"We have always been passionate about video. We started YouTube to make it easy for everyone to share videos. Now we want to help people make great videos." That's the reason, or perhaps pitch, given by YouTube cofounders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen regarding the release of MixBit. MixBit is a new video-sharing app that's like a supercharged version of the now ubiquitous Vine app from Twitter. As in Vine, you have to tap and hold to record video clips in MixBit, where videos are made up of multiple clips or "bits" that can be as long as 16 seconds each. A MixBit video can include as many as 256 clips, which means a MixBit video can go for just over an hour. After recording your bits, you can review them by rearranging, trimming, duplicating, or deleting them. On the review screen, you can also save your bits or import existing videos and photos to add as bits. Once you're finished reviewing, you can save your video as a draft or publish it for the rest of the MixBit community to see. Speaking of the MixBit community, you can actually view and collect videos from other MixBit users on MixBit.com and remix them into your own. MixBit is available now in the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
