Veveo Streaming

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Veveo has taken the Web by storm. I know how “video” should be spelled, but I am talking about something else.

Veveo Inc. is a company that has just beta-launched its video searching vTap. This is a free service and is designed to enhance user experience on broadband enabled phones. The company claims that it has huge listings of Web videos — much more than any other video portal.

As everyone knows, although the latest smart phones come with big screens and have the capability of bringing video to life, finding a video that plays in a format compatible with the smart phone is a tough task, and most people give up because of the effort and time involved.

The main advantage of vTap lies in its ability to find videos even using phones and TVs. Although the videos on vTap are from several different sites and these online videos are in various formats that do not play on phones, Veveo converts the original video format into a format that can stream and play on a user’s particular phone.

This application is said to work on Windows Mobile, Nokia N-series, and many different handsets from manufacturers such as Sanyo, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, LG, and Samsung.
