Based in San Diego, California, Veoh is a web television company that in its first year in 2008 alone, it already had 17 million unique visitors each day! Distributing videos by ABC, US Weekly, Ford Models, Billboard, TV Guide, and other entertainment giants, Veoh surely had a growing audience, and a great online presence. However, certain problems happened, especially when Veoh made its service unavailable to a lot of places in the world--and Veoh was then acquired by Qlipso, an Israeli startup. By then, Veoh’s website was revamped—and an app of the same name also became available.
Problems aside, Veoh now works in two ways: first, you can stream videos from the web or on the app. These include videos from various categories such as movies, music, and videos categorized in fashion and beauty, entertainment, animals, action, horror, travel, and more, you’d not only enjoy snippets of them, but also full episodes of movies or TV shows, too, with TV shows exclusive for US viewers only.
The second way to use Veoh is by VeohTV Beta, a software application that allows you to make use of remote control viewing—while still using the web! You have to install the Veoh Web Player on your browser, so you can play full length TV episodes. Aside from that, you can download the videos, and watch alternative versions of certain episodes and shows that have not been televised and are not available anywhere online—giving you that feeling of exclusivity that you may have wanted for a long time! If you’re going to upload videos, you can do so on your computer, but not on the app, and you can personalize what you want to upload, as well.
While the site does not look as polished as other websites of its kind, Veoh still does what it’s supposed to do—help you upload and stream videos, that is—and that’s what matters.
