Press Release London, UK, June 15th 2010

Today, online video hosting platform vzaar released the vzaar video app for iPhones that enables their customers to update online video content while on the move.

Click to download on the app store vzaar, who’s customers include Toys”R”us and The Press Association claims this application will give its users the ability to upload and share content when mobile as well as manage and monitor video content.


This release comes on the back of the Objective-C Framework API that enables iPhone and iPad developers to build video apps for the Apple iFamily devices.

According to vzaar CEO Stephen McClusky, “We built this app to test our new objective-C framework that allows developers to use our video platform API when creating video apps for Apple mobile devices. We are very pleased with the outcome and it means our customers can upload video to their site directly from their mobile phones.”

The vzaar dev team have also released a little tool that syncs Twitter with Google Latitude which takes your last location from twitter (if you’re tweeting with location on) and sends it to Google Latitude every 5 minutes or so. Not related to video the tool called, location-sync, is a skunkworks project from the labs of vzaar. It can be seen on their labs site here.

The Apple Store provides more information on the iPhone application here.

For more information on the vzaar API visit the developer hub.

Click to download on the app store We have some great news from the vzaar tech department today. And since it’s all Apple related we feel it’s well timed with the announcement of the iPhone 4 this week.

Firstly we have a vzaar application available today from the app store. Click here to download it. The vzaar app gives you full control of your vzaar account from all Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and on devices with a camera you can even edit and upload video directly.

We built this using our API and the Objective C library we built (see more about our API on our developer hub). The library and application was built by Daniel Kennett of Kennettnet. He’s done a fantastic job, and any iOS developer picking up the framework will be able to build video into there own iPhone/iPad and OSX applications very easily.

And finally…

… a bit of fun to announce the framework. We did a little labs / skunkworks project that sends your  Twitter location to Google Latitude. It’s not really video related we know, but we thought it was kinda fun and that it would be of use to the kinds of developers out there who might be building Apple Apps and would find the vzaar video API framework just what the needed. You can see this here, under vzaar labs: http://vzaar.com/labs/location-sync/

Press Release London, UK, May 27th 2010

Apple developers can now quickly build video capabilities into their own applications

vzaar, the leading professional online video hosting platform, today announced the release of Objective-C Framework for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone, iPad and desktop developers.

“We have developed an Objective-C library for our API to help Apple developers build video apps right into their own applications. There is no quicker way to enable your iPhone or iPad application with video.” comments Adrian Sevitz, Co-Founder and CTO of vzaar.

vzaar commissioned Daniel Kennet (of Kennettnet) to develop the framework. Daniel says of the framework “I designed the framework to fit in with a Cocoa developer’s existing skill set — the vzaar framework fits in with Cocoa’s design patterns and you’ll feel right at home as soon as you start working with it.”

vzaar’s API has recently been used by Budweiser and MTV for online campaigns asking users to upload short videos that are entered into a competition. The vzaar video hosting API powers some of the internet’s largest video sites and this new Framework will help developers build video apps for devices such as the iPhone.

“This is an exciting release for us at vzaar and credit to the vzaar development team whose idea it was to build this framework. We have a number of clients already using this library in development and we are eagerly awaiting the release of their applications.” comments, Stephen McCluskey, CEO of vzaar.
