Get On Your Soapbox with MSN!

Posted by @ 1:47 am

With video sharing being the thing to do online at the moment, MSN has jumped on the bandwagon and beta launched its own video hosting service called “Soapbox on MSN Video“. The service adds uploading and sharing capabilities for user-generated content to MSN’s existing video site which up to now only contained licensed material. Access to the beta test is restricted on an invitation-only basis, but Microsoft say that they are planning on rolling out the service fairly quickly.

How does MSN plan to compete against the hugely popular YouTube service? The main differences to YouTube seem to be a larger viewing screen for the videos and more advanced networking and sharing options which add a new dimension of user-friendliness to video sharing.

You can find a good extensive review of Soapbox on MSN Video on the BusinessWeek website.
