The second part was initially restricted for viewing on the cameralabs.com domain only to encourage people to come to the site. This worked for the majority of people, but when a few coulodn't access it for some reason, I made it public on Vimeo, although I still restricted the embedding to cameralabs.
The reason I did this is because this is my full-time living and I can't make any money unless people come to the site and actually shop through our partner stores. If they watch the videos on other sites or download them, they effectively circumvent my revenue stream. Donwloading videos also prevents me from receiving accurate playback statistics - these stats in turn influence which products or subjects I cover in the future. If I don't know how many people are watching or from where, I can't properly judge how popular something has been.
This is the big problem with YouTube because if you want to embed a video, you have to let EVERYONE do it. This isn't normally that big an issue with the video reviews because there's additional content here to go with them (the review and results), but with the interview, that's really the only content, so there's no incentive for people to come here if they watch it elsewhere. So if I posted part 2 on YT, I am effectively giving it all away for free and the week I spent putting it together won't be paid.
But back to the technicalities and why it won't play for some people. Maybe vimeo is being very picky about the actual domain, so please make sure you visit http://www.cameralabs.com
(the full name) and ensure you've cleared your cache and cookies as they may still 'remember' the previous settings when it was more private.
If that doesn't work, you should still be able to watch it at vimeo itself because it's no longer private there. Presuming of course that you can already play other videos from vimeo. If you can't play any videos from vimeo, please look at their troubleshooting sections at vimeo.com.
ROY - despite you comitting the cardinal sin of downloading my videos (!), I do appreciate your tips and agree they would make the video better. Unfortunately as described, there was little I could do about the framing because I had to point the cameras, then sit in front of them - there was no-one available to check the picture while we were talking, and as you know, people do move in their chairs.
And while Chase seemed very happy to give me as much time as I needed, I did want to get it all wrapped up as quickly and professionally as possible, so I didn't have long to setup. We also wasted a lot of time trying to find a location outdoors, which would have been brighter, but high winds forced us indoors - in fact a glass-topped table even blew over and just missed Chase! By the way, the fireplace was his idea! We almost had it lit too, but again it was taking too long.
As for using a DSLR to film, remember I needed cameras which could film uninterrupted for around one hour, and that eliminates most DSLRs.
