SelfcastTV – Britain's YouTube?


If you’ve not yet heard of YouTube, where have you been? It’s a video sharing site and arguably the net’s biggest phenomenon right now. So it’s no surprise to see other companies following the same path. One such site is SelfcastTV, from the people behind the video search engine. And it’s now available to use as a beta version.

As with YouTube, you can upload and share your videos, as well as searching and viewing those already uploaded to the site. And like YouTube, you can embed your video files into web pages using the code provided. But SelfcastTV does offer something a little different – on full launch, you’ll be able to publish videos direct from your mobile and download content to their iPod or PSP.

The company claims their new service also supports more formats than any other video sharing site and they also boast a faster turn around time from upload to download. It might also be more straightforward to use too, with SelfcastTV using the blinkx search technology and speech recognition to understand videos – saving you the effort of keying in the keywords.
