02 June 2008 A Single Frame
During this discussion a point was raised regarding the effective use of preview images on YouTube. Generally a hot female or a cleavage shot tended to give your video a higher view count. I also learnt, that this preview image is selected from the exact middle of your video.
Now take a look at Episode #1 of a fairly quirky series called Zeroes…
The frame is of a blonde cheerleader. The same one as the preview. This user has gone to the effort of placing a frame in the middle of the content just to get a certain preview image.
Interesting. How long do you think until this becomes a common practice?
