Dailymotion is a video sharing service website, based in Paris, France. Its domain name was registered one month after YouTube (but the site opened one month earlier) with gandi.net, a French internet domain name provider, and at least one name server is based in France with the .fr name extension.
As of April 2009[update], the site was getting over 55 million unique visitors monthly and visitors viewed approximately 17 billion pages since the start of the year. As of January 2008[update], the site was getting about 16,000 new videos posted daily, and page views in excess of 26 million per day  As of January 2009[update], Dailymotion had a global Comscore ranking of 42.
Dailymotion allows users to browse videos by searching tags, channels or user-created groups; the search system also introduces results based on things other users have searched for. The maximum size of a video file is 2 gigabytes. The length of the video file is also limited to 20 minutes, except for the MotionMakers and the Official Users.
In February 2008, the HD quality (1280 × 720 pixels and 1.58 to 1.85 Mb/s) was created, for the MotionMakers only.
In October 2008, the HQ quality (512 × 384 pixels, 30 images per second, H.264 is used for images and AAC at 96 kb/s for the sound) was created.
On June 2, 2009, Dailymotion announced on their blog that they were going to introduce HTML 5 and that their existing 300,000 videos were going be converted to Ogg Theora + Vorbis. This ensures that a user does not need a Flash plug-in to view videos on Dailymotion but needs to have an HTML 5-compatible browser such as Firefox 3.5 or Google Chrome 3. Only MotionMaker videos are re-encoded in Ogg.

Blocking of Dailymotion
According to the article Tunisia: Video-sharing website Dailymotion Blocked! written by Reporters sans Frontières (Paris) April 11, 2007, Omar Mestiri, an editor of the opposition online newspaper "Kalima", is a victim of judicial harassment. Reporters Without Borders has said that a libel suit could result in a three-year prison sentence. RWB organization also called on the authorities to stop blocking Dailymotion, which has been inaccessible in Tunisia since April 1, 2007.
Reporters Without Borders said:
|“||The lawsuit against Mestiri is absurd because it is based on an online article that cannot even be accessed from within Tunisia ... But we take this case very seriously. The three and a half year sentence imposed on lawyer Mohammed Abbou in April 2005 for an article posted online showed how the Tunisian courts are controlled by the government and how a libel suit can lead to a heavy sentence.||”|
The press freedom organisation added:
|“||The censorship of Dailymotion's website shows that the government, which is as paranoid about the Internet as it is about the traditional press, is ready to ban tens of thousands of inoffensive videos in order to block a handful it does not like.||”|
The suit against Mestiri was brought by Tunisian lawyer Mohammed Baccar over an article posted on September 5, 2006 accusing him of fraud and forgery. Mestiri was summoned by the deputy state prosecutor to respond to a charge of libel on March 29. Mestiri's lawyers have challenged the suit's legal basis on the grounds that Kalima's site is blocked in Tunisia and the article couldn't have been accessed there.
Dailymotion with the help of Audible Magic, implemented an acoustic fingerprinting system that can detect copyrighted videos and not publish them. Dailymotion is also the first video sharing website to implement a video fingerprinting solution supplied by INA.
