Top 6 Secret Platforms That Will Help Your Video Succeed (Part 2/2)

<<< See Platforms 1-3

#4 – Dailymotion

Dailymotion should look familiar in both its focus and types of content that are permitted. The site, run out of France (founded in Paris in 2005), lets anyone upload their video content. Within a very similarly patterned ecosystem to YouTube, you can create groups, channels, and tags to guide traffic to your marketing video.

Note that the format you can use is virtually unlimited, with a max resolution of 1080p and top length/size of 60 minutes or 4.1 GB. The platform is optimized for 18 languages and 35 nations.

#5 – Photobucket

Photobucket has a similar focus to Flickr, being known more for images than video. One positive about this forum is that your videos can be substantially longer than the other photo-geared site allows.

Your video can be up to 500 MB, and up to 10 minutes long. Formats accepted include 3g2, 3gp, 3gp2, 3gpp, avi, divx, flv, gif, mov, mp4, mpeg4, mpg4, mpeg, mpg, m4v, and wmv.

#6 – Metacafe

Metacafe features music, TV episodes, film, sports highlights, and video gameplay – but anyone can upload. Duplicate content (i.e., plagiarism) is not allowed.

“Metacafe is unique because users are paid directly for popular videos,” said Liza Brown of Wondershare. “After reaching a 20,000 view threshold, each additional 1,000 views earns a $5 payment.”

Like Dailymotion, your max resolution is 1080p. Like Photobucket, your length limit is 10 minutes. Formats allowed are 3gp, avi, mpeg, mov, mp4, qt, and wmv.
