Veoh Launches Improved Service

Feb 13, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Online video site Veoh Networks launched its revamped service today after beta testing last year.

The site now includes better reporting tools for video producers as well as new features for users, such as a downloadable video player that lets consumers download and watch content from various sites.

Veoh is also expanding its online syndication business. Previously, the site has allowed users to syndicate videos to Google, YouTube and MySpace. Now it’s added Facebook to the mix, as well as individual blogs and iTunes. The company said its new reporting tools allows Veoh publishers to monitor the performance of their videos across major sites.

Veoh’s retooling comes during a time of increased competition in the online video sector. Competitor Brightcove recently announced deals with TV Guide, Buena Vista Television and TMZ, while ROO recently landed funding from News Corp.

According to Nielsen Net Ratings, Veoh is the 15th most visited online video site, logging about 520,000 unique viewers monthly.
