....if they would offer both the video and transcripted versions of the stories. Sometimes I'm interested to see the video and sometimes I am not (especially if I'm "working" or if I don't want my daughter to come running to the computer because she hears something). In addition, the video clips are usually preceded by an ad that you cannot skip.
Sometimes I pull up an article and read it a little at a time.
I have no issues with my connection either at home or at work.
I don't even know if my phone can shoot video. I know it can shoot (very low res) still photos.
The only videos I've posted on the web are short home video clips on our family site.
I have noticed, over the past few months, that news sites such as CNN are offering more and more video news coverage that does not include a written transcript. YouTube and user made video dominated the attention of many by the end of 2006. Main stream news is using more and more cell phone videos as their coverage for news events.
The question I have is how is the increasing use of video on the internet impacting people who use the web every day?
Do you like it or not?
Do you choose video over written news items?
Does waiting for a video item to download annoy you?
Do you feel video speeds up or slows down your internet browsing?
Does your current computer and ISP work well with web video?
Do you carry a phone that can shoot video?
Have you posted video on the web yourself?
Do you think video technology is easy or friendly for the average user of the web?
What do y'all think?
