flickr vs. YouTube

The very name of my favorite photo-hosting web site ( brings to mind the sound a film projector makes. Movies are called flicks or flix sometimes. But only hosts still photos. I wish hosted video, too. I’ve uploaded a couple videos to YouTube, but I like the community aspect of better. YouTube allows comments and has a groups feature, but it’s just not the same. I want all my media eggs in one basket. lets you embed a link into your web page, so I’ve done that on my bike blog with my helmet cam videos. The 2 videos I’ve uploaded so far are crude, and I don’t know how many people outside my family would enjoy them, but here they are:

One is just the raw footage from the helmet cam, the other I spent way too long in iMovie for the results I got.

Do any of you share videos online, and what do you use?
