I just tried the One True Media service. One True Media lets you create and share videos from your photos or videos. You can then share these videos in several ways:
- html code to embed flash player on various sites
- Share via email
- Create a link to the video hosted on One True Media site
- Send to a mobile phone
- Share to a TiVo Channel
The last one is what I am interested in. We have been sharing our videos with our family by either burning them on DVD or posting a copy on the web. Sending the video to family members who have TiVo DVRs is a great way to share family videos.
When you share a One True Media on a TiVo Channel, you can send the recipients an email. This email contains a code that they can enter in to subscribe to the TiVo Channel.
On Sunday, I uploaded a 25Mb video to One True Media, and then shared it to a TiVo Channel. Then on my Series 3, I subscribed to that channel. When I got home from work on Monday, the video had downloaded.
Unfortunately, the video that I had uploaded had been transcoded to a resolution for the web, so it didn't look that good when displayed on the TV. The next time, I will upload a higher resolution video.
Here is a video demonstration of One True Media:
