Microsoft"s Soapbox features better than Google's YouTube ?

As Google's first chores will be to accelerate YouTube's efforts to rein the rampant copyright violations found on user-uploaded video, Microsoft's Soapbox is adding in new features.

The feature set now includes:

1. Upload videos in almost any format—like from your video or digital camera (maximum file size is currently 100MB)
2. Tag and categorize your videos to make it easy for other people to find them
3. Watch original videos and browse for new ones at the same time
4. Set up your own personal RSS feeds for videos you’re interested in
5. Use your Windows Live Spaces profile with Soapbox on MSN Video
6. Embed a video on your Web site or blog

This information as well as the screen shot below is taken directly from LiveSide, there are no other sources at this point.

Also I feel its extremely odd that Microsoft is launching this under the MSN brand instead of All of their recent web services have been released under The best way to ensure that this service gets immediate traction would be to link it directly to, as Myspace has done with its own video product.

Anyways those are my views.. post in your views...
