It seems a useful tool. Free of charge to download, use and upload material but check the copyright notices on the Terms and Conditions to check who owns what and when that changes. I mailed them asking whether there was a Creative Commons option for those more interested in reach rather than revenue and the answer was "for the moment we do not support the CC license model, although situation can change in the future." Would be a good option to add.

Spreecast

Spreecast | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Spreecast is the social video platform that lets people broadcast together.
helpingmedia's insight:

They call it "The ultimate live video experience" with the chance to interact live with individuals and groups, post questions live onscreen, share and embed. Could be good for groups of stringers reporting on a news story from multiple locations. Have just signed up for an account but not tested yet. Please add any experiences below.

CuePrompter - Free online teleprompter. | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Not a social media tool, so a bit out of place in this collection of resources. But for those who are creating video via social media this will come in useful.  Of course it will be a great help to TV presenters.

 

From the site: "CuePrompter is a free teleprompter/autocue service. Your browser works like a teleprompter -no extra software needed.

Check the system requirements and give it a try. Bookmark this site and come again when ever you need teleprompter services.
