Videohybrid is a video site with social features like video requests, voting and commenting. The site also has a ranking system for “hunters” who go and find video requests. Videohybrid hosts a lot of illegal content including full-length movies and TV shows, so it will be interesting to see how they handle the inevitable legal issues. Users can find a large array of video content including full-length movies, like The Bourne Ultimatum, because Videohybrid pulls videos from other video sites and allows users to upload illegal video content.
Two high school students from San Jose, CA, started the site. Videohybrid is currently in beta. Hari Rajagopalan (CEO & Founder) and James Xu (Director of Marketing) sold the technology to a group from LA before heading off to college.
VideoHybrid users may also be interested in this way to download YouTube videos as well as the large group of companies being targeted by the MPAA and major production houses for hosting copyrighted material.
