I didn’t know what to call it, so I just was thinking of a “megabyte” or “Byte chains”.
Disclaimer: This is not an idea that I expect the Byte team to work on now (if they actually like this idea lol) because I know that they are tackling the essentials right now, but I just thought the idea would be kind of cool and unique. Maybe they will work on this sometime in the future? Who knows
I was thinking, instead of only allowing collabs in duet style (Which I know the Byte team mentioned that they would work on later), I was wondering if we could also do collabs with others in a series format.
For example, if me and 3 other byters wanted to collaborate, I could request to do a megabyte with them and they could approve it. When I posted my byte it would say somewhere that it’s apart of a series and what part of the series it is (part 1/4) and the person viewing it could tap a button that could lead them to the beginning of the series and they could watch it to the end. If they choose to watch a series of bytes, they could get a skip button or something to skip which ever video they don’t enjoy.
Not sure how the timing would go on these, but I’m thinking maximum 8 people could do a megabyte together and each person would get 8 seconds, so the whole series would be 64 seconds (if the Byte team actually puts the time up that far. 64 seconds is arbitrary for this example).
You would need at least two people to do a megabyte together and the series would be no longer than 64 seconds. If 2 people do a megabyte they can each get 32 seconds if they need it. If 3 people do a megabyte together they could get 21 seconds and so on…
With the time limit for these megabytes, another possibility would be to give each person the full 64 seconds to work with? I’m not sure, I’m just afraid it could make the whole series too long? But, it could be interesting though depending on what the megabyte is about.
What could we use megabytes for?
-Dancers dancing to a popular song
-Actors acting out a short skit or short film with multiple parts
-Singers singing different parts of the same song
Those were some of the ideas that I could think of off the top of my head, but I think this could be a way to collaborate while not necessarily using the same audio like you would in a duet.
This idea was inspired by @JPH’s series idea, but instead of only being allowed to put your own bytes into a series, you could also do series with other people. So maybe his idea could be called series and mines could be called something else?
It would be nice if there was also a “Megabyte” channel for this.
Again, this is just idea, it could be bad or good to you guys, I’m not sure. I’m just trying to throw ideas out there.
Please feel free to help me come up with a name for this or change the idea a bit.
