Watchitoo Combines Video Chat With Video Watching

Ever wish you could enjoy a video on the internet with friends rather than simply sharing a link with them? New web site Watchitoo wants to let you do just that, combining online video chat with streaming video from YouTube.

Your community video watching can be as exclusive or open as you like, as Watchitoo allows you to set permissions for any video room you create. You can then curate what videos you’d like to include in your room, and anyone who joins you can communicate while watching videos either via an IM-like chat or video chat.

I can’t imagine something like Watchitoo catching on in a very broad sense, but it makes a lot of sense for niche viewing. For example, something like Watchitoo could come in really handy if you’re looking to spend some quality couch potato time with that special-but-currently-long-distance someone. Think you might know of a good time sharing a video at Watchitoo would be worthwhile? Let’s hear it in the comments.
