VideoEgg opens service to most publishers
continues to make strides with its web video publishing service. The company is releasing an integration kit tomorrow that will make it easy for web site owners to add VideoEgg's video publisher and player into their sites. This will make it easy for publishers to begin accepting video submissions from people - without the associated storage and bandwidth costs, since the video files live on VideoEgg's servers.
Until now, people could only use VideoEgg, which encodes all video into Flash, with a blogging account such as Typepad or Blogger, or through a special partnership with the San Francisco company.
The VideoEgg service is free for now, though an ad-supported model is in the offing.
VideoEgg also announced the acquisition of the assets of Popcast, a San Francisco start-up that made a downloadable video player. "Several'' of Popcast's top managers will join VideoEgg. Not sure if that will include David Weekly, who created the IM Smarter service we wrote about here and the PeanutButterWiki service.

Unless the world has changed in the last few hours, it doesn't include David Weekly.
Video Egg has a great service and I congratulate them on moving into this space.
As an FYI to your readers, we at Vidiac.com have been doing this for over a year now already, and currently have over 250 Channel web sites with people creating their own "YouTube" for free under their own URL. We too started with an ad-supported service and have recently launched an enhanced ad-free service as well.
We have been very succesful with this and today stream close to 2 million videos a day to 3 million unique visitors a month.
As I'm sure the management of VideoEgg have seen, every day there is a new "Flickr of Video" and the next evolution of this space will be video-enabling existing branded sites.
