JAN 17, 2012, Kathmandu – Good News for the Media companies, movie producers, music video producers, bloggers and social site owners in Nepal that finally Nepali Video hosting (sharing) scenario has been changed as Latest Video uploading, watching and sharing site specially designed for Nepali video content has been started.
As the demand of video sites for the Niche market portfolio, recently clonevideos.com started hosting videos to its server located in the USA and broadcasting more than 20, 000 videos specially choosen by moderators and admin to the public viewing.
What is a Video Sharing?
A video hosting service allows individuals to upload video clips to an Internet website. The video host will then store the video on its server, and show the individual different types of code to allow others to view this video. The website, mainly used as the video hosting website, is usually called the video sharing website.
Because many users do not have unlimited web space, either as a paid service, or through an ISP offering, video hosting services are becoming increasingly popular, especially with the explosion in popularity of blogs, forums, and other interactive pages. The mass market for camera phones has increased the supply of user-generated video. Traditional methods of personal video distribution, such as making a DVD to show to friends at home, are unsuited to the low resolution and high volume of camera phone clips. In contrast, current broadband Internet connections are well suited to serving the quality of video shot on mobile phones. Most people do not own web servers, and this has created demand for user-generated video content hosting.
Purpose of Video sharing:
Save on bandwidth costs, often eliminating costs entirely Creating a common place Make a hassle-free experience, where uploading a video and streaming or embedding would normally require advanced programming knowledge. It is now commonly achieved through a web browser, with little programming experience. Sharing your videos can be used to grow your business online, broadcast news, promote your recent movies, music videos, and to showcase your company to the wider audience around the world.
Before YouTube changed the way Videos were hosted on the web, the first internet video hosting site was shareyourworld.com. Just like the modern hosting services, it allowed users to upload clips or full videos in different file formats. It was founded in 1997 by Chase Norlin and it ran till 2001 where it closed due to budget and bandwidth problems. There are thousands of video hosting, sharing sites now with different features, different niche and different services, some of them are charging for uploading and many of them are free.
Some web sites prefer to use open video formats such as Ogg or WebM. See also VP8 and HTML5-TV and Category:Free video software. In particular, the Wikipedia community advocates the Ogg format and some web sites now supports searching specifically for WebM videos. On some web sites, users share entire videos by breaking them up into segments that are about the size of the video length limit imposed by the site (e.g. a 15 minute video length limit). An emerging practice is for users to obfuscate the titles of feature-length films that they share by providing a title that is recognizable by humans but will not match on standard search engines. Please bare in mind that any copyright violations reported videos will be removed from the site as soon as possible.
A more recent application of the video hosting services is in the mobile web 2.0 arena, where video and other mobile content can be delivered to, and easily accessed by mobile devices. While some video-hosting services have developed means by which video can be watched on mobile devices, mobile-oriented web-based frontends for video hosting services that possess equal access and capability to desktop oriented web services have yet to be developed.
A mobile live streaming software called Qik allows the users to upload videos from their cell phones to the internet.
The videos will then be stored online and can be shared to various social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Videos will be stored on the servers and can be watched from both the mobile devices and the website.
As Clonevideos.com is a social video sharing, started with limited budget, the owner of the service is looking for financial support, your advertisement on the site or your video ads, or just support by uploading your genuine videos that matters to the world of entertainment industry.
Update Note: Clonevideos is no more existing as video hosting site rather it is having some advertisements only as of 08-04-2019. Nepali owner has long ago canceled the service.
