I have officially dumped YouTube. He was old, played out, and everyone got a piece of him. I moved on to a player that’s shiny and new. His name is Viddler.
I discovered Viddler from Demo Girl’s screencast on ididwork and didn’t think much of the player until I saw Viddler’s president, Rob Sandie, showcasing how you can customize your player.
We’re talking about customizing the shade and color of your player, a custom logo, and yes—you can even decide where your videos link to!
I’m all for customization and Viddler just took it to the next level. Here’s my custom logo in a recent video did for my company called “Sharing is Easy“. It’s not as cool as Rob’s. You won’t see a guy dancing in the background but it’s a start. 🙂
For an awesome step by step tutorial on how to customize your Viddler player, check out Alex Carpenter’s blog. He even has screenshots of other custom logos by Viddler creators.
thanks for the nice tip. With YouTube unavailable for months now in Turkey, I’ll certainly check it out!
Rock on! Glad you are finding the new features cool enough to make the switch. Thanks for taking the time to do the write up!
Thanks for mentioning my site, ill return the favor!
Max Forlani—Unavailable for months? Wow, that’s pretty ridiculous. What other video website do you go to? Before YouTube, I would go to Stage6 for HD video content.
Colin Devroe—No problem! Thanks for making such a great player that’s fun to customize.
Alex Carpenter—Thanks Alex. The tutorial your wrote up was great and it was interesting to see the custom logos created by other Viddlers.
Thanks for the cheer up Steph:)
