Animoto | Turn Your Photos & Videos on iPhone

CEO and cofounder of Animoto, Brad Jefferson said, “Animoto videos have always looked great on a big-screen TV and now it’s one-click easy for families to enjoy their Animoto videos on their home televisions without messing with wires or requiring a DVD Player. In less time than it takes to pop popcorn, you can now create a professional-looking Animoto video from photos on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and play it for your family on your TV.”

Animoto, a website that lets you easily create photo and video slideshows matched to music. The startup basically allows you to take your images, video and your music and mash them together to create cool videos. Not only is the platform easy to use, but it also renders the pictures so they’re in-step with the music you’ve chosen, adding nice transition effects. Today, the company is expanding its ecosystem with a new partner platform that allows third-party developers to embed Animoto’s video slideshow creation tool on their sites.

The AirPlay functionality has been made very simple for consumers to utilize. They first need to update their iOs to version 4.3 and check that their applications for Animoto and Apple TV are in sync with the up to date versions.

The user will then hit the AirPlay icon, which will display in the bottom right of the video player, to show a list of devices they can utilize to play their videos. They will then simply select the TV option.

The TV viewing can be accessed through the iPad and Animoto iPhone applications as well as through the usage of mobile Safari via the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad.
