We’re pleased to announce that Lockerz, the leader in rewarded social expression, has acquired Vodpod from Remixation, Inc (the company behind Vodpod and Showyou). Details are available in the press release issued by Lockerz today.

The Vodpod site will remain unchanged for the time being, and eventually the service will be integrated with Lockerz.  Regardless, you will continue to enjoy the same experience you’ve come to know and love from Vodpod, and in time, will benefit from more innovation as Lockerz develops the product further.  Lockerz is committed to making any transition smooth and seamless for customers.

Going forward, the Remixation team will continue to focus and work on Showyou, its video sharing application for iPhone and iPad.

The Remixation team would like to thank all of our users for their support and use of Vodpod over the past five years.  We’re excited to see Vodpod continue on as the leading video curation service on the Web, and excited to see the site grow and thrive as part of Lockerz.
