Collect your YouTube videos with WorldTV

When Alx Klive, WorldTV‘s CEO, visited me last week I thought his idea for building a video channel was a bit, um, unfinished. After playing with the technology I still think that of the public site it builds (here’s mine, which consists of the videos I just collected into my library) but I LOVE being able to collect videos from YouTube and other sites into a library.

Anyway, in this video we talk about WorldTV and his new company that’s going after a new video aggregation market.

One nice thing about the public channel it creates is that YouTube’s videos now are full screen. Plus it has search feature so you can search a variety of engines like AOL and YouTube from inside your video library. Makes it easier to find new things you’d like to add to your show.

  1. I can see what you mean, Worldtv seems very unfinished. It’s sort of we nearly got there but kinda drifted off. With 15 employee’s you’d think one would have done some design and one would have done some UI on it.

    It wasn’t too long ago they were trying to sell the domain name, so perhaps there is something else up their sleeve.

    I always think that a lack of founders channel and updates never bodes well for a service. I mean if they don’t use it why should anyone else!

  3. it seems really cool, hopefully they’ll include support for some of the growing ad supported video sites too (metacafe, revver + more)… there’s a lot of good content on them too… especially the “how to’s” on metacafe.

  5. Steal from the stealers. No honor among thieves? And until YouTube improves quality, full-screen is not a good thing. It used to be 500 channels with nothing to watch, now it’s 500,000 videos with even less to watch.

    Gosh, hope WGA wins. Good video/TV/film is not even about the medium, it’s about the writing.

  7. Hi Robert,
    have a look at VodPod.com. They offer a similar service which is very easy to use, even easier than WorldTV. Only the full screen mode is missing.
    Here’s an example how your own channel can look like, but you can customize it quite a bit, everything is based on CSS.

  9. I think this is a great idea and we’re sure to see a bunch of copycats in this space. As the lines between the aggregators of links, videos, blogs, text, pictures, etc becomes more blurry, it will be interesting to see who will succeed as being the “ultimate aggregator.”

    Robert, that’s amazing! I always thought that if somebody could make YouTube videos full screen, they would have a pretty handy app on their hands.
