Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, founders of the video service YouTube launched a new service MoxBit – this is an application for i-devices, which allows recording and editing short video clips.
One video clip may be maximum of 256 bytes – this is 16-second fragments, which are united into one. The total running time of the clip can reach one hour. Videos are do not obviously have to be recorded on iPhone: it can be made up from already ready clips.
Created clip is possible to be saved on a device as draft copy, or immediately send via Facebook, Twitter, or at the site MixBit.com. Also, it is possib;e to create remixes from other users` video clips via web-interface.
At the moment only iOs version of MixBit is available. In the near future developers promise to adapt the program to Android.
Mr.Nurley announced about this project in March. He underlined that the aim of his new project is not in YouTube killing, which will always be on demand, but is creation of a principally new platform, which is much more suitable to joint work and creation. The MixBit application is already available in Apple App Store, and developers promise in the near weeks to launch the Android-version of the program. This service will compete with such applications as Vine and Instagram, however will differ from them by widened limit of the video clip length.
