My Vpod TV Video Publishing on Demand
When I first saw the Vpod.tv homepage I thought I was seeing a Joost light version on the web. A fullscreen video of the infamous nunchuck guy was shown followed by several others. A menu appeared when I moved the mouse cursor over the lower region of the website showing the next videos in line giving me some options to switch channels, skip videos and to open a secondary menu with more options.
The real beauty of this approach is that videos are played non stop. The interface is really slick and does not need to hide itself behind that of services like Joost or Bablegum. Several categories exist like Comedy, Sports and Animation to name a few.
Videos that are available at the moment should last for some time. I was not able to find information about updates on the site. The real beauty of the system is that everyone who registers may create his own video channels and share them on his website. Every user gets 600 megabytes of content which is great for video blogs for instance.
The site seems to have been relaunched in 2012 which may explain why the video player and content is no longer available. It is not clear if the site operators just forgot to re-add the content, or if it has been taken down on purpose.
Update: The video platform does not seem to be available anymore. When you open the main page of the service you only get a product related home page where the company informs you about their products. The products are video related, but there does not appear to be an option anymore to load a video player to play videos using the slick client interface that the company launched back in 2007. I suggest you check out Dailymotion as an alternative. It may not provide you with the same slick interface but it offers some interesting videos nevertheless.Advertisement
Looks like a copy/clone of neave.tv
Webbster> vpod.tv is not a destination site at all. Our value proposition is to enable anyone to create their own TV channel. To do so, we have a number of different interfaces available, including our full screen TV interface:
* it can be branded and use customer specific colours (see for example http://www.decideurstv.com)
* channels (ie the tabs) are generated automatically in the vpod.tv back office, and the content is easily managed in the back office.
* finally, the interface is fully extensible now through plugins available on the v-menu.
Expect many more features to show up quickly on this interface.
