Yahoo adds video to Flickr

If you haven't already heard enough about Yahoo this week, online photo-sharing community Flickr has launched video sharing. Flickr pro members can now upload personal video clips and share them with friends. Video clips are limited to 90 seconds long and 150MB in size, and users have the ability to make video private, visible to friends and family, or public. There's also the ability to share video clips as a part of a set or embed them on third-party websites, tagging and geotagging capabilities, uploading directly from camera phones and an API for third party developers.

Flickr current gets 42 million monthly worldwide visitors and stores more than two billion photos. However, YouTube remains the king of video having shown 70 million people in the U.S. 2.9 billion video clips in February. In comparison, Fox Interactive Video showed 406 million clips to 21 million people while Yahoo showed 245 million clips to 21 million people.
