Video mashup platform Weavly has integrated Vine a week after the Twitter app was launched – and the Berlin startup claims it is the first online video editor to do so. Weavly allows users to create video remixes inside their browser, providing legal access to multimedia content from the likes of YouTube and SoundCloud as well as gifs from Loopcam.
Now that content includes the clips of up to six seconds which can be created and shared with the stand-alone Vine app. Users simply input the URL of any Vine into the Weavly editor and mix the clip with other music and sounds.
In addition to Vine, Weavly has also unveiled integration with two other content sources with users now able to utilise gifs from both Tumblr and Imgur.
Oliver Lukesch is CEO and co-founder of Weavly, which launched its open beta at the end of last year. He said: “This new video format makes a lot of fun and the range of creative possibilities it offers together with our other sources are practically endless. It was immediately clear to us that we want to integrate Vine, especially after the extremely good feedback we got after integrating … Loopcam. Both apps have qualities of their own and we’re very happy to have them both on board now.”
Oliver founded Weavly in Vienna together with Christian Eder and Jürgen Riedl before they moved to Berlin to be part of the Startupbootcamp program last year. The company also pitched at the recent hy! Berlin event and will be part of the official Berlin delegation to the SXSW festival this spring.
