Yahoo is in advanced talks with video producers to launch its own online video channel this year, a product meant to rival Google’s YouTube, according to Ad Age, which cited unnamed sources briefed on the company’s plans.
Yahoo will offer the option of a fixed ad rate that will be 50-100 percent higher than YouTube’s average net ad rate, according to Ad Age.
While YouTube is by far the biggest video sharing site on the web —1 billion active monthly users and counting — it is by no means the only business operating in this space and Yahoo believes that it can attract producers and creators by offering a better split of advertising revenue.
As well as a standalone portal, Yahoo wants to make it easy to embed videos on other sites across the web and to host clips on all of the company’s other web properties, be it the Yahoo.com homepage or Tumblr.

Why did you select Kickstarter as your platform of choice as opposed to the rest?
Kickstarter is the best.
Does the platform help you in any way with your campaign? (Help promote your campaign to its members etc)
Yes and no. It doesn’t particularly help me but I like the fact that it shows projects randomly. (of course you can organize with popularity or any other option. But still its setting is magic (random) and I like it cause it gives a fair chance to even not well known project.
How do you pay the platform for running your campaign on their platform?
5 % of total funding if I reach the goal.
How have you promoted your campaign?
SNS marketing and my contacts mainly.
What have been most challenging about running your campaign?
Not enough exposure.
What has been most rewarding about your campaign?
Communicating with backers and listening to their opinion.
