Replacing YouTube Videos

Postby rockpapercynic » Mon Aug 10, 2009 3:03 pm

Hey friends!

So basically, I've remastered the YouTube videos to be much louder. The catch is, since I had to alter the file to do so, I can't just re-upload the new video over the old video. I'd either have to upload the new video and delete the old, or keep redundant (confusing) videos in my videos section. Deleting the old video loses people's comments/contributions (ego food), but also their ratings. By having ratings/views, it's easier to get more ratings/views, and sharing my music is what I'm interested in. Then again,sharing music that can't be heard isn't much good either.

AudioSwap will only let me swap in other people's tracks, so it's not useful unless I want Raising Cain to feature Lady Gaga.

So, which of the videos on YouTube do you think REALLY need replacing, and which do you think are fine the way they are. Black Ship and One Shell, for instance, are fairly loud, while Raising Cain is ridiculously quiet.

Thoughts? Advice? Creative solutions?

Thanks, guys!

I am in FULL support of a Pete/Lady(or is she?) Gaga mash up.

Since, as you pointed out, Raising Cain is rediculously quiet, then replacing it for a louder version would be helpful, but, if I recall correctly, it is also your most viewed video, so it's your call.

Maybe a devious advertising scheme would help.
Oh hey Jesus, sorry about Thursday.

Don't replace it! Where would all the views go? As a large contributor to the 2,217 view count, I'd feel like the aunt who helped you amass your large collection of Beanie Babies YakBacks over the years, only to have you give them away in a garbage bag to the Salvation Army just because the new ones... sounded... better...

I feel that they're all loud enough. People can always turn up the volume if they want to.

O_o What a revolutionary idea.

But yes, I am inclined to agree. I don't really have a problem with the volume of Raising Cain, but it's your call.

Also, Ambition.......rediculously, or bluediculously?
