Photobucket Launches Enhanced Plug-In

    June 25, 2007

Photobucket has announced the launch of the Photobucket Media Plug-in 2.0, an enhanced version if its image and video hosting plug-in.

The Photobucket Media Plug-in offers a way for developers to have access to a large collection of media assets. It allows users on other Web sites to search for stored photos, videos and images from Photobuckets library without leaving partner sites.

Users of partner sites will be able to search for content to upload and share on their own sites. Partner Web sites that embed the plug-in will see users spending more time on their sites.

"Photobucket revolutionized digital media sharing by enabling content to be linked to third party sites," said Alex Welch, CEO of Photobucket. "Adding search to Photobucket’s Media Plug-in’s instant image and video uploading features brings an extremely compelling service option for our partners."

"We’ve seen a tremendous surge in photo, image and video search, with users consistently coming back to look for the latest user-generated content to share with the world. Now, our partners can receive free digital media hosting and search, vastly improving their user experience and engagement."
