The first user generated video site to offer revenue share, Revver is a video sharing site. Revver was founded in 2004 before user generated video had even begun to take off. For months into its infancy Revver looked to be a viable alternative if not legitimate challenger to YouTube. Its 50/50 revenue share model landed some high profile content like Ask a Ninja, LonelyGirl15 and the Diet Coke and Mentos guys. Users were immediately enticed by the chance not only to be a web celebrity but to make some cash while they were at it.

According to Compete.com, Revver page views are still growing, however, they hit appr. 1 million monthly while YouTube achieves close to 250 million. Competitors in the user generated video area include Veoh, YouTube, Sony owned Crackle, DailyMotion, Metacafe, iFilm and others. Ian Clarke, original Revver Co-founder, now runs social news site Thoof.
