2.9h FAO and YouTube
YouTube is a video sharing Web site where users can upload, view and share short videos or multimedia presentations. Unregistered users can view most videos on the site, while registered users can also upload videos.
Viewers' comments and a number of related videos (determined automatically on the basis of title, tags and ownership) appear on screen next to each video. Each video is also accompanied by the HTML code required to link to the video and/or embed it within another Web page (unless the video owner chooses to disable the embedding feature).
An example of an FAO Web page with an embedded YouTube video:
A YouTube channel is a single Web page where users can view the channel owner's public videos, favourites, bulletins, comments, subscribers and video log. A channel also presents related YouTube videos and provides a forum for people to connect with the channel owner. FAO currently has two corporate YouTube channels, soon to be consolidated to two:
Creation of additional channels (e.g. by decentralized offices, by headquarters units) on YouTube (as well as other video upload sites such as Vimeo, Blip.tv) is currently not allowed. If you wish to share FAO content via YouTube, please write to OCC.
All uploaded material must belong to FAO, i.e. be part of FAO's intellectual property. In addition, the material that is uploaded to the FAO YouTube channels must be of adequate quality to be relevant to the activities of the Organization and reflect positively on the Organization.
