Photosharing Mogul Flickr Launches Flickr Video
Is the world’s largest interactive photo platform Flickr attacking online video mogul YouTube? Since today Flickr users can add video clips alongside their photos, a much requested and much anticipated feature that has been promised for over a year.
Flickr is effectively turning the photosharing site into more of a YouTube-type experience – but there is a twist. Adding video is now possible, but Flickr has chosen to aim for a different approach than the current videosharing sites.
To make sure that the company does not get into trouble with copyrighted material or long video’s, there is a limit in place that prevents users to upload videos of more than 90 seconds in length. Additionally, there is a 150 MB maximum file size – and you have to be a paying Pro-user.
