Streaming is a very cool feature we have these days. My television viewing habits have leaned towards streaming for a few years now. I stream all my videos from Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. Gone are the days of cable for me.
Online video services such as Vimeo have been allowing viewers to stream their videos. When completing a long version wedding video, I can upload the entire video to Vimeo. Place the video as private and send it to the newlyweds. They can download it to their computer, usb drives and take it with them. The cool thing about having your video online is that you can send it to family and friends who did have the opportunity to make the wedding. The days of incompatible dvd and blurays are gone.
By having your wedding video online, you can share it with whoever you want and they do not need to have a bluray or a dvd player to watch. If you know you’ll be going to a family members house and they have a smart tv that has the ability to play usb, you can download the video to a usb device and play it. The options for this are much more than just having a bluray or dvd. What happens if a family member wants a copy? Do you know how to burn a bluray or dvd?
But blurays and dvds have chapters, well yours can too. In the description of the video I place chapters for you to skip certain parts of the video. Down below is an example of chapters being used for a wedding promotional piece. Just scroll down and click the read more. After you have done that you will see a list like this:
Courtney’s father gives speech 0:00

Andrea and Chris’ Pastor 0:26
Ryan’s groomsman’s speech 0:38
