Finally rumour has turned into reality. There was constant buzz that Flickr photo-sharing website will soon jump into videos. And it has withÃ‚Â launch ofÃ‚Â ‘Video on Flickr’ for PRO members.
A PRO Flickr user can upload 90 seconds of a video using this ‘Video on Flickr’ service. Why only 90 secs? Well, here is the official line: “…Flickr is all about sharing photos that you yourself have taken. Video will be no different and so what quickly bubbled up was the idea ofÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“long photos,Ã¢â‚¬Â of capturing slices of life to share.”
Video length restrictions clearly indicate, they do not want to be another Youtube or DailyMotion. They want users to experience photo shots in motion with Video on Flickr. Nice attempt!
Here is more for all Flickr users, they have doubled size of photos that can be uploaded Ã¢â‚¬â€ 20MB per photo for pro members and 10MB per photo for members with free accounts. Flickr in motion, game for Video on Flickr ?
