The best World Cup video websites

It's hard not to blog about the World Cup right now. Broadband is bringing games, stats and the ability to share our experiences to us on web, mobile and TV. YouTube, Flickr are leading the way in giving us the fan's eye-view from living rooms to stadiums.

Here are a few of my favourite user generated and broadcast video World Cup websites. Let's hope Fifa don't close them down;-)

YouTube World Cup

World Cup Goals in 3D Replay (download required)

Things are busy on Daily Motion - lots of World Cup fans submitting content

All the World Cup news from around the World in video

And if you're stuck in a country with limited World Cup on free to air TV, try the tips to watch World Cup games live on your PC. TV and Web get closer all the time. I wonder if Fifa will be estimating the number of online TV viewers. UK viewers can watch all games live on the BBC.

This World Cup is a trial run for web 2.0. In 2010 there will be more viewers than ever before, watching games, fans and experiences on all kinds of devices. Next time the media wont be entirely controlled by traditional broadcasters.

I prefer some of the photography from fans than video content.

World Cup Blog has a great selection of photos added daily

But Flickr wins hands down with some great World Cup Photography

If you come across some great World Cup user generated content add your link.

The last word has to go to Ronaldinho...
