Industries Using Metacafe

Social Media Monitoring

The tags and descriptions of videos uploaded oftentimes includes many of the same phrases you're searching for on more traditional social media. The data you collect from video is just as important as the data from Twitter.

Business Intelligence

We make finding out when videos uploaded online affect your internal metrics like sales and volume of support tickets easier by sending you video data based on keywords and tags you select.


Unboxing videos, product demonstrations and more are all very common phenomena in the online video world. You can collect data related to your brand and do the analysis to determine the impact.

Sources Similar to Metacafe

YouTube is the largest video sharing discovering and sharing platform in the world. While Metacafe is all about original entertaining content collecting data from YouTube and other sources allows you can get all the video data you need.

Despite the name Photobucket does more than provide a place to store, share, and discover photos. It does all that for videos as well. The data you collect from Photobucket is similar to that from Metacafe.

DailyMotion is a video sharing service. Users post videos, watch videos, and post and receive comments. You can receive data on the videos through a keyword search just like with Metacafe.

Success Stories

I absolutely love Gnip's API design. Very universal which saves hours of work on my side.

Addictive Mobility

Gnip allows businesses to focus on reaping social data insight, rather than tracking which services are hot, which are not, and which have changed their API policies.
