- 12seconds. Twitter for video. Hosts video clips of 12 seconds or less, so it forces you to be succinct! Can be watched via the web or on a mobile device.
- ooVoo—video conferencing for business. Offers higher-quality video than other sites. Video chat for up to 6 people. It is proprietary software, so it must be downloaded.
- Tokbox. Allows connection to many people on the screen (the record so far is 21). www.tokbox.com. It is web-based, not proprietary. Because of the crowded screen, there is lots of confusion, and it is hard to figure out who is talking.
