Twitter may have pulled the plug on Vine app as it was, but this doesn’t mean that the short looping video creating app is dead. Recently Vine’s website has been updated to act as an archive of short looping videos created from 2013 to 2017.
Just days after Twitter resurrected the Vine app in the form of Vine Camera app, the microblogging giant has revamped vine.co greatly bringing to us videos archived by the year as well as in a number of categories including Animal, Art, Comedy, Edits, Music & Dance, Sports and Weird. Beyond that Twitter has also ensured that each of the vines is accompanied by the metadata such as likes, revines, username of the creator, posting date etc.
The website also has a community section that features notable Vines such as Most Revined, Most Revined Fail, Most Looped Magic, Most Liked and more. The Creator Spotlights section is a collection of top Viner’s archives.
As far as the Vine Camera app is concerned, you can use it to create 6-second long looping videos and share them on Twitter. The app has a range of tools as well including multi-clip trimming, grid overlay, AF focus, ghost tool, flash and front-facing camera. Similar to what Instagram offers, you can save videos in drafts on Vine Camera as well to post them later. You can save these videos on your device as well.
Vine and Twitter in a blogpost had earlier said, “All of your Vines will continue to live on the vine.co website, so you can browse all of the amazing videos you created over the years.”
While users can’t download their Vines anymore, the platform will give them a way to remain in touch with their creations. Vine Archive is a vast library of videos that can be searched for a profile or as highlights from a year starting 2013 to 2017.
