Vimeo and YouTube are officially battling it out for video quality supremacy on the Internet. YouTube is clearly the winner as far as audience goes, but, for a long time Vimeo has had better quality and embedding-but, not anymore. A few weeks ago some figured out you could hack YouTube’s embed code to the high quality. YouTube was testing these features, however, they are now official and released. For any video that is uploaded in high enough quality you can embed them in HD. Some are saying the the quality is better than Vimeo becuase of the coded YouTube uses is superior (YouTube is using a h.264 while Vimeo uses a flash encoder). Here’s a music video that we worked on with DPO productions-Butch Walker’s The Weight of Her starring Taryn Manning. Hope you enjoy.

Butch Walker Music Video

November 1, 2008

We helped out our friends at DPO Productions shoot a music video for Butch Walker earlier this week out in Joshua Tree. The shoot was great and it turned out really well. Butch is a Grammy winner for song writing and produces for acts like Avril Levine and P!nk. We are editing the video now and will post it when we’re done.
