Youtube just got into the APP business as well as into the video editting busines (about time) the company launched an app that lets its user create, make, mix, edit and upload videos from your own or those already created previously on youtube.
The folks behind YouTube are taking on Vine and Instagram with their own video stitching and sharing app.
Known as MixBit, the free app debuted Thursday for iOS users via Apple’s App store, while an Android version is due in the next several weeks, according to The New York Times. MixBit amps up the social aspect of shooting short video clips by letting you stitch together videos from other users to create lengthier productions.
As highlighted in the app’s description, you can record, edit, and publish videos as short as one second or as long as an hour, all from your mobile device. Each individual clip you shoot can be as long as 16 seconds — Instagram allows up to 15 seconds, while Vine restricts you to 6 seconds. And each video can contain as many as 256 clips.
You can edit your video by moving or deleting each clip from your device. Once your masterpiece is finished, you can then save it or publish it to the MixBit Web site, which is slated to ramp up sometime Thursday.
The social aspect comes into play by letting you freely borrow clips from other MixBit users to add to your own video. As such, you don’t even need to shoot any footage on your end. You can simply remix the clips contributed by the MixBit community to create something new.
Served up by digital media company Avos Systems, MixBit is the brainchild of Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, co-founders of YouTube.
“The whole purpose of MixBit is to reuse the content within the system,” Hurley told the Times. “I really want to focus on great stories that people can tell.”
