Yeah, Eileen… I hate that about a lot of those great apps… no PC edition. I can’t pry the smart phones away from my sons long enough to make one phone call much less USE it for anything else… like WORK, lol… so I normally muddle through with my laptop and Google Voice. Still… wish they’d add the PC version for old foagies… and the too often smart-less…
That said… the minute I even heard about T’s big vid addition, my little mind went all giddy, thinking of 99 ways to put it to good use! I’ve been using Jing’s 10 second video limit to make a LOT of short useful instructional vids… and the 10 second limit FORCES you to speed up your narration, use less words to say more, and makes you much more focused and less time wasteful in your movements onscreen.
Bottom line… with my video database of <10 second Jing clips, I can edit together a new vid daily… or more… just from all the clips I’ve already created.
For how-to and process oriented videos, building a database of useful visuals, narrated actions, etc. is a HUGE time-saver. After 30+ years of music and video library management experience, all that ticky-tacky tedious work is finally starting to pay off as an online resource.
So if Twitter has a 6-second limit… don’t worry. A LOT can be said, shown, illustrated, felt, played, viewed, etc. in a 6 second clip. My biggest question is… will creative commons clips be available to US to use in compilations elsewhere, as YouTube does?
