... by which I mean, "for what purpose?", or "why do you publish your work on Youtube?"
I've been prompted to ask by Rollingstocks recent posts (welcome back Rollingstock) in which he's advising against stripping in a title into a YT vid as it's a waste of time - especially (if I'm understanding this correctly) a waste of some of that critical first 10 seconds.
This is no doubt good advice - for those whose objective to to get as many views as possible - but I wonder how many here actually have that as an objective.
I don't make videos for YouTube.
I use YouTube simply as a convenient way to show my films to people I know, normally by invitation of some sort.
"Invitation" may take different forms: requesting people on DD to criticise or comment; giving members of my video club and opportunity to view them again; via links from our club's website so that those interested can see samples of our work; from other organisations websites (for example the website for Sunbury Regatta links to my film film of it) and just invitations I send out via email.
Yes it's nice to get additional vews, but that's not an objective.
I just wondered how the othere here use it.
