      I go back to 2005 on this list, when Mike Hudack (co-founder of
      Blip.tv) & Steve Chen (co-founder of Youtube) were around & feeling
      out "web video".

      About a year ago, co-founders Mike & Dina Kaplan (?) left. Was there
      a change in direction by Blip.tv?

      I've been using Blip.tv as a video-host, Blogger as video-blog
      (embedding Blip.tv videos & iPod compatible video "enclosures"),
      iTunes as video-podcaster.

      I just tried to setup a Blip.tv account, to hose videos for my "2013
      Rose Bowl pre-event" coverage,


      but was denied:

      Can someone recommend a suitable video-host? I see Vimeo is pretty
      popular, but is there a paywall? Is Youtube an option?

      [ I always resisted, since they claim ownership of video..is this
      still the case? Plus, it never fit the rigid definition of video-
      blogging. You end up setting up a Youtube channel with episodes ]

      Is Youtube the "600lb gorilla" in web-video, & taken over?

      What about iTunes video-podcast, how does it rank versus Youtube?
      Where do people host iTunes videos?

      You can see my video-blogging, using Blip.tv, Blogger, iTunes at


      since 2005.
