Flickr Now Has Video

Flickr Adds Video

It might not displace YouTube anytime soon, but Flickr is big on photos. Now, they’re adding video too.

Flickr today announced that its members can now upload personal video clips and share them with friends, family and the world.

Video on Flickr provides an easy and fun solution for consumers to release the personal video clips stored away in their cameras, according to the company, citing a recent survey commissioned by Yahoo! which showed that more than 40 percent of respondents ages 18-44 are capturing personal video clips with their digital cameras, but they are not taking advantage of Web sites to effectively share their videos. 55% of respondents merely play back video clips for their friends on their camera device or PC, and 20 percent don’t share these clips at all.

The new video uploading feature will support up to 90 seconds of personal video footage captured with the video function of any digital video recording device including still cameras, camcorders and camera phones.
