On this site, users can chop segments from web videos, stitching the clips together into a new flick. The site currently supports YouTube, Google, and Blip.tv videos. You simply provide Omnisio with the URL for a video, slide the indicators to show where you’d like each clip to begin and end, and repeat the process for as many videos as you’d like to extract clips from. Your resulting video is embeddable just like a YouTube video, but unlike on YouTube, you or your friends can make comments directly on the video, where they will show up as pop-up bubbles. For “select partnes,” Omnio.com also offers the ability to integrate your video with PowerPoint slides, giving Omnisio videos the potential for use as a professional tool. The special partners can also tag people appearing in a video or add tags to highlight important content or events. Viewers can then use the tags to skip to a particular highlight or a specific person’s appearance.

Why Omnisio.com It Might Be A Killer

Some Questions About Omnisio.com
Why can you set your clip to end at any point in a video, but are only given the option of choosing your starting point in eight second increments? Wouldn’t users like to download their video creation, rather than being limited to the embedding option? Will the advanced options like tagging and adding slides be available to the public in the future?
