Veoh, one of several well-funded start-ups that have tried and failed to cash in on the Web video boom, is finally calling it quits. The company let go of the remainder of its workforce yesterday, and sources say it plans on filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the near future. Veoh, which started as YouTube-style site, has struggled for years to find a business model that works and has burned through $70 million in funding from name-brand investors like Goldman Sachs (GS), Time Warner (TWX), Intel’s (INTC) venture arm, Spark Capital and former Disney (DIS) CEO Michael Eisner.

Found this information off another anime site. I know this probably doesn't mean squat to Crunchyroll, but what about all the animes that crunchyroll doesn't have? A lot of sites use Veoh videos......and I was just wondering if this would affect a lot of anime sites and affect us viewers? I dont really have alot of information on this but....jus wondering what everyone elses reaction to this is?

If a Dup, report it

I used to use Veoh a while ago, then it changed at one point and I was like bleh, no more

It's a shame I guess but I'm really indifferent to it now

I never really used Veoh anyway...

So between the brackets is the extent of my caring.. ( )

I feel so cold hearted, people are going out of business here. I wish the blokes well on other projects anyway. ^^

That is not true.. I use both Veoh and Youtube. For searching for good videos to watch I find Veoh much better than youtube. To talk with fellow atheist I go with youtube being its more well known.

And that is just about everything now a days.. Youtube is deleting so much.. Your better off do video searches on Veoh. More chance of finding what your looking for, without the 10 min limit.

Really... I used to have anime and asian drama marathons thanks to veoh when they were still pretty decent, and when youtube wouldn't have certain episodes. Such a shame.

I wish I had $70 million, sheesh!
