Twango Introduces Webcam Video Widget

Instantly Record, Email and Embed Webcam Videos With Video Comments Anywhere

REDMOND, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- Twango, a leading provider of next generation media sharing services, today announced a new webcam video widget that allows anyone to record videos with a webcam, capture video comments, share them via email and embed them in blogs. The widget automatically recognizes webcams from popular hardware manufacturers such as Creative, Logitech and Apple and allows users to record a video with a single click.

"Our webcam video widget makes it really easy to record a video with your webcam and embed it in your blog or website. And what's cool is that other people can add their own webcam comments right in place. You can literally host a 'face to face' forum just by embedding this widget into your blog or sending the link around in email," said Twango Co-Founder, Randy Kerr. "We're really excited to see the kinds of video conversations this will make possible."

After a video is recorded, the user can choose to send a link to the recorded video to someone via email, or embed it on a blog or website such as MySpace. Viewers of the video can easily record comments, which appear alongside the video in a scrolling strip. The webcam video widget is free and Twango membership is not required to use the basic features. However, Twango members have the advantage of storing their webcam videos in their Twango account, and managing video comments left by others.

"We're always looking for ways to help people use media in interesting ways," said Twango Co-Founder, Jim Laurel. "Widgets are becoming wildly popular across the Web, and the most compelling will be the ones that interact with Web services and structured data. Widgets that connect to powerful service platforms get us one step closer to the point where developers and even consumers can actually assemble useful applications by embedding these mini apps wherever they need them."
