Most of the videos I have used on the DEBATE VIDEO site http://debatevideoblog.blogspot.com/ have been Google Videos http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=Alfred+Snider&emb=0&aq=f# but now that Google Video is not accepting anymore uploads we have switched to Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/videos/search:Alfred%20Snider and it seems to be working very well.
Traffic is fairly good at Google and picking up at Vimeo.
The most viewed Google Video is the finals from Cork Worlds with 29,000 views, and the least viewed is one about why I personally joined debate with 11 views. The rest of the 181 videos on Google are somewhere in between.
The Vimeo videos are picking up now, with 74 videos posted they are getting about 500-600 views a week, which is pretty good. The top video is a WUDC debate from last spring about state funding of art with 943 views and the least watched of the 74 is a lecture about third speeches in the WSDC format starring Debbie Newman at 1 view. Wow, Debbie Newman is an incredible lecturer and debate teacher, so I am sure it will pep up.
No real indication of how many plays we are getting through the other systems, like the general video file archive at http://www.uvm.edu/~debate/watch/?C=M;O=D where there seems to be a lot of traffic but we do not have a counter there and I am told cannot install one.
We are glad and proud to be offering so many debate related videos and have so many people watch them.

The Final Round at WUDC 2009 in Cork was videotaped and put on the Debate Video Blog as well as the Global Debate Blog. The video is above if you are interested.
It has now been watched almost 19,000 times in two weeks.
That is a lot of viewing from all over the world.
Thanks to Art Ward and the WUDC crew who made it possible and easy for me to video the debate. They gave me a prime spot for my camera and all the cooperation they could.
As a result, thousands of people all over the world have been able to watch this video.

The stories are global, and the readership is global as well. Even in a down time in the debate cycle such as this, a calm following WUDC activity, the world is tuning in. Here is a geographic listy of visitors in the last 24 hours:
United States [33%]
United Kingdom [11%]
Hong Kong S.A.R., China [2%]
Saudi Arabia [1%]
