Abundance of videos and increased demand of efficient curation

Web is a lot of noise. So are the videos in it. Every minute close to ‘100 hrs’ of new video content is being uploaded to the web. Over 4 billion human hours are spent on watching videos every month. Many users visit youtube or any similar platform aimlessly & involuntarily, but with a context or category in their minds which is primarily driven by their mood at the time. For such users, it is very difficult to find the right content.

Social sites, today, are not intelligent enough to cater the best content based on user requirement. In the existing platforms, the viral content forms a major part of our feeds. Most of the times the content that goes viral is irrelevant to the user. While most searches are entertainment focussed, we do want productive videos too. Current platforms tend to trap us in inescapable loops & we end up giving in to their suggestions.

Behavioral psychologists work towards building habit-forming products. This holds true for the social sites too; which is why we visit Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Youtube with little or no thought. There are times when we do not fully consume the content we are served. The primary reason behind this is a lack of known alternate platforms that can fulfill our recreational needs at little or no cost. It is not even surprising to find that there are times when we spend 30 minutes or more in just looking for the right content.

Art forms such as documentaries, classical music & short films find it very difficult to make their way to user feeds. This is because the elements which truly define an art form, vis-a-vis audio, visuals, mood & emotions, are not the basis of page ranking algorithms. Rather it is mostly their title & description that form its basis. For instance, searching for ‘Inspirational Videos’ on youtube throws results with content which has the keywords — “Inspirational” & “Video” in their supporting text. Now, each of us derives inspiration from different mediums — some of us find it in Eminem’s rap & some might find it in a short film, which might not even contain ‘Inspiration’ as their keyword. This is where BrewTV is different than many popular platforms today.
