Japan-based Video Search Engine, Fooooo Raises $1 Million Comments

    I have compiled a list of more than 500 of YouTube-like sites with their niches, and the list is still growing.
    Now, I am doing the same with video search engines. The list counts only 30 of them up to now, but it will grow within the next weeks (and hopefully with the help of the visitors). You can check it at http://www.ilikesharingvideos.com/video-search-engines/en/
    So if you are interested in video search engines, publishing your own videos, or even online video marketing, give an eye to this site, it worths it.
