Grouper also announced an affiliate program enabling third party Web sites to add video directly to their sites using embedded Grouper functionality. And, on the Grouper.com site, users are now able to publish their own media content to their profiles on MySpace and Friendster with one click. Grouper is the only free service that gives users the platform and the tools to easily import, edit, share and watch user-created videos.
"The launch of Web uploads makes Grouper's product the most complete, robust, and user-friendly video sharing service available on the Web today," said Josh Felser, CEO Grouper Networks.

How it works
The new Web upload feature at Grouper is as easy as attaching a document to an email. Once a video has been saved onto the user's computer, go to www.grouper.com and click on the "Upload" tab. Grouper will then ask the user to browse his or her computer to locate the video. Once found, the user selects the desired video and chooses whether to share the video publicly with anyone who visits Grouper.com or privately, by entering recipients' email addresses. From here, the user simply clicks on the "Upload Now" button. Within minutes, the video will be uploaded and ready to share. Users can also add any video shared on Grouper.com to their MySpace or Friendster profiles with just one click.
