For a while I was posting little movies of my kid to YouTube but I ran into a lot of issues.
First of all, their service does not accept .MOV files and that is the file type that my camera outputs, so I had to go through a (lossy) conversion process, then upload the .AVI file to YouTube. Also, YouTube doesn’t have any editing tools, so basically, you’re stuck with the video you took, even if it ends stupidly.
Then I found Jumpcut.
Jumpcut lets you upload .mpg, .mpeg, .mp4, .avi, .mov, .wmv, .flv, .rm, and 3GP (mobile phone) movies, and once they’re up there on their site, you can add titles, some goofy things like make it black-and-white, or sepiatone, add music, add transitions and all sorts of Señor Spielbergo
This routine home movie of a boy and his dog is now beyond entertaining thanks to some pre-programmed fonts and effects!
It also has a little bit more of an updated feel than YouTube, more user-friendly and community oriented. So it gets my vote, and someday we may be saying “WhoTube?”
