Hello all,

I have seen the latest craze in the beta scene is lots of videos of upcoming betas and concept OS's etc, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a flash video player for the site? I have some software that I can use to make flash videos out of avi's, wmv's, mpeg's, etc and I could put them all on their own page with links etc or make it so you can embed them in posts too...

Anyone interested? For those who want to know the software is called Camtasia. An example of a video I posted using the software is on http://www.abyssunderground.co.uk/vhcproject.php

I think this is a great idea.
I also think it would improve the appeal of the site. Whilst Screenshot Galleries are increasingly common, a Video Gallery would be something new that would help bring members to the site.

Also, having a selection of videos on a site which has a much more knowledgeable user base (ie, compared to Commenters on Youtube Videos) might go some way to stop the spread of misinformation.

Evolving the whole screenshot/media section could be great. A lot of the time the coolness of new stuff is hard to notice in screenshot and a video would work better. Adding a more prominent media section to the site would be a big win.

I like installing betas to see how I can break them and do some testing but I'm sure there are people who only download and install them to see what it looks like. A video section would greatly simplify things for those guys.

Yes, being able to upload and embed videos directly into posts would be a great feature.

Great idea. Would be far better than having to click on (sometimes dead) youtube links.

yeah i agree 100% with this....

there are so many things out there that are "cooler" seeing in video.....most have seen pics of Phodeo lets say, but its always cooler to actually see it in action...or seeing pics of flip3d is cool but again seeing it in action is a whole different ball game!!

i say its a wicked idea!!
