I Switched From VideoPress to YouTube

Several weeks ago I decided to stop using VideoPress (an Automattic video service) for video uploads and switched to YouTube. Here’s a quick list of reasons why:

  • Larger uploads.
  • Fewer upload failures (none yet).
  • Easier sharing.
  • Privacy options.
  • Better quality.
  • Descriptions with links and comments.
  • The channel and playlists.

The only thing I can think of that I’m losing is direct access to the original file. I couldn’t think of a single instance where I needed to go back and get my original video file though. I haven’t actually checked on YouTube, so it might be there.
