With our latest Fast Video Cataloger update we introduce a Catalog file reader mode on the software. The reader mode is activated after 7 days when the trial period is over. With the reader mode activated you cant create new catalogs or add new videos but all the of the features and goodies are still there. This means you can send your catalog files(.vcat) to your partners, colleagues, clients and prospects without demanding them to purchase licenses of Fast Video Cataloger. The reason for this is off course to make collaboration easier and to gain a wider spread of our way of thinking about structured video.

The algorithm for what Youtube recommends have changed and is now more focused on how long time a video has been watched instead of how many clicks it has. Youtube states that this as an ongoing change of focus towards watch time of videos and encourage users to make improvements to “keep them watching”
Google have also added extra features to the analytic page so you can follow how your watch time improves.

Cataloging your external media drives
One of the things I love the most about Fast Video Cataloger is that you can create a catalog of your external video drive and then have that catalog available to browse on your computer when the external drive is unconnected. Watch this video to see how easy the video catalog is created.
The Fast Video Cataloger 1.50 features a flexible user interface that can be adopted to your video workflow. You can hide windows you dont use or move them around to fit your needs.
