As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

    The goal of this example is to show you what API calls to make so you can programmatically add a subscriber’s email (and other information) to a list at FeedBlitz. Let’s assume you’re developing a plugin for WordPress; any WP plugin developer should be able to integrate with FeedBlitz! The example below isn’t limited to plugins, of course; it can work with any web site, product or service you can extend programmatically.  You use simple Web requests, so it’s pretty easy for a web developer to do. Prerequisites The user of your plugin will need: A FeedBlitz premium account At…
  • The FeedBlitz REST API

    Phil Hollows
    8 Aug 2014 | 10:41 am
    The REST API is an XML-based API. It is, like FeedBlitz itself, complex and at times may be challenging to use. For simple use cases, such as integrating a FeedBlitz subscription mechanism into your site or service, we recommend using one of the APIs I’ve already covered this week, or a plugin / widget that has already done the work for you. If you’re building such a plugin, widget or tool, then depending on your use cases you may need to delve into the REST API in some depth. Programming Required: Yes API Key Needed: Yes Best suited for: Web developer, plugin developer Skill level:…

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:06 am
    While there aren’t too many Blackmagic URSA 4K cameras in the wild, we’ve got another set of beautiful test clips. Shot by Hook — who has been involved with Blackmagic test shoots before (and now works for the company) — this footage is the first we’ve seen from the EF version of the new URSA 4K Cinema Camera. While the previous footage was shot with old PL cinema glass, Hook used very new and sharp Canon EF glass throughout the video, and was able to come up with some spectacular results.
  • What Does a Colorist Really Do for Your Films? This Video Takes a Look

    Joe Marine
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:47 pm
    Colorists are often the last thing people think about on many lower-budget projects, but besides a good sound editor, they are what bring your video to the next level. A good colorist is capable of (within reason) making your footage match perfectly from shot to shot, and they are often a great second set of eyes to give you a new perspective on what your project is about and how it can look its best.
  • Metabones Just Made the Speed Booster Even Better

    Robert Hardy
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:22 pm
    The Metabones Speed Booster, a device first announced close to two years ago, not only reduces the effect of crop factors on smaller sensors, but provides shooters an extra stop of light. Now Metabones has just announced the Speed Booster ULTRA, which promises even higher optical performance than the original. Like the original Speed Booster, the ULTRA still has the same feature set in that it widens the field of view by 0.71x — which effectively allows for a full-frame field of view on s35-sized sensors — and it provides an extra stop of light. However, what sets the ULTRA apart from its…

    Many organizations make their first video a calling card—a video that showcases the business or nonprofit’s main activities, mission, key staff, and culture.

  • Viral Video Versus Hero, Hub, and Hygiene Video

    5 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    Wikipedia describes the history of viral video as dating back to email distribution in 1995, and it’s probably fair to say that the idea of viral video has caught the imagination of organizations creating video many times. Who doesn’t want to create a video that will be shared millions of times for free? Yet viral video is kind of like a lightning strike, and letting the idea of it drive your video strategy will not put your organization in its most effective position. YouTube has been systematically discouraging the mindset that focuses on viral video of late, for example in the…

  • Crowdfunding and Video Are a Match Made in Heaven

    8 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Crowdfunding means exactly what it sounds like: funding from a crowd. When you use crowdfunding, you solicit donations from a number of people for a particular project, and, depending on the model, they may only pay if you gain the funding you need. It lets projects that can attract as little as $10 from many people go ahead; it’s the kind of thing that makes the Internet a truly inspiring tool. Kickstarter is perhaps the most famous crowdfunding site, with Indiegogo a close second, but YouTube has recently announced “Fan Funding” which allows YouTube channels to seek…

    As we slowly pull back on a wide shot of the summer and use a cross dissolve to fade into the fall, film schools are once again being filled with students talking about Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, Guardians of the Galaxy, and why people still go see Michael Bay movies.

    When video marketing was first gaining momentum, it seemed well and good to produce an asset, distribute it, and hope your audience loved (and shared) the content; but today, from a modern marketing lens, video production and distribution are only half the battle. As many companies past the experimentation phase are realizing, a well-made video with a ton of views or likes means absolutely nothing if you can’t tie its performance to ROI.

  • Are Usage Caps on Broadband Service Justified?

    David Sokolic
    27 Aug 2014 | 5:52 am
    Comcast, the largest broadband provider in the U.S., is conducting usage-based broadband trials for broadband caps.  And, they’re not the only ones – about 64% of Americans are covered by a usage cap according to GigaOM. So, what does this mean for the industry and the consumer? The Comcast trial plan includes a cap of 300 GB per month, with a $10 overage fee for every 50 GB above that. First, that’s a LOT of bandwidth, so most consumers won’t have to worry about hitting this cap in the near future. Comcast says that XFINITY Internet customers’ median monthly data usage is 17 GB…

    “Net Neutrality” is one of those politically charged phrases. If you don’t support Net Neutrality, it’s viewed as akin to being against fairness, equality and apple pie. Wired magazine’s Robert McMillan wrote an excellent article on the topic: “What Everyone Gets Wrong in the Debate over Net Neutrality.” In it, Mr. McMillan explains how most people think about the Internet as a ‘cloud’ of content services, with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) – which include companies like Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon – connecting the end users to this cloud over ‘last mile’…

Whether you are selling it on a premium site or giving it away for free, unless you keyword it properly the chances are no one is ever going to see it!   Keywords are what search algorithms use to find content and serve it to the person searching. For example, if I typed “Water Drop Night” into a stock footage website search bar, I’d be faced with all the clips that have water, drop and night as keywords – letting me quickly see exactly what that site has to offer on that subject.   Needless to say, stock video…

How is this neutrality? Simple. ISPs will still have to provide access to their services to everyone, but they can now charge a price for preferential treatment.
