Global-flat pimped: The YouTube Flatland Video Library
« on: June 13, 2007, 10:54:39 PM »
Do you like videos ? Yes, probably you do. Then you probably also like YouTube. But looking for good flatland videos can be a bit annoying sometimes since there are toooo many videos. That's why we decided to start a YouTube flatland video collection. All the registered users can add videos and everybody can watch them of course. So that's basically a community project to collect all the flatland videos flying around out there. At the moment it's kinda minimalistic but with your help it's going to grow in the future! The video library is part of our video section: click here to check it out   and to add your favourite videos.

----Sure, yootoob is great, til someone starts stealing yer sh*t and posting it there without permission, like my old York Jam 95' video there on yer list that gets posted every week by some new digital-thief. I can't see advertising for a BILLION $ company (or providing them with any free content), let them steal from someone who can afford to sue them.

Well I think most of our videos are on youtube as well ;) But I see it as free advertisement for our sport.

----I would agree up to a point. Ie = I'm not trying to make $ and sell sh*t like you are. I post here (used to post on pedal) when I have a new video clip to show, I'm not stingy, don' t even begin paint me like that thank you, it's about yootoob selling themselves to google for what $1.6 BILLION. And how much did you get of that ?  I know I got zero. Keep flatland where it pays and makes money for people. If Mtv wants to pay Terry Adams, or Matt Wilhem, or whoever, a couple grand and fly them out to ride for 45 minutes, then they can own that footage and post it on yootoob to sell their crap to the kids. I personally want my sh*t shown in full quality, and only where no one makes money off people's riding talent, and my time spent hacking the video together. Same thing as you, different bottom line is all, you = making $, I and the riders in my videos = not getting paid for that video, or as a result of it.

This is a good idea, I like it.  It already it has a lot of videos, perhaps it would be good to have a few categories (e.g. event coverage, solo riders etc) to make it easier to find something relevant to watch?

"looking for good flatland videos can be a bit annoying sometimes since there are toooo many videos" ... "a community project to collect all the flatland videos flying around out there."

Seems like it'll be the same, just less choice. It'll just be good to sort out the "good videos" from the crap videos, but who decides whats good and whats not?

Search for "flatland" on youtube .. you won't even find a bike in the first 2 videos ... and it's the same for many other keywords ..

We'll add new feature to this section step by step. Take a look, there are preview pics for the video now.
