Hellish Thanksgiving Videos, Major College, and Popular How-To Site, Launch Online Video Channels

Magnify.net Now Supports Over 20,000 Publishers That Create Online Channels Dedicated to Specific Video Content Curated From Videos Across the Web, All-in-One Branded Location

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Twice each month Magnify.net selects its four hottest publishers to spotlight on its home page -- providing new visitors and potential publishers with a glimpse at the diverse community of users that are adopting the unique platform to aggregate their videos from all over the web using the Magnify.net video platform.

Hellish Holidays - If you've ever had a bad family holiday dinner, don't worry, you're not alone. Laura Cohen found herself privately thinking that Thanksgiving was Hellish -- and wondered if others felt the same way. Surprise! She was right.

"You always hear about wonderful holiday memories, but I think most people are just better at blocking out reality than I am," said Cohen.

"Many of my memories involve cranky relatives, burned food, disappointing gifts and traffic jams that go on for days. The preparations are extensive and the pressure to enjoy yourself is intense. What a recipe for disaster!"

Now "Hellish Holidays" is a fast growing website built on the Magnify.net platform. Check out the "Deep Fried Turkey" for a look at just how ugly the holiday can get.

YourHub - Local Newspapers are getting into video in a big way and the Rocky Mountain News in Denver is breaking new ground with its YourHub community initiative. Now YourHub has added community video and turned to Magnify.net to power the video-sharing site.

Skidmore College - Let's face it, college seems like it was a long time ago, even if you just graduated last year. Now the folks at the Skidmore College Alumni office have decided to invite their community to use video on the Web to stay connected to the college. It's a great use of the emerging video Web platform for community involvement called, ScopeVideo.

HomeTips by Don Vandervort - If you've ever had to fix a pipe, rewire an outlet, or tile a floor, chances are you've found yourselves waste deep in broken tiles and leaky pipes. Well, no longer! Thanks to Don Vandervort, there is now a comprehensive collection of videos to help you with all of your home repair needs.
