Flickr Unveils Video Sharing, But With Some Serious Restrictions

10 04 2008

Flickr, the popular Yahoo! owned online photo-sharing app is finally embracing video- but not for everyone.  Starting late today (Wednesday) or early tomorrow (Thursday), Flickr will allow “Pro” Users to upload videos as well as photos.

Unfortunately, this video service has several drawbacks.  1) Only for Pro Flickr users ($25 annual cost).  2) 90-second video limit 3) 150mb upload limit.  Flickr is limiting upload size and video size so you will see nothing long and most likely nothing with a high resolution.  Although the addition to Flickr has its limitations, it can only add to the experience, and as Flickr wishes it to merely present a “Slice of life”, it suits their purposes perfectly.
