Video Sharing and Multimedia

Video and multimedia sharing, either public or private, is the uploading and publishing of video and other multimedia for the purpose of sharing with other people.  A hosting service allows registered users, either for free or fee-based, to upload, publish and sharing links to their videos and other multimedia. 

 

Mass market availability of camera cell photos and other digital / audio recording devices have greatly increased the demand for web hosting of user-generated content.  Hosting services such as YouTube cater to the increasing demand for user-generated content.  Municipal government can take advantage of alternative distribution channels to increase their brand awareness and foster information sharing. 

 

Example:

Virginia.gov on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/user/Virginiagovernment

 

The Commonwealth of Virginia is using a YouTube channel as an alternative delivery method to promote the state by providing interesting videos.  The channel content ranges from videos of speeches by the governor to Chesapeake Bay crabs.
