Yahoo Launches Video On Flickr
Flickr members can now upload video to the popular photo-sharing site.
Yahoo launched video-sharing this week. Flickr boasts 42 million visitors a month. The company said it hopes the feature will help attain Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO)'s goal of being Internet users' main starting point on the Web.
Flickr will make video available in eight languages: English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Chinese.
Users can upload up to 90 seconds of footage, with a maximum size of 150 MB, from any recording device. They can organize and share videos the same way they handle photos, using tags, geotags, sets, and privacy settings. Videos can be uploaded to photo streams, alongside photos, and embedded on third-party Web sites.
