Being a caster I want to give out the easiest and most pleasurable viewing experience. Please help me out and other casters to reference these polls so we can organize our VODs in a way you prefer to watch and experience foreign Brood War.
The way I've been doing it:: I've been streaming onto Twitch to allow people to tune in live. Then I follow by clumping all parts of the cast of a series into a playlist on YouTube that I link into the OP.
Why bother asking the question: I want to know if you prefer Twitch or YouTube. YouTube allows for organization of the VODs while it is more easier to link 6 different parts on Twitch.TV I think it make it easier to watch when all parts are within one link. I know I sound bias but feel free to post below if Twitch.TV is a better viewing experience and tell me why.

YouTube: Each separate game has their own VOD. Placed into playlist. Linked in OP w/ spoiler tab (23)
YouTube: Entire cast placed into a single playlist. Playlist linked in OP (9)
CelloX's Idea: Liquidpedia: Each game has individual VOD link w/ brackets & spoiler results (8)
Twitch: Part(s) of cast are linked in OP (1)

Why bother asking the question: I've been getting the different parts of a cast and then clumping them into a YouTube playlist. However if there is a demand for it and easier for the viewer to have each game have their own VOD I'd be more then happy to do it.
Why bother asking the question: Currently I've seen OP's structured completely different from each other. While sure people can get creative with the pictures and the way it looks the general overall structure of the Tournament OP should be somewhat consistent from each OP to the next. Being a caster I want to keep the VODs section of these posts as clean and viewer friendly as I can no matter whose cast it is. I don't know what structure is most suitable for the viewer I have my opinion I've shared it what do you think?

youtube is obviously superior. Twitch is just convenient for casters who don't feel like doing any editing or uploading VODs. If you do it live it's going to be on both no matter what, but Twitch makes it as amateur as possible.
I like YouTube especially because it is easy to DL the VODs too. I usually don't watch VODs off of my computer. I prefer to transcode them for a PMP or other device. Twitch TV makes it just about impossible to dl VODs off of.... I'm sure there is some way to do it, but it's not as painless as YouTube.
Use playlists, obviously... 1 VOD per game (or per series), named in proper order (ie put 001 in front so it doesn't need to be renamed after download), and put in the playlist in proper order.
It's a little more effort I guess, but Twitch.TV is the worst place to watch VODs. Only use it for live casts. I think these answers are obvious, just most people either don't even keep their video after it's on Twitch, or don't feel like putting it on youtube.
Youtube with playlists is really the only thing that works for me personally, as I like to watch things before taking a nap / going to sleep, and that excludes being able to get up every ~10 minutes to start another video, and setting up my own playlist is a hassle.
I still prefer twitch over unorganized/unplaylisted youtube though.
Because for the demand of each game being its own VOD I've gone to the liberty of doing it myself. However for people who want the torrent option how do you purpose such a thing? There is easily 5+ VODs almost every day?
