Regardless of the PC era or the mobile Internet era, video is one of the most asset-heavy sub-sectors in the Internet field. In November 2004, China's first video website LeTV was established. Since then, the video industry has experienced fax number database model exploration, money-burning wars, copyright wars, IP battles, unclear profits to today's pan-entertainment industry, and the explosive growth of short videos. In the era of mobile Internet, the video industry has once again ushered in the favor of capital, and the industry pattern has already undergone earth-shaking changes.
From the melee of the princes to the three-legged confrontation When it comes to video sites, I have to mention Sohu, once the overlord of fax number database portal sites and the Whampoa Military Academy of video sites, its current situation is relatively bleak. Zhang Chaoyang, who wanted to build Sohu Video, had a difficult journey. Sohu Video, which once gained huge traffic with the self-made drama "Diaosi Men" series, is now a bit lonely. Zhang Chaoyang, the once famous head of Sohu, has also become the most Buddhist boss due to various performances, and many of his disciples have also left and established their own businesses.
In 2005, Sohu President Gu Yongqiang ran away and later became Youku; in 2006, Sohu Senior Vice President Li Shanyou ran away and fax number database became Ku6; in 2007, Sohu Senior Vice President Wang Jianjun also ran away and went to2008 In 2009, Senior Vice President Gong Yu ran to iQiyi . LeTV, which gave people a lot of expectations, also collapsed due to problems such as the capital chain. In 2010, LeTV was listed on the Growth Enterprise Market, and it was in the limelight. It released LeTV mobile phones and TVs, and invited a group of celebrities to cheer.
