Videobomb = Internet TV from the masses


Is Video Bomb a mashup between Digg and Videos, or could it literally be a moving picture of our online social fabric?

You know the drill…
As seen in their FAQ, you can share or find interesting videos in an online community by posting, commenting and tagging videos on the site. When someone submits a video, it appears on the Incoming page and if people like it, they can ‘bomb’ the video, which adds it to their favorites list. If enough people bomb a video, it will appear on the front page of the site. I don’t know about you, but “bomb-ing” a video sounds weird, especially living in our present times.

But wait, there’s more…
The developers of Video Bomb really built it to support DTV, their internet TV software. By subscribing to Video Bomb’s RSS, you can watch Video Bomb videos in DTV. They are working on the ability to bomb videos from within DTV. Now here’s something iTunes can’t do… DTV plays videocasts one after another so you can literally run it like a real TV. Just remember to trash old video for they’ll really suck up all your storage space.

Now you’ve got something else to keep you company at work ­čśŤ
