3 Websites that outsmart Youtube.

Youtube for sure is like a heavy gorilla of video sharing sites but there is an impressive count of websites which are infact rivals of Youtube.
Some although are merely clones, others do offer unique twists. Here in this post, I will be featuring three websites which definitely outsmart Youtube.

  1. Blip.tv: Blip.tv has an extremely superior Video/Audio quality. The website allows you to upload video via its Wesbite, mobile phone , FTP address or a desktop utility called UpperBlip.Blip.tv The design of the embedded player also is very good and makes Blip.tv stand out. Blip.tv also has a revenue sharing mechanism.Blip.tv also offers unlimited user storage.
  2. Brightcove Beta: The Video/Audio quality of Brightcove is Very good. The ease of upload is also another feature which i liked. If you are also interested in making money from your content, free BrightCove Network account is the way to go.BrightCove                                                                                                       Like Blip.tv, Brightcove also offers unlimited user storage.Brightcove has a superior embedded player design.
  3. DivX Stage 6 Beta: Stage 6                The video quality of DivX Stage 6 Beta is also very good. However, the audio quality gets a rating of good. DivX Stage 6 Beta like Brightcove has a superior embedded player design.DivX Stage 6 Beta doesnt allow revenue sharing.

Do let me know your comments on the above listings.

Excellent list of resources for Web2.0

Just came across an excellent resource list on Web 2.0 Stuff compiled by Everything Web2.0 blog. The list has amazing resources to help you build better.

Probably the most interesting ones are the frameworks, platforms and libraries for typical 2.0-stuff .
But watch out for all other pearls: bug & issue trackers, business intelligence solutions, database solutions, catalogue wares, design toolboxes, enterprise solutions, media editors, hosting & domain management & testing tools, media management solutions, mobile content delivery tools, site tour builders, hardcore telephony solutions, voice recognition tools, and more incidental code snippets, like URL shorteners, widget builders, Ajax & RIA apps.

Check out the complete list here
