What can you do with your Windows Live ID? : #4 Sharing your videos
[In this series of blog entries I’ll be exploring what else you can do with your Windows Live ID other than access Windows Live products and services. See the complete list here.]
Youtube is the undisputed king of user generated videos but its a less well known fact that your Windows Live ID gets you access to a like-for-like service at MSN Video (http://video.msn.com). Anyone with a Windows Live ID can post their own videos and browse other people’s videos along with offerings from more established publishers.
In my last post in this series What can you do with your Windows Live ID? : #3 Store collections of geographical points I pointed out a Live Maps collection called Natural Wonders Of The World. I have created a 3D tour of that collection (3D tours are a feature of Live Maps) and uploaded it to MSN Video so I can now embed it here for your viewing pleasure!
In my first blog entry in this series I said “Not all of the products and services accessible with a Windows Live ID are best-of-breed” and given the prevalence of Youtube its fair to say that MSN Video falls into this category. Still, its great to know that you can upload and share videos using your Windows Live ID.
