Better than YouTube? December 20, 2007

Posted by gordonwatts in computers, life.

I’m sick of the really grainy videos that YouTube has. They are good for what they are there for – but I have (had, will have) a nice high resolution camcorder and I’d like to be able to show off the food splatter that Julia is so good at making in its full detail.

Are there sites around like YouTube that let you post in DVD or HD resolution and serve them up in a similar way/interface? Cross platform is a must. If I find anything I’ll post about it. The site doesn’t have to be free. I’m looking for something like Flickr… It doesn’t have to be free.

Maybe you could try vimeo.

Stage6 (http://www.stage6.com/) allows higher resolutions. I don’t use it, so you should probably check it out first to see if it is adequate.

Thanks for both of those suggestions. I’ll try them out after break!

Yep, vimeo.com is the one you’re looking for. Saludos!

Great download and viewing options.

Don’t find to many grainy videos these days on utube. With HD now available, all the grainy videos are a collection of older videos. I do like watching some of the older funny videos on youtube.

True true. It is a lot better now! But this was written back in 2007! 🙂
