I visited the website and checked out the online presentation.
How does this company make money?

Possibly selling the information they gather by having us download their videos? Consumer information is pretty valuable it seems.

Veoh will make money by allowing publishers to charge for their content (an veoh will take a percentage), or by allowing publishers to give away their content, and share in advertising revenue (placing TV commercials on the content).

Let me know if you have any other questions…

I just get a message saying “Functionality unavailable while offline” ?

Thanks for the explanation, Dmitry.
I think this is an idea with potential; especially because it will allow for plenty of freedom of expression - something that the feds are trying to erode.
I give the concept, a thumbs up!

I got the “Functionality unavailable…” too when I know I was online.  Then the program just hanged.  I was curious about it but I just have to uninstall the program.  Won’t be back there unless there’s a certainty that it works.

Veoh sucks big balls. It takes way to long to load the installation, way too long to move about the browser and all the stuff is way hard to find. the search button doesnt work so you have to spend about a minute(on a cable modem)to move from one page to another. I havent downloaded anything ipod playable yet because all i have found from the first 11 pages of videos was home-made crap from stupid newbs that dont know what to make videos about. i cant even find p0rn. this sucks. i wouldnt try it.

Even at 9PM Hawaii time, when all of you mainlanders should be asleep, I can barely get this app to work.  Not ready for prime-time, IMO.  If the program would just give some feedback, like “standy”, or “loading video”, or even an hourglass.  I get nothing but a click (sometimes), then everything appears to lock up.

It works but it is very slow and choppy. Nothing I’ve tried to DL has yet. Very little is ipod ready,which I thought was the point of this.
There is no ‘home’ button so when you are pages deep trying to find something you have to hit ‘back’ over and over.
All this is is a video podcasting app where 90% of the content isn’t ipod format.

I downloaded no problem and managed to view the content pages, a little slow .

I agree with others that there should be something on screen which tells you you are downloading etc, because it does give you the impression that nothings happening.

I don’t entirely agree about the content though. I selected 6 different movie trailers which are in the ipod ready section, they downloaded fine all are between 5 and 18 mb for 3 6 mins.
This is where I have become unstuck, I can imprt them into Itunes no probs, but the sound is dodgy on a couple. Howeever when I try to click and drag the content into the 5g iPod, message pops up telling me I need to upgrade quicktime as some of this type of movie not compatible. I have even ran the content through Cucosoft my video content to ipod converter , ( which ordinarily work fine even for DVD’s) , but to no avail. There isn’t a very user friemdly help line only FAQ’s,though I havent contacted them via e mail yet.
