Video Links

Most of the newspaper Website ( videos are on Vimeo.  Most of the videos are short community-oriented vids shot with Flip and GoPro film cameras and edited in iMovie or Final Cut Pro. The majority of our videos concern breaking news, so they are designed for simplicity and speed in editing/uploading. I often use these examples for teaching new reporters, interns, and in the classroom. We have experienced problems with YouTube and feel that Vimeo has higher quality and fewer problems on our BLOX CMS system:
