I wanted to do quick video and post it to the web using my cell phone. I thought it would be easy to take the video and then upload it from the phone to YouTube so it can be used on my Blog.
I only can take a short video with my Blackberry Bold 9700 and send the video through MMS to YouTube. The video is sent as a multimedia message to YouTube and the anyone can see your video on YouTube. After the video is uploaded to Youtube it can be link to websites and or Blogs.
The issue I have is that a MMS video is only 30 seconds and the quality is not as good as normal videos that can be taken with the Blackberry Bold 9700. A normal video can be hours long as long as you have room on your media card.
I have a few other ways to upload longer and better quality videos to YouTube. First is after taking a good quality video with the phone take my media card and use the SD adapter to upload the video from my laptop to YouTube.
Secondly is my Motorola Backflip an Android device let’s me upload videos taken with it directly to YouTube without the 30 second restriction. I am sure it has something to do with Google owning Android mobile operating system and Youtube. My first test was a 5 minute video I took waiting for the draw bridge to open. I realized later more than 2 minutes took way too long to upload directly from the cell phone.
Then I remembered using an application on my Blackberry Bold 9000. It is called Qik, this application allow you to stream the video live and the video can be an hour or more. I stopped using Qik only because it is not supported on my Blackberry Bold 9700. Qik works on many devices Android, iPhones, Windows Mobile and some models of the Blackberry.
Qik is the easiest way to put videos on the web.

Being the mobilewiseguy, this was just brought to my attention, Verizon was not going to use the wireless in there name anymore for the mobile device company, just plain Verizon.
I investigated,everything was moot, but over the last few months I did notice on all their new promotional material in the Verizon Wireless stores they did not have wireless included in their name. The name is just Verizon now on all their new material.
I suspect that Verizon might want to brand this name like at&t for all of there services they offer, or maybe Verizon is buying the stake that Vodafone has in the wireless business. That stake is very profitable and, If they did purchase back the wireless business from Vodafone they could be strapped for cash and that will slow down the build out of there new 4G LTE network.
Take note from the mobilewiseguy.
Found this update they are just changing the logo now taking off the wireless,
