WHY DO I NEED TO REGISTER?
You need to register so that you can upload videos and clips from your computer, mobile phone or tablet. You also need to be registered if you want to comment, like or share any of the videos and clips with your colleagues and friends.
CAN I UPLOAD MY OWN VIDEOS?
Yes! See the information about uploading videos. Once uploaded on Agtube, your video will not become immediately accessible on the website until moderated and approved.
WHY DO YOU LIMIT THE LENGTH OF VIDEOS?
We have limited the length to allow more videos on the site and to benefit users with slower connections. If your programme is longer you can always divide it into separate parts. Remember that for everyone, time is a precious commodity. It is always better to put across information in a concise way.
WHY DO THE VIDEOS TAKE A LONG TIME TO START?
If you have a slow internet connection, through dial-up or non-3G, you will be able to see streaming video, but the quality will not be very good. The service tries to give you the best quality video streaming based on the speed of your connection and the capacity of your computer or mobile phone. This can vary based on the time of the day and the number of other users trying to use the network.
WHAT SUBJECTS ARE IN THE VIDEOS?
The videos and clips are divided into 15 key subject areas. You can also search for specific topics in the ‘Search’ box at the top of the website.
HOW CAN I FIND VIDEOS IN A SPECIFIC LANGUAGE?
You can search for videos and clips in a specific language by using the ‘select language’ dropdown menu at the top of the webpage.
CAN I BE PART OF YOUR PROJECT?
Agtube is not a project, but if you are involved in agriculture and rural development and have a keen interest in video, please do register and use the site. You will be able to interact with the Agtube community. You can always get in touch with us at: email@example.com
CAN AGTUBE HELP ME BUY VIDEO EQUIPMENT?
No, we can't. Various technical forums exist on the internet and we have some tips on the website of Access Agriculture in Useful technical information.
DOES AGTUBE GIVE TECHNICAL ADVICE ON VIDEO PRODUCTION?
Agtube does not give advice. Access Agriculture can help arrange for specific technical assistance and video training courses to be provided by partner organisations.
HOW CAN I GET TRAINING TO IMPROVE THE VIDEOS I PRODUCE?
If you contact us we can put you in touch with partner organisations who can carry out training to help you improve the content and quality of your programmes. We will also use the Agtube platform to screen promising and motivated young talent. The best ones may be invited to take part in future training workshops.
