Video hosting in Micro.blog

We’ve updated Micro.blog today with a big feature: video upload to your microblog. The iOS and macOS apps — as well as our iOS app for photos, Sunlit — have all been updated to support video.

Video upload and storage is based on our podcast hosting plan. If you’d like to post video, you can learn more and upgrade here. Just like podcasts, video hosting is designed for short videos, from a few seconds to 1-2 minutes. Each video should be 45 MB or less, but there’s no limit on the number of videos you can upload, and videos are stored at your own domain name.

We are very excited about this and can’t wait to see how people use it. Now that we have this foundation for video, I’m looking forward to expanding it based on feedback. I think there’s a lot we can do. (There were also a couple of last-minute bugs with playback on iOS… We’ll get those fixed soon.)
