Online video is an excellent communication tool that is used in a variety of contexts. Similar to almost any other form of online content, there are some inherent disadvantages seen in online video. Also similar to almost any other form of online content, there are practical solutions for most issues that arise with online video. Combat common challenges with easy solutions.
Below is a list of the most common challenges with online video and corresponding solutions:
First it was strong written content, then it was killer podcasts and now it’s video. The web and specifically blogging is still in an infancy period and for that reason bloggers tend to jump from one type of medium to another in terms of how they present their content to readers.
The truth is while video is great for supplementing a post and podcasts can be taken on the road and to various other locations there’s still no substitute for the written word.
Using video as part of your content creation won’t kill your blog, however if utilized incorrectly video can become an annoying hindrance that drivers users away. Let’s take a look at several ways video can kill your blog. Read More
When it comes to video hosting, which option is the best for your blog?Â Should you stick with an in house solution, pay for a premium service (like VideoPress) or choose YouTube instead?

Last year I wrote a post lamenting about the lack of video blogging apps for the iPhone, especially after Apple launched the iPhone 3GS (not to mention allowing video apps for 2G and 3G iPhones).
Unfortunately the number of iPhone blogging apps embracing video has not improved since then, despite the fact that video editing apps are now appearing within Steve Job’s Â backyard (read App store).

After purchasing an iPhone 3GS about a week ago, I was excited to see what new video blogging apps have emerged since the iPhone 3GS’s launch this summer.
While it seems like every twitter app from Twittelator Pro to Tweetie 2 is including video and/or audio (via third party hacks), a quick scan through the app store revealed a scarcity of video blogging apps–all of them by third party companies.
Thus far CellSpin and BlogPress are the only major video blogging apps out there, with the latter allowing you to post multiple video’s per post.
So my question is where are all of the video blogging apps? Can anyone explain?
