We started thinking about how frustrating it is that when you want to share part of a video with someone you have to literally write out check out this clip starting at 33 seconds in, we started there and kept building.
Foster City, CA (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
ReelGeni.us launched today out of Building 20 Labs, an incubator operated by Dan Goikhman and Krish Arvapally, along with development partner Namrix.
The team started thinking about how frustrating it is to share a specific part of a video, one has to literally write out - "check out this clip starting at 33 seconds in". They started there and kept building. Reelgeni.us is on a mission to map and index the world’s digital media - to go beyond the meta-data and surface life's most amazing moments - and then to make them shareable and viewable in new and interesting ways. Reelgeni.us harnesses the power of users to contribute and bring out the world's most amazing moments. Reelgeni.us supports YouTube currently and has plans to expand from there to other video platforms.
In order to tag videos, a user installs a chrome browser plug-in and then starts watching videos on YouTube just like they typically do. When they feel like tagging or sharing something, they simply click on the moment right on the reelgeni.us tag bar. Tagging videos powers the search functionality at http://www.reelgeni.us. The site is available on both desktop and mobile, though tagging is limited to the chrome web plug-in for now.
