Uploading Movies
Join to comment
Sean, Mark, Chris.... I have a proposal for you three.

You see, I am endeavoring to create a 2-hour stopmotion in real movie format and I plan on posting on MOCpages. The only problems are, YouTube has a 10-minute limit, posting it scene-after scene would kill the experience, and we aren't able to upload videos.

So, I would like to propose that the average MOCer should be allowed to upload videos to their page, with the same rules as a regular MOC, and with no time limit. It will open up a new age of MOCing, while also allowing for breathtaking movies. It's definently something that, if brought up, will get people going.

I'll have to admit there are numerous times when I too have wanted Mocpages to have a video uploder. It'll be useful for people like me who don't have Youtube accounts.

You DO know how expensive video hosting is, right? If you aren't willing to shell out some 7k a month, just go embed from YouTube. Really, it's not that hard.

Here's the problem with that: YouTube has a 10-minute limit, and I am making a full-length movie, and I am NOT shortening it!!!

IF I was to embed from YouTube, I'd have to split up the movie, which, as I said before, would kill the experience. It's a horror shocker, after all, and you can't split those up without draining some of the esscense away.

Sorry, I have a hard enough time paying the bills just hosting your images. There's a reason YouTube doesn't allow you to upload giant movies ... it's too expensive to host them!

Ah.

Well, snap! I'm stuck between a rock and a herd place, now what am I going to do? *sigh* I guess that I'll just have to split the movie...

You could make a link to the movie on your page instead of putting the actual thing on.
Edit: Never mind, forget I ever said that.

I believe this is the same reason behind the no auto-play music isn't it? As well as the moderation of lyrics for younger viewers. ~Thoy

Nope, that's because autoplay music is irritating unless it's pretty low-key, and a lot of songs aren't suitable for under-teens.

A load of twaddle to make him feel better about never accomplishing something useful.

I totally agree with you. I don't have a YouTube account either.
