Thanks for the 30 ‘told you so’ emails over night! ;)Well Peekvid is back up. Some shows haven’t made the transition yet it and the site itself seems a fair bit slower than I remember – maybe its the bugs being ironed out.I still think the ajax interface over at Channelsurfr is more slick and once it get the content up there it could be a good competitor. That said the Peekvid interface update is nicely done. They like ChannelSurfr have now moved to a combination of Youtube, DailyMotion etc.I also noticed Peekvid’s new don’t sue us disclaimer:
Peekvid does not contain any content on its site, but is merely an index of available links on the Internet. Peekvid is committed to an industry solution that will provide a mechanism to compensate artists that create the work you enjoy watching. Peekvid would like to be part of the long term solution.
Which is a bit of Baloney. Compensating just artists? ummm… sure. While you’re at it you still owe YouTUBE and DailyMotion for hosting your files – there a bits more compensation needed within this system than just going straight to Youtube. And if I were Youtube I would force users to traffic my website for commercial works like this – but I digress.Peekvid’s back up, there’s some new competition, and so its “Entertainment for all – until someone shuts it down” again.
