    I don't see how this is the end of the world. Stage6 isn't the end of the embedded divx player, after all. Someone else will pick up where stage 6 left off, I'm sure.

    it sure was one of the best sites of its kind.

    video quality was WAY better than youtube, no conversion needed for portables and dvd player.

    Like mentioned, to support websites like this, you need massive amount of money. It'll be hard to find another website like Stage6. Stage6 was so good too.. so much better than Youtube.

    Actually it probably could be. Every single site that took advantage of that player, they were all connected to Stage6. Sites that I've gone to were all just databases with Stage6's videos in an organized (not really but they tried) fashion.
