Congratulations VideoEgg...

Videoegg AOL's Beta version of AOL Uncut went live today (via Techcrunch).

AOL UnCut is powered by (First Round Capital portfolio company) VideoEgg.  Congratulations to the Videoegg team for such an elegant integration.  VideoEgg is powering the video hosting/streaming for dozens of other websites, including Bebo.  Rather than create yet another video destination site, VideoEgg lets any website owner integrate video into their site for free – providing the hosting, transcoding, editing seamlessly (try it out at http://www.videoegg.com/affiliate/).

I continue to believe that the online video game will be won by a company that works with existing destination sites rather than building competitive new destinations.  Time will tell..

This looks like a 'try before you buy' deal for AOL. I can't see another major player doing a deal like this after this one. However videoegg may still make sense for smaller players that don't want to build and manage their own video infrastructure. Congrats to Videoegg!
