Sevenload is a streaming media website that focus on video and photo sharing. I found two interesting features in this site: it offers content in five different languages and it allows users to present their own shows on the Sevenload channels.

Although YouTube also has videos in several languages, it is still uncommon to find other streaming media websites with this feature. Sevenload provides videos in English, Polish, German, Turkish and French. It is important to point out that these videos are not translated from a language to another- they are singular videos shown in only one language.

The other interesting characteristic is the “promotion of stars”. According to the website, there is no limit to upload content. Users can produce complete series or numerous episodes for Sevenload channels. There are distinct categories, such as Music, Comedy, Politics, and Sports, which producers can use to tag their work.
