Mozilla Releases Popcorn Maker

Via Journalism.co.uk:

Mozilla has released Popcorn Maker 1.0, which allows journalists to create web-native video that includes real-time tweets, Google maps, images and more.

Popcorn Maker allows users to drag and drop video from YouTube or Vimeo or audio from SoundCloud and then add other other elements such as images, tweets and links to content on the web. For example, tweets that include a hashtag can be added and will be automatically updated with new tweets containing that hashtag after the video is published.

For those with coding skills, there is a Javascript library called Popcorn.js, which was launched at last year’s MozFest.

After watching the videos and poking around a bit, Popcorn Maker feels like Storify but with a video wrapper.

Visit the site to how it’s been used. For example, this story on New York’s Stop and Frisk laws; this neighborhood tour¬†that mashes up Google Maps and Wikipedia; or this remix of a TED Talk.¬†
