Who Will Get Bought Next After YouTube?

With that big $1.65 billion price tag, you bet everyone is wondering who is going to get bought next after YouTube? made $495 million on YouTube. Google (Nasdaq GOOG) is out of the game but there are many more buyers. I took a look at Yahoo's directory of video sharing services, DMOZ, etc. - hey, Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq YHOO) is good for something too you know. They have a great directory. Here they are. My 25 sites that can be bought next in no particular order.

1) PutFile
2) Ourmedia
3) ZippyVideos
4) Vimeo
5) Metacafe
6) Veoh
7) DailyMotion
8) Castpost
9) Revver
10) VideoEgg
11) Jumpcut
12) Dropshots
13) GoFish
14) VidiLife
15) Eyespot
16) StreetFire
17) Clipshack
18) VideoSift
19) Videobomb
20) vMix
21) MotionBox
22) vSocial
23) VapShare
24) Pickle
25) 247Show

How do you Value YouTube and Other Video Sharing Companies?
How much is each of them worth? If YouTube is doing 100 million streams per day and Google paid $1.65 billion, that implies that each stream is worth $16.5.

Google paid $16.5 per stream per day.

My guess is that YouTube has about 20 million people visiting the site per month. So, that would be $82.50 per user visitor.

Google paid $82.50 per unique visistor per month.

That is awfully expensive. Comparing to Skype which was bought for $2.6 billion and 54 million members, that is expensive too.

eBay Inc. (Nasdaq EBAY) paid about $48 per member and eBay had revenues coming from Skype subscriptions.
