Flickr Opens Up Video, HD For Pro Users

Flickr’s video hosting features puzzled me when they launched. 90 seconds, why would I limit myself to that really? But fine, if you shoot a few vids with your digital camera then that might cut it, most won’t support long clips anyway. Video used to be available for pro (as in paid) users only, but they’re opening it up to everyone now. Still 90 seconds limit, and 150 MB/video. Pro users can upload videos in HD (where 150 MB might be a tad small, as Webware points out), and so can regular users but it’ll play in SD only. Also, there’s an upload cap on regular users, just two videos/month.

No, I’m still not sold on Flickr Video. Sorry. I do appreciate the lifted set limit on free users, that really bugged me before I went pro.
