Online retailer Amazon has launched a new Amazon Video Direct service, which will be a direct competitor to Google's YouTube. The service will be ad-supported and will be open to any video creator.

The company provides different ways for creators to earn money. They can offer their videos for rent or purchase, put them on a subscription channel or make them available only to people paying for Amazon's Prime packages.

"Whether it's working directly with storytellers through Amazon Studios or enabling self-service capabilities for storytellers through AVD, we're constantly looking for ways to enable content creators to find an engaged audience and to make it easier for customers to discover great content," an Amazon spokeswoman said in a statement.

Initially, the program will partner with Conde Nast Entertainment, HowStuffWorks, Samuel Goldwyn Films, the Guardian, Mashable, Mattel, StyleHaul, Kin Community, Jash, Business Insider, Machinima, TYT Network, Baby Einstein, CJ Entertainment America, Xive TV, Synergetic Distribution, Kino Nation, Journeyman Pictures and Pro Guitar Lessons.
