Mojiti – Videos In Your Own Words


I was having a discussion with a friend the other day about how it would be pretty nifty to be able to add comments within video. Viewable (as an option) upon playback – and offering the ability to do this by the masses.

And today, I find Mojiti.

Annotate videos with text, shape, images and more. A fantastic concept and taking video production and viewing online one step further.

The process of annotating a video is pretty simple.

Enter the url of your video online or upload direct to Mojiti. Annotate using Mojiti spots at any point and as many times as you wish.

Then…blog it, email it or embed it across various sites for everyone to see.

The recently popular “Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us” is a great example to see how this works. Not only is the video (standard version shown below in my earlier post – ‘Web2.0 – The Movie’) a great explanation of Web2.0 – you can now actively experiment with a Web2.0 feature whilst watching it.


Example: Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us – Mojiti version

  1. Will Mojiti work with a DVD authoring program for adding subtitles that can be displayd by a DVD player at the viewer’s discretion?

  2. Jason, thanks for your comment. I’m not sure on an answer to your question – but I have asked the guys from Mojiti if they can answer you.


  3. Hi Jason and Ian – thanks for your interest in Mojiti. Currently, our video annotation system only works for online videos embedded within a web browser. We support videos from all the major video sharing websites (Youtube, Metacafe, IFILM, etc.) and in all the major video file formats (Flash Video, Windows Media, Quicktime, etc.). Annotating DVDs is certainly an interesting scenario and one that we may investigate in the future.

    Thanks again for using Mojiti. Let us know if you have any other questions or feedback about our service.
