Yokto - Collect and Share Videos from Multiple Services

Yokto is a new service that allows you to collect videos from multiple sources and display them in one player on your website. As you might expect you can gather videos from YouTube, but you can also gather videos from sources like Vimeo, Blip, UStream, and Slideshare. The videos that you gather can be played through the Yokto video player embedded into your website.

Yokto operates on a freemium business model. That means that the basic Yokto functions of gather videos and displaying them through the Yokto player is free, but there are additional options you can purchase. Some of the additional options are customizable video players and hosting of your own videos.

Applications for Education
Yokto could be a good way to organize educational videos that you find on the web. Build up a library of videos from multiple sources then allow students to watch them through your classroom website.
