Daily Motion - International Video Web Host and Distribution

Daily Motion is popular outside of the U.S. for uploading videos and distributing but there are some Yanks that use is as their primary video upload spot. I viewed the U.S. version of the site.

That means that user generated videos are being pushed into the corners or it might be harder to find. You still can locate them at Daily Motion but you might not want to have your video placed next to Horndog Production's, Bath Time. No disrespect intended.

If you are posting the video to your blog it might not matter. If you are sending folks to Daily Motion directly to view the video or they come via a search engine then yes can be a concern.

This is an international website with the home base in Paris, France. Some of videos are not as puritanical as what floats by on American based distribution sites.

You will see advertisements or experience a pop-up ad or two. It is a web host option. It may or may not meet your needs.
