I've updated my Embed Comparisons site which offeres side by side live comparisons of the currently available video hosting sites. This is SD (HQ). HD is on its way.

I hope this site is useful to you!

Video Embedding Tests Page

Any tips or suggestions gratefully recieved. ;)

Hey, I think I'm 'going viral'. :o No, not swint flu! :D I had 300 hits on Saturday, 200 Sunday, 700 Monday, 800 yesterday.

Wow. I wish I was getting paid for this!

I started using Twitter a week ago, and it really works! A few big hitters have tweeted my link, like one with 30,000 followers :huh: on Monday, and it's made a huge difference. Of course the site has to be useful (which it is) to be recommended that way. Interesting phenomenon. And so fast!

If you're a twit too and want to be kept informed of any updates you can follow them here http://twitter.com/VideoEmbedTests


My server stats are a real mystery to me. One fun site I put up several years ago about a ski-ing holiday in the Czech Republic called "Daisy and Karel's Big Snowy Adventure" gets several visitors every day. Who are they? How did they get there...? :blink:

Speaking of Twitter....I'm currently trying to find out how many Twitter followers you can get without ever sending a tweet. So far I have 14 followers, but hopefully that will grow fast. Follow me! I promise you'll never hear from me.

Thank you. :D

This whole new social media thing is really quite interesting (though I can't escape the nagging feeling I could be spending my time more productively!) and I can see how it could help with seeding interest in an indie - and quite clearly I'm trying to do that myself. This short article is quite revealing: http://mashable.com/.../twitter-purge/
