Revver on the skidds?

CNET and NewTeeVee say the pioneering vid-sharing site Revver has been trying to sell itself -- with no takers so far. Liz Gannes at NewTeeVee writes:

    Public traffic measurers show Revver with flat growth, though the company sees quite a lot of views in its embedded players, which aren’t typically measured. The company hasn’t figured into anyone’s top 10 video sites by traffic in quite a while. We’d reported on video stars who have moved off the Revver platform as their primary host, such as Ze Frank, who left for; Ask a Ninja, which chose Castfire; and Lonelygirl15, which went back to promoting its YouTube clips.

Revver's big differentiator in the early days was that it was the first site to share advertising revenue with creators...remember the Mentos and Diet Coke duo?
