We’ve been busy lately here at WordPress.com — we’ve had an announcement of a new or updated feature for you every day this week. Today, you’re getting a two-fer!
Earlier this week, we announced VideoPress, the great new video feature for WordPress.com. Now VideoPress has its own home on the web at VideoPress.com. We’ve also got a great video introduction created by our company auteur Michael Pick, so be sure to head over and check it out. We’ll be continuing to add features to VideoPress, including support for WordPress.org users, so stay tuned to VideoPress for all the latest.
P.S. If you’re a design geek like me, you might be interested to know that the VideoPress logo (as well as all of VideoPress.com) is set in the beautiful Museo family of typefaces, designed by your fellow WordPress.com bloggers at the exljbris Font Foundry (exljbris.wordpress.com).

I guess should be cool to create a community video (like YouTube) from videopress…. just a idea for the future. Like.. you can watch all uploads from videopress too.
May 16th at 3:11 am
so good. nice. i like it. viva wordpress!
May 16th at 4:01 am
Does this mean we can download our videos directly (after getting the upgrade) instead of having to do a link to You Tube? That would be great! You guys are really busy! Thank you all very much!
May 16th at 4:51 am
It’s raining new features on WP!
May 16th at 5:50 am
Lots of great work.
Here’s to hoping for http://www.gloria.tv shortcode that can be used in videopress at wordpress.com / org
May 16th at 6:30 am
that’s great news
thanks for that
May 16th at 6:35 am
Wow. This will be pretty interesting. Oh and i must tell it… The Backround of Videopress.com is Excellent! WordPress is going better everyday!
May 16th at 8:08 am
great! then, musicpress can’t be too far away?
May 16th at 12:06 pm
AWESOME!!!!! VideoPress, here I come!
May 16th at 12:06 pm
You are going from strength to strength
May 16th at 1:01 pm
fantastic! really excited about this. thanks guys!
May 16th at 1:10 pm
another great thing… you guys are really the best… and I’ve been notcing other stuff that have been changed around here… like site privew, and the wordpress.com and wordpress.org’s icon….
good job keep being the best
May 16th at 1:42 pm
Great news, Matt! So I can upload my videos to videoPress instead of youtube and post it on blog?
May 16th at 1:45 pm
Wow! Can’t wait to try it out!
May 16th at 3:27 pm
Excellent, I’ll definitely check into that
May 16th at 3:56 pm
WOW!! WP continues to deliever. This is going to be fabulous.
May 16th at 4:25 pm
Wow! Cool thank you!
May 16th at 4:30 pm
WOW, one more thing! WordPress is going great!
May 16th at 4:36 pm
I just went to take a look at it! The upgrade is a must for any blogger who makes podcasts and videos. I just wish it did not cost $60…. does this mean you guys are not going to support other video services on wordpress like vimeo? I have a few videos in HD on vimeo that I would love to have on my blog!
May 16th at 8:27 pm
My only concern is that it is going to cost me more to do something I was already doing with my space upgrade. The extra cost makes it just as cheap for me to go out and get my own hosting and design from scrap for my blogs.
May 16th at 8:57 pm
That’s what I call the future of blogging.
May 16th at 11:24 pm
Wordpress is getting great! Will we be able to post are videos on VideoPress?
May 16th at 11:51 pm
Wow! WordPress has gone video crazy – I &hearts it
May 17th at 3:55 am
Good to know that you continue to support others. Though it is tempting to switch over now, will do that when I am ready.
May 17th at 5:23 am
May 17th at 5:28 am
yeah, the font is using Museo.
that is my fav one
May 17th at 1:32 pm
May 17th at 3:08 pm
Fantastic! Thanks for working hard and bringing lots of new features to WordPress. This is my first week with a blog here and already there are so many extra exciting things I can do! Thanks
May 17th at 3:14 pm
This is really great, but I’m concerned about something… I had just purchased ($20) a space upgrade in April so I could load videos on my blog. One month later I need to spend another $60 to continue? I’m sure you’ve got some kind of solution worked out right?
Thanks and keep up the improvements.
May 17th at 3:31 pm
this is really good stuff, I have just watched your video – we are pressed for bandwidth where I live so I will consider before I use it – but as usual you have made this really easy to use
May 17th at 4:45 pm
Always interesting. And I’m specifically interested in the ability to link within a Post to video sources like CNN, Guardian, BBC, Discovery, etc..
If and when that’s possible. Both of the blogs I edit use WP and it would add a big chunk of editorial content.
May 17th at 5:04 pm
I’m excited about this application since I’m planning to engage some colleagues to use WP with videos. Thanks.
May 17th at 8:09 pm
Pretty cool feature, guys. Thanks.
May 18th at 5:38 am
I´m happy to hear this!!! I will upload lots of videos!!!
Greeting from Mexico!!!
Worpress de best site ever!!!
May 18th at 9:59 am
May 18th at 10:25 am
Great stuff. Unfortunately not many people will be willing to pay. Why not have a free option allowing videos less than 1GB?
May 18th at 10:46 am
May 18th at 3:03 pm
May 19th at 1:32 am
Looking forward to trying this on some video rich projects. Most of the cost is bandwidth which outside the US is extremely expensive so most sites trade down on quality but this new service opens up new possibilities.
On the stats side / perhaps we could compare with the approach used by tubemogul. If we can match that it’s a winner.
May 19th at 1:32 am
I didn’t seen yet, but i will try in one click .
May 19th at 1:56 am
This is great. All I’ll need is to buy a HD camera. Don’t worry, I will not neglecting written commentary.
May 19th at 3:22 am
The logo design is not attractive for me
May 19th at 3:25 am
I am exited with this videopress because as of now i can not upload my video in my wordpress blog
May 19th at 5:12 am
Galing! Great Job!
May 19th at 5:44 am
when you will have Facebook Connect for WordPress?
May 19th at 1:47 pm
So many new features lately – Thank you guys
May 19th at 6:26 pm
I’m not sure about this or not, but is it possible to embed videopress videos into your own wordpress blog? Not a wordpress.com blog, but a personal blog using wordpress software from wordpress.org…
May 19th at 8:44 pm
Forgive me for asking a potentially redundant question – I did do some looking around and couldn’t find an answer. Does this new feature also support audio podcasting? Can I upload .mp3 files here? I would love this feature and would be gladly pay for it. Thanks.
May 19th at 10:56 pm
May 20th at 5:48 am
The future?.. I just got started.
May 20th at 1:49 pm

