Video Upload Sites

Upload and Share Your Videos

Broadcast Yourself. That's the tag for the Youtube video sharing social network, a video upload site where people can watch, rate and comment on videos uploaded by other users.

Video upload sites have been around for a while now but they are only getting more and more popular these days and have been one of the catalyst of the new web 2.0 movement where users submit the bulk of a sites web content.

These sites are fun and in many ways informative and addictive. Youtube is among the most visited sites on the internet according to Alexa with millions of people visiting the site each day.

There are lots of other sites like Youtube, some of them standalone and some that are on social networks while others are used for a specific purpose.

How Video Upload Sites Work.

Video upload sites usually require you to have an account in order to have the full benefits of being a member. Without an account you are restricted to just watching and enjoying the videos although you can still share them.

After you create an account you can then upload your video, which will be hosted on the video upload site, using a special form. Once the video is uploaded it will be given a special url which gives the video a special location on the network.

The user will then tag each video with special keywords which will be used for finding your video and for placing it as a related video to similar ones on the video upload site. This makes finding your video an easy task for other users since it will appear alongside other popular videos with the same tag.

Users can then comment on your video if they like it (or if they don't) and also rate it (5 stars would be great). The can also grab the url and place it on their own website or page or if its the case of a social network like Myspace, add it to their page. Most video upload sites are also social networks.

Sites like Hubpages.com also integrate videos from these video upload sites so its easy to share your videos across the internet.

Great information about the different video site's that are available there are so many to use these days and always new ones springing up each month. Take a look at Renderyard which is made one for film makers and musicians which is getting a lot of attention because they have no time limit for the length of the films and an 300mb upload limit per file so they are high res as well check out www.renderyard.com

What about the Play Puppet Network? Take a look and let me know. Have a great day.
