Mozilla’s Popcorn Maker Lets You Remix, Edit & Enhance Videos, All On The Web
Yesterday an exciting new ‘Popcorn’ based project was released at the Mozilla Festival. Popcorn is a video editing & hacking project from Mozilla that allows developers to integrate the web into their videos with dynamic interactivity and information. Yesterday the product ‘Popcorn Maker,‘ a 100% web-based video editing platform, was announced.
With Popcorn Maker, users can edit, add and enhance content directly into pre-existing videos. Think of it as Google Annotations on steroids with a build it editing function to manipulate video. A nice benefit for Popcorn Maker is that annotations can be linkable to exterior pages, something that is a premium feature for YouTube users.
Much like the image enhancer ThingLink, Popcorn Maker has many implementations for marketers. Video interactivity is something that can be crucial for demos, displays, manuals & reviews and Popcorn Maker makes it easy. The Google Map integration is also a very slick feature and will be a boon for anyone selling propery or locatino based services.
