A growing trend online is podcast video. While

podcasting was originally only for audio files, more

people are beginning to send video, especially with

broadband connections more accessible. To podcast

video, content distributors enclose it in a web

syndication file that users can download and view when

they want. Users subscribe to the different files,

checking them for updates regularly, and download the

new offers when they become available. Each file is

often referred to as an episode, and may be part of a

video blog, or vlog.

Podcast video, and other types of podcasting are thus

part of the blogging revolution. Individuals and groups

around the world, with a small investment in equipment

and time, can become content producers. Because it is

so simple to use and cheap to set up, many people are

getting involved. They can podcast video around the

world, becoming producers and directors for any small

niche they want to exploit.

Many of these podcasters have small audiences that

download their podcast video, but larger groups are

getting involved. News organizations and websites that

serve massive audiences are discovering that podcasting

and podcast video can distribute their content to

millions of people easily. These groups have found that

podcasting video is yet another way to distribute their

news and information. Since podcasting is so easy to

use, it’s likely that even more people will start using

podcast video.

The Pros and Cons of Video Blogging
September 28th, 2016 by Me2You

The Pros and Cons of Video BloggingVideo blogging has a lot of advantages over text-based blogging, and it is little wonder that this new technology is catching on all over the globe. Video blogs very effectively grab the attention of web surfers, and people are much more likely to become excited about the dynamic content of a video blog than they are likely to find a written posting very thrilling.

The more enthusiastic viewers are about a site, the quicker the word of mouth spreads, and the more traffic the site will get.

Of course, there are plenty of disadvantages to video blogging as well. Hosting a v-blog requires quite a bit of server space, which can make it difficult to get started. It takes more time to process and upload a video file than it does to dash off a quick bit of text, which means that running and updating a video blog can be quite a bit of work. In addition, web surfers sometimes grow frustrated with the slow loading times of the files on many video blogs.

Whether you opt for a video blog or not depends on what kind of subject matter you want to cover, and how much time you can devote to video blogging. Before you decide to pursue a video blog, consider if there is an easier way for you to get your message across.
