Bam Video Vault is a site operated within ning.com that hosts video uploads of content made by users. It is a favourite of vidders since it allows for embeds of streaming versions of vids on blog posts as well as many other social networking features.

On April 15, 2010, Ning, the parent network of BAM decided to move to a paid user only format.[1] On April 18, 2010, Bam put up the following notice on their main page:

Ning has decided to do away with the free networks and switch all to premium. Justin and I won't be able to keep the site alive if a payment is involved, so sadly enough, BAM will be closed when Ning makes it's final switch. I hope you all can find some different video homes - and it's a shame to see this site go down in flames when we have made such an impact on the vidding community. I'm so incredibly sorry guys. - Sequoya.

On July 20, 2010, Vidders.net and BAM merged.[2]
