YouTube has had its share of competition over the years. Companies like Vimeo and DailyMotion (plus copyright lawsuits and crushing overhead costs) led Chad Hurley and the video-sharing site's co-founders to sell YouTube to Google. More recently Hulu and others have entered the fold. Soon Hurley, who left Google/YouTube in 2010, will launch a potential new rival.
"I wish [South by Southwest] was a month later because I could unveil the new product," Hurley said during a Q&A with Digg founder and Google Ventures partner Kevin Rose on Saturday afternoon. Without going into too much detail, he said the product is "primarily video-based...and gives flexibility for people to work together and create content."
