Flickr Opens Video Uploads to Everyone, Adds HD Option for Pro Users

Illustration for article titled Flickr Opens Video Uploads to Everyone, Adds HD Option for Pro Users

Flickr's somewhat stunted video feature always seemed kind of basic for a "pro" service. Now, finally, uploads have been opened to regular users, with added HD support for paid subscribers.

As with photos, regular users are severely limited in what they can upload: two standard-quality uploads a month. Pro users can upload to their heart's content, but a 90-second cap remains in place for all uploads. The HD video feature is a natural, intelligent progression for the service, added just in time for the impending avalanche of HD-capable still cameras, which are less useful for creating long-form videos than they are for taking photos that just happen to, you know, move a little bit. Check out the fledgling (but spectacular) Flickr HD Pool, to see what I mean. [Yahoo! Blog via Business2Press —Video from Flickr User Mike Black]
