Instagram video comes to Android, iOS; brings the fight to Vine

Instagram video comes to Android, iOS

Instagram had thus far, been just about telling stories (and some great ones at that!) through photos. At its event though, Facebook, the company that bought the app last year, has added yet another dimension to that: videos. Videos on Instagram will be available for both Android and iOS users, as well as on the web.

For Instagram, videos is not just another way to share stories. The focus at the event was clearly about making it simple to share stories and still make it look great. So now when you’re getting ready to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll have the option to enter the video mode too. Click on the movie camera icon, and once inside, you can take an entire video or several sections for a total of 15 seconds.

Three simple steps

 

 

 

Since this is Instagram, how can there not be filters? There are 13 of them, newly created (and named) for videos. In addition, users can select which frame of their video looks the most enticing for their peers to watch the video. But how can Instagram make the badly shot videos look good? You know those videos of you running after the little ones and the camera shoots bumpy footage. To fix this, Instagram has Cinema, which is a feature exclusively for the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. It uses advanced stabilisation effects to give you nearly-perfect looking (albeit slightly cropped) video despite the shaking. The results looked great in the short video that was shown, but we are not sure that’s how good it will actually be.

The app itself plays the videos just like Vine does. But instead of users having to suffer through choppy scrolling because of videos playing in a loop, videos on Instagram do not play till you have lifted your finger off the screen. It really does look simple, and our first reaction was Vine better be preparing already because Instagram has just raised the bar.

 

The only downside we can think of at the moment is the 15-second length, which Kevin Systrom, the co-founder, called ideal. It still sounds too long to us, but the temptation of being able to use ’15 seconds of fame’ in future promotions might have proven too hard to resist.

    so im a relaxed person, probably always will be. but recently somethings…off. i’d this headset, having a microphone onto it that swiveled up and lower, been with them for 1 1/24 months. the swivel continues to be harmful to several months also it just drops from time to time, but before it happenned i simply travelled right into a rage even though still wearign it ripped the ear quickly it. Then yesterday i designed a mess also it was an oily soup we’d eaten and that i was cleaning up and also the cleaner wasnt conquering the oil, and so i went outdoors. travelled right into a rage,sitting lower on the chair outdoors, and closed my eyes till i settled lower. returned inside, washed up, after which went outdoors in to the forest, at random roamed around raging breaking any plant existence that may be damaged, acquired a stick striking another tree by using it a minimum of 200 occasions with one hands, so difficult i’d 4 sore spots on my small hands also it was bleeding…THEN at the moment i had been making hard boiled eggs, required one inch the pot,peeled it, also it wasnt done…it had been boiling hot,i required it from the codl water i seemed to be cooling it with, squished it within my fingers and thrown the bits over the room through my fingers. when i stated before this is extremely unlike me and that i got sick, its came lower to simply coughing but they are dated the identical. also sorry for that grammar however this is me cool down in the egg deal.

    Maybe you have experienced it that you simply can’t or you won’t want to fall asleep yet since you are extremely lonely and sad and you’re simply awaiting something which would give you happiness before sleeping. Like maybe, an e-mail which brings great news, or perhaps a message notification in the person you want a great deal or perhaps a funny comment from the friend in your facebook or get several likes in your recent instagram photo. It became of me frequently. I can not sleep since i continued awaiting something which will make me happy – not the typical everyday tiny problems which i just ignore now – however i am constantly awaiting an unexpected that will cause me to feel happy.
