The Dark Side of AutoPlay Video from New Media Interchange by Douglas E. Welch

On a much darker side of new media, this week, many users of social media were forced to watch the murder of 2 television news workers. How could thousands of people be forced to watch something so gruesome? Through the technology of autoplay  video that has been so rampantly pushed by many of the powerhouses of social media including Twitter and Facebook.

For myself, one of the chief tenants in my online life is that I get to chose what stories, what pictures, what video comes into my life. I chose who I follow on social media and engage, regularly and deeply in what I call Social Media Self Preservation. With the advent of autoplay video, though, I lose a large amount of control over what I bring into my new media life.

Immediately after the murder occurred, a variety of people, including the murderer himself, posted video of the even online. Anyone scrolling through their social media streams watched a video begin to play that many wish they had never seen. They didn’t seek out the video. They didn’t click through on a news story or thumbnail. It was thrown in their face regardless of their actions. Even as someone unrelated to the participants in any way, I was deeply affected by this video, as most would be. Video is terribly intimate, even at great distance. I can only imagine the horror and disgust of the families, friends and co-workers of these people, if and when this video was forced on them. I can only imagine the deep pain they felt to have their personal tragedy forced on themselves and others – and it was “forced.” The images simply appeared without any desire or action on their part or the part of countless new media users around the world.

What amazes me most, though, is how to it took something so gruesome, so abhorrent to jumpstart the conversation on how useful – and abusive — autoplay video can be. Since technology began, there has always been a question as to “Just because we CAN do something, does that mean we SHOULD do something.” Autoplay video clearly falls into that discussion. Is there any real, compelling reason that video should begin playing, with audio or without, as we scroll over it? For the average social media user, I would say no. There is no benefit to them at all. In fact, not requiring action on their part, takes control away from them and exposes them to content they would rather not see.

So, who benefits most from auto play video? The online services, of course. While not deeply monetized on Facebook or Twitter yet, video on those services is the next big market for advertising. Of course, advertisers want to see large numbers of viewers on videos where they place their advertisements and auto play video is a great way to increase — I might even say, inflate — the number of views of videos. Autoplay video has nothing to do with improving user experience and everything to do with improving the bottom line — no matter what the consequences, as this event has shown.

That fact is, I am amazed it took something as horrific as this to finally start the conversation about the possible problems with autoplay videos. Since it was first instituted, I have been exposed to much I would rather not have seen. This includes everything from cruel pranks to varying levels of jackassery with people getting hurt or embarrassed to gruesome videos of animal abuse and more. This type of content made me immediately recognize the flaws, and outright dangers, found in autoplay video. Haven’t we lived with live television news and live streaming to know that there are certain things that should not be shown live for the the sake of those directly involved and the psyche of those forced to watched?

To be clear, I am not talking about the censoring of this type of content, but rather simply providing an opportunity of agreement and requiring direct action on the the part of the viewer before such content is shown. Give us the opportunity to say “No” to content that we don’t wish to bring into our lives.

This is the main reason I stopped watching television news several years ago. I couldn’t easily manage what content I brought into my life each evening, so I used the only power still remaining to me — the off button. Social media services need to realize that their users still have a similar choice in their online lives. Offend them often enough. Annoy them often enough. Mentally burden them often enough and they, too, will use the off switch — the only power remaining to them.

There is so much good that new media can bring to our lives, but we must recognize and actively combat the evil it can do. There are times when we must forgo the possible monetary rewards and do the right thing. We must take the best that new media has to offer and then clearly recognize and minimize its worst. As Lincoln said, we must seek out “the better angels of our nature” in both our offline and online lives and insure we limit the evil we are forcibly exposed to. In some small way, turning off auto play video — or at least giving people the choice to turn them off — is a place to start.

Do you feel there is a danger in auto play video and how it might be abused in the future or is forced viewing of tragedies simply a part of modern life? Leave your comments on the blog, email them to nmi@3rdpass.media or send via Twitter to @NMIPodcast.

YouTube Gaming is Now Live!

YouTube launched its gaming site and app today as a competitor to industry-leader TwitchTV.

YouTube Gaming supports both live and recorded gaming video and includes a specialized web site and companion iOS and Android apps.

The web site is a bit slow today, as might be expected as everyone wants to try it out both watching and live streaming.

Youtube gaming web

One small limitation I noticed with the web version is that it doesn’t appear to support streaming of videos to my Chromecast. I assumed it would have this functionality out of the box. You can select the Chromecast icon in your browser and it appears to try to send the live video, but then exits to the generic YouTube screen on the Chromecast. The YouTube Gaming App DOES support Chromecast streaming, though, so at least there is some option. I am guessing a small bug with the web version on launch day which will hopefully be quickly remedied.

I thought YouTube Gaming would automatically follow all my gaming-related YouTube Channels, but in order to follow them on YouTube Gaming I had to “Import” my subscriptions and then click though a list to add each channel. If I had hundreds of channels I was subscribed to it might get a little tedious doing this. though.

Streaming quality looks excellent for the streams I have sampled today and, even on this busy first day, buffering of video seems to be at a minimum.

Transcript:

Do you know of any voice actors who have had successful podcasts? Well, I have one good example here, but I want to switch the question around a little bit. It is relatively easy for anyone who is already famous to have a successful podcast. As you might imagine, they already have an audience. They already have a group of people who are clamoring to hear more from them. So, a relatively famous person who has a podcast — they’re doing it for a different reason that I am giving to you. I want to reiterate with you that you need to start podcasting up front when you’re unknown, because that’s the way you can become more known. It’s the reverse of what they’re doing. They know they have an audience that they’re feeding, because they’re already somewhat famous. You are developing your audience from the ground up. So, it’s important that you get the word out there and – to harken back to the very beginning of this video — you need to tell people what you do and how well you do it and this is one way of doing it.

What people do is, you have various levels of sponsorship you list out for people — all with various benefits for each level. You’ll get a sticker. You’ll get a mention in the show. You’ll get a credit at the end of the show. You’ll get some special product or special mention or be able to come on the show or whatever, depending on your level of patronage. And you basically say that I will give that amount per month, so that the person producing the show knows that they have a relatively stable monthly income that they can basically kind of know that I have my “nut” that I need to survive each month.

We have come up  recently though — very recently — within the last 6 months or so an alternative method. It’s and alternative that harkens back not just decades, but centuries and that is the term patronage. Basically having patrons who support you to do your show. These can be individuals or companies, tends to be in the current scheme, individuals – much like a Kickstarter scheme – who basically pay a monthly fee to say “Yes. I enjoy your show. I like what you do and I want to support you in an on-going manner.” Now, one of the big sites that is set up to do this right now is called Patreon. Patreon.com. It’s a play on the word patronage and patron. I have seen several people effectively use Patreon to support their on-going podcasting, YouTube and New Media efforts.

Advertising in podcasts from New Media Q&A 2015 with Douglas E. Welch

 

 

Transcript:

I tend to prefer that type of arrangement (sponsorship) rather than kind of random advertising because, if you’re signed up with a random group of advertisers you never really know what you are going to get in your podcast and I’m always a little worried, as a producer, of getting that one ad that just offends my entire audience and destroys the listenership I have. So, I’m always a little leery of that.  I like to think that advertising is not the best way of supporting a podcast. Unfortunately, no one has really come up with a much better idea.
