Despite tackling a diverse set of web video projects, from encoding to monetization to content production, the 10 companies chosen for our “NewTeeVee’s Next Big Thing” list all have one thing in common: They are rapidly gaining traction in emerging and increasingly important aspects of the business. And so we’ve put our trust in them to see into the future. At NewTeeVee Live, our third-annual conference on Nov. 12 in San Francisco, each company from the list will offer one prediction about the future of video. Taken together, their forecasts will provide a layered and thorough look at where we’re all headed.

The 10 companies we’ve chosen for this honor affirm our conviction that online video has a promising future as a business. Join us at NewTeeVee Live to hear what they have to say in person — tickets are available now. In the meantime, here (in alphabetical order) are our picks. If you think we’ve left someone particularly deserving out (and we undoubtedly have given that our limit was 10), please tell us in the comments.

  1. Quite surprised that this list doesn’t include any credible Live Streaming player ! Let’s look back next year :)

    1. Actually I know that Ooyala does live streaming – they have been doing a lot lately with the Vans surfing competitions and and some MMA fights

  4. So these are the guys we have to thank for the crappy Postseason.tv

    The Philies game was unwatchable today. I already submitted my refund request. Every playoff game is nothing but constant buffering. Today during the 7th inning the video went out! These guys should watch Sunday Night Football on NBC.com to see how it’s done.

    The few minutes that the SNF player was on one 1 bar it was superior to Postseason’s player on 4 bars. 95% of the time I was able to watch the SNF game in HD.

  5. Boxee has what 1000 or 2000 users? total?? it gets way more hype than it deserves. bittorrent 2.0… with a lot less users. this thing will flash out.

  6. @gonzo90017:

    the technology for both Sunday Night Football on nbc.com and mlb.com is the same. Inlet powers both. infrastructure may vary, but both begin as HD signal.

  7. I just got an invite to Clicker.com and think it’s the most impressive new site I’ve seen since Hulu. The interface is beautiful and it makes it extremely easy to find shows all over the Web.

    1. I also wanted to comment on Clicker, they’re not making content, but they’re making content a whole lot easier to find.
