VideoBam Launches Video Hosting Platform, Brings Private Hosting and HTML5 Streaming to Online Video

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2010

VideoBam, ( a new hosting platform by the San Francisco based firm that focuses on high traffic media and utility driven sites, has released a free video hosting solution for all media devices including those that are flash-restricted. As part of a larger network of media driven sites built around storage and hosting, VideoBam will leverage features most-in-demand by content providers and Internet users that view, share and have a need to upload and host videos. Unlike YouTube and Vimeo, VideoBam is geared towards allowing members to control the content based on their personal preferences.

Cross-Browser Compatibility

As content is delivered to smaller devices, the inability to view Flash on such devices as the iPad and the iPhone, make it difficult to reach an audience for many content providers.

VideoBam video hosting supports most video formats. In addition, VideoBam offers the ability to quickly encode in H.264 and stream to all desktop and media devices whether Flash is enabled or not. The media file format also paves the way for playback on upcoming Internet TV and tablet devices.

Privacy, A Growing Necessity in Online Services

VideoBam video upload and hosting features “unlisted” private short URLs to keep content private, unless shared. “As the use of popular sites such as Facebook and Twitter become more and more prevalent in our daily lives, privacy is an-ongoing concern. Every one of the services in our network offer easy-to-use privacy settings without re-purposing content or sharing through unauthorized use by third-party applications,” stated Chief Executive Officer, Adam Oliver. “We make privacy our priority for our user base. Not everyone wants their private or personal moments broadcast across the Internet.”
