Arrow How long is too long ?

VIDEOS DAMMIT ... I'm talking about Disc Golf Videos.

So what is your attention span while watching youtube vids of tournaments?

Also, Do you like commentary or no commentary while watching .....


I just got through editing the Charlie Vettiner Open and have 44 minutes with no commentary. I'm thinking it's a bit long but then again I have no problem watching videos that long on youtube so I thought I'd ask ... so ?

That's fine. Without commentary, anything up to an hour is okay. If it's going to be longer you might wanna split it to front/back 9 or do commentary.

My YT attention span is about 5 minutes for most anything, but I think cutting a 44 minute video into nine pieces to accommodate that is overkill.

I don't mind 45 minutes if it's a good course with big name pros and filmed well.

depends. Good commentary, good footage and I can last an hour.

Bad video, no/or stupid commentary and I don't last five minutes. Too many videos to watch to deal with crap.

Most DG rounds can be nicely edited to 30 minutes. I would try to make it as short as possible while still having every shot in there.

DGM and McFly produce some quality videos ranging from 30 minutes to 1hr +/- I enjoy both of those

I prefer not seeing every shot. It gets old fast watching four or five pros literally drop in shots one after another.

McFly has perfected the no-drop-ins video.

Umm... ahh... what was the question again?

Seriously, It all depends on the mood I'm in and the time I have available. If it's a National or World event I may take the time to watch an hour or so. If it's smaller still little 2 or 3 minute hi-lights is all I need. And I like informative commentary stuff like player background or stats maybe and what disc they just threw if it can be identified.
