Podcasting site Odeo relaunches, now with more video

After spending a few months in private beta, Odeo has launched a new version of its podcast aggregation service. OK, actually it looks like the new version of the site launched a few weeks ago, but we just noticed it, thanks to a short writeup over at TechCrunch. The updated site features a sleek new design and video. Lots and lots of video. Odeo now has videos from about half a million...

Odeo launches private beta, shiny new interface

Podcast aggregator and search engine Odeo is beta testing a new web site, and from what we've seen so far, it's a vast improvement over Odeo's existing page. The first thing you'll notice (if you're invited to join the beta after signing up for an invite), is a new, cleaner look that makes it easier to find featured podcasts and browse by categories. But much more impressive is the new search...

Yahoo! kills podcast site

Yahoo! is closing down Yahoo! Podcasts on October 31. And the 2-year old site never even got to shed its beta tag. So tragic. The site is actually one of the better podcast directories on the web. Yahoo! has indexed a large number of podcasts, and the site is easy to navigate. There's even a handy player for streaming podcasts without downloading them. But while podcasting was all the rage a few...

What's next for Odeo?

Now that SonicMountain has acquired Odeo, what does the future hold for the podcasting site? NewTeevee asked SonicMountain President Rick Arturo and CEO Jack Roken that question, and it turns out the answer can be summed up in one word: plastics. No, I mean video. Roken and Arturo say SonicMountain plans to add video to the podcast aggregation site, either by partnering with a video provider or...

SonicMountain buys Odeo

New York-based SonicMountain Inc has acquired the assets of podcast aggregator Odeo. According to the press release, SonicMountain is focused on digital media hosting and searching, but at this point it's likely they'll be best known, at least for a while, as the company that bought Odeo. Odeo's been seeking a buyer since last February. While the wildly popular Twitter started off as an outgrowth...

Odeo now under Obvious Corp's wing

Obvious Corp? Curious name for a company, but this is Web 2.0, right?--At least it's not Obviousr. Obvious Corp is a brand new company founded by Blogger creator Evan Williams and his Odeo co-founder Biz Stone. As its opening move, Obvious Corp has acquired Odeo, Inc.'s assets including Odeo and Twitter. Williams explains the move in his blog, saying, "I believe there is a lot of value in what...

Odeo embeddable recorder: voicemail for your blog

Podcasting portal Odeo recently added a feature that lets people record messages for you on your Odeo page, kind of like voicemail for the web. What's cooler, though, is that the message recorder can be embedded in any web page, so you can stick it in a blog post and anyone with a microphone can come along and leave a voice message for you. To use it you'll need an Odeo account, but people don't...
