#Podcast: How 2 publishers approach YouTube for online video

November 1st, 2013 | No Comments | Posted by in Broadcasting, Podcast

YouTube is officially the largest video-hosting platform in the world. It claims a billion unique users each month watch six billion hours of footage, a total up 50 per cent on last year. The audience and demand for online video is vast and, with 100 hours of video uploaded every minute, there is more and more choice and competition.

So how can publishers take advantage of this platform? In this podcast, we speak to two video producers about what has worked for them in making their YouTube channels a success.

We speak to:

  • Al Brown, head of video, Vice UK
  • David Boddington, head of video production, games and film, Future Publishing

News outlets have been producing online video for several years, with most organisations favouring short clips responding to viewers who favour one, two, five and 10-minute films.

But as technology delivers higher broadband speeds, platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo, and devices such as iPads and connected TV, viewers are increasingly watching long-form online video, often at home, often in the evening, and news outlets are responding.

This podcast looks at how the Guardian and Vice have found success with long-form video documentaries and discusses the various commercial options to make video pay.

Journalism.co.uk technology editor Sarah Marshall speaks to:

  • Dan’l Hewitt, general manager, AdVice, a division of Vice Media
  • Stephen Folwell, business director, multimedia and brand extensions, Guardian News & Media

Last week’s podcast looked at digital opportunities in long-form journalism, focusing on written content.
