I prefer youtube.com because it has all those hilarious blooper and gag reel videos :)

I like youtube.com better, too. Especially if I am looking for funny videos.

Sounds interesting, especially for libraries, schools, non-profits etc. and people who want to make professional videos but don't have experience yet.

Looks like a great outlet for budding producers of content. Free sounds like the right price, too, especially for a service that offers higher resolutions. I wish all these services had been around fifteen years ago...

This site is not near as much fun as youtube but I do know some kids who have used this site.

Well I agree with the other folks, in the main youtube has more vids to offer - on important topics like "lindy Hop" dancing! - although I thought I found the same lindy hop vid on both sites (hmm). Blip did have some interesting-looking featured vids on its home page though. But Free is something.

Free is definetly something!

I think those 2 guys in the video will be what my son and his friends will be like in 20 years!! All of these video sites can be fun or informing, just depends on what you are looking for.

I like youtube better, too; however, Blip is an interesting alternative for creative sorts. Loved the swimming pool video.

Free original programming...this could be fun. It does seem perfect for the creative person with time on his/her hands! I did not know this is existed.
