Feb. 15, 2005: YouTube' second birthday

The video-sharing site, founded by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim, has, in three short years, become the third-most-visited website worldwide, trailing only Yahoo and YouTube's parent company, Google.

Everyone from Hillary to Barack to John to Mike has a YouTube presence, and one candidate, Republican Ron Paul, began his quest for the White House with a campaign limited almost exclusively to the internet.

Video Chat Software Introduces Recording

A new version of video chat software ooVoo released this week allows users to record chats, perhaps to post them to video-sharing sites like YouTube or just to keep them for posterity.

Chatham gets YouTube attention; worldwide attention on local filmers

The Internet generation is helping to bring some recognition to Chatham-Kent via the popular video-sharing website YouTube.

Within a month of posting it on YouTube, Ball said he received an e-mail from, an online thriller movie website, asking if he wanted to have his film featured in a compilation DVD of filmmakers around the world, titled "Twisted Vol. 4."

He honed his skills while doing promotional videos and filming Remembrance Day ceremonies as a student at Lambton Kent Composite School in Dresden.

Nolan Ball, 23, has a budding film career thanks to videos shot in Chatham - with local actors - that were noticed on You Tube.

He said the video features local skate boarders.

"A lot of people like to go online and watch goofy things, so they like to see people fall on their skateboards," he said.

Favorite YouTube Videos and some Microsoft news

UTUBE: You wouldn't mistake the "electro-synth spaz group" Yip Yip, with their checkered bodysuits and homemade multifunctional music consoles, for the average local bar band. But they're not all form and no function; this band's music practices what their outfits preach.

Microsoft has been struggling to make an impact in online video, and is hoping that by increasing the amount of 'big brand' content on its site it can attract larger audiences. In the UK, only 735,000 users visited MSN video in December, according to Nielsen Online, whereas more than ten million went to U-Tube.

Announcing deals with Sony BMG and MTV Networks that will deliver music and other videos to its MSN platform, Microsoft said that it was hoping to cash in on the growing online video advertising market, which it expected would be the fastest growing category of adverts on the web "for the forseeable future."

As one might suspect, the list includes some real gems: Pickle Surprise, Rev. X on the "Spirit of Truth," JacMac & RadBoy, Devo on Live at Five (below), a response to "YouTube's System Is Totally Flawed," Christopher Hitchens on Jerry Falwell's Death, a Cardiacs video, and video art from Nam June Paik.

YouTube, which was visited by 122 million people in December, already has deals with the major record labels which let them take a cut of advertising revenue resulting from visits to their channels on the site.

YouTube is the Most Valuable Player For Marketing

SOME religions believe in an afterlife. Others do not. On Madison Avenue after the Super Bowl, most everyone is a believer.

That is because the Internet, digital video recorders, mobile devices and other technologies are giving a strong postgame presence to the commercials that appear each year during the Super Bowl. The spots can be watched later on Web sites, forwarded to friends through e-mail, YouTube aggregator discussed on message boards and assessed on blogs. You can also find a lot of funny videos

The E*Trade commercial, created by the Grey Global division of the WPP Group, was followed on the TiVo list by one featuring Justin Timberlake, for a music promotion co-sponsored by Pepsi-Cola and Amazon; a spot for Doritos created by a consumer for a contest last year; one for Coca-Cola Classic that spoofed the red-blue political divide; and a spot with Carmen Electra for Ice Breakers Ice Cubes gum.

It is a far cry from just a few years ago, when the Super Bowl commercials disappeared after the game, along with the losing team. Now the strategy among sponsors is to maximize postgame exposure to help amortize the eye-popping cost of a Super Sunday spot — this time, an estimated $2.7 million for each 30 seconds of national air time.

Scores of Web sites are offering computer users a chance to watch video clips of the Super Bowl commercials, among them AOL, MSNBC, MySpace, Spike and YouTube.

YouTube news: Korea video sharing scene

The recently launched Korean version of YouTube has failed to create a big impact in the local video sharing scene, Korea Times reports. Wanna sit and relax watching funny video clips from YouTube ?

Now compare that to YouTube’s biggest local competitors. Pandora TV has an average of 997,000 daily visitors; Mncast, Mgoon, Gom TV and Afreeca are all ahead by a factor of two to five. That’s right: YouTube isn’t even in the top 5 video sharing websites in Korea, and the localized version hasn’t helped them one bit - so far, at least.

Internet traffic monitoring company Rankey reported a surge of traffic (382,000 daily visitors) to YouTube English and YouTube Korea on 23rd of January, the day of the launch; however, the extra traffic soon vanished, leaving YouTube at a meager 115,000 daily visitors in Korea.
