We're very excited to finally announce the official public launch of Neoseeker's Videos section! This is a project in the works since late 2007 - you first saw the fruits of this labour when we released the VFAQs system, which allows FAQ authors to create visual FAQs and walkthroughs with embedded videos. We took the videos component of that system, created an updated video player, and then created all the neat things to go around it including comments, and a rating system a la GameGrep style. The result? A neat place for you to uploading your gaming related, and movie related videos.
Some initial features
Here's a number of things this first initial release allows you to do!
Upload your own gaming videos in high quality: videos are played back in 640x480 native resolution
We support all sorts of video upload formats, you can upload wmv, avi, mpeg, quicktime, flash videos, and many manymore!
Videos are tied to profiles, and all game profiles with videos have a dedicated video page (irrespective of platform). Check out the Battlefield: Bad Company videos page for example.
Comment on videos using the nested comment system that GameGrep uses
We have a new comments tracker to show how many comments in total you've left for videos
Future upgrades will show your comments activity right in your user profile
Rate comments up or down
Share videos in the forums with the [neovid] tag, and even share it on other sites with the sharing code. Embedded Videos all link back to the comments section so others can comment on the videos.
Rate your favourite videos, and help it achieve higher ratings.
Videos code can be embedded in GameGrep news articles.
Videos are large, and can take a long time to upload. We recommend you use the java uploader we've embedded because it lets you see a progress bar. Upload the best quality video you can but try to keep it around 100MB or smaller (the actual limit we allow is up to 250MB).
Make sure you click "Submit Video" after you upload using the java drag and drop uploader or your video is not submitted yet!
Uploaded videos will show up in the CRS after they are converted. It can take from 5-30mins for a conversion depending on the queue of videos waiting to be uploaded.
