My family played with the VINE app this weekend!
Funny thing happened during this past May long weekend. My parents came over so that my Mom could treat us to her special Beet Borscht. My Mother has recently made my kids and I very proud by becoming an “I-Nana” – sporting a brand spankin’ new IPhone 5! (I still have the 4! Booo)!
So we’re sitting at my kitchen table playing with our IPhones while Nana cooks her beloved Beet Borscht. (My daughter Sammy & I have been teaching Nana how to use her IPhone for the last couple weeks and she’s doing AMAZING)! As we’re discussing ‘apps’ and ‘Social Media’ my Mother (The INana) pipes up and says, “Have you heard about the new VINE APP? It’s all the rage! Everyone’s using it!” (Of course she says this with ‘attitude’)! Lol! I look at her and say “What? Don’t you mean VIBE”? She says, “No. VINE! I’m surprised you haven’t heard of it! I thought you were an expert”. (I love my Mom)!
I was convinced that she was wrong so I immediately go to my desk and search my friend Doug Lampi’s Facebook Business Page where I had noticed a post that he shared – that I thought was about VIBE. Well I was mistaken! It was about VINE. (His sister Jill of Webgrrl Enterprises had shared a video made on VIBE on one of her Facebook Pages the day previously). So naturally – as I’m skimming over Facebook VINE didn’t register.
So we all downloaded
And – we played!
We had an awesome afternoon making videos on VINE.
Here’s our first
(Don’t be fooled – it was all luck)!
The Vine App only allows you to create videos 7 seconds long
Seven seconds isn’t much so you have to be quick, creative and to the point. However, you can download your videos right from VINE simply by right-clicking and saving! (Awesome)! Then, you can upload your VINE Video to your YouTube channel and using the YouTube Video Editor – you can splice your videos together and add special effects.
To Combine Your VINE Videos together in YouTube
- Sign into your YouTube account
- Click ‘Upload’
- Click on ‘Video Editor’ located along the right-hand side.
- Drag & drop the videos from your library that you want to combine to the bottom of your screen. (Where it says ‘drop videos here’).
- Click on Publish.
If you’d like to see all 5 of the videos that my family & I made that day – Click here to see my VINE playlist on my YouTube channel. I must warn you though – they’re just plain silly! Not intended for research at all! There’s the INana, the borscht, the talking dog & of course – Crazy Seka! But – if you subscribe to my YouTube channel – I promise there’ll be many more Social Media instruction videos up soon!
