    Now that we are full, I wanted to ask everyone about participating in a Play of the Week thread. How I envision it to work is that everyone would select one play from their game that week, upload it to a designated Overdrive Youtube account, and then I would handle to rest as far as posting the videos and poll for each week. Then everyone can view the videos and vote on the best play of each week.

    This was something we briefly did in my first online dynasty here at TSO and I really enjoyed it. Here's an example: http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/week-7-play-of-the-week.81815/

    I understand it is a little extra work to have to download the video and upload it to youtube, but I think this is something that can get everyone involved and it lets everyone in the dynasty see some of your best plays if you do not normally post videos in your recaps. If enough interest is present I will provide all the how to's as well as youtube account information in the week 1 thread.

    Glad to hear it! If there's any way to make it easier or if someone else has any ideas for additions, I would definitely love to hear them.

    As long as it is easy to do, it sounds awesome!

    I could register a YouTube account for the dynasty and pm everyone the information. That way all videos are kept in the same location.

    I like it too. We did that last year in Overdrive as well, at least for a little while. We already have a YouTube account for Overdrive.

    I'm at work now. I'll post more about it later.

    Good stuff.

    Yea that should work, I think it'd be cool to have it (all players highlights) in one video each week, as long as someone doesn't mind doing the editing for it. Would I be able to email the video to the person who is doing this? My phone is almost 2 years old (I'm a "free phone with the plan guy") but it does take pretty sweet videos.

    Here's an example of something we did last season.

    Most people dont have a way to save highlights directly to a PC and upload to YouTube, but some of us do. The ones who don't, all you have to do is save and upload highlights at the end of your game via the Xbox. Might sound tricky, but it's really easy. Then someone will have to access them via the EASports web page and save them to a file and then upload them to YouTube.

    Ok that sounds easy. I clearly had the wrong idea of how to do it. Sounds very cool.
