New Video Share Site Launches With Revenue Model


While the business model comes off sounding a bit like it's leaching off the success of other video sharing sites, new video sharing site, Filxya, splits ad revenue 50/50 with anyone who uploads videos and has a Google AdSense account. The videos are not hosted on Flixya, saving them a ton of money, but appear on the site using the embed code from other video sharing sites like Google Video, YouTube, Daily Motion and other sharing sites. Flixya then surrounds the videos with Google AdSense Ads. Basically, the site is a giant aggregator of content and advertising which uses other site's content and resources to make money for itself and it's users. But, hey, that's not a bad thing. That's just making use of existing content distribution methods.

There's also a rewards program that allows people to accumulate points and trace them in for various products. We don't know about you but we're signing up for this right now before some legal entity pokes wholes in this.

UPDATE: The method of getting video on the site is not entirely convenient. Since Flixya doesn't host videos, you have to first upload the video to your share site of choice then go back to Flixya and enter the embed code the share site gave you, a title, a description and tags. It seems like double the effort. But, for those who want to make a few dollars, that's how it works. It would seem they could just come up with some Firefox plug in to do all that work automatically.

It's too bad the domain name for the site is awful. awful. awful.

I think the name is quite catchy, in fact it sounds like some sort of disease. Which, is funny because viral videos doesn't sound too healthy imho.

warning! They allow the posting of copyright vids. If the posters get caught if appears they remain active and keep the points they have earned.

I was under the impression the profits were donated or at least 50% of their profits.
The person that submits the video can get a monthly check from adsense for the profits they earn on someone elses video.
You submit someone elses video (without them knowning) and follow the instructions to register.
