Video: Pandora dips into video podcasts
by Josh Kimball
…and it kind of sucks! The premise is that they go behind the scenes at real-live tour venues – the first one being the California’s Canyon Club.
Checking out venues without the noise and people is cool, but:
1) the podcast has a dumb pre-roll ad by Visa
2) The video’s not embeddable, as far as I can see.
And that’s a particularly maddening combination of complaints! What’s the point of having a pre-roll ad (that stays with the video wherever it goes) if you aren’t going to set the damn thing free?Bad web practices make for a dumb waste of decent content.
