    OVER 5000 Views - Why?

    This is a video we did a while back, and i wish i knew what i did right with it, so i could get that many hits on my other stuff...

     As i review it now, i can sure see things i'd do differently.

    Any ideas?

    here it is:

    The title has the word 'pony' in it. That garrantees a hit from any young girl aged between 5 and 80.

    Something else that can influence views is if someone has embedded the video into another website.

    What I think has happened with some of my YouTube videos is that someone unknown to me has decided to add my clip as an imbedded video in their own blog, website or whatever. So it's not something you have much control over - but would explain why a particular Video is getting more attention that just a normal YouTube listing.

    "Pony" - that still cracks me up - so, if someone wants to embed my video, they don't even have to ask?  cuz i've been trying to monetize my youtubes, and they fuss about the slightest bit of music playing on a radio

     or whatever, so i'm trying to stick to just Smartsound, which doesn't happen in studio 14 - not sure what THAT;S about - but i guess its back in S15, ya?  say, link me to one of your movies - i'll always sub to another

    Pinnacle user, (well, uh, it "depends").   most of mine are travelogs - it's a copyright nightmare to tape the band (not to mention lighting) and put those up.

    You have the choice to allow embeding or not. Don't think it stops the advertising coming back to you, but I'm not sure.

    Re: OVER 5000 Views - Why?

    OK! - discovered one of those - i guess i don't care if people embed, but i found one that was on BING, which i don't use much - so, I see what you mean, but i guess it all goes to more views, although

    i have a spot where it jumped like 1000 hits in one week, and there's no little letter there, saying what is was that did it...oh well..

    What I liked about your video...other than the cuteness of the animals involved...was your willingness to "cut the crap".
    Instead of going home-movies styled, where you show EVERYTHING you video-taped, you did a montage kinda thing.  
    Getting to the good stuff instead of wasting peoples' time. :)

    Hey, thanks for watching and commenting - actually, we have a "home" version of this movie, about 40-50 minutes in length, with "ALL" the stuff (mostly family conversations, etc)-

    we developed a concept of our "home" movie, and then make a "trailer" out of it, just like the big guys do, and it's the trailer that gets posted on youtube - fairly easy to do, once you

    get used to "slash and burn" or "scrap and toss" -  sometimes i can get a 45 minute movie down to about 5 minutes or so - takes a month to tweak it - including the sound track, which

    we try to keep original, but since it's smartsound, it DOES change a bit....all part of the fun!
