New York — LongTail Video launched their self-serve video platform, LongTail.TV, on Tuesday.

The video platform’s goal is to provide affordable hosting options for smaller publishers who seek to publish, stream and monetize their video content — competing with Brightcove and Ooyala who allow publishers to host and serve videos for larger publishers on their platforms.

LongTail.TV will enable their users to customize and embed a JW player on their site while being able to add content from either LongTail’s Media Gallery or from their personal video library. Earning money is also a feature that will be delivered through ads from LongTail’s content providers.
