We don’t drop hits, we drop bombs

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

Video Bomb is here! You can check out our new website for aggregating and finding your favorite videos starting right now:

Video Bomb – videobomb.com

We figured that people like when video recommendations point them to good videos, so we built a site that lets people bump their favorite videos in one central location and share their favorites with friends. At Video Bomb you can submit links to cool videos, ‘bomb’ videos you like so that more people will see them, and make and share your own video channel.

We have been working on this site for the last couple of months and we’re psyched to have it ready for you. The two primary functions of Video Bomb are to let you create your own channel of videos you like and help to bring out the best videos on the web. Every time you bomb a video on Video Bomb, that video gets added to your own video RSS feed. This means that you can instantly become your own filter for videos you like and make your own channel of videos that will work in DTV (and iTunes). Videos that get lots of bombs in a short period of time move up to the front page.

We initially created Video Bomb so that people using DTV could easily create their own channel of video links and share those channels with their friends. Right now you can subscribe to any Video Bomb feed in DTV and soon you’ll be able to bomb a video from within the app. The web component of Video Bomb is sort of a combination of Digg.com and del.icio.us– people will bomb both to generate their own video channel and also to help the community filter up what’s most popular (yes, we are planning a bookmarklet).

You can start off with Video Bomb now and in two weeks when DTV Windows is released, you’ll have more than enough reason to double the number of videos you watch.
