Flickr has launched its video on Flickr video sharing service, which lets Flickr Pro members upload videos with a maximum length of 90 seconds to their Flickr photostream.
Why 90 seconds?
“Video on Flickr grew out of the idea of long photos and as such, weve implemented what might seem like an arbitrary limit of playing back the first 90 seconds of a video. 90 seconds? We’re not trying to limit your artistic freedom, were trying something new.”
Where are Flickr Videos shown?
Yahoo Image Search currently serves live images from Flickr photostreams as they are uploaded by users. Flickr Videos are not yet indexed in Yahoo Video, but this could be coming in the future.
Video will display alongside photos in search results, within new uploads from friends, in Explore, on the Map, in RSS feeds, and anywhere else that you are used to finding photos.
There will be some parts of Flickr where you can choose that you’d like to see either photos or video, or both, like Advanced Search. We’ve also improved group pool submission rules so group admins can specify whether they’d like their group pool to include photos, or video, or both.
