I’ve been playing a lot with QIK recently — it’s very smart, but there’s one issue I’ve got with it: If I don’t have network coverage, I don’t appear to be able to stream my videos.
FlixWagon sent me through a newsletter this morning — it’s second item contained this paragraph:
Can you hear me now…?
You never know when something Flix-worthy might occur. Maybe you come across some break-dancers in the subway that would make an awesome video but you have no service, what do you do? Record it anyway! Flixwagon guarantees that all videos WILL be uploaded to our site. That means that even if you have no network coverage, your videos will be uploaded online the second that you do.
This is good news. I managed to stream a QIK video of my friend Angus running the London Marathon on Sunday — unfortunately it didn’t upload, for one reason or another, because I was something like 10 minutes behind streaming and I ended up going into the tube and losing network signal.
I’m excited by the innovation between the likes of FlixWagon and QIK. I’m going to put FlixWagon on the E90 again and see how it functions.
