VidMe is a new web service that puts privacy and control in the center of the sharing experience.
It means that you can share video privately with only a chosen group of friends; and those videos cannot be forwarded or downloaded.
Certainly, other video sites also make it possible to share videos privately.
- On Facebook, users can chose with of their friends sees a video, though the privacy settings are complicated.
- On YouTube, people can lock videos and share them with up to 25 people, who must log in to their YouTube accounts to view them. People can also categorize the videos as unlisted, so they do not show up on any public YouTube pages. But viewers of an unlisted video can still forward the Web address to others.
People who register for VidMe get some free credits, which are good for uploading several videos. After that, they can buy blocks of credits.
