1:00 AM -- Here's an updated view of the Web Video Cheat Sheet, your favorite menu of online video sharing Websites.

Great news! This list is now available in a more robust, dynamic, yourfavoritebuzzwordhere form -- complete with site descriptions, target audience info, and editor's picks -- at Contentinople.

Over at C'nople, they call it the Video Sharing Guide. It doesn't sound as exciting as "Cheat Sheet," but rest assured they do have all the latest dirt on the world of online video. For example, they've got a full profile of what's happening at Crackle (formerly Grouper), which changed names and strategies just as this latest list was being finalized.

Of course, this resource is always missing something because there are SO MANY FREAKIN' video share sites out there. Just today I heard about YourFileHost, a site that will probably make this list in the coming weeks (but not now, I'm too tired). Anyway, enjoy the list and visit Contentinople early and often.

Visitors here may be interested in a site I've set up with embedded videos from the major video hosting sites showing their capabilities: http://kareltests.co.uk/

It's only been up a few weeks and is evolving, so any suggestions for improvements are welcome. Next update due Feb 2009.

Time will surely tell how well many of these video sites fare as they are now realizing that it is more about monetizing rather then the sheer number of users.

re: Web Video Cheat Sheet
Thanks for listing us. Sorry if we appear as "kind of a mess," but it is a massive task to try and classify so many video sites. We took a "Craigslist" approach and just wanted to make it easy to find and search sites without focusing much on the look of the UI. Any suggestions on how we can improve things would be appreciated. It is definitely an evolving work in progress site and still very conceptual at this point in time.

On a more positive note, we now have over 2 million visitors per month and are one of the top 6K websites in the U.S. (Alexa), so we must be doing a few things right.

re: Web Video Cheat Sheet
I know. It's a daunting job and it's really hard to say how many of these firms are even going to last long enough to list.

But I'll check your updated site frequently and will update my comments soon as this list, too, is an ongoing effort.
