    I just tried this service out. The most fun I had with it was signing up (the front page is quite pretty). There are clips that you can browse from the site or on a phone – many of them are collected through RSS feeds. But there are still apparently a lot of bugs with the service.

    First, videos are not streamed to the phone. They are sent as an MMS.

    The first video I selected to watch, it said that the clip was too large to be sent to the phone. So, I found another clip to send, and it was successful. But when I got the message, the video was very choppy – starting and stopping. The audio would just belt out a noise for half a second before stalling for another 6-10 seconds. The clip was supposed to be a minute long, but the video had stopped 15 seconds into it; the audio continued its cycle of noise/silence/noise.

    Watching the videos on my PC through the website was not much better.

    This is clearly still in Beta. Anyone else have any better experiences?
