I need to provide a direct link for those without a video-enabled RSS reader anyway.
Plus Blogger provides that as an option with the Link field. And theoretically, FeedBurner can now just snag your first link and is *supposed* to accept rel=enclosure (but I haven't gotten that to work, and I stopped trying since the "link" field option works). Here's what's wrong with the popup and link-through options: 1) POP-UPS. Am I the only person who still HATES POPUPS?!?!?!? I can't stand them. Hates, hates hates. Maybe I should "get with the program," but popups suck. 2) Both of them require the user to make an extra click to get the video. What's the point? I want the few people who actually view my vlog in my blog space to just have a one-click option. Boom, you're on my page? BOOM! There's the video! Click to play, you're done. Since I know that means anyone visiting my vlog starts getting hit with a big download, I don't embed more than one video in a single page, and my videos don't auto-play when they download, so people can stop them from downloading (click ESC), or just not play them if they don't want to. --Stephanie On 2/9/06, Joshua Kinberg <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > If you embed the videos in the blog entries, then you also need to > provide a direct link to the video file in order to use a service like > FeedBurner to create enclosures. > > This is why the video popup method is good.
