Searching For "GOOD" Videos


Posted by Non-Hamster on September 12th, 2010

I know that at one time or another all of us have spent time looking for "good" videos.  Starting back in the days when VHS was new and commercially produced tapes ran for $60 and $80 each & the first video rental stores started appearing.

Suddenly there was a growing supply of video available. In just a few short years the number of titles grew WAY beyond being able to easily keep track of all of them until finally every movie made eventually came out on VHS.  Rental stores like Blockbuster appeared and made a fortune renting videos.

Then the CD-ROM appeared and soon after it, the DVD.  Again the number of titles on that media started slow but reached the point where everything was on DVD and in fact, very few release on VHS anymore.  Now that cycle is repeating itself with Blu-Ray.

Then in 2005 Youtube got started and suddenly the number of videos available began to skyrocket.  Before long it seemed like everybody that had one of those digital cameras that could record video clips was uploading stuff to youtube.  Then camcorders and webcams got cheaper and cheaper and now Youtube reports that every day there is something over 24 hours worth of video uploaded every minute.

The problem is that 99.999% of them are total absolute crap.  The youtubers that show up on the front page frequently have it easy, their videos will be seen by hundreds of thousands even if they ARE crap.  The small timer however, doesn't have it so easy.  Even if they manage to make a good video, it's still almost impossible to get those videos noticed by larger numbers of people.

And it's not getting any easier either.  That's why I started making a video series where I take the time and search for actual GOOD videos and feature them on my tinfoilchefdotcom youtube channel in a series that I call "Watching Bad Videos So You Don't Have To (WBV for short)"

I figure that by taking the time to find good videos and featuring them, I'm making it at least a little bit easier for those good videos to be found in the ocean of crap that's out there.  I hope that this gets those videos and the people who make them some more of the attention that they deserve.  Attention that will hopefully encourage them to continue making good videos.

Tonight I'm putting together the fourth edition of WBV and It's one that you don't want to miss!  I've found a youtuber that's not only making good videos, I firmly believe that this person is destined for great things and will no doubt be appearing on the front page of youtube with the popular "big youtubers" inside six months or so.  Watch my tinfoilchefdotcom youtube channel for this new episode of WBV to appear sometime Monday 9/13/10.
