Hey Steve are you going to do a video podcst?  I just got the new video ipod and I'd love to have a visual as you could show game clips and other cool things in the pods cast.

Thanks :)




Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

That would be cool. Maybe a Name that Game contest, only with video clips (Though that might be too easy). However, with how long Steve's shows can get, I can only imagine how much space it'll take up!  :D

Is there any possiblility of a video podcast...it'd be a lot more interesting escpecially with betas (such as the auto assualt one, and the Rise of legends one) so we can also see steve and his inside looks at games.

Perhaps in the future, but right now it's just regular old podcasting. But I am looking into it...

Maybe you only do video podcasts for things like betas and the like; It'd be cool to have a few video podcasts, but it is nice to just put the audio one on my iPod and listen when Im running or something.

Me too as they would be well worth it as it's nice to actually see something and hear it as you get more of the senses going :)

Yeah, no offense Steve, but when I listen to your podcast I usually have it in the background as I play a game. Then I listen, but zone out and realize that what you were saying was interesting, then I go back. It would be nice to have something visual to make me more attentive.

I hope if you ever decide to do a video podcast you don't just do a video of the same content of the audio version. Usually when podcasts do this the audio version is neglected and people starts talking about things that you can only understand in the video version. Problem is if you only do a video version without neglecting the audio version it's not that interesting.

I would really prefer something like the 1up show/1up podcast for example, 2 different podcasts, one audio the other video. Each one has different contents so you don't have any of the problem above. The video has great visual content (game review would be even more interesting) and audio has all the great talking info.

Anyway, i hope you continue doing a great podcast (that's the most important thing).

thanks

If you have the video you don't really have to worry about space, now battery life, that lasts about two hours when watching videos.
And Steve, that would be cool if you did a video podcast. G4 has some good video podcasts here, http://www.g4tv.com/webexclusives/features/53051/G4_Podcast_Directory.html.

If it can hold photos, I have heard of a really weird way to watch movies. Take each frame and put it on the iPod. Then take the movies sound and sync it with the pictures. It would be really annoying to flip through hundreds or maybe thousands of pictures. I woudn't do it, because it looks tedious, but if you wanted to look in to it.

A video podcast? Well, I'd have to say it entirely depends on what can be done with it.

It would be really cool if you could show pictures of the games you are talking about, instead of just you in front of your computer. Like when you are reviewing a game, you could show some clips of the game.

I suppose you could do something similar to Gamespot's video game reviews. The way they have clips from the game/images etc, then have clips of the person talking, you could probably do something like that with each of the topics you talk about.
