The free service lets users select video clips in virtually any format from their personal computers or mobile phones and upload to their free eyespot account. Users then can personalize their video by adding music and photos, and create custom videos for sharing with others. The eyespot-sharing feature allows user-generated video to be sent to mobile phones or published to Web sites and blogs with one click. Eyespot enables collaboration on video mixes, where consumers can combine video clips, music, and photos from their own collections with others in the community.
Video mixes are posted to public groups and blogs on the eyespot Web site, where other members collect and use them to create remixes and derivative productions. The service also enables tagging of video clips with descriptive labels, which allows other members to find footage for inclusion with their own video using the eyespot search engine. The open system supports files such as AVI, MPEG, MOV, DivX, WMV, MP3, JPG, and GIF, and works with Internet Explorer and Firefox on both the PC and Mac.
