YouTube Mobile Uploading

YouTube announced a new feature today that allows uploading of videos from a mobile device that supports Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). Users need to create a moblie profile before uploading videos. Sign up here.

I use my camera phone to upload pictures directly to Flickr all the time (yesterday’s banana-yellow ridiculous rental car, for example). If my phone had the ability to create video, I’d be using this for YouTube all the time, too.

And by the way, I’ll never understand why Flickr gave the video market away to YouTube. Maybe they (Flickr) know something YouTube doesn’t know about the real costs of this business.
