HooQs – Mobile Video Channels

HooQs (m.hooqs.com) is another new mobile video and music site.  HooQsThis is a crowded field and HooQs is trying to distinguish itself with the concept of channels. A channel is a collection of audio and video content with a common theme like a band, new movie release, “how to do it instructions”, UFOs or a major news story. There are many predefined channels and Hooqs can create a custom channel for you based on your interests. Or you can build a channel from any of the content on HooQs. You create and manage channels on the web and send then to your own phone or a friend’s phone as a link in an SMS.

Hooqs has a very eclectic selection of videos, the usual movie trailers, clips of people doing stupid things, newscasts, sports highlights and music videos but also a large selection of how-to instructional videos and several that seem to be medical school lectures.

The site is free and no registration is required to search for and stream or download videos which are in 3gp format. Registration lets you push videos and music to your phone from HooQs web site and also create and publish channels of your favorite clips from HooQs catalog. Registration does not require your mobile phone number unless you want to be able to send content to your device.

Currently there is no way to upload your own content. I contacted the site and immediately received a reply that uploading is coming soon as well as higher quality .mp4 videos.
