The new digital goodies blog last100 took a test lap with VeohTV, the full-screen P2P aggregator that goes by the slogan “Video Lives All Over the Web.” The application is still in beta, but last100 blogger has posted a fairly detailed review of VeohTV.
Here’s a look at Veoh’s YouTube channel, where, presumably, most of the action is:
Videos played immediately but, as expected, picture quality wasn’t too good blown up to full-screen. Other channels looked much better (such as HD podcasts) but inevitably took a lot longer to load. This is the downside of VeohTV’s open approach to aggregating many video sources into one unified player. By mixing different video formats, the viewing experience varies greatly.
The blog also checked out the live TV service Zattoo, which is available only in the EU.
Last100 is written by London-based journalist Steve O’Hear. Looks like a great place to keep up with streaming/downloading schemes. It’s part of the fledgling network attached to the popular web technology blog Read/WriteWeb.
