FlickR Clones

The acquisitions of FlickR, Picassa, Webshots, and Photosite — all sites for sharing still images — have inspired several companies to try the same thing, but for moving images.

YouTube and iFeeder are the latest to take this route, and both are still early stage. There are a bunch of others in wings, as well as Google’s free hosting service; innovation beyond simply cloning FlickR is needed here.

    This company provides real-time access to video and closed-captioned text. I saw a demo of the system which gives public relations and ad agency types the ability to view video based on key words and get back results within minutes of content going to air.

    This company provides real-time access to tv and cc text. To date I have not seen anything this robust.
