What’s VodPod? We think it’s the best way to collect videos to share with your friends, or a community that shares your interests and tastes.
There are a couple of easy ways to start collecting videos. We have a browser bookmarklet that makes it extremely easy to add video to your pod from hundreds of video sharing sites such as YouTube. With just a click it’s in your Pod. And we have some great widgets that let you bring your Pod to your blog or website.
Or you can use our meta-search service to look for videos on YouTube, Google, Comedy Central, Daily Motion and Myspace.
Pods are made for people, not just videos. You can make your Pod as collaborative and social as you want. Let friends and others add video — if you want. Tell your friends and podmates what to watch — ratings, comments, and a fun drop-down “emoticon” that lets you tell people you loved a video, laughed out loud, or just that you watched it. If you want only a few select people to see your Pod, make it private. Only the people you invite in, get in.
We know that launching VodPod today is just a start. We have lots of ideas about how we’d like to make it better. But we’re just three of what we hope will be many people using VodPod — we’d love to hear from all of you. How can we make it better? What’s your dream feature we haven’t built yet? If you encounter bugs or errors, let us know. We’ve tried to make VodPod as good as possible for launch, but like all software, it’s never quite perfect.
Thanks for trying out the service.
