That video stuff is pretty big, ain’t it? Come one heck of a long way from the grainy days of VHS, that’s for sure.
In fact, according to some boffins somewhere 80% of all internet traffic will be video based by 2018. With that in mind, it’s time to make sure that you – and your business, friends, and loved ones – are up to speed when it comes to video platform knowledge.
So, take a look at these four cool apps / platforms to get ahead of the game:
Clipchamp, a user-generated video platform, offers clients a unique video solution that gives businesses a fast and simple way to upload video footage onto their company websites. Using traditional web-based upload methods, a 10-minute video could take anywhere between five to six hours to upload. However, Clipchamp technology can now makes this up to 20 times faster, both directly on Clipchamp.com or using the business’ Application Program Interface (API).

Irritatingly spelt with a lowercase first letter (hence the sigh), meaning I have to write this equally irritating introduction, ilos is a platform that allows businesses to communicate with customers and team members by instantly recording and sharing videos. This means that ilos effectively brings video creation – a powerful means of communication – up to speed with other communication methods. Ilos (I don’t care, grammar is more important than branding) has already secured partnerships with companies including Freshdesk and lesson.ly, with more businesses queuing up to get involved.

Znapin, at first glance, appears to be all about fun, and nothing more. No aggression, no hate, and no one upmanship. Essentially, it is an app that everyone should get behind. When you consider the vitriolic hate and abuse that is sprayed out by vomiting trolls every day on Twitter and other sites (Facebook comment threads for example), Znapin is a breath of fresh air. The app encourages interaction and mutual participation, with users regularly daring their friends, followers and others to post their own videos and selfies, on pretty much any topic they want to. Plus there is a superhero theme. What’s not to love?

StreamSpread bridges the gap between live streaming channels and website owners to provide a more useful and effective advertising experience for online audiences. Video streamers use drop-down filters to find suitable websites to stream their adverts, while website owners create viewports on their web pages, providing a more unique advertising experience than traditional banner ads for their audiences. Site owners also receive statistics relaying information on audience engagement and can track earnings via a real time dashboard. Winning combination, no?
