We discovered Peekvid towards the end of January, and found it as a pretty useful source for finding some of your favorite movies. They aggregate videos from YouTube and DailyMotion, and make an organized list of links so that it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
Shortly after we wrote about them for the first time, they went into a private beta, but it didn’t last too long. They have just re-launched as a public beta with a revamped look including Web 2.0 elements. The interface looks great, and the larger text makes everything easier to read.
One of the first things that I noticed on the new site besides the entirely new look, is the disclaimer at the bottom that reads: “Peekvid does not contain any content on its site, but is merely an index of available links on the Internet. Peekvid is committed to an industry solution that will provide a mechanism to compensate artists that create the work you enjoy watching. Peekvid would like to be part of the long term solution.”
I think it’s interesting that they made it a point to say that they don’t host any of the content, instead they just provide the links. So far, the site is running a bit sluggish, but hopefully that will be improving soon.
