Many video content creators want to make sure that they videos reach the largest audience possible. To achieve this they upload their videos to multiple video hosting services such as Youtube, Dailymotion, Facebook or MSN Video. Doing that manually can take quite some time. It would involve accessing the service's website, logging in, selecting the video, entering information like the title, description and tags and waiting for the upload to finish.

That's a lot of work considering that the Internet is home to hundreds of video hosting services.

TubeMogul offers an alternative. The service can be used to upload a video directly to multiple video hosting sites.

This reduces the time spend on the task tremendously. TubeMogul offers a free - but limited - uploading account that can be used for 100 video deployments per month. The free service includes video transcoding, basic cross-site analytics and social networking integration. Sufficient for users who simply want to distribute their videos to several video hosting websites.

TubeMogul supports 25 video hosting sites. Among them heavyweights such as Youtube and Facebook but also lesser known sites such as Howcast and Streetfire.

The standard video uploader supports videos of a maximum file size of 100 Megabytes and various formats including avi, mpg, flv and wmv. A big file uploader is available as well that can process videos with a maximum size of 300 Megabytes.

The title, descriptions, tags and category need to be specified only once. Only a handful of all the supported sites are available for video uploading. It is possible to spread the videos to Youtube, Dailymotion, Yahoo, Myspace, Metaface, Blip.tv, Vimeo, Facebook and i2TV. The additional sites are only available after sending TubeMogul an application to do so.

The usernames and passwords of the sites need to be entered into the video upload form. That could be a security concern for some users who prefer not to part with their login information.

TubeMogul is an interesting service for users who need to upload videos regularly to multiple video hosting websites.

    Why not make use of the mplayer.conf?

    Huh, I have never even seen this “font cache” pane; videos play at once for me, using VLC & XP SP3.

    1. Martin said on August 1, 2010 at 3:39 pm

      Mike, in theory this should have only been displayed once to you, at the very first video that you played with VLC. The time this window is displayed depends largely on the number of fonts in your font directory.

        huh, I lucked out for a change?? Amazing!!
        Apparently VLC keeps this info through version updates, but I didn’t see this message after a fresh OS install about 8 weeks ago, & a new VLC.

      Great tip, thanks a lot Kishore.

    @Kishore, I’ll try your tips, but does this mean it will no longer show subtitles either?
    I do use subtitles, but the fontcache dialog box pops up (almost) everytime I play a file.

    Could this be related to the fonts I have installed? Or if I add/remove fonts to my system?

    I’ll try to do a fresh install also, if your tips does no work. I’ll post back here later…

    @ Javier, The trick i posted will show up subtitles too. If not,Dont worry, VLC is currently sorting out this issue and the next version will be out soon.

    Try running LC with administrator privileges. That seemed to fix it for me

    I am using SMplayer 0.8.6 (64-bit) (Portable Edition) on Windows 7 x64. Even with the -nofontconfig parameter in place SMplayer still scans the fonts. Also, I have enabled normal subtitles and it is still scanning fonts before playing a video. Also, it does this every time the player opens a video after a system restart (only the fist video played).

    Does that mean that only instrumental versions of songs will be available for non-paying users?
