Time for some updates:
There’s a set of rules in place as to which videos I deem fit for inclusion in pinballvideos.com, which I came up with mostly to avoid having to make difficult decisions all the time. They are not set in stone, and I’ll gladly make common sense exceptions, as I did with some games in the Pinburgh 2015 broadcast.
That said, I’ve decided to extend those rules a bit. I hope the benefits of having some more interesting material available will outweigh the potential drawbacks:
1.) For games that haven’t gotten much (or any) coverage yet, I’ll include formats I previously said don’t quite fit with what I’m doing here. I’ll put those into the “Gameplay” event category for now, but the categorization system could definitely need an overhaul.
- In particular, this means that I added some Dead Flip videos (thanks @Mar for the suggestion) so I can feature KISS and Game of Thrones.
2.) Tournament footage still needs commentary in order to be fit for pinballvideos.com, but the English only restriction is gone. Non-English videos will have a language flag, so you’ll know what you’re getting into. I won’t add any language filtering for now, but I might do that once there’s more international content.
There has already been some sneaky Italian commentary in PAPA 18, but to officially get this going, I added two more things:
The Austrian Pinball Open 2015, where we had our first try at broadcasting a tournament. This might be particularly interesting, because it features three games on Full Throttle commentated by Andrew Heighway himself.
One little change for non-English content: If you want your footage to be added to pinballvideos, I might ask you to provide the game start times and player names yourself. For all the videos I tagged myself, I tried my best to consider the commentary track when choosing the start times, like cut in a bit earlier if there’s some interesting commentary about the machine setup or rules before the game. I simply can’t do that when I don’t speak the language.
As always, any feedback welcome, and if you’ve got some cool non-English tournament footage you’d like to see on pinballvideos.com, let me know.
