Techie-Buzz Verdict

Vidly is way more than just video sharing and they have a lot of options available. Currently, the maximum file size is 1GB and the maximum video length is 20 minutes, which i think would be more than sufficient for most of the users. Above all, it supports all the popular video sharing sites. Vidly works just perfect for tweeples who share videos often.
