Abazab says yo!

Filed under: Internet, Video — harshdeep @ 5:53 am

This is the subject of the beta invite I just got from Abazab. I quickly created an account, shot a little video from my Nokia 6630 and uploaded it (you've to mail the clip to me@zab.bz to upload it – the address is tied to your account through your email address). It's kinda cool actually. It let me customize a widget in which others will be able to play the videos that I upload – they call it the playbox. With my limited aesthetic sense, this is how it looked after some tweaks –

Abazab widget

In case you want to see a very exciting video of my cubicle walls showing off a Geek Quiz Certificate and Best Special Effects trophy (for an amateur commercial that I didn't have anything to do with), please follow the link to my old Blogspot blog as WordPress won't let me insert the HTML clipping for abazab widget.

I think it would be very useful to have community playboxes in Abazab. For example, there could be a common playbox for everyone in my college batch – everyone can post videos, they are all there in the same playbox and anyone can host it on his blog. It'd be a cool way to stay in touch.

  2. Yea… I did see Alif Laila a few times, but the stories were too complex for me 🙂

    Companies keep coming up with weirder names every day. Here is a website that creates a unique name for your web 2.0 company 🙂 http://andrewwooldridge.com/myapps/webtwopointoh.html

  3. my web 2.0 company as per andrew woolridge’s ideas

    Your company name:
    Your company product:
    tag-based widgets via microformats

    i neither like the name nor the idea, probably i’ll keep refreshing until it gives me an interesting enuf idea, otherwise i’ll just stick with my present job 🙂

  4. […] Some time back, I talked about Abazab and Umundo – these applications let you upload videos from your mobile (and desktop too) to your blog. […]
