Social Business Club Adds Video Features

The Social Business Club, based in Germany, has released new features to provide its members the possibility to publish video contents on their business-oriented social network website.

Perhaps this is the beginning of an emerging trend where other online business networks, such as LinkedIn or OpenBC, will enable their members to incorporate video content within professional profiles.
The main target for this new module was not to start another new hosting service for videos, but to develop a user-friendly interface to publish already available videos within the club.

"The Internet is overcrowded with video materials and free available hosting services so we didn't reinvent the wheel. What we missed was the possibility for business people and companies to promote their own videos to a serious business audience in an easy and effective way. So, what would fit that need better than an international business club?" said Alexander Dort, founder and COO of the Social Business Club. "We know that most of our members are already using video contents to promote their businesses, their products and themselves. This is what we want to support with this new function of the club -- to provide a serious forum for this kind of new media."

At the moment the video module of the club supports video formats such as mov, wmv, rm, flv, 3gp, mp4 as well as YouTube and Google videos. To publish video contents the members have only to know the URL of the video file and parameters like format, size and run length. For YouTube and Google videos the publisher only needs to know the respective videoID.
