myVidster Goes Public!

Post imported from DP

For the last six months I have been working on a personal project during my free time. I wanted a video bookmarking system that was simple to use, provide organization controls (sort, edit, categorize, move, etc) and could also be used as a video gallery to present my videos to a larger audience.

So after hundreds of hours of coding I created myVidster.

What makes myVidster special?
Provides a bookmarklet to add video clips from any video host, site or blog.
FLV download from the bookmarklet and gallery
Full support for Flash/Quicktime/Windows Media/DivX
Dynamic thumbnail creation for any video site (you can select from 3 thumbnails).
Presentation layer using a gallery/channel interface.
Provides relations with other users (show you other users who are collecting the same videos)
mySpace style urls (www.myvidster.com/marques)
Full text search engine (the real thing!!!) for your personal collection and for the myVidster network.

TODO:
I am still working on the subscription function to allow users to subscribe to channels and galleries and I will be merging search results very soon.

myVidster is open to the public, right now I have been very busy with my day job (it pays my bills) and have not been marketing it, but when I free up some time I will start making some noise

Here are few galleries that myself and my friends have created.

if you have not guess it, we are all salsa dancers .
