Awesome Video API

We just released a cool new video feature for http://www.HomeFinder.com (my day job), that allows real estate agents, brokers, and builders to auto-create property videos with the click of a button. Creating videos for their properties makes their listing more professional, shinier, and fancier than other listings, and entices more people looking for a home for sale to contact them.  Here’s an example of a couple:

The coolest part is that agents/brokers/builders can quickly edit their videos in realtime, through their accounts on http://www.HomeFinder.com. Here’s a screenshot:

I’d like to thanks the great folks at Stupeflix.com, we used their very elegant video api to power things.

    Hey Doug,

    Great post and I know it’s a few years old but I was wondering what happened to the Video editing functionality as it doesn’t seem to be on the site anymore. Did you find that the video feature was well-received and used? Interested to hear any learnings you have as we were thinking about doing something similar for one of our clients.

      It’s still there, just behind an account wall now. The functionality is decently well used, but not hugely popular. The API makes launching something super simple, so why not launch it and see how it does?
