Hands-On With MixBit, YouTube Founders’ Answer To Vine & Instagram Video


With high-speed, fourth-generation mobile internet now the norm in well-developed countries, sharing videos on the go is the next ‘in’ thing in mobile apps. Although there were plenty of video-sharing apps before it, Twitter’s Vine rebooted the category if this launched a few months ago. Facebook’s Instagram later followed suit, now Chad Hurley and Steven Chen, co-founders of the world’s most widely used video website - YouTube.com - came up with their very own take on video sharing on the run. Check it out after the jump.

MixBit for iOS

Named MixBit, the app takes aspects of Vine and Instagram, combines these with Vyclone, and adds its interesting spin for any unique video sharing app.

With MixBit, you are able to shoot films of 16 seconds or less, combine them together (up to 256 clips may be combined this way, leading to videos providing an hour), and share them on Facebook, Twitter, and MixBit’s own online community.

To aid that, MixBit comes with basic video editing tools that are sorely missing from Vine and Instagram. After recording clips in a very style just like Vine by tapping and holding anywhere on the screen, you are eligible to re-order clips, individually trim them, duplicate them, and delete them.

Video recording and editing in MixBit

But that will make MixBit yet another video-sharing app, wouldn’t it? What’s different from it is how each video recording you share publicly could be used by other MixBit users in their particular videos; Mixing Bits of other people’s videos to create another unique video.

You can readily view individual clips in other people’s public videos, and tap-and-hold the crooks to save them your ‘Saved Clips’ folder that it is possible to access from mixbit.com after registering a forex account. For some incredibly odd reason, I was struggling to find them locally with the iOS app. With these Saved Clips as well as your own, it is possible to - in principle - create unique user generated content.

On the face of it, MixBit is one more video-sharing service, but look just a little deeper, and you'll find something fundamentally different. MixBit not simply allows remixing other people’s videos, it encourages it. Right now, though, the featured video section appears to be a Vine rip-off, albeit with videos longer than 6 seconds. It’s as much as the community to come up with compelling content.

MixBit is available for iOS only at as soon as, but an Android app is on its way. You can also logon to mixbit.com to create and share videos from saved clips.
