If you've taken a look at our Meetings blog , you may have noticed a series of videos called "VOICES " that we've been posting all week. The videos feature quick interviews with some of the people attending the 2009 Spring Meetings  (from inside and outside the Bank) shot by simple handheld Flip Video  cameras.
Filming and producing the series was a lot of fun, but also got me thinking about video players and the decisions we make about where to upload and share our videos.
Most of you may know about the World Bank Youtube channel . Our videos posted on the Youtube channel get quite a lot of views, and the videos we upload are of high quality and well-produced.
We decided to post our VOICES series on our Vimeo account  partly because they were off-the-cuff videos with lower production values and wouldn't necessarily fit with the editorial direction of the Youtube channel.
Here's an example of one of the videos we posted to the channel:
A few of the people here at the Bank that were posting videos on Vimeo  for the first were quick to remark about its ease of use and beautiful interface. Vimeo also allows much more flexibility when it comes to embedding videos and using HD video. Youtube , on the other hand, offers a much larger community and is still the number one place people visit when they are looking for video online.
I think there's value in having both accounts, and using them for different purposes. But that's just my personal opinion.
Have you tried several types of online video services? With so many of them out there, how do you decide which ones are best suited for your target audience?
