Speaking of embedding, there’s always such trepidation is using the YouTube link. Will I have to swap it out in a few hours?
…unlike, say, the dudes uploading full, unedited copies of the broadcast coverage, who make no effort to minimize the impact of their video on the marketability of officially licensed offerings, cite their sources, add value beyond access, etc.
Not that it’s not awesome to be able to watch the full race—it totally is. My issue is that I seem to be *specifically* targeted by rightsholders, despite putting a fairly absurd effort into making sure my uploads meet the legal standard for Fair Use.
I cannot convey the technical disasters that befell this video. Let’s just say I have a detailed a tear-drenched iMovie bug report for Apple, and the version I uploaded to Vimeo is still transcoding six-and-a-half hours later.
