Profile: BlipBack.com

BlipBack is a new site that lets you offer video comments on your website, blog or social networking profile page.

This service integrates with your webcam to enable video comments.
The widget player is very similar to what you’ll see with most video
widgets from YouTube
and other video-sharing networks, though there are thumbnails for you
to view the upcoming comments from others, along with the number of
views and the rating for each comment. Your sorting options are to view
from oldest to newest or vice versa, or view from highest to lowest
rated or vice versa. You can also sort comments by most viewed, and an
option to subscribe to video comments via RSS feeds.

In order to add your own comment, you’ll need a webcam, though there
is an option to take a video with your camera phone and send it in to
the address provided for each widget. This way groups can have a remote
way to create collaborative video streams on a website, similar to
Cellblock or Pickle.

The other option offered is a BlipBomb, which is a comments widget
you can insert in comments threads across various social networks and
blogging platforms. Having an automatic play option to view all the
comments in the widget as a streaming channel would be a good feature
for this service.
