People don't watch videos *in* Esperanto
My son and I had a fun day out not long ago so I put together this video about it. By request it's in Esperanto. The early reviews by the patrons was favorable - but it's doing well below average in terms of watch time and views.
People say they want more content in Esperanto. What they actually do, though, is different.
Kompreneble ni bezonas pli da filmetoj en Esperanto. Se oni volas spekti filmojn en la angla, ne estas problemego trovi ilin, ĉu ne? Sed kiom da kanaloj ekzistas, kiuj vere ofertas plaĉan enhavon en Esperanto? Ĉiaokaze ne multe. Do bonvolu daŭrigi viajn tre amuzajn filmetojn en Esperanto.
I watch most of your content, and I like most of your content. Just the one you mentioned above was not for me for some reason. Happens now and then on every channel I am subscribed to. And it probably happens to every YouTuber out there, that some of their videos have fewer views than others.
Please keep on doing the good job that you're doing.
For it to be more accessible, it would need subtitles. Esperanto only subs, and Esperanto with English below them. Yes, I realize it's quite some work, just saying that without that yoh can't expect crowds of people curious about Esperanto / beginners to follow what you say.
This is a case where people complain no matter what I do. I make plenty of content in English and then people complain that it's not in Esperanto. Remember that subtitles take time - and I already have more projects than time right now. To be clear, though, I'm not expecting "crowds of curious people" or beginners to follow these videos. I'm expecting people who SAY that they want videos in Esperanto to watch them (and to support them).
This video isn't really for beginners - but even a beginner can listen to the video and try to pick up some words here and there. If you've understood three words in the video, that's a start.
Yes, without subtitles it is impossible for beginners to understand what is going on.
