Why online video sharing is such a hot market?
Well the YouTube phenomenon which leads to other large companies such as Google, Yahoo and MySpace launching their own video sharing website do not come as a surprise. With millions of members and over 70 million videos clips hosted on Youtube, it is no doubt that there is a huge growing demand that leads to more and more people viewing online videos.
In fact, a recent study of US internet user behavior found that almost a third of users have uploaded something homemade onto the internet and that includes video clips. Video sharing sites are also used as marketing tool for many media companies as well as video uploads by web users who are using such sites as a platform to showcase their work or discoveries.
