(101) Send Links from Videos to Phones with Linklib

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Sunday 11th November, 2012

11:00am to 2:00pm (GMT)

Want to learn how to send time synched links from online videos to a smartphone or tablet?

Why would you? Have you ever googled films and TV-shows while you watch them? Do you think Youtube's popup annotations in the middle of a video are distracting?

Linklib lets filmmakers, filmfans, journalists and bloggers send time synched links from a full screen video directly to their audiences' phones.

Instead of googling an actor, fact checking an election video or feverishly trying to find the soundtrack to that TV-series, just pick up the phone and the information is right there.

It's fun, easy and will change how you watch video forever.

What kinds of things could you do with this?

Do you want to fill your favorite Game of Thrones episode with geeky references? Are you a Libyan democracy activist that needs to send revolutionary skill sets from your video blog? Do you want to add mashups and remixes to that banging new Outkast music video? Or just throw in a bunch of Wikipedia explanations to all those strange facts in your favorite TED-talk?

Linklib lets you add Stephen Colbert's truthiness to a Mitt Romney campaign video or deleted scenes to your documentary film without ruining the traditional viewing experience.

After a demo of the open meta data library “Linklib.org” everyone gets to author their favorite (or most hated) videos.
