Curating Video Content Across The Web
New web and mobile application brings curation and "TV Anyhwere" capabilities to online video content.
With the deluge of content being added to the web on a rolling basis, there's a continuing push to develop tools that enable us to tap into and manage that experience. Nowhere is this perhaps more important than around online video, where a community site like YouTube sees 35 hours of new footage being added every minute, and in an ever-expanding marketplace where viewers can access streaming content across countless aggregators, media producers, new sites and brand pages. One new service that hopes to crack this conundrum is Squrl, a mobile and web application that enables people to pull in videos from popular sites like Hulu, Netflix, ESPN, DailyMotion and TED, and curate that content in one centralized dashboard.
