“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.
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.
