Auto Video - Doomed? A Blessing?

Jul 19th 2010 at 2:04 PM

What I describe as auto videos, are these videos that start playing when you land on a web page. There is no such thing as a "press this button to play," the video just start loading and playing.

I have a very strong dislike for these auto videos, and I shall, of course, never buy anything from advertisers using auto videos. They often bring my computer and Internet to a standstill, and gobble up the limited amount of bandwidth I have available. There is no problem with web pages that give the visitor a choice to either play, or not play, the video. In fact, I often play such videos.

Auto videos are nevertheless, springing up like mushrooms all over the Internet. Can it be that there are actually people who can tolerate them, or actually like them? I suppose so yes, because marketing people would not use them, if they were not effective.

If you can't beat them, join them, so I shall now also try and put up an auto play video to see what happens. I plugged one in behind a text advertising system, so that people will at least realize if they click through, that they will have to hang around for a while to see what is happening.

Fine, so now I'll be able to see for myself if people actually have the patience to wait for an auto video to load behind the text advert system. (Viral Million)

What shall I do if the auto videos proof to be a roaring success? Well, I don't think I'll be enthusiastic, but what can I do? I'll have to join the club.
