AVOS Systems, a company led by YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steven Chen, has launched MixBit, a new social video service for iOS. The app includes features such as the ability to record 16-second clips known as "bits" and allows users mix as many as 256 bits into one video, as well as the capability to remix video clips shared by other users. The app also allows users to record video by touching anywhere on the screen, and enables video editing through a web interface on its official site.

MixBit lets you record, edit and publish videos as short as one second or as long as an hour--right from your mobile phone. You can also create videos without needing to shoot original content.

Touch your screen anywhere and hold to record.

Videos are taken in multiple clips, or "bits," as long as 16 seconds each. A video can include as many as 256 clips.

Clips are stored as independent elements but play as one seamless video.

Drag and drop to rearrange, cut or delete clips, as well as save or publish, right from your phone.

Check out to view, collect and mix videos contributed by the community.
MixBit can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Vine, Look what you've done!

Seems pretty cool but now it's becoming a bit overcrowded with each new one trying to outdo the last. 6 seconds to 15 seconds and now 16!:eek:

No! No, no, not 15 seconds! I said 16. Nobody's comin' up with 15. Who watches a video in 15 seconds? You won't even get your brain goin, not even a mouse on a wheel...

Up north
I thought Instagram's video-feature had killed both Vine and anyone else trying to enter this market?
Is Vine currently growing — or are users leaving?
