My YouTube RANT

Andy HeadHardHat Smith of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast


Should beggars be choosers?

I have a rant and I know that in "The Big Picture" of things in the YouTube world,  I am a teeny tiny fish in a really big ocean. I also know that the "service" YouTube provides is essentially free. With that being said I also provide content to YouTube and they gain advertising marketing off my shows even if it is comparatively small. So here is my gripe, let me know what you think.

On Thursday we recorded episode 021 of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast. Everything went fairly swimmingly and the show went out as a videocast as usual - well almost. Our videocast includes our Pre-show, the show itself and the post show. We have a huge audience that absolutely loves the Pre-show and watches it faithfully. Two major things happened with that broadcast. First and the most upsetting to me is only the last 31 minutes of the show was rendered and put out as the show. That means the first hour was NOT included. Luckily it catches the meat of the content that discussed having an effective elevator speech about Geocaching but to lose an entire first hour of the show? I tried, I mean I tried getting in touch with anyone at YouTube/Google to fix this and I can't get a human. I tried their digital feedback routes and have not heard a thing. Is there no way to actually make contact?  

Next a much smaller issue but not a whole lot less frustrating is how we are the beta testers to the OnAir hangouts. Every week we play the What's broken this week game, finding out usually mid show what functionality is going to hose up. This last week they added new functionality to remove the guest bar at the bottom of the hangout screen and you can either show it or not. I prefer it showing because Debaere and I make gestures and faces during the show. Even with the setting for the bar to be on it defaulted with having the bottom bar taken away. You can't tell when you are actually broadcasting so we didn't know until afterwards. Again a small thing but a series of smaller things effects a lot. Come on Guys beta test this stuff before sending it out to the masses. We rely on YouTube to get our content out and I don't think it is too much to ask to make sure this stuff works before making it go live. Being a QA engineer myself, this drives me insane.

I also really do not like the "We are so big we don't have to bother conversing with anyone",  attitude. You own the video world you can afford a decent tech support staff. Putting up a wall from everyone is not good business...

Okay, off the soapbox I'm getting more light headed than usual. Have you had issues with YouTube? What did you do to get them resolved or did they? Let me know.

Podcacher Podcast And GeoSnippits Interviews




 All I can say is WOW! It is so great to be back in the video creation biz again. More correctly is it's so great to be back making GeoSnippits Videos again. The past few weeks have just flown by since GeoWoodstock XI and I am putting everything together in one spot when it comes to Debaere's and my fantastic meet up with Sonny and Sandy from the Podcacher Podcast. Check this out and we hope you enjoy the shows.

We start off with The Podcacher Podcast where Sonny and Sandy interview Debaere and Andy Headhardhat Smith during GeoWoodStock XI in Lakeland, FL. This is their entire show and they give great accounts both with us and the rest of their GWXI travels.  Also very cool is that they feature GeoSnippits in the title so I believe that means we now have officially "made it"  ;) , please be sure and give it a listen. You can hear it --> http://www.podcacher.com/2013/06/show-423-0-geosnippits-and-scga-store/


Next is the interview Debaere and I happily did of Sonny and Sandy. We had a blast and quiet frankly I am extremely pleased of the entire conversation with Team Podcacher. There are times with certain interviews when things feel made up or plastic. I can tell you the second all of us sat down through both interviews it was like we just sat down to play cards and just chat. Very relaxed, from the heart and you can see the expressions on their faces how much they care for each other, their family and their impact on the Geocaching community. You are not going to want to miss this GeoSnippits Geocaching Video Reboot episode

 Finally if you have never attended a Geocaching Mega Event and want to learn some great Geocaching insights straight from Debaere and HHH right after they attended GeoWoodstock XI. Check out their latest episode of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast. Episode 020: Surviving A Geocaching Mega Event Weekend. 
You can watch the videocast here --> http://youtu.be/N2Qz2-pKzZo

We hope you enjoy our meet up with the Podcacher Podcast gang and be sure to check out their podcast at www.podcacher.com and our podcasts and Geocaching videos at www.geosnippits.com.  Thank you!
