Down with Youtube!
You’ve probably seen that we have posted several pieces from Vimeo. You may have guessed it, and yes, you are right, we love it! Vimeo is similar to youtube except it uses up to date technology not 5+ year old crud. Vimeo allows you to upload and view full high definition H.264 videos. Sha-wing! And it’s free for all users. It’s interesting to see these new players popping up as we rapidly head toward TV and Internet converging. Another example is Joost – the internet TV station started by Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis of Skype. Joost works by downloading an application which runs on your desktop.
You then use the interactive navigation to surf the 480 channels and 24,000 programs currently on there. While not full HD quality, it is decent enough to play full screen. And this one’s free too.
