Sharing Your Videos On ASBN

"If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is priceless."

Creating a video today has become so simple, anyone with a cell phone can be a film producer and with sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and now ASBN, publishing your videos for the world to see is just a click away.

But, what if your videos need to be seen by others specifically related to the Automotive Service Industry?

That's why ASBN's Video Library was created.

We've put together a video collection from a wide range of sources that focus on our needs within this industry so we can do a better job at what we like doing; serving the needs of our customers as professionals. 

As a private network, we are selective in what populates our library. Plus, it can only be accessed by our registered users, clearing the way for more precise content and eliminating the 'debris'. 

Isn't that what a reference library should be?  

As an ASBN member, you can upload your own or add interesting ones you found from other public sites. Plus, you have your own file system to manage your uploads.  This way, everyone gets to share their discoveries, the library grows and you can start cleaning out your closet of saved favorites and bookmarks.

The future is looking great.   

But, we didn't just add a video player to the site. We've opened the door for techs and businesses wanting to help other techs and businesses through Video Sharing.

So, we created a feature-rich system that is just as easy to use as it was to create the video.

User Features;

  • A beautiful HTML5 & Flash-based Responsive Video Player
  • You select the category(s) your video is best suited (let us know if we need more categories)
  • Can upload MP4, M4V, FLV, MOV, WEBM, and OGG file formats
  • Can upload YouTube URLs
  • RTMP Streaming and the ability to add HLS stream as the mobile fallback
  • Can edit/delete your own videos (your ASBN account maintains your list of contributions)
  • Comment videos
  • Rate videos

These features are just waiting for you to take advantage of so we can continue to build the library that will benefit every corner of our industry.
