Web Video Cheat Sheet

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.

— Phil Harvey, Person of the Year, Light Reading

About the Author(s)

Phil Harvey

Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading

Phil Harvey has been a Light Reading writer and editor for more than 18 years combined. He began his second tour as the site's chief editor in April 2020.

His interest in speed and scale means he often covers optical networking and the foundational technologies powering the modern Internet.

Harvey covered networking, Internet infrastructure and dot-com mania in the late 90s for Silicon Valley magazines like UPSIDE and Red Herring before joining Light Reading (for the first time) in late 2000.

After moving to the Republic of Texas, Harvey spent eight years as a contributing tech writer for D CEO magazine, producing columns about tech advances in everything from supercomputing to cellphone recycling.

Harvey is an avid photographer and camera collector – if you accept that compulsive shopping and "collecting" are the same.
