We are impressed with the new HD platform for clips on Dailymotion, the fast-growing video sharing site in France. HD was introduced to the site today.
While some publishers and video sharing sites are presenting video in high quality Flash, most provide a lower resolution on the embed, the file used by bloggers and social networks to grab and share a video. The quality of the Dailymotion HD clips appear to maintain the HD format in the shared, off-site embedded versions. See how cool a music video looks above. The embedded file of a Vimeo clip below looks pretty good too.
