Yahoo's Flickr in 2008
For direct comparisons to popular photo-sharing services expanding into video, look no further than Yahoo's Flickr, which added the feature in 2008.
Initially the feature was limited to paying Pro members, who could upload clips up to 90 seconds in length, and 150MB in size. That limit was later changed to 500MB, then 1GB uploads and 3 minute video clips as part of Flickr’s big overhaul in May. The idea was originally pitched as a "long photograph" with a burgeoning crop of digital SLRs adding hi-def video functionality.
