I need MANY educational video links for a CONSUMER INFORMATION web site(no need to download; just identify them).
No Plagiarism: All videos must be either in the public domain, NOT copyrighted, or identified as freeware for commercial use (trial copies or viral distribution plans are OK).
All videos must be in the English, Spanish, or French languages.
All videos must be in Windows Media Player format.
Any length is acceptable, up to 60 minutes.
Videos may be lecture, interview, group discussion, power point presentations, demonstration, or other format; with or without audio.
Videos must be informative, educational, instructive, how-to-build, how-to-buy, or do-it-yourself in nature. I will not accept videos about religion, politics, race, dating, entertainment, social networking, sex, porn, or any offensive topics. Sports videos are acceptable ONLY if they are educational. In short, ask yourself "does this video teach me something?"
Videos which advertise a particular product or service are acceptable, but only if they also teach one how to use the product. Blatant self-serving advertisements are not acceptable.
Videos about business, investments, how to get rich, multi-level marketing, making money online, and similar topics are specifically NOT WANTED.
Topics or subjects may be VERY broad, but should have a personal consumer orientation. Here are some ideas: Health, personal hygiene, exercise, diet, indoor and outdoor sports activities, personal finance, consumer protection, automobiles, auto maintenance, travel, home purchase and maintenance, hobbies, amateur radio, electronics, model building, collecting and collectibles, gardening, landscaping, handicrafts, sewing, knitting, weaving, sculpting, painting, decorating, furniture, computers and software, programming and web design, graphic arts, software selection and use, cooking, food, shopping, personal electronics, games, toys, . . . etc., etc., etc.
I need to make substantial progress on this project by 1 August 2008. I would expect to see some weekly progress, and I am willing to pay weekly based on links delivered each week. The project may possibly continue beyond 1 August, with additional payments for progress.
I could use 1,000 or more videos, but I have no idea how many videos may be available. Therefore, I suggest payment should be based on the NUMBER of videos you find; your bid should quote an amount PER VIDEO.
I prefer delivery in a spreadsheet, with two fields for each video you find: (1) the URL of the page on which the video appears; (2) the .wmv URL taken from the "properties" tab of the video link (right click the link). I will do a random-sample spot check of the links before payment is released.
