Dailymotion offers a healthy mix of individual videos, channels and groups that can be viewed by popularity, most recent, most views and most rated.
In July 2007, Dailymotion announced that they would be opening US-based operations in hopes of getting a bigger share of the lucrative US market. They are fighting for the number two video site spot behind YouTube. Dailymotion will monetize their video content with banner advertising and in-video advertising.
