uvLayer video service
Unknown Vector today launched the uvLayer beta, a free, multi-service video sharing community that allows users to communicate with friends across several social networks. uvLayer relies on Adobe AIR to provide a full-screen video organization and sharing area. Users can sort videos however they choose, by stacking, dragging, and throwing video thumbnails across the virtual tabletop. uvLayer requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, and the Adobe AIR browser plugin.
Users can also play uvLayer videos without having an open browser window, by anchoring the video to the desktop in a small window. uvLayer can draw videos from many different services, and sharing videos is achieved by dragging and dropping the desired video stacks on to buddy icons.
Facebook users can also embed video using the included tools, requiring no extra coding or typing, while future versions of uvLayer will allow users to post directly on their own website.
