Check out Chill.com, the Turntable.fm of watching videos online with other people. The set-up is basically the same as Turntable.fm, but instead of somebody playing a song, they play a video.

Note: After a disagreement with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg about the service auto-posting a pro-Chill message to people’s accounts, they have limited the number of new signups currently allowed.
