I have been very keen to try out the new Instagram video
But up until now I have not been able to capture anything with Instagram video…
It does not want to record for more than 5 seconds, and then it does not want to upload the video.
And I wasted precious video moments because it could not be saved!
Not on my camera roll, nor on Instagram.
That's where Animoto has the upper hand with regards Vine and Instagram video.
With Animoto you make a choice of the photos and videos on your camera roll, where Vine and Instagram video requires a straight recording while in the app.
Which implies that you loose the recorded video when you can’t upload! Or sometimes you do not want to share it in a public domain, but you would still like to hold on to the video.
Not possible in Vine and Instagram video!
Instagram video gets a thumbs down for now!
This week is a breather week, and I am extremely glad. There are still some stuff of the previous weeks’ ANZ 23 Mobile Things I want to check out…
I have been playing around with Animoto some more.
I uploaded some photos and videos for an Animoto video.
I was very glad to see that videos are also incorporated, not only photos.
I want to try and embed it, and it seems it is possible through a YouTube upload. (?)
I will try it this week at the library.
I tested Animoto for ANZ 23 Mobile Things.
I used photos of our recent trip on the Johannesburg Red Bus, traveling the city:
Jozi Red Bus
It is a very polished animation, and it looks very professional!
It takes extremely long to upload the photos, which is a bit frustrating.
Again, I saw that this was only available to upload on the iOS store, and not on Blackberry. I would not have gotten very far if I had to do this on my BB!
