    • Let me choose a thumbnail for my videos

      12seconds automatically pics a thumbnail for videos (looks like it pics the middle frame of the video). If you happen to be blinking or mid sentence you risk looking mentally challenged.

      • Need to be able to change the size of the embedded video

        I just tried to embed my 12seconds video on my blog's sidebar but I can't seem to change the size of the video tile in the embed code. I tried changing the height and width requirements but it made no difference

        • 12 second window

          If you accept postings of up to, 15 seconds, then there were a 12 second window you could slide along the length of the file, then that would allow users to remove the first pause before the video starts and they start talking...and it may help with things being cut off at the end (like in the about us videos, for example).

          The stuff at the end is more important than the pause at the start, and this minor edit would help make the postings look a bit cleaner (instead of forcing people to rush at the instant the device…

          • support sprint mms

            You don't seem to support mobile video uploads from Sprint. Sprint is weird such that they don't attach video to the email...they just link to it.

            Flickr and other services make exceptions for this behavior. It'd be awesome if 12s did too!

              I'd love to see a way for every 12s video I record to end up embedded in a WordPress post on my self-hosted WP blog.

                  • get shozu to add you to their list of services

                    Shozu is an excellent mobile application that allows users to send media to multiple services easily (and cheaply, since the data is only sent once and then forwarded server-side). Getting 12 seconds added to their list of services would give your users an alternative to the direct email, and would get extra exposure for your service :)

                        I find it rather odd that I only see the one next and one previous video on a video page. I'd like to be able to click arrows or something to go wherever I want in the filmstrip (cf: Flickr's photostream).

                                yes accessibility is important. we are considering adding a description box for users to write whatever they need about their videos. Right now you can use the comment function (it’s not perfect, but that can work). Thanks for bringing this up!

                                One of my biggest problems with Twitter is that my tweets go out to EVERYONE following me. Sometimes, there's only a segment of these people that I want to address. I would love to be able to create a hand full of groups that I can put people into (Family) (Work) (Friends) and (All) allowing for some people to be put into multiple groups.

                                  • Properly support videos in 16:9 aspect ratio (letterboxes).

                                    When I upload videos taken on my Flip Mino HD camera (shoots in 16:9) they are stretched vertically to fit the standard 12seconds player, which is 4:3 format.

                                    Rather than stretching the videos and making faces look long, videos shot in a 16:9 aspect ratio should either be letterboxed with bars at the top and bottom of the player, or the player should adapt and show videos in their native aspect ratio.

                                      I agree. Our current video processing system is fairly primitive, so we’ll have to look into seeing how we could support this.

                                    • Make an even smaller widget available

                                      I'd love to see a completely streamlined widget with just the latest video and a link back to each user's channel. It would also be great if the video thumbnail was resizable so it would fit in smaller sidebars.

                                        • See how many "times viewed" in the video tag icon

                                          if a user scrolls over the icon that previous the video it should not only show the name of the video and author but also how many times it was viewed!
