Flickr’s Redesign Screencast Longer than 90 secs

Flickr opened up the flood-gates to their redesigned personalized homepage. Now you can get quicker access to your recent uploaded photos, recent activity on your photos and one’s you’ve commented on, and statistics. Not necessarily ground-breaking but more of a re-shuffling of content. One funny thing is they did a screencast of the new features using Camtasia Studio and it was longer than 90 seconds so they couldn’t use their own video player.  It launches a new window and the video is a little over 2 minutes long. Why aren’t they eating their own dog food or at least using Yahoo! Video’s video player? hmm..Oh well. Congrats to Flickr on their minor redesign. I hope features like people tagging get implemented. Who is the product manager over there?

Video Demo: Flickr on at&t U-verse and my Samsung HDTV

at&t u-verseFlickr

Here is a demo of Flickr using my newly acquired AT&T U-Verse (IPTV fiber product from AT&T now available in selected areas in the SF Bay Area) on my Samsung 56″ DLP HDTV.

Pros:

  • Easy access by going to channel 91
  • Looks great on my HDTV
  • Free with my at&t u-verse service and box

Cons

  • All photo sets are loaded in alphabetical order
  • If photos aren’t in a set you can’t view them
  • Can’t sort photos or sets by date
  • Can’t view my Flickr collections
  • Can’t view my Flickr video

Let me know what you think by adding a comment below. Apple has a similar integration with Flickr on their Apple TV product so if you have that product let me know what you think the pros/cons are.
