Effective Video Development for Online Sharing in the Cloud

Open Source

Videos are becoming more popular than ever. As mobile devices grow in usage and processing speeds, video watching on mobile devices is also increasing. Not surprisingly, short videos tend to be more popular than longer ones, mainly because they load faster. People who use their mobile devices to access the Internet and watch videos typically have less time during a browsing session than a general web viewer. Effective video developers must bear the following things in mind.

Keep Videos Easy to Share

A number of businesses have started allowing followers to download their videos. The best way to do this is to make sure that the video can be easily uploaded and downloaded through cloud storage venues. With the expansion of these services, more and more people are turning to cloud storage as their video storing solution, particularly when they don’t want to download it completely on their smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Check your cloud storage program to see what size videos you can upload at the max. Ideally, you should strive to keep the videos at less than two minutes, if possible.

Remember You Will Not Retain Total Control

When you use cloud storage for video sharing and distribution, you have to remember that you will not retain total control of the video. As people download the video and then upload it into their own cloud storage accounts, they will be able to access it whenever you choose. This means that if you have any updates or changes to the video, you are going to have to make a general announcement about the changes and offer the new video for download. You won’t be able to fully remove the old one. But using the cloud for video sharing is a great way to increase viewing and download options. It can work for most businesses.

Be as Descriptive as Possible

If you are planning to offer multiple videos through a cloud service, then you will need to make sure that it’s easy for people to tell the videos apart. Often times, video convertors will create generic names that include a long series of characters and numerals. These types of titles do nothing to help people tell one video from another. Instead, give them clear titles with numbers to indicate the order that they should be viewed in.

The cloud has made a lot of things easier. Cloud storage can even be used to increase the effectiveness of video distribution for your business. Your first goal needs to be to keep the videos easy to share. Cloud storage is great for individuals using mobile devices who may not want to download it to their smartphones but would still like to view the video later. Remember that you will not retain total control of the video. So long as you prepare for this, it won’t be a problem. And finally, make sure that you are as descriptive in the titles as possible so that users can quickly and easily find what they need.

Evaluating the Security of Apps Before Using Them

Resource

As the number of apps in the various app markets increases, it’s little wonder that hackers and virus developers have started looking at apps as a potential vector for virus and worm transmission. Tablet and smartphone users rarely download security apps or other programs to protect themselves, assuming that they are safe. In fact, PC World estimates that less than a tenth of all smartphone users even consider themselves to be at risk from viruses, malware, or phishing schemes. The general conception is that these devices cannot be hacked or infected, but they are actually just as vulnerable as any other device. Since apps are quite capable of transmitting viruses and malware, you need to make sure that you evaluate them before you use them.

Confirm the App Developer and Specifics

When considering the security of an app and whether it is a good one for you to be using, you should first confirm who developed it and the kind of app it is. A common tactic among hackers and virus developers is to actually create an app that looks as if it is from an official source such as a bank, a well known business, or a celebrity. You need to confirm that the app was developed by that individual or organization and the kind of app that it is. Be particularly thorough when checking out an app that will have access to your financial information.

Be Suspicious of Duplicate Apps

Not all gaming and productivity apps are as secure as they look. Poker and card games have been quite popular for virus transmission, according to Tech Crunch. The way that this particular scam works is that the scammers download the original app and then break it apart. They tweak it a little and then either modify it so that it sends files of information to the hackers or so that it uploads a virus. Fortunately, most of these hackers tend to be lazy. They don’t do much to change what the app looks like or even much of its description. If you see an app that you’re interested in but there are duplicates, then look at the one that has the most downloads and the highest ranked reviews. This app is generally the original. You may have to change your search settings to rank the apps by highest ratings or most downloads as the newest app may well be the one that was developed to transmit a virus.

Before you download an app onto your mobile device, you need to make sure that it is not going to cause problems. Virus developers and hackers like to use apps as transmissions for their own malicious programs. Your first step needs to be to confirm the app developer and specifics related to the app. You should also be suspicious of duplicate apps as these apps may be hosting the viruses and worms. Always go for the higher ranked apps when you must choose between them. This may require that you change the default search options.
