HeySpread is a new service from the folks at Particles(creators of HeyWatch and HeyCast) that lets users upload a single video to multiple video-hosting providers. Just pick the video you want to upload from your hard drive, and HeySpread will pull up a listing of various video hosts. All you need is log-in information for each of them, and the file will automatically get sent out to each, assuming you've got the correct credentials.

HeySpread works with YouTube, Google, and MySpace Video, along with DailyMotion, Blip.TV, and four others. In my testing with five of the nine available video services, only one upload appeared to have failed (Yahoo Video), and the rest went up without a hitch.

This is a very helpful service for people who would like to upload things in one place, or those with slow Internet connections. Since you're basically just uploading it to HeySpread to take care of, you can avoid having to double, triple, or quadruple up on upload time to multiple services. The one missing piece is an editor for some of the more advanced options--like privacy settings, video descriptions, and additional links--on these video-hosting services. Of course, in most cases you can go in later on and add them by hand.

Just enter in your video hosting log-ins in nine of the supported sites, and your video will automatically be uploaded to each. CNET Networks
