[Ed: There have been a lot of press talking about China’s new regulation that only state-owned or state-controlled companies can render online video. This regulation is published by Ministry of Information Industry (MII) and China’s State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), and it has taken effect since January 31, 2008. The very latest rumour is that Tudou, the No.1 Chinese video-sharing site will be punished,and the punishment might be a Shutdown. It is quite shocking, isn’t? I would not believe it.

The success of YouTube tells us the huge potential of User Generated Content (UGC), then we have hundreds of YouTube clones entertaining us, then we all understand the beauty of web 2.0. Understanding the web 2.0 seems so easy? ECpod.com is a site showing online videos too. It is not a commercial one, but it tells us something new: Video is not only for fun, online video-sharing market can go education too. ]

ECpod.com is a web site that allows members to teach each other English and Chinese using videos. They contribute videos on this site and members can watch it for free. ECpod also has social networking features, so the users can make friends with each other and build communities for learning languages.
