Company

Business description: Fliqz is a community founded on the premise that you should never have to delete your video assets. We are committed to the premise that it should be fun, free, and easy to preserve, manage, and share your memories with friends and family. They should never lie forgotten in a box in some dusty attic, but should always be available, accessible, and easy to post into websites, blogs, or share via email and over the web. Today those old film reels sit decaying in a box somewhere, waiting for a grandchild to discover them and relive a few precious moments of family history. When I talk with aunts and relatives, they always mention my father’s film collection, and the fun we had sharing those moments of past encounters together. But today the family is spread all over the world, the film stock sits forgotten in someone’s attic, and those happy winter days in the living room are all but forgotten. Users don’t have to navigate away from the website they are currently browsing. To embed a video link, users simply select a video on their desktop, then click a button at Flizqz to receive both the permalink and a snippet of code for embedding the video into any blog, classified, webpage, or social networking site. Fliqzster is the only tool that allows any site to offer video uploading capabilities to its visitors without requiring a client download or any technical integragion with the site.
