It’s an increasingly crowded field, with new entrants coming on every few weeks it seems. Some of the other names: WonderHowTo, MonkeySee, 5Min, VideoJug. To promote itself, howcast has signed distribution agreements with various platforms, including MySpace, YouTube, FiOS TV, Joost and Roo. Release.
