New Fliqz Tool Allows Movable Type 4 Bloggers to Post Video in a Snap

Fliqz Plugin Further Expands Movable Type 4 Capabilities by Integrating Video Upload Tool

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - Video integration for blogs has never been easier. Today Fliqz, a leader in complete plug-and-play video solutions, introduced the first video plugin to be available on the Movable Type 4 publishing platform. The Movable Type 4 platform is the flagship product of Six Apart, the world's leading independent blogging software and services company, and is designed to meet the Web site content management needs and serve as a social media platform for growing organizations. Movable Type 4 bloggers can now use the free Fliqz tool to instantly and easily upload video into their Movable Type 4 blogs.

"Fliqz' instant video tool extends the Movable Type 4 platform by making it easy for our users to incorporate video," said Chris Alden, CEO of Six Apart. "Video is on the list of must-haves for any blogger, and this new feature is sure to enrich the content of our users' blogs."

Combining the Movable Type 4 platform for building robust blogs and social media sites, with Fliqz' easy to use unique video plugin makes video uploading a snap. Rather than waste precious time uploading a video from a third party site, only to have to return and embed the code into their blog post; Movable Type 4 users can use the Fliqz video upload tool. After the initial installation, Movable Type 4 users click the "Fliqz Video Browse" button within the "Create Entry" toolbar to select their video, and within a few moments their video is placed directly into the HTML of their post. The Fliqz plugin for Movable Type 4 can be downloaded at: http://www.fliqz.com/public/aspx/MovableType.aspx or found in the Movable Type 4 plugin/widget directory: http://plugins.movabletype.org/movabletype4-video-plugin/.

Fliqz gives businesses of any size the ability to compete on a level playing field online by offering cost-effective online video solutions that are easy to implement/manage and do not have requirements based on advertising or number of viewers. Similar online competition exists between blogs, as they often have to compete with larger sites for viewers and mindshare. In order to stand out from the crowd bloggers go to great lengths to customize their pages, and one of the best ways to change the dynamic of their posts is to incorporate video.

"We enable every blogger the ability to easily implement online video to their site, no matter how many viewers they have. Our users constantly tell us that having online video gives them a step up when competing with others," said Kristopher Drey, vice president of product management for Fliqz. "We have seen that adding online video to a blog is one of the best ways to bring a new element to this type of communication -- making the posts more compelling to viewers."
