Share your favorite videos from all around the Web with Embedr

01Apr09

Embedr is a service that allows you to create and share playlists full of your favorite videos from different hosting sites on the Web.  Love videos of funny office pranks?  You can create a playlist for that.  How about clips from (one of my favorites) 30 Rock?  You can build a playlist for that.  With Embedr, you can create playlist after playlist and share them with friends too.

To get started, just name your playlist, then add either the video URL or embed code.  Currently, Embedr can grab video from YouTube, Vimeo, Veoh, DailyMotion, and a few others.  Sadly, it doesn’t appear that Viddler is supported – let’s hope that changes.

The last steps are to simply add a description, tags, and click on “create”.  That’s it!  You’ll be presented with a nice little player that contains all of your videos.  You can share it with a URL and grab the embed code.  Your playlist will also be searchable on Embedr so other people can rate it and leave comments.

I would like to see a way to make some of your playlists private – I couldn’t find an option for that and I think it’s very important.

Besides creating your own custom playlists, Embedr also helps you create playlists out of keywords, a YouTube username, or YouTube playlist with an option called “Smart Playlists”.  This saves you all of the hassle of searching around for your faves.
