    Me and a friend have created a video hosting site designed specifically for internet marketers. You can use the site to easily make a video go viral since it encourages viewers to share video half way through watching it. To see how this works just go to VooVid.com and watch any of the videos featured on homepage. Currently we have movie trailers on there for testing, however once we get some users we plan to feature popular user submitted videos on homepage every week.


    To submit a video simply go to VooVid.com, and click on ?Upload Video?, there is no need to register just Log in using your existing Google, Facebook or Twitter account. When uploading video you?re welcome to include URLs or links in Description field. Optional: After uploading video we suggest that you share it once on Facebook, Twitter or through Email. This is recommended to get initial wave of traffic and you can do sharing directly through our site.


    When anyone watches your video, half way through the video, the viewer sees a screen asking them to either Like video on Facebook or Tweet it on Twitter to continue watching video immediately. Or viewer can wait 2 minutes and video will continue playing. Our site verifies Facebook Likes and Twitter Tweets using Facebook/Twitter APIs. The site is also mobile optimized and videos play on mobile (tested on Android & iPhone native browsers). We?re also using Amazon S3 & CloudFront, so video play should be pretty fast without any buffering issues unless viewer is on a very slow internet connection.


    We would really appreciate your feedback. We built this site specifically for internet marketers and others using video to promote their sites or products. If you run into any problems or have any suggestions to improve site, please let me know in this thread.

    I like the idea, but something like this will never get big, since people will be fed up with being forced to shared the stuff or wait 2 minutes. You need to find another way to get them to share the video, but where you won't annoy the shit out of people, which your current setup will definitely do. Many things running through my head, but I don't share my ideas free. Goodluck

    No adult for now since we don't have an 18+ warning, but otherwise feel free to upload any kind of video

    Thanks for your feedback, I didn't really think of this earlier but can see your point. I guess its something we'll try to improve in future. If you have some ideas to share or would like to possibly help us out with site and become part of project feel free to send me a private message.

    looks like a great idea, I hope it goes well for you.

    I would tend to agree with the comment about viewers being turned off by forced sharing. Social trends seem to indicate people want things faster and for free ( even complaining about ads on free services ) - hard problem to crack :)

    Thanks for review. Yeah I see your point, me and my partner are trying to figure out a way to encourage video sharing while not annoying viewers as much. Once we fix issue I'll post update on this thread.
