I see many hubs with just photos, hardly any words, then moan about them in the forums, so before anyone points out the irony of my question, I am already aware thanks....but...
Is there any reason for me not to create a hub that is actually a collection of YouTube videos?
Here is my thinking - My sons love watching YouTube videos with me - cute stuff like kittens playing, some f1 clips, planes taking off etc etc.
Before I let them sit with me I check all the videos first to check they are appropriate.
So I was thinking of making a few collections and putting them on hubs - so I can bring up a HubPage and tell them OK - you can watch each video on this page and that's it (otherwise they would watch them all day long).
Would a video only hub get banned-I could pull together maybe 200 words by way of an intro to put on the page, plus an RSS feed to other similar hubs, some links to kids toy hubs.
Sensible answers only, not a lynching about my parenting, Ta.
But that is a sensible reply - I meant all the holier than thou forum trolls that would delight in bemoaning my lax parenting by letting sprogs sit in front of a computer.
I'll check out the TOS again and see what the wording is.
Too much tv and computers is bad for children...naughty naughty!
Seriously though, you can do this I'm sure, personal videos may not get much traffic, but that maybe not what you want, but I would do a introduction of some sort, just to be sure with video titles and stuff.
Been considering this myself, as I am running out of space on my computers and flash drives!
Wayne - that is exactly my point - I am so fed up of bookmarking them, then not being very organised and unable to find them again - or cheeky monkey sees the recommended videos down the right hand side and nags to watch those, but I don't want him to because I haven't checked them yet. So I thought a few hubs, each with a different theme would make my life easier, and some other video-fans might appreciate it too.
I have several hubs that sound similar to what you are proposing, such as my Hottest Dancers in Hollywood hub, and I don't think there's anything inherently wrong about the idea. I do my best to keep it fair use by including commentary.
Thanks Kerry - I just checked out your hub - it looks good and exactly what I am talking about. I can definitely add some commentary about each video so it won't be totally devoid of words.
With the commentary added, I think this could be fine! If you want to even try to make these more attractive from a search engine standpoint, you could package and title these as Parent-Approved Funny YouTube Videos for 7-Year-Olds or something that parents such as yourself would be searching for.
Brilliant - thanks so much Simone.
I started putting together, then got distracted with some great racing clips (no-one injured) so I will finish that hub, then crack on with something cuter.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Hi, my lenses were imported yesterday and the lenses that had YouTube videos are not showing the videos on the Hub versions. The original video module title shows on the hub, but no video. I haven't checked all of them yet, but this affects at least 8 of my hubs and I haven't found any...

I am absolutely distraught. Some of my best hubs contain youtube videos. I have found that anyone logged into hubpages can see my videos without any problem. Today my Dad happened to be looking at my hubs and said "there are no videos here". Stunned, I went onto hubpages and logged out of...

One of our goals this year is to simplify infrastructure and retire features that are seldom used. Deciding to retire something can be tough, but in the long run it is worth it. A leaner HubPages will not only perform better, but will allow us to focus our efforts on the features that are most...

I've noticed that a lot of hubs display third-party youtube videos. What's the copyright deal with youtube? I've searched the net for answers but have found conflicting reports. Most say that if the embed code is on the video, it's fair game. Is this true? I don't want to get into any trouble!

Hi. I'm hoping someone has a spare five minutes (and a good internet connection) to help me please. Because I live off the grid in the Aussie bush and use a slow and unreliable satellite internet connection, I cannot get a youtube video to load and run to the end. All I get is the first 30 seconds,...

I just made my first youtube video. It's just a slideshow but I got a new camcorder yesterday. Since I have a tourist website I'll be making videos of Disney and the other theme parks here in Orlando.I have my URL both in the beginning and end of the video. Does anyone else make youtube videos to...
