… people say. Of course Youtube rules the market for now, but there are several others rising on the horizon. Some of them are a sort of video-only browser, a browser that trawls the net for content – copyrighted or not – and transmits it from PC to TV (e.g. veoh), others are simply embedded players like e.g. youtube or a mixture between both like e.g. brightcove.
The moneymaker? Ads of course …
For our SCOPE_07 conference we’ve tested some of the new videoplattforms. My favorite is brightcove – so far.
