Tel-Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) April 2, 2007 – 5min.com (http://www.5min.com) is a new place to find user-generated five minute video solutions for any practical question.
The idea behind the website is very simple -- everyone is an expert in something and has something to teach others, so why not share that knowledge for the better of the whole?
The internet is full of answers but most of them are textual. Obviously, it's not enough. A video explanation makes for a much better option when looking to learn something on the web. How to do yoga postures, how to change a flat tire, how to apply your makeup like a professional -- it's all in 5min.
To compliment the Videopedia vision and bridge the gap between textual and visual information, 5min has developed The Smart Player™. While uploading a video, the creator can help others better understand the demonstration by adding a textual storyboard to the video. The Smart Player™ also allows viewers to watch the video in slow motion or frame by frame, zoom in and out, and more.
5min is an internet startup company founded by three Israeli entrepreneurs: Ran Harnevo, Hanan Lashover and Tal Simantov.
"We believe that the field of knowledge on the web, is still untapped," says 5min's CEO, Ran Harnevo. "5min is a place for practical solutions and therefore, its whole strategy is to implement new technologies in that field, allowing users to benefit from supporting features they won’t find in the huge, but nonspecific, video sites."
