Watch Brightcove Hosted Videos

Brightcove launching video marketplace:
"“As the mainstream consumer moves into watching video on the Internet it will evolve from short humorous clips into programming that’s meaningful to a broad cross-section of mainstream individuals, Brightcove CEO Jeremy Allaire said. "
Top 100 Brightcove Buzz Videos.

Brightcove is now open to vloggers to make money off of their videos via ad sharing or pay per view.

Update, The Brightcove Network Launch:
There are a ton of other incredibly existing things that we're also introducing today, including our new PublishPod, a free desktop tool for Macintosh and Windows that allows anyone to easily encode and upload media into our system. It provides professional level encoding tools to anyone, ensuring high-quality content experiences. It also handles uploads of very large files -- say, a 3GB WMV HD file you're publishing to sell, or a 2-hour show for streaming distribution. There are no limits on file size or video length.

I've been waiting to try out their new Macintosh upload tool. It uses a Sorenson codec to encode to Flash 7. the Windows cersion uses the On2 VP6 codec which encodes to Flash 8. You can still use your own encoder.

Uploading a 3GB video file? Unheard of. Until today.
