Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
The online video community has turned to newcomer LiveClip.com as a leading alternative to YouTube.
Talented filmmakers, musicians and artists are growing increasingly tired of giant corporate sites and are turning to smaller alternatives like LiveClip.com. LiveClip.com is a totally independent site that focuses on promoting their artists who otherwise get lost on the bigger sites like YouTube and Google.
The plethora of videos on YouTube get lost in the shuffle or quickly dropped into the background due to their frustrating content structure and the massive amount of poor and amateur content uploaded each minute. Further, uploading restrictions and delays already found on Google Video make many users fear that they will also have similar problems getting their content posted with Google’s recent acquisition of YouTube.
While LiveClip.com has not yet achieved the overall numbers as the giant Google/YouTube mix, it is clear that LiveClip.com offers much more niche exposure and is amassing a growing following of talented artists as a result. Due to its simple structure and many featured spots, there is a much better chance of an artist’s videos being featured and viewed by more people who can find and appreciate them more on LiveClip.com. “I am out there working hard and doing professional work in music and it makes me sick to see it next to unprofessional amateurs doing karaoke, said Corey J. Tronchin, CEO/Founder of ProfessionalRockstars.com.” “To make a comparison, if YouTube is to the large movie multiplex, then LiveClip.com is the smaller art-house theater which offers richer and more meaningful content than Mentos explosions.”
For this reason, video uploaders and users are becoming very loyal to LiveClip.com and its ideology. In a recent sampling, LiveClip.com received a 99% user approval rating lending support to the notion that once people find LiveClip.com, they continue coming back. Putting an emphasis on quality content above numbers is what keeps LiveClip.com’s members so passionate about the site.
LiveClip.com is also one of three video sites (next to MTV) which feeds the new ILoveVideoz, Firefox and Internet Explorer Video search toolbar for music videos as well as new uploads. This is just one of the ways LiveClip.com is looking to increase exposure for its artists. LiveClip’s Founder, Rich Rodgers, has another innovative perk for LiveClip.com users.
He recently announced, “We are looking to support our talented artists by coming out with VIP accounts, which is like their own LiveClip site and gives them much more control over the display of their content and how it is organized. This also gives talented filmmakers, musicians and artists the tools they need to function like a big-name artist while introducing thousands of viewers to some really good content not found elsewhere.”
There is much speculation about where online video is headed and what may come of Google’s recent acquisition of YouTube. One thing that is clear is alternative sites like LiveClip.com are increasingly becoming the site of choice for many talented video makers, musicians and artists.
