VodPod is a new video portal with a couple of opportunities for both private and professional purposes.
Essential element of the website is a video search engine, which searches videos at various third party video sharing sites and within the site itself. Furthermore the search engine has a live search feature displaying the latest added videos. Too, VodPod is a video sharing site enabling uploads.
Further features of the service are video widgets and a community function for the creation of complete own video sites. By the widgets one may share and show own video collections within a blog or at other websites. The community feature may serve as a complete solution to run an own video site. The basic version of the community is free. The premium version has some professional publishing characteristics, which enables either to run a video site free of ads or a business opportunity to earn money by displaying adverts.
