a present official project
Life in a Day Gallery interface
and the way
the data are presented
Hello and have a great day! I just noted today (about 15:00pm Jerusalem time, September 2, 2010) that official Life in a Day Channel at youtube launched Gallery of Life in a Day videos (where I left a comment, a kind of a shorter version of this post).
Well, this is an interesting video gallery presentation, as no one knew before how it will be organized.
Clicking on an emotion tag opens a series of related videos, playing simalteneously (i found it not so convenient, yet no much boring)
One can also click on a particular video image thumbnail to have a given video opened under the same screen of Life in a Day channel home
At first look there is no way to switch to a regular youtube video view, where comments or like-or-dislike can be added. However, when a video is over, one can use the coding to copy it to a new browser tab/window to have the same video re-opened.
I found little flexibility of smart video search and grouping. While exploring Life in a Day gallery, I had a feeling the gallery is designed to be just viewed by either one of the emotion tag or a geographical tag or as a result of random selection of videos on the Globe. While this is fun, it makes little space for a serious presentation of one's thoughful film.
I did not have a chance to note that the issue of multivideo submissions is addressed in the Gallery, so, they could be played one-by-one as a complete film, as we do at lifeinaday.tv .
youtube-users' generated lifeinaday.tv adds value to a present official project Life in a Day Gallery interface, so, check it out and justify yourself. Should you wish to share your video or several videos presented as a playlist, please visit sharing web form at share.lifeinaday.tv
There are presently 40 Life in a Day films by ordinary youtubers, i welcome you to join us! Note: Gallery by youtube is not complete either: the Gallery home states (left bottom corner):
"More videos each day: Kevin and his team are adding more videos to the Life in a Day gallery as they are reviewed. Check back soon for more footage"
I would like to add: Don't wait for tomorrow, share your video at lifeinaday.tv today: it won't take more then 5-10 minutes of your valuavle time. Lifeinaday.tv is well indexed by search engines and warrants more specific interested-in-your-agenda viewers of your film overtime.
