Sometime this Saturday, the uploaded consumer videos to VideoEgg will no longer be accessible. This is a long expected development and part of a strategic plan for VideoEgg to shift from being a video sharing site to an ad network.
This morning the company sent out a blast to all the users of the consumer service that videos will not be available after May 31 and suggested that users who want their clips download their files.
When Beet.TV started out in March, 2006, we used VideoEgg to publish our video files. We found it to be a very effective and user friendly. Very early on, it allowed users to post videos directly onto TypePad and other blogs. A great help.
So, thanks guys for building such a cool company and tools that have been so helpful to the video blogging community.
And, hey, if you have videos on VideoEgg, download them ASAP. Here’s info on saving files.
I have republished above my interview with VideoEgg CEO Matt Sanchez. We spoke at the NewTeeVee conference last November about the new focus of the company.
