ABC to let users upload "funniest home videos"

America's Funniest Home Videos
If you've ever caught yourself scrolling through YouTube and thinking "This is just like America's Funniest Home Videos, but funnier because there's no voice-over commentary," you're not alone. Well, it looks like the pioneer making money off of user-generated video has finally embraced new technology.

Starting this summer, ABC will launch a new site for America's Funniest Home Videos, allowing visitors to upload their own movies. Users will be able to search through uploaded videos as well as content seen on the television program. This comes a couple of years too late if you ask me, but it's something. I'll be curious to see if ABC also chooses content for the program from user-uploaded video.

I agree, this would have been great idea about 5 years ago...With YouTube already dominating the space, what difference does AFHV make now?

I predict that we'll see an explosion in the number of groin injury videos the likes of which cannot be imagined, but as David said, it sounds like a great idea.
