Motionbox - Potential YouTube Killer?

Recently out-of-beta video sharing web application, Motionbox, is already shaping up to be a formidable competitor to current market leader, YouTube.

Motionbox comes with all the usual trimmings; tagging, searching, private and public sharing, etc, and also gives users the ability to upload videos from their cell phones. This move is a smart one given the increase in mobile phone video cameras all over the World over recent years.

What Motionbox lacks, however, is any kind of video commenting features. This is a simple feature that YouTube has build an entire community around and without it, Motionbox is cutting its users off from a feature they'll miss.
