    Dear BHW.

    I would like to present you early beta - ********** - The hassle free video sharing.


    Problem - video hosting companies are becoming more greedy. All the annoying video ads, banner spam and limitations are making it unfriendly to use. The problem was also that during Arab Spring there was not even one anonymous way to upload videos - each uploader was risking his and his family life. We all know that US based companies are more likely to pass information about uploaders to governments...
    Solution - ********** - The hassle free video hosting.


    Why Vidicy?

    -no video ads before or after videos
    -no annoying banner spam all over the page
    -you can upload video without account with easy drag and drop option
    -each uploader have set of unique setting to use - you can add your own banner under video to link to your site, to affiliate offer etc. or you can just pass your Adsense ID and you will get your own ads displayed where you get paid directly for each click!
    -you can social lock video within the system! Require your viewers to "Like" your video page before viewing it!
    -strong servers - we utilize strong servers in UK on guaranteed 1 Gbps connection with direct connection to Fiber connecting both US and Asia. UK servers give us better protection against US lobbying companies!
    All videos are private - the link wont be public unless you will share it with your friends.
    -we make it easy - we are "the" friendly video sharing website. We challenge major video sites with user friendly service. We do not require you to register in order to upload/see videos, we do not have limits for video views, we are open for suggestions.


    What is allowed, what is not?

    You can upload anything besides videos that are illegal or adult. Our website is family friendly so please no adult, crime, hate, racism, violence and other things not suitable for viewer.
    This is the same for banner uploads - please do not link to sites mentioned above.


    Development timeframe:

    Until end of weekend - minor bugs fixed, footer links finished and populated.
    16-22 July - further development of user area, adding Twitter to social lock, possibly adding Adcenter to allowed banners by id, refreshing upload area.
    23-29 July - final security fixes, transferring domain over to Content Delivery Network, fixing all reported errors, finishing up design.


    We are in early beta as of now. Before releasing to Reddit/Web we would like to test our service. We are welcoming all video marketers to test our system and report bugs or suggest features.
    Our current server is located in US for 1-2 more weeks until we will outgrow it - we have prepared 3 servers in UK - each on 1 Gbps guaranteed network and with lots of resources. We are able to add new servers within 48 hours - so do not worry about testing bigger amount of traffic with us.

    Thank you for kind words!
    You are welcome to test our service.

    Thanks man for kind words!

    Thanks a lot. Keep us updated!

    No more. No more video ads and monopoly by one large company.

    Thank you - I hope so too.

    All uploades are private per default. They will stay private unless they will get some number of likes (which will move them to home page - you can turn off this option on uploading though) or unless you will share the link with friends.
    Because of this you are responsible for what you upload. If we will get any notification about copyright videos uploaded - we will of course take them down - we follow the UK law - where our servers and company will be located. We will update our terms and conditions tomorrow or on Sunday - so you will be able to see exactly what is allowed and what is not.

    Hi Guys.

    We have updated our terms and we are in fully workable beta now.

    Remember - you can upload any content anonymously - we will remove only reported videos ;)

    Advertised as hassle free but I gotta login to FB and like the page before I can view a video? Not as hassle free as I'd like it to be...just my 2 cents.

    Nope, you dont - check the website and you will see.
    We left the option to social lock for marketers that uses content locking on their own domains with embed videos, but so far I think we dont even have 1 video in system (with few dozens uploads already) that is locked.

    OK, now they all should be free to watch.
    There had to be some bug. I removed the social lock from the code.
    I will get my developer to clean it later on.
    Thank you for suggestion - this feature is permanently removed now.
    If anyone is still getting it - please click ctrl + f5 to refresh cache.
