Flickr adds Google accounts to sign-in options, plans better OpenID support

Starting today, signing up for Flickr is possible using Google accounts. This feature is rolling out as part of a new push from Flickr to support OpenID. Google is the first partner, but support for more services is expected in the future. Up until now, Yahoo-owned Flickr required a Yahoo ID to use. As you can see in the screenshot to the right, this is now also possible using an existing...

DailyMotion coming to the US (isn't it already here?)

Video-sharing site DailyMotion is making a major push in the United States. Like pretty much anything else on the internet, it's not exactly off limits to US users right now, but the bulk of the site's audience is currently in France, where the company is located. So what do these big new plans for US domination entail? The company plans to offer professional video along with user-generated...

Mixercast is a web based application currently in alpha that allows you to take video, photos, and sound off of your computer or websites like YouTube and Flickr and create embeddable players to display them.

Late last year TiVo announced a partnership with One True Media that would allow customers to share content from their TiVo boxes with other TiVo users.

The service officially launched today and here's how it works: Upload your photos and videos to One True Media's website ...

Viacom signs a deal with Joost

Just two weeks after they ordered YouTube to take down thousands of videos, Viacom has reportedly struck a deal with another online video site, Joost. A huge point of the deal being that Joost claims to be able to provide copyright protection that YouTube could not for their video. While no financial details of the deal were disclosed you can be sure that Viacom is more than likely walking away...

VodPod's multi-video embeddable player

Although VodPod has been around since at least December of last year, I have not stumbled upon the video sharing site until today, after they recently launched a brand new widget that allows users to embed multiple videos in a single player. Quite frankly, this is pretty awesome. Using VodPod's service, not only can you leech videos from other websites such as YouTube, Google Video, blip.tv, and...

Zudeo: Azureus does video sharing

Azureus, makers of the open source, cross-platform BitTorrent client of the same name, have launched Zudeo, a new video sharing site in the YouTube mold, but based on BitTorrent technology. That fact could either be its success or its downfall. Its downfall because BitTorrent does not lend itself to streaming, so a video must be downloaded in its entirety before being viewed. Its success because...

Video sharing quality compared

YouTube is the de facto standard for video sharing on the web, but there are a lot of other options out there. But other features aside, which one offers the best video quality? While Life Goggles doesn't actually answer that question for you, it does gives you side-by-side comparisons of eight major video sharing sites' embedded players so you can judge for yourself. I've been squinting at them...

CNet's popular web photo-sharing site Webshots has taken the obvious next step of launching its own video sharing feature.

Microsoft's Soapbox video sharing fails to impress

That Microsoft is launching a new video sharing site called Soapbox isn't really news, but somehow it escaped my attention until now. CNet's Rafe Needleman is more on the ball, however, and got to take a look the currently-in-private-beta service. Microsoft has been turning a lot of heads lately with its Live.com offerings, but Needleman is unimpressed by Soapbox. "I found nothing in the Soapbox...

Marking the first of potentially many such acquisitions, Sony Pictures Entertainment has acquired video sharing start-up Grouper for $65 million in cash. Grouper, which has garnered praise from reviewers, will be used by Sony "to share lower quality Sony videos online, distribute DVD quality video by P2P and allow users to create mashups of select Sony media properties," according to TechCrunch,...
