Forget mixer – Media mesh-up is coming – TagLoops

Posted by Charles | October 27, 2006 .

After checking out TagLoops, all of sudden I feel the Mixers, YouTube and alike crowd are too old. I can’t sit still and my mind started spinning. If the TagLoops guys are onto something I’m thinking they are, this startup will be big, no, HUGE.

TagLoops is a web Flash movie composer. Just think about Flash studio going on web. BUT, there are a lot more to it.

I’m sure you know the whole Google’s search business is based on web links. We’ve also got earful of “mesh-up” in last couple of years in the context of “web 2.0″. Well, a link is very static without too much information. The web 2.0 mesh-up is totally up to the API provided from the service provider, say, google’s map API.

Now, move those concepts to media. A piece of media, photo, video or music contains enough information you’d like to enjoy. The API of this piece of media, on the web, is really just the URL (link) points to it. What if you can mesh-up the media together using the whole web as library and create/edit/share a movie very easily. That’s what TagLoops does.

From TagLoops, I think, you can store the media links to you library and tag them. When you composing a movie, just drag-n-drop the piece into the workspace. That media piece will automatically downloaded. Then you do all those fancy editing you found in Flash Studio. And, publish it.

Why this media mesh-up is so significant? It opens a new wide channel to distribute information, easily. Blog make it so easy that everyone becomes a reporter. Then TagLoops can (maybe will) makes everyone a TV station (channel) owner.

Imagine this, instead of writing a blog entry, you get on to your MV Station(mediavision, my new term), TagLoops based, quickly compose a 1 min movie on a topic. All the raw materials (photo, video, music, etc.) are from link on the web. Publish it and done. I know TagLoops still has lots to do to get there. But the possibility is realistic now. Let’s hope TagLoops won’t stop at editing part of the possibility.

The UI is clean. Maybe because it’s the guest edition I was on, I’ve got little bit disoriented at beginning. The tutorial movie helped a lot later on. Can’t find preview button anywhere, which could be most frequently used button if available.

After all, it’s still in alpha. I’ll keep my eyes on it and have some follow up later about it.
