Ethioclips was established in the mid 2006, we at Ethioclips had a notion to launch a video sharing site for all Ethiopians all over the world to share their videos with their friends, families and fellow Habeshans. Ethioclips have a small number of Ethiopian individuals working together to build the first Ethiopian video sharing site together with a union site that will create the largest Ethiopian network.
AT you can:
Upload, tag and share Ethiopian videos worldwide
Browse latest videos uploaded by community members
Find, join and create video groups to connect with people who have similar interests
Subscribe to member videos and save or rate favourite video clips.
Add Ethioclips videos on websites, web logs and forums using video embeds or APIs
Make videos public or private—you either broadcast your videos publicly or share them privately with friends and family upon upload.
What makes Ethioclips different?

We at Ethioclips always believe in the motto, “Support Your Own.” We believe that all Ethiopians take pride in their culture and our nationality. The main reason for the creation of our site is for Ethiopians to have their own video sharing site that will enable them to access Ethiopian related video clips the easiest way. Our video clips are categorized to make it easier for you to search for clips of your interest. You don’t have to search for videos through non Ethiopian related video clips, as this can take a lot of time. Our Service is Free for everyone although videos uploaded must be Ethiopian and Ethiopian related.
Please contact us to give your thoughts and feedback about our website.
