The New YesVideo App
Sharing your favorite videos, moments and pictures from YesVideo has just gotten easier with the YesVideo iPad app. If you aren’t familiar with YesVideo, it’s a video transfer service. You can take home movies and videos from all sorts of formats and have them converted to DVD. Once you use YesVideo to convert them, you also have access to them online. With YesVideo’s new iPad app, you can share, look at highlights, take snapshots of the video and favorite memories right from your iPad.
Getting started with the app is simple. You can visit the iTunes app store and download it FREE for any compatible Apple device. Those compatible with the app include:
- iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s, 5
- iPod Touch 3rd, 4th and 5th generation
It does require iOS 6.0 or later as far as software goes. Once you have downloaded the app, you get an introductory screen and a way to login. You can either login directly to your YesVideo account or connect it with Facebook.
I have a few different home movies that I’ve converted including the birth of my first son and a pageant that I competed in back in high school. Once I launched the app, I was able to see a highlighted video right on my homescreen. As a highlight, it was orchestrated with music.
From this screen, you can choose various videos that YesVideo has highlighted in the app, or click on the tab at the top that says All My Videos. Once you tap that, it shows you the videos you have had converted. You can then select the video and view clips and highlights of that video.
It is incredibly easy to share your videos via Facebook or e-mail. You can also make a snapshot of a certain moment in time or add a video clip to your favorites. If you are familiar with Apple Airplay, you can also project your home movies using this app!
The highlights, snapshots and favorites are all down at the bottom of the app.
Overall, the app is easy to use and I had most if it figured out within about 10 minutes. In future updates, it would be fun to see more social sharing options like Twitter and Flickr.
You can download the YesVideo app for FREE from the iTunes store. It’s definitely one worth checking out!
