Dailymotion is a social video site based out of Paris that offers a mix of both amateur and professional content. They are differentiating their site by offering a mix of professional content, contextual advertising, and paying top content producers (companies or individuals) through their MotionMaker program. 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.

In January 2011, Orange acquired 49% of the company for approximately €59 million in a two-part transaction.
