|[3:30 PM] You Have An iMac DV And iMovie, Now What? SingleReel Has The Answer
For those of you that have had that iMac DV for awhile, and are just dying to share your digital creations with the world, SingleReel has a web site for you. SingleReel offers users free streaming QuickTime hosting, allowing a multitude of forms of digital content to be easily shared. While prohibiting pornography, SingleReel promises that just about anything else goes. According to SingleReel:
SingleReel is a new kind of streaming video site - it's created by the people! We want to help you share your video clips with your friends, strangers, and anyone in between. The hosting is free, we don't limit subject matter, and don't impose any particular artistic style or abilility level.
- A categorized video clip directory (like Yahoo, but for videos).
- A free Streaming QuickTime Video server:
- Anyone can submit a video clip using easy to use web pages.
- A video clip can be listed in the directory, or be private (locked with an access code).
- A video clip can be included in another site by using a special URL. Preserve site branding, and offload video hosting problems.
- Include a link to your site from our video directory and build traffic.
- Viewers can rate clips (1-5 stars) and post comments.
- Each author gets a summary page with list of his/her clips, their access counts and ratings -- easy to see which clip is most popular, and find out what people are saying with just one click.
- Absolutely no restrictions on production values or clip topic (we only prohibit porn). Share family videos, start a local "news station", promote your boyfriend's band, show your talents with short drama -- whatever!
- The service is absolutely free.
As stated, the service is absolutely free. You can find more information at the SingleReel web site.
