VoxSurf has just announced the UK availability of their 3Gvidcast service, that allows anyone to shoot video on their mobile phone and have it automatically uploaded via a multimedia text message to their favourite video web sites, or sent to an email address.
Users simply make a 3G video call to ‘62026’ which then sends their video to YouTube, Daily Motion, and other popular online video hosting services.
The service uses the same technology as video calling, providing an unlimited recording pipeline. VoxSurf claim that it’s ‘the most streamlined video experience on the market’, with no need to install special software or upload mobile video to a PC first.
It costs nothing to sign up, with calls costing 50p (about $1) a minute.
The service rolled out in the UK today, and will be available to other global mobile operators from March 1st.
In related news, Vodafone has done a deal with YouTube to allow UK users to view a daily selection of videos, and upload their own footage, via the Live! service. It’s similar to a deal YouTube already have with Verizon in the US.
