See Things Differently
In a previous post, we noted how there were blogs blogging blogs, such as Hype Machine and Critical Metrics. Now uLinkx provides an interesting development in the video market. With a new video sharing site seemingly launched every week, uLinkx provide a solution to avoid having to visit multiple sites. It pulls in video from popular video share sites such as YouTube, Google, Revver, Metacafe, MSN and MySpace and provides an interface to watch, share, playlist and bookmark videos, regardless of which site the video was originally uploaded to. Therefore, type in an artiste name, such as Jamiroquai, and the range of choice is astounding. It throws up some interesting questions….
As with many other new sites, uLinkx pay out revenue to registered users by sharing the Google Ad Sense revenue associated with a video or playlist.
The best application we can think of for this site is the Playlist function. Since the playlist can consist of videos from any of the main video share sites, you can effectively create an ‘All Time’ playlist, then use a widget to share the playlist on a blog or social network (which allows Java script).
