Presidential debate: Your video reaction

US presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama faced each other in their final televised debate from Hofstra University in New York.

BBC News website readers sent their views on the debate as it happened using video upload sites Phreadz and Qik video. Readers also uploaded their videos using the BBC upload page.

This is a summary of some of the videos we received on the Phreadz and Qik BBC Have Your Say websites, and via the BBC upload page.


Video bloggers are not sure if they will find this debate as engaging as earlier ones.

One goes out to his local supermarket to ask others what they think and London vloggers upload their thoughts.

Generally it seems that many have already made up their minds regardless of what happens on the night of the debate.

During the debate, video bloggers upload their comments about what the presidential candidates are saying.

What did they make of the event as a whole?

Some seem to think that this debate was more of a cat-fight than a reasoned debate.
