Users can now watch their favorite sets of Lollapalooza videos from different angles with Veokami. Navigate through clips under the video or jump to a particular song by clicking a title under ‘setlist’. These videos are captured and uploaded by fans, so if you feel like watching the event from a fan’s point of view, this app may come in handy for you. This app taps into multiple video archive sources to build together a visual timeline of varied perspectives that a user can switch between to watch how the crowd recorded the performance.
What’s more is that if you don’t like a particular angle, you can switch to another clip of the same moment as recorded from a different camera. When you switch from one angle to another, the video doesn’t start from the beginning, instead it resumes from the point in time when you switched. When the video ends, it switches to the next moment in time in a different video. You can also comment and tag people on your favorite videos. Veokami enables users a seamless viewing experience from the comforts of their home.
“Veokami is where the party continues after the festival, the place to relive your favorite sets, comment on the best videos and share the unforgettable moments of Lollapalooza.”
Lollapalooza is an annual music festival featuring popular heavy metal, alternative rock, punk rock and hip hop bands, dance and comedy performances, and craft booths. It popularized music icons such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, The Cure, Primus, The Killers, Rage Against the Machine, Arcade Fire, Nine Inch Nails, Jane’s Addiction, Metallica, Soundgarden, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, Alice in Chains, Tool, Hole, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Strokes, Lady GaGa and the Starlight Revue, and Green Day.
Another music-centric service we’ve tackled before is Gigseen, a video streaming service showing archives of live gigs—from recent ones to as far back as the 60s. There will be additional offerings as well such as pay-per-view of live concerts; discounted concert ticket sales; streaming of music documentaries and movies; and a weekly interview series hosted by Gen Matlock, formerly of the Sex Pistols. We also have Italian startup Viddy, which pretty much works like Instagram for videos. It released throughout 80 countries, garnering up to 175,000 downloads in less than a month.
Online video is a flourishing trend, gaining a lot of traction from investors. Animoto recently got $25M funding from Spectrum Equity investors. The money will be used to develop their online video creating service.
