Since Ning decided to cut free sites, many communities are scrambling to figure out what’s next for them. While it’s unfortunate that many folks will have to find a new home, it’s also exciting to think that they’ll be able to find a solution more suited to their specific needs. And if your community is organized around video, let us humbly recommend Miro Community.
Miro Community takes a unique approach to creating a video community, letting you draw on the power of existing videos around the web. MC makes adding video easy, allowing you to focus on building your community engagement. Want to add every episode a certain producer has put on blip.tv or Vimeo or YouTube? Just drop their profile URL into Miro Community, and the site will be automatically populated with embedded videos and the attendant information. Do the same with single videos from supported video host sites, and have the flexibility to bring in videos from pretty much anywhere. Want to encourage users to submit videos, but don’t want to totally cede control? Miro Community has a built in review queue where you can preview user-submitted videos and make adjustments to the accompanying text fields. And to top it off, you’ll be supporting a nonprofit organization committed to democratic media.
