AfriGadget Videos now on Zoopy!

Joining the AfriGadget community with Zoopy’s video community

Over the past two years AfriGadget videos have been hosted haphazardly by our team on YouTube and Brightcove. We’re very happy to announce that we’re partnering with one of Africa’s premier video and image hosting sites, Zoopy, for all of our videos from now on. We’re all about promoting African entrepreneurs, and this is no exception.

Jason, and the team at Zoopy, has created a customized channel for us, that can be found at They’ve been brilliant, responsive and patient all through the setup process.

Look for a few more videos going up on Zoopy than we used to put up elsewhere, some of them the outtakes that are just sitting in the archive. We’re not video pros, as most of you know by now, but it sure is great to hear these innovators tell their own story in their own words.

Here’s an example from a story on a lady and her daughter who make custom fishing flies:

  1. MAN… I feel like that has so much potential, but they’ve fallen short. To view any other video or to view any photo it takes you to a different page (with your content at the BOTTOM) with a totally different layout and doesn’t even have your branding anymore. Is this a beta or is this the full roll-out?

  2. Taylor, we’re still rolling it out. Since we’re already putting video content and some images up there, I wanted to announce it.

  3. Cool. Good to know. I look forward to seeing it fully rolled out. I’m always in the market for a good video delivery and more importantly, a cohesively delivery with video and photo.

  4. How do they compare to Youtube and Brightcove ? What are the pros and cons of using Youtube,brightcove and Zoppy ?
