Since last summer, we've been keeping a list that compares the features of every video sharing site we could find. The market is very crowded, with more than 80 sites currently on the list.
One way companies are attempting to pull away from the pack is to offer a way for content contributors to get paid. Some Websites let you earn money for their work, and some offer to pay you outright.
In this report, Light Reading explores the payment details of eight prominent video sharing sites:
- Blip.tv has the greatest profit potential among those sites, provided your content appeals to the right set of advertisers.
- Break.com is the most subjective of the lot, offering to simply pay cash for videos its staff likes.
- Competitive pressures forced Lulu.tv to switch business models. It went from charging $14.95 a month to sharing a percentage of pooled ad revenues with content creators.
