Video Hosting on Flickr
Yahoo’s popular photo sharing service, Flickr, is now out with videos. Yes, you can now host your videos alongside your photos on Flickr. More details after the jump.
The official Flickr blog just confirmed the rumors:
Video! Video! Video! The rumours are true and â€œsoonâ€ is now. Weâ€™re thrilled to introduce video on Flickr. If youâ€™re a pro member, you can now share videos up to 90 glorious seconds in your photostream.
90 seconds? While this might seem like an arbitrary limit, we thought long and hard about how video would complement the flickrverse.
Here’s what Flickr users are gonna get:
* Videos limited to 90 seconds and 150MB in size.
* Video stills appears alongside images.
* Videos can be tagged and geotaggedâ€“just like images.
* A clean, embedable video player.
* Anyone can view videos, but only Pro users can upload (Pro license is $25 a year).
And as a bonus, Flickr is doubling the size of photos that can be uploaded â€” 20MB per photo for pro members and 10MB per photo for members with free accounts.
