Editor's Note: The Video Site Cheat Sheet has been updated several times since this post was first published on July 4. The most recent version (and all future versions) can be found right here: http://www.lightreading.com/videoshare.

1:00 AM -- Thanks for all the emails about the first Video Site Cheat Sheet. Your comments challenged me personally and professionally, as did your spelling and grammar.

Following is a new, improved version with 13 additional sites added to the list:

Table 1: The Philter's Video Site Cheat Sheet II

Web Site Does the service offer video editing capability? What's the file size limit? How much does it cost? Can I keep a video private? Does it require a software download?

Don't know much about it, but http://eefoof.com/ supposedly pays you a percentage if your posted video gets lots of hits.

This is an interesing business model!
