A couple of weeks ago we relaunched our video sharing site but instead of writing a post about it, we wrote tweets, and shared the news on Facebook with our fans. The design is cleaner, navigation is easier, and videos start playing and streaming quicker which is important for an improved viewing experience.
You might notice that UnleashVideo no longer accepts video uploads, and user accounts no longer exist. The focus is now solely on video viewing, sharing, rating, and engagement.
All new video content for the site going forward will come from Spidvid’s video production community. Everything has been customized to accommodate the team produced content from Spidvid.
How all future video pages will be:
- Collaborative production teams – All other video sharing sites acknowledge the video creator by displaying “By: creator name” on their video pages. What we do is not only display the creator but each team member who helped produce the video as well, which showcases their Spidvid profile picture and link.
- Google Maps – Each team member is displayed on a Google map with the rest of their team members. Doing this outlines the concept of empowering anyone from around the world to form production teams who then create and produce videos together. This shows not only who the members are, but where they are located as well.
- Facebook - Facebook Connect has been integrated so that anyone can post a comment on a video (when logged into their Facebook account), and then share that comment and video link with their friends on the world’s #1 social network. Disqus has also been integrated to allow anyone to post a comment as a guest or via their Disqus account.
