Fliqz Offers Online Video to Family-Friendly Web Sites

User-Friendly Online Video Is Integrated Into Five Web Sites Geared Toward Family and Pets

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - August 22, 2007) - Families are continually growing, whether that means the birth of a new child, the adoption of a new pet or even the addition of a family care provider. Increasingly, families will use the Internet in their search for information making it increasingly important for relevant sites to differentiate themselves from the rest. Thecutekid.com, the Great American Photo Contest, Care.com, WeNeedaVacation.com and K9stud.com are five sites that selected Fliqz to add the competitive advantage of online video to their sites. By adding Fliqz video solutions, these sites are maximizing their users' ability to find the perfect match in pets and care takers, or to show the world their gorgeous children.

"Soon we will be unveiling our new My Cute Kid Site, that will extend Thecutekid.com beyond a contest and provide a community for parents to upload videos, photos and journal entries to share with family and friends," said Greg Byrnes, executive vice president of Thecutekid.com. "We appreciate the fact that Fliqz offers complete customization that allowed us to continue to promote our brand in a cost-effective way and keep our services free to our users."

The Fliqz video service adds a more personal component to family and pet related sites. The flexibility and unique customization offered by Fliqz provides many different Web sites and blogs with the ability to bring their sites to life in the most user-friendly way possible.

"We offer families the chance to spend relaxing time together -- kids and all," said Jeff Talmadge, founder-owner of WeNeedaVacation.com. "By implementing the customized Fliqz player, parents now have the ability to visit vacation locations from their desktop and find exactly what they are looking for -- beautiful getaways and family-friendly environments. The addition of video on the site really is the best way to accurately portray the array of destinations and homes available to our site visitors."

Fliqz takes the guess work out of online video and makes it available to the average user while preserving professional quality in video uploading. Currently the network of Fliqz customers includes more than 350 sites in the travel, family, classifieds and blogging/emerging media spaces.
