Veoh Networks Inc. on Wednesday announced plans to “integrate” its software with Apple’s new video-capable iPod models. Veoh is an Internet television “peercasting” network.
Veoh launched a public beta of its software
earlier this month. Using client software on the Mac and Windows PCs, Veoh users can view and publish video on a “virtual television network” that works over broadband Internet connections.
While Veoh employs a peer-to-peer (P2P) style architecture, publishers don’t have to host their own servers or RSS feeds. Unlike many P2P services, Veoh doesn’t trade in illegal videos, however — the system was developed for approved content from publishers.
The company eventually plans to have in place a way for publishers to charge for their content, although that technology is absent from the beta release. It’s also integrated with Google Video and RSS service.
