Metacafe Raises $30 Million for Video Site
August 21, 2007

Metacafe raised $30 Million from Highland Capital Partners and DAG Ventures.

What does Metacafe do?

Metacafe allows anyone to upload short videos and helps to make them discoverable.

VCU says:

Metacafe helps viewers to quickly discover short videos online. They have an audience of 16 million unique visitors according to comScore Media Metrix, watching over 400 million videos each month.

They state that they mine the collective wisdom of their audience to filter and surface the most entertaining videos.

Their model, to obtain videos, is to pay those who upload the videos for the number of views they receive. However, the individual must meet their qualifications to enter the program.

See the Metacafe website.
