Fliqz, the pioneer in community-based video sharing, today introduced the Fliqzster, a free tool that allows video to be added to any site without the loss of control and hours of waiting associated with other video sharing services.
"In creating the Fliqzster, we continue to meet our promise to change the channel on video sharing -- this time by enabling any site to bring video capabilities to its members," said Benjamin Wayne, Fliqz president and CEO. "By using the Fliqzster, a site can now offer its users video functionality straight through their own site, not a third-party's."
The Fliqzster supports major video formats with files under 100MB. The tool has a high quality playback and allows an unlimited number of video files to be uploaded and posted.
"Fliqz's community orientation, strong visual quality, and fast turnaround fits in well with our community of travel bloggers," said Alistair Watters, founder of TravelBlog.org, the third largest travel site in the world. "The Fliqzster is perfect for our members who often post from remote locations and don't have the luxury of waiting 24 hours to get the code they need to embed their videos. And of course we appreciate that when our community of travelers want to upload videos, they don't have to travel off our site."
Sites using the Fliqzster can also choose from a variety of colors and orientations to better match the color scheme and layout of a particular page.
To embed a video link, users simply select a video then click to receive both the permalink and a snippet of code for embedding that video into any blog, classified, webpage, or social networking site.
The Fliqzster taps the resources of the Fliqz platform, which features better ease of use, video quality and social networking than any other video-sharing site on the Web. Unlike other online video services that focus on broadcasting to the masses, Fliqz focuses on communities, families and friends -- making the service particularly valuable to websites with a community-based focus.