May 21st at 11:11 am
Could be cool. Will you be using sorengson-spark codec like Youtube, or better?
May 21st at 4:21 pm
Way, Cool. Thanks for the constant improvements!
May 21st at 8:04 pm
May 21st at 10:38 pm

May 22nd at 8:44 pm
sweet and perfect
May 23rd at 5:42 am
Totally, totally excited by this. Have wanted to do some video theater coverage here in Chicago, but really didn’t want to deal with YouTube. So this wil be great
May 23rd at 7:35 am
Well it sounds good,,,,,can’t wait to try it out……………
May 23rd at 10:39 am
I knew I could count on your sure-footed creativity. Let’s beat all of them, by making WordPress a class by itself!
May 23rd at 2:52 pm
Wow…! This looks awesome! Thanks for all you do!
May 23rd at 4:40 pm
Kewl!! Thanks a Lot.

May 25th at 12:25 pm
Hey yeah this is very cool… having a lot of fn with Video lately so will get onto this. Lots of updates this month. nice work.
May 25th at 11:55 pm
just for a year ya? My connection here is a little bit slow.. but I’ll try to use this to make my blog interesting..
May 27th at 12:20 pm
Sorry, but why would anyone pay for a service that is offered by numerous other providers for free?
May 27th at 2:17 pm
wow, this can be you tube rival, ok.. good luck
May 27th at 4:58 pm
I think it almost same with social media like fb or something else
May 27th at 8:11 pm
May 27th at 11:31 pm
Excellent is what was missing in wordpress
