The recent submission of video evidence from members of the public after the London bombings highlights the increasing popularity of video blogging, according to a report by ABI Research.
Vamsi Sistla, ABI's director of residential entertainment research, said: " Now anybody who has a voice has a means to express it."
Sistla noted that many video clips of the terrorist attacks were rapidly picked up by Yahoo, Google and MSN, highlighting what he calls a move by large internet operators into the realms previously dominated by cable companies and TV networks.
ABI's recent report shows evidence of increased video blogging by a number of firms. Recent examples include Microsoft's collaborating with France Telecom on digital media products, and Intel's move into film distribution.
ABI believes that increased bandwidth to the home and changes over content licensing will make it increasingly attractive for leading players to create next-generation digital home and media services.
"They are creating the Wal-Marts of the world wide web," said Sistla.
