Professional use of dedicated services and webstreaming possibilities via Youtube
Since we don't have to develop everything from zero but rather put things together to form a coherent format, I suggest we use the streaming services of YouTube. This could have several advantages in exploring the possibilities and boundaries we should impose like the metadata of the video's which is usefull for automated handling, authenticity requirements, locality detection and ofcourse exposure for a new way of professional citizen politics.
If you see privacy as the n°1 issue, I do agree if possible we should develop our own server - and in a format for 'vlaanderen' it should be possible to get funding for this project too - but for now it remains a testing application in the public domain.
Could you help me sum up the pro's and con's of using YouTube as videoserver for the whole project ?
