Video blogging, sometimes shortened to vlogging[1][2][3] (pronounced v'LOG-ing or VEE-log-ing) or vidblogging[4][5] is a form of blogging for which the medium is video,[6] and is a form of Internet television. Entries often combine embedded video or a video link with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.

Video logs (vlogs) also often take advantage of web syndication to allow for the distribution of video over the Internet using either the RSS or Atom syndication formats, for automatic aggregation and playback on mobile devices and personal computers (See video podcast).



Video blogging arose as a video form of blogging.

Vlogging saw a strong increase in popularity beginning in 2005. The Yahoo! Videoblogging Group saw its membership increase dramatically in 2005 [7]. The most popular video sharing site to date, YouTube, founded in February 2005, was publicly launched between August and November 2005[citation needed]. The BBC launched their first official video blog in October 2006, with a feature allowing children to name a new Blue Peter puppy.[8] Many open source content management systems enable posting of video content allowing bloggers to host and administer their own video blogging sites. Moreover, convergence of mobile phones with digital cameras allow publishing of video content to the Web almost as it is recorded.[9] One example of this phenomenon, Qik, gives its users the ability to use a wide variety of phones with data plans to stream video via its built-in camera.

Radio Stations and television stations are now using video blogging as a way to help interact more with listeners and viewers.[10]
