Vine Now Allows Sharing Others' Videos Via Twitter, Facebook Or A Web Embed

March 29, 2013
Vine, the video-sharing app, has received a new update. This version is the first where you can share posts by others to Twitter or Facebook, or embed them on the Web. Previously, users could only share their own videos. Embedded posts are available in two distinct styles and can be created from the Vine website or sent through the app. This distinction is important. Currently, you must visit the website to gain access to the actual embed code. While this can be done through mobile Safari, a better way would have been through the app itself. Unfortunately, for the time being anyway, you can only send "link" to the code via the app. Embed codes may be customized by size (600px, 480px, and 320px), and may be formatted in simple or postcard format. Simple:


The new sharing options are available by clicking on the ellipsis icon underneath a video. From there, tap "Share this post" and make your selection.

The update also resolves an issue that caused the iPhone’s camera to freeze when starting a new recording.

The free Vine app is available for download in the App Store. See also: Vine Now Gives You The Option To Unfollow The Once NSFW Editor's Picks Feed, and Watch Out Vine, Vimeo Buys Echograph To Get Into GIF-Making Business.
