Last month, we published our Streaming Media 100 list, in which our magazine and website contributors take the pulse of the online video industry. This month, it’s the readers’ turn, with the Streaming Media Readers’ Choice Awards, still the only awards program in the industry where the end users have their say in what products and services they rely on to do their jobs.

This year’s awards brought in 326 nominations; after weeding out the duplicates and the nominations that weren’t appropriate for their categories, we narrowed the field down to 249 nominees and opened the voting to StreamingMedia.com readers. Nearly 3,600 of you voted, casting a total of nearly 36,000 votes in our 29 categories, which bridge both the Streaming Media and Streaming Media Producer purviews. We announced the finalists in mid-October, and presented the winners at the Streaming Media West show in Huntington Beach, Calif. today.

Did your favorites take the top prizes? Read on. And congratulations to all of our winners.
