YouTube Risks

if used in embedded mode into your site then can limit the drag


blog July 2008

YouTube is an unnecessary risk to reputation.

"drag", They pull along a little red wagon full of undesirable content behind them., Positioned alongside this often questionable content, your message could end up sending a viewer to a competitor, or worse still, cause them to be offended.

Forms of drag, Advertising, Ads on some sites are extremely inappropriate, offering Viagra and Cialis, or dating services, adding an undesirable sleaze factor to the viewing experience., Perhaps worse is the prospect, quite real, of a viewer being hijacked by an ad for a competitive product or service., check what is on YT, Related Videos, videos linked to yours through the virtue of a few key words, This offers a multitude of ways for your message to be diluted or connected with something you’d prefer not to have your company associated with., Delta case study, Delta Airlines ran a contest and identified a real employee to record a safety video, which the company then posted on YouTube., The campaign was a big success, gaining national media attention, and the video has close to one million views (more I would argue than live flight attendants have received in the history of aviation.), > Watch ? ..., aomeone attached a video about delayed flight, Comments, This is really a problem on YouTube, where it seems there are thousands of people with nothing better to do than leave comments like “this video sucks” and “fail!”, “All in all, do they really think they are going to win over one extra voter with this stuff? All interaction is another way of people saying they hate you. People on the internet feel a lot braver than when they are face to face with you.”, YT does not check what is uploaded, YouTube does not view videos before they are posted online, and it is left to copyright holders to issue a takedown notice under the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Organizations including Viacom and the English Premier League have issued lawsuits against YouTube, claiming that it has done too little to prevent the uploading of copyrighted material.[31][32] Viacom, demanding US$1 billion in damages, said that it had found more than 150,000 unauthorized clips of its material on YouTube that had been viewed "an astounding 1.5 billion times"., WP, Rating, star ratings, YT links to articles that refer to a video

Alternatives to free services, Bright Cove, long text, A lot of companies are using Brightcove for example, where you pay by the month based on number of streams viewed. You can “skin” the player with your logo and company colors. It is embeddable, so it can be inserted into a company blog post, social media newsroom page, or on a third-party blog just like a YouTube video. The difference is, you’re now driving traffic to YOUR site instead of YouTube. Sure, more people are visiting YouTube, so if large numbers of views is your goal, I recommend BOTH approaches. Do you own branded embed on your company sites and then upload the same video to YouTube. Brightcove also manages hosting, so you don’t have to worry that demand spikes and bandwidth will be a problem., There are a number of similar offerings to Brightcove, such as Permission TV, Maven Networks, KIT Digital, The FeedRoom, and VMIX, Twistage, and Move Networks. I have singled out Brightcove not because it is the best of these (though it may be), but because I am familiar with it.

May 09 Gordon Browns Youtube Trauma

YT here, 70K views, as of April 4000 watch this one but video of him picking his nose has been watched 630,000 times, no comments, looks bad, when did he post it?

Brown’s mistake, in this instance, was poor management and a lack of empathy.

On a matter dear to the hearts of all MPs - their pay and expenses - rather than consult, he pronounced his verdict. That he used YouTube to do it is a sideshow.

Social Media tools are just that. In the hand of a craftsman they can achieve great things, but if used in a sloppy manner they will not magically give great results.

another whole article on "he turned off comments", reason - moderating offensive comments would be too arduous., Closing down the conversation, However, I suspect in this case, it was pretty good crisis management., people took the conversation elsewhere, For although the stated aim of the exercise is to speak directly to voters, it seems that No 10 seems less keen to have the voters talk back., follow Civil Service Code, In terms of allowing people to comment online, we need to adhere to the Civil Service code: no content on the website can be party-political. We would need to monitor and moderate all comments posted online.”, big limitation

His performance in the expenses video, notably his awkward smile and disconcerting body movements, have been widely mocked.

"woeful viewing figures", you get judged like this

general internet presence, official Downing Street YouTube portal, something you can setup?, YouTube channel, started under Tony Blair in 2007, it has a Twitter feed, a Facebook page and an e-petitions site, on which voters can lobby the Prime Minister., Paul Staines, who is author of the Guido Fawkes political blog, said that Downing Street was playing into the hands of Mr Brown’s detractors by trying to conquer the internet., e-petitions, The e-petitions website, launched in 2006, has proved to be a headache for the Government,, with people more likely to use it to petition for Jeremy Clarkson to be made prime minister than to save their local school., The eighth most popular petition of the moment, with 17,665 signatures and counting, asks Mr Brown to do just one thing: resign.

Security Oct 08

Computer security specialists warn that hackers are using fake YouTube pages to trick people into opening their machines to diabolical software.

