An Ecosystem Is Born: Animoto Opens Up API

We're big fans of Animoto, a website that lets you easily create photo and video slideshows matched to music. The site is constantly innovating its nifty product, most recently adding an iPhone app and the ability to incorporate video. For those not familiar with Animoto, the startup basically allows you to take your images, video and your music and mash them together to create cool videos. What makes the videos cool is the company's technology that renders the pictures so they're in-step with the music you've chosen, adding nice transition effects. This morning, Animoto is opening up its API, allowing partners to now incorporate Animoto's compelling technologies into independent sites

The first API that being rolled out for the Animoto Partner Platform is Animoto Quickstart. The API essentially allows any website to tap into Animoto's video creation flow. The aim is to make Animoto one click away from any website that has photos, videos or music. Quickstart allows websites to connect their own content, including photos, video clips and music to Animoto as the first step in creating an Animoto video. So partners can integrate Animoto's video slideshow creation tool into their sites. And the startup promises that Quickstart takes only hours to a partner to set up on a site.
