AviewTV promotes videos from the virtual worlds
-
Note: Because of its new terms of service, you will probably not want to produce commercially marketable videos in Second Life, because Second Life claims the right to sell your products.  I am using  Kitely for such production.

I asked  AviewTV a few questions that video-makers or video-users might ask.  Here are the answers:
-
Video maker
If I have a video on YouTube (or elsewhere) can I get it listed on Aview?
ANSWER: yes
-
How?
ANSWER: You may upload a file from computer, or an import embed from youtube, or vimeo, (fastest) or you may do an Object embed of your content, all by going to the upload button on top of every page.
-
Is there a cost?
ANSWER: no
-
How would people find my video?
ANSWER: The fastest way to locate a video is by the new search engine, which will search keywords, titles, authors. Also if recent, it will most likely be on front page being promoted. Also they may find your video in a category or in your profile.
-
Can I attach  keywords or labels?
ANSWER: yes, In your profile, you may edit your titles, tags, keywords, descriptions, mark private etc.
-
Do you use keyword  search?  How can I see a list of key words?
ANSWER: I used to have a tag cloud but it took up too much usable space, and with the search engine, we found it wasn't that much a priority.
-
Are there genre channels?  How would people find them?
ANSWER: yes, they are called categories and are found by doing  mouse over on the VIDEOS link at top of every page.
-
Does each video show up on Google search?
ANSWER: Some do, some don't. This is an area that we need to optimize and is on the to do list. The database is already optimized.
-
Can I specify use rights and prices on my listing?
ANSWER: You may place anything in your description or title or links while in edit in your profile. Most aren't aware that Aview has been in development of a complete new CMS that will enable blogging and ecommerce to your account. Thats on its way.
-
Can I set up my own channel? 
ANSWER: You may create groups and invite others to that group and they to can add videos to that group from theyre account.
-
Will AviewTV own any rights to videos I put there?
ANSWER: no
-
Do have web links to concerts you have streamed? Are they available on the web?
ANSWER: what we have streamed to web live can be found on our livestream channel http://aviewtv.com/live 
-
Can you give some specific examples of what you mean by serious exposure?
ANSWER: most all videos submitted are placed in the front page for a time to promote them, meaning they will have been seen by all that go to site. Also we promote them on most major social networks, like Twitter, Facebook.
-
In addition, AviewTV is intimately involved in many upcoming projects that will allow greater opportunity for its growing catalog to gain more exposure. More inworld events, more outreach with other organisations and more publicity for Aview participants and the machinima movement in general.
-
What are your contacts from promoting music videos?
ANSWER: Being a community project and resource sharing site, we have made connections to Directors, Producers, Event managers, and most of all the Artist themselves. Music videos specifcially are a great crossover medium that connects to music professionals, marketing and brand managers, and a wonderfully mainstream market.

Video user
If I were looking for a video with particular properties, what properties could I search for?
Length?  3 min, 5 min, 10 min ...
Free with Creative Commons license, attribution only?
Free for non-profit use?
Genre -- music, comedy, vampires...
With a reliable contact address for copyright owner.
ANSWER: Search criteria are certainly addressed on the Aview site, and as the database continues to grow, those criteria will become even further grouped.. Also, our expectations are that certain broad categories will receive special highlighting based on current promotions (ie. Hot Dance Videos, Funny Commercials, etc)
