flickr now does video

flickr has been hinting at including video for a while now and now it’s there. I haven’t uploaded anything yet, but it  looks as easy as uploading photos. Check out  flickr’s blog post on the new service and their FAQ page as well.

Videos can be a max of 90 seconds  and no more than 150 MB.  Video upload is available to Pro members, though anyone can view video content. I like flickr’s description of video as being a “long photo”.  I like that they’re trying something new that members have asked for and that they’re not quite sure how it will work or where it will go. Trusting their community, way to go flickr!

I’m so glad I’ve taken some short videos this week, I’m going to see if I can upload something.
