Mixtapes are back - For a nicer YouTube experience
October 11, 2010 in Technology
[prMac.com] Budapest, Hungary - Dragontape Ltd. is pleased to announce a great feature update to Dragontape, the app you've been waiting for since the web went video. Dragontape is a free collaborative webservice that gives you a nicer way to enjoy and share your favorite YouTube videos. While playlists let you organize your videos okay, mixtapes go beyond introducing an uninterrupted viewing experience and a simplicity of use yet unkown to YouTube parties.
Dragontape lets you create 3 hour long playlists mixtapes of your favorite YouTube videos and lets you watch them as a continuous fullscreen show. No spinners, no page reloads, just your uninterrupted viewing pleasure.
Dragontape sports an extremely instinctive visual editor that's as simple to use as a tape recorder. Just search for some videos using the built-in search bar, then drag and arrange your clips on the timeline. During playback, the videos have the whole stage to themselves with minimal play/pause, skip forward/back controls.
Sharing and Collaboration:
As a party tool, Dragontape provides the means to share your mixtapes through your preferred flavor of social media. It even lets you invite your friends to join up and make the evening mix together.
With this latest update, Dragontape now lets you embed entire mixtapes into Facebook and blog posts. We use the oEmbed standard to make sure it works with most pages.
Dragontape is currently in beta, with the core functionality ready and working, and new features being in development, including:
* Connecting our search to other video services, such as Vimeo, DailyMotion, Metacafe, etc.
* HTML5 player, so Dragontape can be used on non-Flash devices. Yeah, it's the iPad
* Clip trimming to allow advanced mixes
