Starting in March, we’ll be switching over to Youtube for our Previews. We are still going to stick with Blip.tv for the main tutorials. I hope this makes your AEtuts+ experience more enjoyable… have a good day!

Thanks a lot! Just wondering how comes tutorials wont be published on Youtube?
YouTube has a 10 minute limit on videos, excluding most Aetuts+ tutorials.
yeah but if you upload it in parts first and then eventually you get partnership! :D than you can upload longer vids! :D so just some investment kinda thing.
Thanks a lot for this, just wondering why will tutorials not be published on Youtube also?
If YouTUBE support HTML video, albeit Beta, why not switch entirely?
Because a lot of the tutorials are over 10 minutes, and only special Partner accounts get privelages to upload more than that.
Apply for a partnership program? That allows you to mention how long the average video (Tutorial) is, and they will consider extending the maximum video time. They will probably have some advertisements, but you can have lots more customization on the YouTube page.
Well, I have seem some partners that don’t have extended length videos, and some that do. I don’t know how it works, since I am not a partner, but a lot of the vloggers I watch have that privelage, but they also have around 500,000 views the first day they put up their video… :P
I have a special account with YouTube that allows me to put up videos of unlimited length. I have some on there that are 30-40 minutes long and I don’t have to apply for anything. Its called a directors status. Look into that and see what you come up with.
Never really had an issue with any of the videos you guys provided.
Love AETuts and all the contributors for making it what it is.
Why would anyone have asked for this…. youtube is horrible. They HAVE made improvements lately and it should be getting better, but I wish the whole internet ran on Blip.tv (well vimeo really…). It is impossible to please everyone I suppose, haha.
The previews on Blip.TV are always really slow and choppy I’m glad that the previews are going to be on Youtube…
I never saw anyone really asking specifically youtube – they just didn’t want blip.tv.
I’ll take your word for it. Either way, great site and you guys are always working to improve it!
YouTube isn’t horrible, it has Unlimited HD, unlike others; though it is a minor difference.
And I have had the error bug on YT. But, overall, I find that it’s okay.
4K if you like xD
Personaly Youtube is the best, the befering is faster, And Im having issues with blip.tv. I just dont see the point. Keep one of them… Not one for preview and one more for the tutorials… It’s pointless…
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
Um, BlipTV might be better quality but it buffers horribly and the player is insanely glitchy. YouTube is reliable, if your just looking at the preview to see how the final effect looks it doesn’t matter if its top notch HD. If your trying to stare at tiny numbers on YT HD then I’d understand your problem. But there is no issue with this, it’s way better.
I love you guys, I hope we switch the tutorials soon too!
I’m with Dustin on this. YouTube has horrible quality issues, not to mention an insane user agreement. I guess people aren’t willing to pay for quality HD from Vimeo.
I could take or leave Blip.tv, but YouTube is a big step down. To reiterate Dustin, who would ask for YouTube?
Vimeo does not allow any commercial videos, or videos embedded on any commercial sites.
That’s correct. We used to host with Vimeo and they asked us to take down *all* our tutorials because we display advertising and have a Plus program. That was a huge pain in the butt :-P
Lol, that is a crazy requirement for Vimeo, hopefully if someone can get a petition going they can change that. I can’t see why they should have that sort of ruling.
man… people are never happy.
As long as things play well… I am stoked.
The reason we switched to Youtube for the previews is mainly because of the replayability. Blip, thought good quality, is quite weak with it’s controls…. Replay only works a quarter of the time and scrubbing is painful. With Youtube, it’ll be a quick load and a quick re-watch if you miss something. The reasons we’re not switching tutorials to Youtube are that Blip allows you to upload and schedule releases to occur at specified later dates (huge workflow plus as editor!) There are also limitations to the length of the uploaded content. Lastly, when Youtube plays ads, unless we’re partners with them (which we’re not yet)… we don’t see any return. Blip, on the other hand, will compensate us for the views to help pay for additional tutorials to be posted…. everything costs money and we do our best so absorb it, but if it wasn’t for the little things like ads and COUGH COUGH… the Plus program, this website couldn’t exist.
Makes sense! Thanks for taking the time to explain, I REALLY do appreciate it!!
you tube’s firewalled at work… this sucks
Even though the preview will be embedded via Youtube, you can still download it from blip… or even go to our channel on blip and view it there.
youtube is gross nasty.
It’s an improvement, no doubt about it. Maybe youtube is not perfect, but the complains to blip.tv were massive and you guys paid attention to them, which is great.
There is no way to keep everyone happy, but you tried.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! We Can’t See YouTube Videoes… We Are In IRAN and It’s Locked… HHHHHHHHHHEeeeeeeeeeeeey But Tnx But For Bliptv….
youtube is blocked? that’s awful.
Buy a VPN service, it’s worth it
You can still download the previews from Blip.tv – look for the link on tutorial posts.
Thank you so much. Its been quite a pain trying to watch the Previews
Thanks guys! The Blip previews were painful indeed.
That is the perfect set up. Too many times have I gone to load a preview, watched a few seconds that loaded and decided it was good enough; then loaded the entire tutorial before realising it wasn’t what I was looking for.
YouTube for previews because it’s quick and easy, blip for the tutorial because its higher definition and can load more than 10 minutes. Genius!
great with a better video player!! :)
DAMN IT… WHAT WILL I COMPLAINT ABOUT NOW? : )
Great … Now lets see if youtube will work well .
I hope so.. =)
Just my two cents but wouldn’t Vimeo be the best option for previews? It has really good HD – better than Youtube, which in my opinion is quite gritty and judders at times – and is flexible.
Either way, THANK YOU for getting rid of that awful blip.tv viewer for the previews! Every time you wanted to replay the video it would not work and you’d have to reload the page, so this is good news either way.
I’ve been using this site for a few months now and I have to say it’s great to have so much cool free content which is always updated – keep up the good work, there are grateful people out there :D
Hi inertiat, Vimeo doesn’t allow their videos to be displayed on any ‘commercial’ site. We have some ads and a Plus program, so they’ve said we aren’t allowed.
Awesome. I think you guys should consider applying for the parnership program…
Youtube is a lot easier to use than blip.tv.
Keep up the good work Kai
1+ vimeo, best quality.
+1 for vimeo. They have the best quality.
Well… if you use YouTube…there goes a few countries on your list of viewers and potential viewers…
On that same note… I believe there are work arounds
hey how about uploading them in vimeo?they r the best players…………
There is a weekly upload limit and we’re trying to keep costs down with hope of delivering more content.
Vimeo also doesn’t allow its content to be delivered on commercial sites.
How about compressing the video files for download ? without any visible quality loss that is , can ?
How about WMV ? WMV – 30 minutes = 60 mb FLV – 8 MINUTES = 60 MB ??
I think this is waaaaaaaay better. Thanks
Thats what we want :) Viva la revolucion!!!
THANK YOU!!!!! I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER EVER HAD A CLEAN PREVIEW PLAYBACK ON THIS SITE. NEVER EVER. EVER. AND TO ANYONE MAKING TUTORIALS (EVER), PLEASE CHECK FOR ANY YOUTUBE HD STANDARDS. BEST OF LUCK, AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK (EVERyone)!!
Vimeo would be better! But youtube is good.
This means I won’t be able to check the previews at work anymore! :(
