Stage6 Explodes Onto the Video Scene (HD Video: House of Flying Daggers)

Posted by on February 15, 2008 at 12:45 pm.

HD video sharing site has had an impressive first few months. Alexa and Compete graphs tell the same story — explosive growth.


HD makes everything look better, but I wonder how user-generated videos will fare as viewer expectations rise. At least I get to share one of my favorite cinematographic efforts, without YouTube destroying the image quality:

House of Flying Daggers (Shi mian mai fu)

One drawback for users is that the DivX player is required (Stage6 is currently a DivX property). Given the difference in quality, I don’t think that will hinder viewer adoption. In fact, as an early investor in DivX, I love the adoption this will drive.

Jordan, if you’re taking on investors in the Stage6 entity, give me a buzz…

UPDATE, 02-26-08: From exploding to imploding…I guess my message to Jordan didn’t reach him in time…Stage6 will be sorely missed and opens a window of opportunity for others…
