Revver Launches Video Responses

Revver is now facilitating video responses, a vehicle that helped propel YouTube’s community. The feature allows a  viewer to react to a video via their own and attach it similarly to a comment. HappySlip, a prominent YouTuber who powers her website’s videos via Revver, announced the feature.

The company is also now offering pre-roll ads and CPM (pay by impression) to creators. I began in online video using Revver, and have slipped until recently in my YouTube obsession. But I’m back, and plan to release some of my content uniquely via Revver and some in advance of my YouTube posts. Here’s the collection. Here is the RSS feed of the posts.

  1. I’m confused. I can’t find any mention of this in the Revver blog or on the Revver home page or any way to do this for MY Revver videos….oh wait, this is not a universal service for everyone? Another Youtuberism just for pretty people?

  2. That’s great news, I’ve held off uploading a number of my videos there because they specifically ask for viewers’ comments in the vid. Maybe I’ll pose a question or ask others to share their experiences… very difficult to do that if they can’t leave a response/comment. =)

  3. Honestly, apart from a few video views, I’ve never really messed with Revver. Maybe I’ll have to check it out… o’course I still haven’t gotten around to posting anything at Metacafe although I promised someone there I would weeks ago. I’m so disorganized! I should take a week off YouTube to catch up on things. Oh… wait…

  4. CM- since you’re dark on YouTube I’d toss my clips on Revver/Metacafe using one of the universal uploaders. Little risk other than time. That being said, Metacafe’s audience decides what makes money/gets seen. And Revver itself has few direct viewers, so you either need to find your own audience or hope that a site embedding Revver shows you some love. I created CubeBreak to deal with this.

  5. Hey guys, Alex from Revver here. Christine is helping us out by beta testing this new feature for us. It will definitely be available to everyone as soon as we’re sure it’s ready for release.

  6. Marquisdejolie,

    Sorry for the confusion – we’ve actually had video responses as an API feature for a few months (a little advertised addition called references on the video.find method), but we’re going to be releasing an exciting offering that manages all this for you (and does a bit more).

    HappySlip is using is a pre-release version of this API-driven tool – we’re going to be releasing it to the general public after we update a few things in response to feedback we’ve received and put it through a bit more testing.

    It’s definitely not a Youtuberism – that goes pretty strongly against our grain – we just needed to keep the initial group small enough that the support requirements didn’t delay development and release. We’ve built our API and tools to be as egalitarian as possible (sometimes to our own detriment), just give us a little time to make sure it’s all ready.

    and Nalts,

    – YAY! I could not be more thrilled, I’ve missed you :). Let me know if I can help in any way,
