New Media Links For 11/12/2008:

  • The U.S. military is taking on YouTube. It’s launched TroopTube – a site for troops, their families and supporters – a year and a half after restricting access to YouTube and other video sites. It’s like YouTube, but without the audience.
  • blinkx is claiming to have 32 million hours of video indexed in its search engine, which uses speech recognition to identify words spoken within the video.
  • Fast Company thinks Hulu, not YouTube, will dominate the future of video. This echoes what we were saying in July: Hulu has built a library of long tail content with advertisers lined up to sponsor it; YouTube has built up a library of long tail user-generated content that’s very difficult or, in some cases, impossible to get sponsors for. You can’t count YouTube out, though, because it’s moving fast to copy Hulu’s model.
