HubPages Video to Be Retired

The Era of HubPages-Hosted Video Is Coming to an End

Happy Wednesday, friends! In case you didn't catch Marina's Forum post last week, we've announced that we are officially retiring HubPages Video. In an effort to make the site run more efficiently and smoothly, we occasionally have to make the tough decision to get rid of features that are rarely used and difficult to maintain. Video didn't make the cut. Here's what to expect with the retirement of HubPages Video:

  • Hubbers can no longer create new Video Hubs.
  • Hubbers can no longer convert existing Hubs into Video Hubs.
  • Existing Video Hubs will remain as-is for the time being. We intend to come up with a way to convert them to normal Hubs eventually, but until then, they will remain intact.
  • We still encourage Hubbers to film original videos to supplement Hubs, upload them to Vimeo or YouTube, and add them using the Video Capsule.

Tips for Creating Awesome Videos

Just because HubPages Video is gone doesn't mean you can't create amazing videos to add to your Hubs. If you'd like to give it a try, here are a few tips to creating great videos your audience will love:

  • Center your subject within the frame and be sure you have good lighting.
  • Stay on topic and make your video as concise as possible.
  • Be mindful that any background noise and music are not too loud.
  • Clearly show every step of the process you are trying to illustrate.
  • Try to keep your video under 30 seconds, as viewership tends to drop off after that point.
