I’ve been posting my videos in VideoPress – it’s handy to have it integrated with WordPress.com and I thought that it’d be nicely integrated.
I didn’t expect massive traffic for my videos, really I’m just experimenting. It’s a nice way to share some music and visuals that are harder to capture in stills. I’ve posted a few videos and now as I’m monitoring the WordPress reader more closely, I noticed :
1. They don’t include my featured image.
2. They don’t include the player in the reader.
This is what my video looks like in the reader :
Hmmm, I wonder which one is more likely to get clicked on …
So I’m going to investigate YouTube, and start posting there instead. I mean really, demoting videos posted in their own VideoPress, doesn’t make any sense ?????
VideoPress pluses – integrated into WordPress, quite fast to upload and seems to play reasonably well.
VideoPress minuses – It seems the reader integration doesn’t work properly. YouTube probably has better integration into Google search, so better for SEO.
