How we use videos

On any given week Dash Cam Owners Australia receives hundreds of videos from people around Australia, This presents a challenge to us in regards to striking a balance between showing content that everyone enjoys and keeping people who have sent videos happy.

We endeavour to use all videos in some fashion however this is frankly not possible for a number of reasons. Please do not take it personally if we are not able to use your video. On average each week we use less than half of the videos submitted.

On a given day we will download the videos that are sent to us and sort them into categories.

Some will be put aside for the monthly compilation which is done once a month on our YouTube channel. Less than 1 in 10 videos goes into the monthly compilation. Others may be put aside for special compilations further down the track (Load Fails etc) Larger incidents (Crashes, very close calls etc) are generally posted to the Facebook page and the more severe ones to the YouTube channel.

Other videos that arent used in the above scenarios are used in our Weekly livestream. Every Sunday night at 7PM Sydney time we stream live on twitch where we show videos that weren’t used elsewhere, this is usually in excess of 100 videos and takes about 1-2 hours. No subscription or account is required to view the stream however an account is required to chat along with the viewers.

An edited version of this stream is available each week on our YouTube.

There are other videos that we simply can’t use unfortunately, This can be for a variety of reasons including:

*Low video quality

*Video format issues

*Copyrighted music

*The video being edited excessively

*The video not clearly showing any wrongdoing

*The video content violates the rules for YouTube / Facebook etc

*The video was filmed on a mobile phone

*The video was filmed off a monitor or screen

*The event being difficult to make out / too far away

*Minor every day occurences

We try to use everyones videos where possible but hope you can understand that this is not always achievable and should not be taken personally. We thank everyone who continues to send us videos and hope to continue making content that everyone can enjoy from it.
