SCOM Videos

06.02.2008 · Posted in Flickr, Patron Services, Training, Video, YouTube

MRRL now has a Self Checkout Machine (SCOM) and staff made videos to help patrons understand how to use it. I got a hold of them and put them on both MRRL’s Flickr and Youtube accounts. The flickr video is so much clearer, of course we’re paying for a pro account, but I can’t see why we’d bother with YouTube anymore. Am I missing something? What do you think?

  1. For something like this, Flickr is a natural, but isn’t it just limited to 90 seconds of video? That would be the kicker for me – especially if we plan to get into posting video of events at the library!

  2. Robin is right, what I’m missing is the 90 second limit. But the quality on Flickr is rockin’ and it means people only need to go one place for pictures and videos. Let’s hope that part changes, since it’s still a new service I’m not giving up hope! :)

  3. So true! If the video “experiment” is a success, maybe they’ll expand it – at which point it would seem that YouTube would be superfluous!

  4. Just discovered you can only upload video if you have a pro account :(
