And here’s my video:
I’m so unsure of how to proceed. Every time YouTube makes a change, I like the site less and less. For instance, here is a quote from a recent blog post of theirs:
Featured Videos will be primarily populated with videos from YouTube’s thousands of partners, but they might also include select user videos that are currently popular…
And so on and so on. It used to be that they just featured whatever they thought was cool. Now partnering isn’t even about an investment in the site; everything is about money, and I hate it.
In accordance with all of this hooha, I’ve been looking around at other video-sharing sites. I haven’t looked at all of them, but I signed up with dailymotion, so I’m going to try them and flickr out. I don’t know much about flickr. What I know about dailymotion is that you can post videos that are longer than 20 minutes, as well as HD. The normal file limit is 150 MB, which is a little puny in comparison to YouTube, but I think that might be different if you get a motionmaker account, like I did (it’s still free- don’t worry). I’m still figuring the site out. You know what I just now found, though? You can pick your very own thumbnail!
Here’s the video I posted over there. If you all check out the site, what do you think?

What do you all think about YouTube? About the article? About the site’s future?
Oh, and here’s today’s magpral:
