Yahoo might be releasing an online video platform

Yahoo’s planning to launch an online video platform in the upcoming months. It intends to fill that online video platform with same faces and professionally made clips but the thing is HOW ? They’ll be doing by poaching some of the biggest stars of Youtube , according to Recode. Yahoo is offering them large guaranteed rates for the videos. Yahoo even promised them extensive marketing  and a chance to promote their videos by putting them on Yahoo’s well trafficked home-page.

Yahoo’s video service would not be open to everyone as Recode is saying that it will be not like Youtube which allows everyone to upload videos, The websites source claims that Yahoo might develop its own content management system or acquire some existing online video platforms like Vimeo , Dailymotion etc to make service available to more people. However , Yahoo won’t be able to beat YouTube as almost 70-75% of people around the world use YouTube daily and many of them use YouTube to learn something as YouTube is full of different kind of tutorials related to programming even.

Still , Its not sure that will Yahoo be able to beat YouTube or not as both companies are well trafficked and famous but still if we look at popularity , YouTube is more famous then Yahoo as we can see that YouTube is on the rank 3 all around the world and Yahoo is on rank 4 all around the world. Well , We’re not confirm that the upcoming video platform by Yahoo would be end-to-end secure and we’re not sure If yahoo would sell our data / documents to NSA as Microsoft did as we saw some invoices between Microsoft and FBI leaked by SEA.
