Overview of Nelsok:
Nelsok is a free video sharing website that allows even unregistered users to upload videos up to 200MB. And if you do register, you get an even better perk: the ability to embed ads in your video and earn a little money! Although Nelsok doesn’t always look totally professional, the possibility of ad revenue makes up for its drawbacks.

Terms of Service for Nelsok:
You retain the rights to your work, though Nelsok can do what they like with it until you remove it from the website. No content that is obscene, harmful, illegal, copyrighted, etc., is allowed.
Sign-up Procedure for Nelsok:
Nelsok asks for an email address, name, username, password and your country. If you want to earn money from your videos, you may indicate that here, but you’ll need an AdSense Publisher ID. (Google AdSense is free and easy to sign up for.)
Uploading to Nelsok:
Nelsok accepts videos in .avi, .flv, .mpg, .mpeg, .mov, .mp4, .mpe, .wmv, and .3gp formats. Whether or not you’re registered, you use the same upload form, which allows you to enter a title, description and tags. There’s no progress information once you click Upload, but the help section of the site does provide useful information about approximately how long your video will take depending on its size.
If you are a registered user, after upload you can add a category for your video, make it public or private, name the people and places in it, and even give it a rating.
Tagging in Nelsok:
Nelsok enables tagging.
Compression in Nelsok:
Nelsok converts all videos to Flash, so make sure your video is the highest possible quality before upload to prevent a loss of quality during conversion.
Viewability on Nelsok:
Nelsok videos are fairly high quality. The colors may be a little altered: orange flames in my video came out bright pink, a problem I hadn’t run into anywhere else. However, the video didn’t look too bad, even with the color change.
Sharing from Nelsok:
To share a Nelsok video, you can link using the URL provided to the right of the viewer, or copy and paste the HTML code provided just below that to embed the player in another website. You can also bookmark the video on a number of sites such as Furl by clicking the appropriate icon under the heading “Social Bookmarking” and signing in.
Nelsok has a “Download video” link with several different formats, but this option is not up and running yet.
