Lately, I've been learning how to get video from my camera to the net with some privacy. Frankie's soccer games are coming and I don't want to have to get consent forms from all the parents (nor would they sign them if I could) to post videos of the kids - no matter how unpopular 4-5 yr old soccer is. So, I first posted a sample vid to Youtube and labeled it private. Good, I thought. Now I'll just send it to a string of emails and only a limited audience will be able to see it. Wrong. Youtube vids marked as "private" cannot be sent out with email permissions.
Jumpcut, Yahoo!'s version of a video site DOES allow this. I tried a sample Frankie greeting vid and sent it around to the family and it worked like a charm. Very cool. Streaming updates of the kid to a limited audience will follow. I should also note, the vid is hosted at Jumpcut, so the email is only a few K; won't gob up your inboxes.
