So I was surfing the web, and came across TechCrunch – you know the guys the ones wth almost 800,000 RSS feed readers and gazillions of visitors to their site. Well anyway they had this write up on a new service called StartYourTube.com.
StartYourTube does exactly what the name implies. You can go onto the site, create your own “tube”, customize it with colors and graphics, mask it to your own domain, invite friends, and start loading content. The tubes not only host videos but have sections for pictures, audio files, and blogs as well.
So we popped on over to ensure that nobody squatted on OIBO – donachaknow it’ll become a household name some day…
So on top of being able to run your own YouTube copy-cat service, you have the chance at winning $500 – every friggin month! Now if that’s not cool, I don’t know what is.
So anyway you visit the site:
- Sign up for a free account
- Personalize YOUR tube
- Invite your friends
- Upload COOL content
- Make MONEY $$$ from advertising
- Spread the word Tube … isn’t that like “invite your friends???”
Signing up for an account is really, really painless:
Select a name for your tube – I use videoblogging.
Enter your name, postal code and country. If you’re into the porn thing – you can even create adult content for your Tube. We’re not into porn. Much too ugly for that.
Tada! Confirmation message and you’re done. You can check out a couple of Tubes we created. Nothing on ‘em right now…
Once you go to your Tube page, this is what the default looks like:
Not too fancy – but it looks a lot like YouTube.
