Today’s featured social web app is VHX, a place where you can discover and share video online. This web app features an easy-to-use interface that makes watching and sharing video on popular social sites and media sites extremely easy.
Online Video Sharing and Discovery Made Easy
So what is this VHX all about? First of all, it is a video watching portal. The web app brings you the popular video clips being shared by people on the internet. You can quite some channels such as movie trailers, BuzzFeed and Staff Picks chosen by VHX staff and watch instantly in the browser window.
But there is more about this web app. By linking your accounts on social platforms to VHX, i.e. Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, you can enjoy the video shared by your friends. So you don’t have to go here and there, just one web app to enjoy video on all platforms. It also has a Reddit channel that does not require your Reddit credentials.
A third source of finding video on VHX is by sharing. Users can add a bookmarklet in their browser to share any video found on a web site to VHX.
This web app is not only designed for instant watching. You can put video in your queue for watching later. And if you discovered any great stuff, simply click share to post it to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr to invite your friends to view it.
I like the idea of VHX because it does not simply scrape popular video on the internet, just like the TwitTV I introduced before. The core idea of VHX is crowdsourcing and sharing. The web app itself does not need to monitor the video sharing trend on popular sites, it simply rely on its users and their friends. I particularly like the simple user interface of it. Tablet users should find it easy to navigate around.
