Choices: Competition, or war?
I don’t upload videos to YouTube too often, but for the past three days I have been trying to do just that. Never had a problem before, but this time nothing would upload. Didn’t matter how long the video was, what format it was in, what time of day I tried…. The video would just hang there at 0% upload.
This morning I decided to find an answer to my problem. The YouTube help was, well, no help at all….
Except that it had several recommendations for which browsers to use to upload videos. I use Internet Explorer 9, so I did everything to IE 9 that YouTube recommended.
Survey says, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
Then it hit me: YouTube is owned by Google, and Google has a browser called Chrome. I thought to myself, “Self, what if Google wants me to use their Chrome brower instead of IE 9, Firefox, etc.?”
So Self downloaded Chrome, making sure to read all the default checkboxes because Self doesn’t like Chrome and doesn’t want it taking over Self’s computer and Internet experience. Even then, Chrome decided to pin itself to my IE task bar. Bad, bad, bad….
Once Self downloaded and installed Chrome, Self went back to YouTube to try to upload mp4 videos. Care to guess what happened?
I don’t mind having competition…. Choices are good, but not when one is forced to choose. I guess I could choose not to use YouTube or Google.
My opinion of this tactic:
SNIPPETS are short posts about anything and everything.
Each SNIPPETS will have at leasst one picture.
After all, this is Russel Ray Photos.
