Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

YouTube, or Vimeo


YouTube started this online movie self-publishing phenomena and lets face it, YouTube is 95 % crass rubbish.

I deleted my movies from You Tube, a year or so ago, because the quality of playback was poor, and because Vimeo was introduced to me, and I found that Vimeo had an ambitious standard in online playback, and  were cool, and attracted quality customers, many of whom were apparently sourced from creative film schools from around the world. It was a leap of faith.

So what went wrong with Vimeo?

I have no problem with the content of Vimeo, but I have now grown frustrated with the playback of all of my films on Vimeo. The very nice people at Vimeo have recognised the problem and have allowed Vimeo subscribers to vent their frustration on the discussion forums that they host. I want Vimeo to succeed but enough is enough.

Because of this I have looked again at YouTube, and I was surprised by improved quality of playback, that I found.

Perhaps YouTube have the advantage of scale and market share that has enabled them to improve performance over time. The quality of the movies that are available to the public continues to be awful, but the quality of the means by which it is delivered has undoubtedly improved and has now become the new standard, Nevertheless YouTube remains poor by  my expectations and also with the early ambitions set by Vimeo.

Vimeo has a technical problem. Please fix it and I will be back.

As a Vimeo Pro, I have actually paid hard cash to Vimeo and to YouTube not a penny.

“You get what you pay for,” Not in my case.
