for readers if it was just "curated" a bit more.

A company called ClickConsult has had in fact the great idea of culling together all of Matt Cutts' videos (the Google Spam team evangelist), in a one-page collector, while complementing all clips with a summarized text answer.


Great idea and cool execution: http://www.theshortcutts.com/


but...


It's impossible to find what you are looking for or to browse in some kind of intelligent way, because all of those 100 video clips are all mixed together. Yes you can search, sort by newest, but there are no groups based on common questions and topics (and there are a lot), no sets, no playlist on any of the hot topics covered.


This is why I thik this is a perfect example of a some good content where if you only add a simple layer of curation, by organizing and grouping related items, this same collection becomes instantly one order of magnitude more useful.


Original collection: http://www.theshortcutts.com/#

Robin Good: YouTube has just introduced a great, valuable feature to its playlist service, by allowing playlist authors to add short video clips at the beginning, end and in between any clip, to contextualize, introduce or explain what has been seen or is coming up next.


From the original article on TheNextWeb: "YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said: "You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."


Source: http://thenextweb.com/google/2012/08/23/youtube-makes-easier-video-creators-tell-story-new-intro-outro-feature/

 


This is a great addition for video curators who can now add their viewpoint, comments and context to any video compilation they decide to assemble.


N.B.: You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long.

YouTube To Replace TV News by Curating Dynamic Video Channels for Crisis and Emergency: The Crisis Response One Box

YouTube To Replace TV News by Curating Dynamic Video Channels for Crisis and Emergency: The Crisis Response One Box | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube is moving further ahead in the effort to find new and effective ways to "curate" its most valuable content and in doing it it may just provide a better service than live TV.


In this light it has partnered with Storyful, a content curation platform provider, to give life to a series of new curated channels with user-generated videos, covering live emergency crises around the world as they happen.


SocialMediaToday (AU) reports: ""YouTube collates Storyful’s verified footage and provides the most up to date clips in the separate Crisis Response One Box at the top of the search results, so that people can view legitimate and genuine footage relevant to the event, and keep apprised of what’s happening. Often, before they will be able to view it via mainstream media outlets..."


"YouTube created the Crisis Response One Box in conjunction with Storyful in an attempt to provide almost instant access to the latest breaking news footage in the event of a crisis or disaster.


Information can be slow-flowing, particularly in making its way around the globe. Users don’t have to wait for their local news station to provide an update."


Mashable reports:"...The tool curates the most up-to-date videos and information on major crises and disasters.


YouTube implemented it for the first time on Monday, once news of the floods broke.


The box also includes text information and resources, including links to Google’s Crisis Response project and related news."


"...the Crisis Response One Box includes three types of content: a curated playlist of videos, a Google News cluster about the crisis and the Google Crisis Response page. All of these resources are regularly updated until the crisis abates, when the box will no longer appear with the search results."

Curate and Syndicate Your Own Custom Mobile TV Channel App with iLook.TV

Curate and Syndicate Your Own Custom Mobile TV Channel App with iLook.TV | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

"iLook.TV crowdsources TV channels, TV programs and TV commercials."

Robin Good's insight:


iLook.TV lets you curate custom TV channels distributable via smartphone compatible apps that act as pay-TV like subscription channels.


The channels are commercial and can include or accept advertising requests thus providing a monetization opportunity for channel curators.


iLook.TV is made up of two components:

1) iLook.TV website where you create your channels

2) iLook.TV ChannelApp for ditributing your custom channel
 

In a Channel you can add / syndicate video clips and submit TV commercials to the iLook.TV system.


The ChannelApp is instead a mobile app that can be fully utilized by Channel subscribers as Program Guide for your channel as well as a TV remote to watch specific video content on their connected large TV screens. The ChannelApp can be branded, configured and submitted to the Apple App Store.


ILOOKTV supports three methods of monetization: subscription, pay-per-view, and TV commercials.


Soecifically:

  • A Channel subscription must be purchased by a TV viewer to play videos that are marked premium.


  • Pay-per-view (PPV) videos are marked with “Buy” (forever) or “Rent” (for 24-hours) and require a payment from a TV viewer.


  • TV commercials are submitted to the ILOOKTV system by advertisers and are automatically played on Channels that request them.  Advertisers are automatically charged for each insertion via instant auctions.

.

Revenues are collected by iLook.TV from subscriptions, PPV and commercials and are automatically shared with Channel owners.

.

The cost to own a Channel is $100 per year. 

N.B.: Channel owners also need to pay the standard $100 Apple Developer fee when they submit the ChannelApp to the Apple App Store.

.

Promising concept. Rough implementation.
A glimpse at what the future of video curated content may look like in the near future.

A Curated Audio-Visual Masterpiece: A Color Map of the Sun by Derek Vincent Smith

Robin Good's insight:


Here's a great curation story. Derek Vincent Smith also known musically as Pretty Lights has published a video album that is a curation masterpiece since its very inception. To create a uniquely personal sound and style Derek has brought to the recording studio tens of musicians to record and master 25 vinyls from which he would then sample, remix and curate the final tracks of his new album.


The videos of the tracks, (here is a short playlist I've created of some of the most representative ones) are equally impressive, as they have been produced by capturing imagery that would be otherwise be considered utterly useless and curated with graphic and visual effects of all kinds as to generate some truly visual masterpieces.


Check the story of the making of the video here: http://youtu.be/jOZtWO7P6-g 


The results, in my humble view, are truly stunning. 

See this video to get an idea of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RlcrCRSY4Y&feature=share&list=PLCoh11EkrUagtT06Dlv4ayybfF1BlHNHc 


Here we have a music artist who has not simply written music and recorded it, but has conscioulsy produced musical content to the curate from it something new and unique. 


Curation at its best: 10/10

My comment: Excellent video and music playlist maker. Powerful and speedy search function makes it easy to find any video or track and to arrange it into a publishable playlist. Excellent solution to create/curate valuable, unique and immediately useful content for your audience.



Free to use.

Curation Examples: Videry, a Collection of Video Clips For Web Designers

Curation Examples: Videry, a Collection of Video Clips For Web Designers | Content Curation World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



Videry is a great example of video curation at work.


Videry is a hand-curated collection of over 30 great video clips for web designers.


The beauty and value of this collection, in the context of curation is in the following:


  • The quality of the clips selected

  • A clean, and simple layout - content over looks
    The essence is in the selection made and that's why it needs to stand out.

  • The essential info is upfront - video thumbnails + title + description
    no other distractions.

  • A Pinterest-like simmetrical visual layout that allows easy scanning of the page


Where it could do better:


  • Titles: no personalization for context - titles in the collection are exactly as the originals - the curator here could have improved and contextuaized titles for this collection, while keeping a good reference, visible to everyone, of the original one.

  • Descriptions: these are the original video descriptions. No additions, no opinion, no contextualization. The curator could have written his own descriptions from these in the context of this collection, while leaving the original descriptions as an extra option (since they are all already accessible under the original video location).

  • No visibile authorship for the collection.




P.S.: I think this clean design used in this collection is so effective that I wish there was a service prividing the ability to create curated video collections with such information design elegance.

@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

Find, Discover and Curate The Best Part of Any Video Clip with ReelSurfer

Find, Discover and Curate The Best Part of Any Video Clip with ReelSurfer | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Reelsurfer is a web app which allows you to find, discover and clip (in the sense of extracting from a larger item) videos into either a thematic reel, or into a collection of diverse stuff.


ReelSurfer provides a browser bookmarklet to make it easy for you to grab any interesting video clip you find online whether on YouTube, Vimeo or on one of the other tens of sites supported.


PandoDaily reports: "...create reels of multiple videos, either from within a single longer video or reflecting a theme across multiple videos. All ReelSurfer videos link back to the original content source allowing the viewer to watch full length video should they choose. Because ReelSurfer doesn’t host videos, but rather links through to source content, all videos on its platform retain their native advertising such as pre-rolls and mid-rolls."


From my viewpoint, and having seen quite a few of these tools, I have to say that ReelSurfer is the easiest to use. Add to this the fact that ReelSurfer doubles up as a video discovery tool and all of the responsibility for the kind of video that you can produce with it falls onto your shoulders. That is: ReelSurfer is great, but it's up to you to curate and pull together great stuff, that creates new meaning and value for your audience.



Free to use.

Will do! We are also in a private beta to allow our clips to link back to promote a site or a product. Would love to invite anyone from this thread to take part. Please email neil@reelsurfer.com if you want more info.

Wow this could make presentations so much easier!!

Janet Vasil's curator insight, May 31, 2013 9:18 AM

This looks like an easy tool that could be used to "curate" a sizzle reel from the best parts of your own videos as well as tell video stories combining your video clips with clips collected from others.

Curate Your YouTube Channel with YouTube One Channel | Content Curation World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



YouTube has just made available a new way to present, organize and curate your own YouTube channel presence. The new feature set allows any YouTube channel owner to:


  • Set up a "trailer" video to be shown to all thos epeople who are not yet your subscribers.

  • Display his YouTube One Channel page across all kinds of devices and resolutions without a problem.

  • Organize and present your clips and selected ones from others the way you want.


From the official site: "Take greater control over how you present your videos and playlists on your channel.


You can now curate content — your own or others’ — into highly visible sections for your fans to discover what to watch. With multiple layouts for videos and playlists, you can arrange your channel to best highlight your content.


Now, when your subscribers click on your channel from the guide, your full channel appears instead of just your activity feed. Your fans see exactly what you want them to when they click on your channel."

Curate Your Personal Clips Into a Shareable Video Mashup with Ptch

Robin Good: Ptch is a new free iOS app that allows you to "curate" your favorite pics and clips from your own library and social stream into an audio-video mashup that you can share with anyone.


From Mashable: "Ptchis an app for iPhones and iPads that lets users combine photos and video clips into a one-minute or less “Ptch” that can be shared instantly.


Users can add styles and music to a Ptch, and friends can “reptch” or edit videos by adding their own media.


Launched in July, Ptch takes the concept of Instagram to another level by letting users mash their media together with tone and expression. The app is designed to capture users’ experiences in real-time, and also let friends mix in media of their own experiences.


...


Creating a Ptch is simple – select your favorite photos and video clips, choose a style (original, matte, epic, soho, vivid, fillmore, kane or kaskade) to make your Ptch more powerful and then pick a song from the app’s music list. Users can also create titles for their photos.


Once the Ptch is done, press play and share it on your stream or with friends via email, Facebook and Twitter. You can also make your Ptches private if you don’t want to share them.
"
