We are pleased to announce today that VideoCelt is now accepting video clips directly from our members. Rather than linking directly to the video, members can choose to upload a video file up to 75 megabytes in size. For videos large than the 75 meg limit, please contact us directly to coordinate the transfer of your video file.

Our new video player can show videos in regular or HD formats, full screen or window mode and contains a high quality audio driver that increases the dynamic range and sound quality of every video submitted to our site.
The membership section and online profiles have also been expanded. Online avatars can now be uploaded, profiles contain a rich selection of member details and each member can save their favorite videos, comment on all videos and view the membership rooster.
Video submissions can now be submitted from over 32 video sources which means just about every major video site on the internet is now compatible with VideoCelt.com. This means members and musicians can suggest or link up their own video creativity to VideoCelt.com.
Along with a 70% speed improvement, new features and a ton of bug fixes - VideoCelt.com is now the premier video website for all videos related to Celtic and Folk music. We currently have over 4,000 videos available in our archives and the list is growing each and every day. As a companion video site to CelticRadio.net, we also display musician videos on our main radio page at CelticRadio.net when that musician song is heard on Highlander Radio. We also have the ability to now sell 15-30 second video advertising to both members, businesses and musicians. This feature is currently in the beta testing phase, but we expect in 2010 to provide a cost effective video advertising solution to our customers.
