DailyMotion Feedback

I like DailyMotion. I used it yesterday to put online a silly video I made while Robert Scoble was being podcasted by Marc-O. and David.

During the process, I bumped into a few problems:

  1. By default, the video plays when you arrive on the page. I’d like an option to switch that off. It’s hugely annoying if I’m visiting the video page repeatedly to edit the description or see if somebody has replied to my comment.
  2. The tag field has a limited character length, and I hit it.
  3. In the “Blog this” part, I’d like a plain stupid option which just gives me the HTML to insert in my blog. Some of us have control issues. Flickr does that for me, and I like it.
  4. An interface to provide feedback is missing. I like the way WordPress.com does it, for example. A little feedback box which allows me to send an instant feedback message without leaving the page I’m on.

Keep on the good work! I hope somebody at DailyMotion (the somebody, probably) gets my feedback.

    Hi, I’m Nadir from Dailymotion,
    Here are the answers:
    1. This is a known issue, we’re working on it, where would you like to see the option? In your account preferences?
    2. Tags are here to synthetize information, that’s why the tag field isn’t so big.
    3. The blog this part is being improved right now, you’ll see changes soon.
    4. The feedback interface (since the beginning i think). It’s on the top left of the site.

    A dailymotion user told me about your comments, that’s why my answer wasn’t so fast.

    Regards

    Nadir

    Hi Nadir! Thanks for dropping by.

    1. Yes, in my prefs.
    4. I’d call it “feedback” instead of “contact us”. I really did look, and just didn’t see it.

    I have an issue on my other blog which I raised here:

    https://steph.wordpress.com/2006/02/05/dailymotion-feedback/

    Has to do with embedding a video. Would be neat if you could help me out on that. Thanks in advance!

    Ew, that looks ugly. I wonder if DailyMotion have an explanation for that?
