YouTube vs.

I have signed up for accounts on both YouTube and to check out their video upload features.

Initially I tried YouTube and was quite taken with its features. Today I tried and was even more impressed – its feature set and community building feature-set blows YouTube out of the water.

Not alone can you upload and share your video with, you can also post directly to your blog, post to, post to Flickr, email, and link to your video (see the screenshot below): video sharing options

YouTube, on the other hand, merely allows emailing and use in blogs (that I could find).

I did have one or two issues with (I couldn’t get it to post to Flickr and I couldn’t get a flashing cursor in text boxes which was disconcerting more than anything else) but aside from that seems to far outperform YouTube!

  1. I know it’s naughty to keep the tinfoil hat this close to hand, but I can’t help wondering how long it’ll be before one of these sites abuses the “post direct to your blog” feature to post their own stuff on people’s blogs without authorisation. Or perhaps reserves the right to do so via a clause in their signup ToS. Obviously it would be an incredibly silly thing to do, but there’s a lot of marketers out there…

  2. What are blip’s terms and conditions in relation to IP owership and their use rights over your uploaded stuff? I know YouTubes are the kind that are driving me off their site.

  3. Blip’s ToS are here. Unfortunately I don’t speak legalese so I’m not sure what they say(!).

    This bit seemed reassuring though:
