Any generic analysis will also be deleted.  Analysis before examples is premature.  Once there are sufficient media-info-examples, and hopefully a simple/clean listing of [[media-info-formats]], we'll hopefully start a [[media-info-brainstorming]] page to do aggregate analysis of the examples.

== Examples ==

Because the hMedia became a task so big that it seems impossible to make it "simple and minimal" discussions started on splitting them by media type.

=== Overall Notes About Examples ===
 +
These examples are organized into a short list of top level media categories, in the hopes that it will be easier to determine if there are media specific publishing behaviors, in addition to common behaviors across multiple types of media.  Some may be subcategorized and distinguished by whether it was published by an individual publisher or a service:
 +
* [[media-info-examples#Audio|Audio]] (Speech, Music)
 +
* [[media-info-examples#Video|Video]]
 +
* [[media-info-examples#Photos|Photos]]
 +
 
 +
The numbers after some of the examples' descriptions are based on numbers found pulling in media records at Dabble.  Others may have higher numbers and would be encouraged to restate them if that's true.

Publication of audio speeches on blogs is often called "podcasting".  In essence though, it is simply audio speech publishing. Quotes of audio files are beginning to appear, and publishers are putting up files with links to other audio files they've quoted from.  Most audio appears to often have the same base elements as video and photos, with the exception of quotes.

Publication of video on blogs often goes by "videoblogging", "vlogging", "VODcasting", or "video podcasting". The typical process involves publishing a direct link to the video file within the blog entry. The blog entry can, but does not have to, include an embedded video player.  *Many videos include a thumbnail jpg which is clickable to the media object and player.*  Some  video includes links to those other source videos, photos and audio that have been quoted.  Most videos have the same base elements as photos and audio, with the exception of quotes.

=== Photos ===
 +
* A few photos online have region annotation and quoting.  But as tools are developed that are usable for mass publishers, this will likely increase.
 +
* Many videos have thumbnails that are jpgs, and are effectivly quotes of the video.
 +
* Many videos use pictures and therefore the pictures themselves are quotes from the video.
 +
* Most photos have the same elements as videos and audio, including quotes that are derived from the original photo.

 +
Mary Hodder:
 +
* We are finding at Dabble as we look at millions of user generated media records, that almost all have html and/or media urls, titles, uploader or creator, and at least a default licensing of Copyright. Most have tags whose functionality is made available through the hosting service (the richer the media, the more likely tagging goes toward 100% of the items), thumbnail URL(s), publishing date, and about 25% have quoting information of some sort (quotes of video or audio, and region quotes of photos).
 +
* Tags apparently appear at the upload point on 61% of photos in Flickr, and within a short period, 80+% have tags.  12% of users in Flickr apparently tag photos other than their own.

* There is an increasing number of sites that link to different methods of acquiring content displayed on a web page. These may include links to high-quality, or full versins of the media being described on the page. The various options include: free, streaming with ads, one-time purchase, and rental.
-
*** Direct link to the video file
+
* Summaries, long descriptions and reviews are also prevalent in some of the content.
-
*** Clickable thumbnail image/screen capture of the video
+
-
*** Contextual information about the video (title, description, etc) is usually contained in the surrounding blog entry

+
* We should attempt to support the basic information on sites that have been operational for years such as IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes among others. These sites tend to have very detailed information on all things related to video and TV - other sites will follow their lead because their meta-data seems to be the most complete on the web - thus making every other site contain a sub-set of their meta-data.

Media Info Examples

Contents

Introduction

Examples of what people actually publish on the Web when discussing, linking to, referring to media. This is focused predominantly on time based media such as audio and video, but may consider aspects of static media as well such as still images.

Emphasis on Practical, Simple, and Minimal

Since all previous known attempts at this problem area have ended up quite complex and over-designed, this attempt will place simplicity and minimalism first and foremost.

Thus for now, this document is deliberately restricted to examples that are:

Any examples added which do not conform to these requirements will be deleted.

Any generic analysis will also be deleted. Analysis before examples is premature. Once there are sufficient media-info-examples, and hopefully a simple/clean listing of media-info-formats, we'll hopefully start a media-info-brainstorming page to do aggregate analysis of the examples.

Note on proposals

Because the hMedia became a task so big that it seems impossible to make it "simple and minimal" discussions started on splitting them by media type.

see: audio-info-brainstorming

Real World Examples

Overall Notes About Examples

These examples are organized into a short list of top level media categories, in the hopes that it will be easier to determine if there are media specific publishing behaviors, in addition to common behaviors across multiple types of media. Some may be subcategorized and distinguished by whether it was published by an individual publisher or a service:

The numbers after some of the examples' descriptions are based on numbers found pulling in media records at Dabble. Others may have higher numbers and would be encouraged to restate them if that's true.

Audio

Speech

Publication of audio speeches on blogs is often called "podcasting". In essence though, it is simply audio speech publishing. Quotes of audio files are beginning to appear, and publishers are putting up files with links to other audio files they've quoted from. Most audio appears to often have the same base elements as video and photos, with the exception of quotes.

Video

Publication of video on blogs often goes by "videoblogging", "vlogging", "VODcasting", or "video podcasting". The typical process involves publishing a direct link to the video file within the blog entry. The blog entry can, but does not have to, include an embedded video player. *Many videos include a thumbnail jpg which is clickable to the media object and player.* Some video includes links to those other source videos, photos and audio that have been quoted. Most videos have the same base elements as photos and audio, with the exception of quotes.

Next Steps
