Transforming Our Video Sharing Site
When UnleashVideo was launched last summer (of 2008) the idea was to provide a quality only video sharing network which would compete with the likes of YouTube, Metacafe, Revver, and others. With the video sharing space so competitive now in the form of thousands of sites there is no reason to compete directly against these players anymore.
Our strategy has shifted from allowing only pre-approved creators to upload video content, to only accepting uploads from collaborative production teams on Spidvid. So if you want to unleash videos on our site visit Spidvid and join their video production community.
Future video pages will feature content from Spidvid, have Facebook connect integration for comments, increased social features, and have Google Maps showing where each of the team members is based out of. These maps will show the global structure of the collaborative production teams, and outline that videos really can be created with members located all over the world.
The whole site is having a makeover to make each page more simple to navigate and use, and with less unnecessary features and images to display it will allow pages to load quicker, and videos to play faster which has been a past concern among viewers.
We expect this roll out to happen later next month just in time for Christmas. Thanks to everyone who has supported UnleashVideo 1.0 over the last year and a half, and we look forward to your engagement on our new and improved UnleashVideo 2.0 very soon.
