I’m supposed to get paid for writing this review. Despite this, I hope to present my honest opinions.
Because quite a few Web 2.0 ideas are easy to replicate, these services give rise to clones. We know many sites that try to ride on the popularity of Orkut, Flickr and Digg. Video-sharing, revolutionised by YouTube (as evidenced by Google’s big-money takeover), isn’t without its fair share. So what makes AapkaVideo.com different?
First, the content. Desi-centric, which is the site’s raison d’etre. Today, for example, the site welcomes you with videos from Eklvaya.
The site’s design and layout are good. And so is the categorization. The first page has a list of popular tags, and popular videos too.
Video uploading is easy too, and surprisingly, users can upload files of a large variety of different types.
There is a lot of scope for additional features. For example, the site can introduce a rating system. Currently, the only provision for viewers is to classify a video as “Offensive”. Secondly, the search results page can use Google-like page numbering instead of just the Next and Previous buttons. Finally, the videos won’t load on Mozilla. Maybe the number of Mozilla users is just a minority, but still…
Overall, I would give the site 6.5 on 10.
