What is WePlayed?
WePlayed is an exciting sports video platform tailored specifically for those who love the game. Not only do we provide access to a rich catalog of games, but we also allow our community of athletes, fans, and experts to discover and enrich any moment from any game, making them available for search, personalization, and sharing. By connecting communities with their favorite sports content, WePlayed fosters an ecosystem that adds both technical detail and emotional insight into specific moments in the game. Users can then use these moments to create new stories and context around their favorite teams, athletes, and sports.
WePlayed believes that all athletes and fans should have access to the games they love to share their story and insights that they only know. The platform is designed to capture this knowledge so that the story and history of athletes, teams, and games don’t get lost. At WePlayed, when the game ends, the story begins. We allow users to discover, personalize and share their favorite moments in college sports. WePlayed is the ultimate sports video platform because it’s built by people who love the game: athletes and experts like you.\
A moment is a video clip with added information. It’s far more than a highlight because it not only includes specific video segments from a game, but it also incorporates both data and insights from our community. Moments can be viewed with additional context of the athletes in the moments along with additional information. These moments can then be used to build new stories by adding them to collections and allowing other WePlayed users to add to the rich history and context in the game.
How do I create great moments?
It’s simple: we provide you all the tools you need to get the games you want and discover the terrific moments within them. Critical things to consider are:
- Title. Title the moment in a succinct, insightful way from your perspective. This is a social way to capture the essence of the moment.
- Tags. A great moment should have tags that capture the technical aspects of the play on the field. If the moment doesn’t warrant a technical tag i.e. A commentator talking about
- Athlete. The core of the moment starts with the athlete in the moment. Highlight the athlete accurately. A great moment should have more than two highlighted athletes
- Tone. Please don’t be a jerk: Your title and tags shouldn’t be rude or demeaning to an athlete, team or coach. Just like in the game, unsportsmanlike behavior can have you sent to the locker room.
