Support VideoSift!

Why Support VideoSift?

VideoSift is not backed by any other company or organization. We are a grassroots community that has evolved with the support and collaboration between members and administrators. It's different around here than any other web community. We would like to continue to be an alternative voice for quality video content separate from mainstream networks and video mega-sites.

"Honestly, becoming a Videosift Charter Member was an easy decision for me ... It is worth it for just the double in queue size and more. It is also nice to feel a special kinship with your fellow Charter Members in that they believe in this site as much as you do and they have decided to contribute their own small part likewise into supporting what they believe in. Support this great online community. Go Charter!"

(Charter since May 2007)

At first it was pretty easy; it felt like a big group of friends working together to make something great. You brought your friends with you, and now VideoSift welcomes over a million people a month. We need your help financially to keep this great thing together. We outgrow our servers every couple of months, and our bandwidth and associated costs are climbing. Please help us keep your community thriving.

A la Carte Power Points

Power Points help members promote content and exercise "super powers" on VideoSift. Purchasing them a la carte will give you a stockpile without having to wait days for a recharge. Read about all the available Power Point abilities on the FAQ.

5 Power Points


10 Power Points


Note that when you purchase Power Points your current points will be recharged before the new points are added. In other words, if you have a maximum of 2 points but currently have 0 and your recharge time is 16 hours away when you purchase 10 power points, your points will first be refilled to 2 and then you will be granted your extra 10. So you'll have a total of a whopping 12! (Your next normal recharge would remain scheduled for 16 hours later.)