"Essentially this can be used as a tool to serve up everything -- botnets, key loggers. Visually, you can't differentiate this from your regular YouTube page, it is done so well."

While people may be wary of links or programs emailed to them by strangers, they eagerly open such offerings from "friends" in social networking communities.

Estimates are that as much as 40 percent of social networking profiles are fakes, according to figures cited by Cloudmark Inc., a company specializing in protecting Internet messaging systems from spam and hackers.

ease of use, its cost effectiveness and its ability to reach an established audience.

issues, availability, YouTube reserves it right to interrupt, modify or discontinue aspects of its services. YouTube’s potential unreliability may have ramifications for the stability of government web pages when using embedded YouTube players., imitation as on occasion, they have been unable to effectively upload and release their videos at appointed times in Australia, due to scheduled outages and maintenance, ‘timed’ release of content, to coordinate with the launch of a program for example, this is a significant limitation., embedding, Embedded YouTube players incorporate prominent YouTube branding and link to the YouTube website, of which the removal is prohibited. The issue for Government is an implied endorsement of a commercial third party and potentially unfair competitive advantage., Embedded YouTube players include links to and advertising of other videos at the conclusion of each video's content, this 'banner' of content represents advertising on the part of YouTube and cannot be controlled or removed and it may include irrelevant, inappropriate and potentially offensive video clips., trailers, As agencies have no control over the trailer videos that are advertised, this should be considered in terms of risk. For example a video espousing a particular public health issue may be followed by a spoof video with a contrary message. Trailer videos are served to users based on similar keyword ‘tags’ used to describe the video. Lessons so far from other government agencies indicate this is sometimes not helpful and can result in contrary messages or unrelated content on the same page., tagging, Performing a search on videos with these ‘tags’ will expose a number of related videos that potentially present a message contrary to the message the government wishes to convey. In an agencies assessment of the appropriateness of using YouTube, agencies should check their video descriptor ‘tags’ against the search in YouTube to help assist in determining the level of risk associated trailers might pose in relation to the government message., related, YouTube use a system of promoting ‘related’ videos and ‘promoted’ videos on the page that contains an agencies uploaded video (where videos are uploaded to the YouTube site as opposed to the YouTube player being embedded onto the government website). These related videos are also presented on the basis of related keywords. For example, a campaign targeted at youth on the topic of binge drinking might include the ‘tags’ of ‘teenage’ and ‘drinking’ and ‘nightmare’., rights granted, By submitting a YouTube video government automatically grants a broad licence to YouTube and YouTube users to reproduce, distribute and prepare derivative works of and display the video. YouTube can use any submitted video in anyway whether commercial or non-commercial., According to the YouTube Terms of use, agencies loose control of their content once it is posted., actors copyright, Many agencies are successfully using YouTube and some have negotiated their own YouTube channel. However, they have found additional issues around the use of their content especially if the video content used actors that were contracted under advertising guidelines for a certain media that has been extended into video on the internet. Permissions must be sought from actors and people appearing in the videos to be broadcast on video sharing websites., deletion, YouTube licenses do not automatically terminate once a video is removed - licences remain for a 'commercially reasonable amount of time'., ToC, The Terms of Use are heavily in favour of YouTube., They purport to deny or heavily limit their liability to the user, and generally require the user of the site to indemnify the provider against any loss or damage arising out of their use of the site or service., Dispute resolution clauses specify the U.S. as the relevant jurisdiction for resolving any disputes. Acceptance of the Terms of Use by the user forms a legally binding agreement., It should be noted though that these are not dissimilar terms to those offered by most private organisations, but the issue should be considered by agencies in their assessment of the use of YouTube., endorsement, Another issue agencies should consider is the brand ‘YouTube’ is used in their embedded video player and all over the YouTube website itself. There is an issue that relates to what might appear to be Government endorsement of a particular service or website because of the branding that is automatically affixed to downloads or content from that site.

LA times Sept 2008

YouTube helped jump-start the online video craze with consumers. Corporate parent Google Inc. is banking that it can do the same in the business world.

integrate with G Docs

The free add-on to Google Apps allows employees to upload a video -- say a training video, a corporate announcement or highlights of a sales conference -- and then invite colleagues to view it securely. Employees can also comment on videos, add descriptions and tags, embed videos in internal Web pages, search for any video to which they have access or download videos to their laptops or phones.

How big a draw will video be for businesses?

Analysts aren't sure. Until now, companies have been slower to adopt video because of the cost and complexity.

AMR Research analyst Jim Murphy says he's impressed with the progress Google is making in appealing to corporate America.
