    I made a search on veoh support and since I didn’t find anything…

    I’d like to suggest to add Veoh support to the video plugin so that it’ll work like youtube does:

    [veoh=http://www.veoh.com/videos/videoidhere]

    Thanks.

    Could you please explain why you want this particular one added?

    Timethief,

    Because it’s a nice alternative to youtube and, obviously, because I’d like to use it on my blog. I think it’d be nice to have this option too.

    Do they allow for embed’s? I’m not seeing anything listed for it. I see where they allow for cross posting over to Goole and Youtube…

    Please implement this one. I’m a Veoh user. It’s forcing me to switch to blogger because it supports Veoh’s code. It’s just like Youtube and they also allow video embed. Here is a sample of their embed code:


    <embed src="http://www.veoh.com/videodetails2.swf?permalinkId=v394225nnJNaKGZ&id=1591945&player=videodetailsembedded&videoAutoPlay=0" width="540" height="438" bgcolor="#000000" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed><br/>Online Videos by Veoh.com

    You can find this code at the lower-right side of the page.

    Best bet would be to suggest this feature via feedback on monday morning.

    Gotta admit though that if you’re taking video support over security and the other features that wp has and blogger doesn’t, you may want to think about it.

    But what ADVANTAGES does it have over YouTube? If it’s the same video quality and all, I can’t see a compelling reason to add it in. Revver at least shares revenue with the person who uploads the video, which in my mind is a serious reason to consider it. If veoh essentially just duplicates the YouTube service, it hardly makes sense to approve it. What does veoh do that YouTube doesn’t?

    To me, the quality looks better and allows for larger files. The larger files would be a big help as Youtube seems to cut out at 10 minutes per file.

    The viewer looks more professional as well.

    Um, go check out the Site that Must Not Be Named for an example. I, um, couldn’t resist those cheerleaders. :) :whistle:

    Nobody can resist a cheerleader. Or so Debbie tells me.

    Youtube is compressing the video too much for faster streaming and sacrficing the video quality. It doesn’t allow you to download the video your watching. It also limits each video upload within 10 minutes/100MB. While Veoh streams the video in it’s original quality, It’s available for download and has virtually no upload limits. The veoh player looks cool too and doesn’t stick their logo at the lower right side of the video when embedded.

    It’s not just a Youtube copy, it’s actually better.

    Another thing is it seems like Youtube is mucking up the timing on a lot of its videos. The mouths don’t match up with what’s being heard.

    How about GoogleVideo and DailyMotion? They offer a service like YouTube and they’re supported. Why not have Veoh as well? Like I said before, it’d be nice to have one more option to choose from.

    Drmike and rolandgalicio have already pointed out some of the advantages this service has that make it a slick (and better) alternative to YouTube.

    Revver at least shares revenue with the person who uploads the video

    Well, with Veoh you can make money too. If you’re a producer, you can apply for a PRO membership (which is free) and charge for your videos, like pay-per-view.

    The money generating bit may be what’s holding it back considing the policy on adverts.

    I am in support for Veoh. I just found it the other day but I think it surpasses youtube.

    I haven’t used Veoh, but am more inclined to support them given that they are fighting back against UMG and their lawyers:

    Well, it would be great to have Veoh here on wordpress.com. After all, we already have Daily Motion besides U2be and Googlevideo, and Veoh is just as good (to say the least).
