It’s not often you are presented with a vision of the future of online video in a pub in London.
He believes that the future of online video is not YouTube or even live video, he thinks it is video conversations among a community.
Within minutes of posting the video to Seesmic, he had replies from the community all around the world, including from members sat around the corner in the same bar.
“YouTube is not a conversation,” explained LeMeur. “As one Seesmic-er said to me, ‘YouTube is about the videos, Seesmic is about the people in the videos’.”
Users can record videos via webcams and upload directly to Seesmic, or record using YouTube and post from that site.
The company is also working on a mobile phone version of Seesmic.
He says Seesmic is more intimate because video allows users to see each other for who they are.
Users reply to each others’ replies, creating an almost infinite threaded conversation around different topics.
