Flickr has announced it is extending the ability to upload video to all of its users, previously only Pro members could add video clips.

The videos can be up to 90 seconds long and free members can upload two videos per month, in addition to their 100MB monthly photo upload limit.

Flickr also is allowing high-definition video to be uploaded to the site. The Yodel Anecdotal Blog offers details. "Because our focus has always been on allowing our members to showcase their vision in the best way possible, we’re also enabling HD video uploading and viewing today."



"Only Pro members can upload videos in HD, but our entire community will benefit by being able to view high quality videos."

One other new feature that has been added is the Flickr Clock. "Through Flickr Clock, members will be able to share their vision of what’s happening at any given minute around the world."

"We’ll be able to display these videos according to the approximate time that they were taken, so you can see what’s happening at different moments in time."

    Seems like video is getting hot on the internet. Flickr might just compete with Youtube indirectly..

    I still can’t see flickr’s idea in adding video. The only reason would be for short video snippets for fun, but facebook is much better for that since you already have all your friends their. Same with photos. Flickr should focus on making a good community for people who has a real interest in photography.

    The HD video sounds interesting but why is it limited only to Pro members? Still not sure if Flickr can compete with YouTube. At the end of the day it’s Yahoo Vs Google over again!

    Why do this when you can load all the video you want on youtbue? Why worry about the time constraints here? Makes no sense at all……………..let Flickr keep it’s bandwidth and stay “cool”.
