Viddyou Launches YouTube Clone for Video Bloggers

New Rev2.org Design (2007)

VIddyouIt’s been a while since I’ve written about a YouTube clone (so 2006, right? 😉 ), so I thought I’d break the silence and write about one of the latest ones which has actually quite impressed me — not as being a great product, but as being one of the most original, creative and somewhat useful (for its intended audience) clones I’ve seen to date.

How It Works

With the growing number of individual video bloggers that we’ve been seeing on YouTube — you know, the LonelyGirl type except that they’re not a marketing play — Viddyou aims to cater to this audience. While it doesn’t really differentiate itself too much from YouTube, it does look a bit more simple and to-the-point, it makes it much easier to post videos — the whole process and everything, and you can, if you have a webcam and a mic, record it directly into the site. I have to admit, while all these things can be done on YouTube itself, Viddyou does make it easier to an extent and it’s good in a way to have a whole community of people like you rather than a scattered community of different people and a few hundred people like you.

Opinion

Viddyou is a good attempt, but we have to come back to the basic questions. Can it be the next YouTube? No. Will it get some traction? Yes. Will it get anywhere? Probably not. While it’s a cute product, it’s a bit late into the game — a few months earlier, and they would’ve had at least some chance.
