Beyond YouTube

With Google’s acquisition of YouTube being final this week, it’s getting an awful lot of attention. There must be more to media streaming than YouTube. Check out Dion Hinchcliffe’s Web 2.0 blog on the range of alternatives and competitors. It’s a nice summary and review of an emerging major content provision channel that matters to library land.

Here’s the short list (They’re all nicely linked on Dion’s post – Yeah, I’m lazy tonight):
YouTube
Movielink
iTunes
Apple
Eyespot
Blip.tv
Veoh
