Verizon has announced that its Vcast service will be offering customers videos from YouTube beginning next month. The company claims that only 10% of the 20 million customers who have phones capable of supporting Vcast do so at this time, so Verizon is banking on the premise that we will pay to see cats falling off roofs and children doing stupid human tricks on our lunch hours.
Under the agreement, customers who pay a $15.00 monthly fee for Vcast can not only download videos, but can post them from their phones to YouTube by using a 5 digit code rather than an e-mail address. Undoubtedly, Verizon is considering the possibility that this move will translate into more ca-ching in their cash box.

MuveeMix is a new site that makes it possible to upload your MP3s and videos, then connect the two without doing any of your own editing. The service automatically cuts picture or video highlights to the beat of the music, and even adds other themed artistic elements. You simply register at the site, upload your info, then combine your tacky home movies from your last vacation with a song such as “Mad World.” Display it in their gallery or export to myspace or other sites of your choosing. They will keep up to 10 muvees active for one year.
Upgrade to a Bumper account for $60.00 a year and get 5 extra styles (for a total of 10.) Just don’t be disappointed if no one shows up for the premiere.
