FlipShare Going Dark – Don’t Lose Your Flip Videos Currently on Their Site

The news below was sent to me as a timely reminder for all who have posted Flip videos via FlipShare.

FlipShare users need to move fast – the video storage and sharing software for the defunct Flip Camera is poised to delete all videos saved to the service in less than one week.  On April 15, Cisco will remove all previously stored Flip videos, and any new videos uploaded will have a 30 day lifespan prior to the program’s closure on December 31, 2013.

A longtime Cisco technology provider, Givit (www.givit.com) – the private, cloud-based video sharing platform – has an exclusive arrangement with Flip to save all the data prior to its removal.  With one click, FlipShare users can instantly migrate their entire libraries over to Givit for permanent archiving and storage.

Givit offers the most versatile, fully secured platform for personal, private video sharing.  Compatible with all file types, formats, devices and systems, Givit makes sharing a video as simple as sending an email – completely restricted to the recipients at the creator’s choice.

Service features include:

  • Universal compatibility and ultimate simplicity – works for anyone, anywhere, any time with all your cameras, computers, phones and tablets
  • One-click integration with FlipShare lets users permanently store and privately share their videos online
  • Only video sharing service that is private by default, filling a market need
  • 2 GB of free video storage, with additional storage available with a premium service
  • Available on iOSAndroidweb and PC / Mac
