LLVJ PodCasts??
« on: November 19, 2005, 09:33:33 PM »

The iPod is a runaway success but the photo iPod didn't really cut it. However the new video iPod is getting a lot of interest and good reviews

Who would be interested on LLVJ content available as PodCasts - downloadable by subscription?

Hi Chris,

Would this be content already available on the LLVJ or new content?  If the latter I also would be interested.  I presume this would be a stand-alone subscription, not dependent on whether one is a LLVJ subscriber.  If so, please consider a special "bundled" price for LLVJ subscribers.

BTW, I'm more likely to watch LL podcasts with iTunes on my Powerbook rather than a iPod.

Interesting. I'd consider it.

I would be for sure ready to subscribe if the PodCasts give additional contents not available on the LLVJ DVD version (I think about "specials" like equipment field reviews, workshops, interviews...or even some parts of DVD videos which did/would not fit into the DVD version)(*).
Not sure in case the PodCasts would be same content as the DVD version:
I have no iPod and beeing my notebook (MS XP) all I need for info-education-entertainment, I wouldn't see (for me) any advantage apart from a potential ready available backup-archive in case of DVD future wear out...
too much watching and re-watching, you know!  


(*)P.S.-
 e.g. what about a quick and dirty China trip trailer or, if available, the Brickworks or...?
yes, I know, may be asking too much...

Could be stand-alone or it could be bundled with an LLVJ DVD subsc. - I am just 'noodling' the idea right now.

At this point I do not necessarily see different content (much as we would all like more content)  
Rather, podcasts might be an additional & different delivery method of the same content as the DVDs. Podcasts could be used to deliver the material in a small, highly compressed format at the time it was completed at my end. At this point the quality would not compare with DVDs but seen on an iPod or small size video file would likely be acceptable. Further thoughts?

I'd prefer this format to a mailed DVD.  Interviews, product reviews, tutorials would all be just as watchable on my computer screen as on my TV.  Perhaps the exotic locations would not be as spectacular due to lower screen res, but I'd still "be there".  

Due to the shorter production cycle, content could be more current.  Cheaper, and more convenient, too, I'd expect, for both the producer and consumer.

My only problem would be download bandwidth.  Currently 20 kbps.

Another thing to buy. I am already saving my lunch money for a digital camera to replace my Spotmatic.

A nice idea as I really like video podcasts but I'm much more eagerly awaiting Michael's move to HD.  I can't wait to see LLVJ in HD on my 50".

Hi Chris,

Speaking as a current LLVJ subscriber, if podcasts are just an alternate delivery system for the same content, then I would much prefer the DVD.  I know that it is very challenging to create additional new content as well as putting out the next LLVJ, but new content is the only reason I would consider purchasing podcasts.

Best,

Paul

As a non-subscriber to the DVD, I would definitely be interested in a video podcast. I'm waiting...

Thanks for all the comments - keep 'em coming!

As I see it, there may well be two distinct markets for our content depending on viewer's needs, habits & budget.

1. Prime quality DVD (pref. HD-DVD/BluRay)

2. Small, compressed, topical, inexpensive, downloadable, iPod-watchable.

My $0.02. A podcast would me a great addition, however I would be unlikely to pay for a subscription to the podcast. My thought would be for the pod cast to have similar information and articles as the web site and cross marketed to the LLVJ that might be interesting. The DVD format is a different league of delivery and one that I'm willing to pay for.

I've subscribed to a few podcosts and I find two things:
1) they are uninformed and just some amateur filling bandwidth.
2) many are too long.  Rather than snippets many are over an hour long.  I find these too long to sit and listen attentively.  (yes I know there is a pause feature on the iPod).

So, quick snippets on field reports, interviews, etc. and I'd be interested.

I love the LLVJ and always wait in anticipation of the next one arriving.   I would not replace the current DVD format as I enjoy putting the DVD on my TV and share with my wife and son.... besides I spend too much time at my computer.

Keep sending me the CD/DVD. Now that you have gone digital it is even better. I can sit down and relax with the TV and enjoy the oh so long in getting to me in the mail VJ every 3 months or so.
