If you have been live streaming videos from Qik on your Nokia phones, then you might like to know that Qik Premium was released today exclusively for the Ovi store. It gives you the ability to save your videos from qik.com in the mpeg-4 format, higher quality transcoding, and access to upcoming features.
I woke up early Saturday to play basketball and saw one of my buddies set up a pocket HD camcorder to get some video from the games. This reminded me that I can take videos on the spot and share with my friends (almost) live from my Nokia phone with Qik.
Last Friday, Sheila and I went to the City Clerk’s office and got married. There were only six people in the room, but a few more people saw the short ceremony live. I asked her dad to hold the Nokia N85 to stream the event using the Qik application. Just like our engagement, I also used the Ping.fm service to announce it with the N85.
I just noticed that Qik got updated to version .0898 while setting it up on the Nokia E71. One change I see is that it uploads restored files. I don’t exactly know what restored files are, but I’m guessing they are videos that did not get fully uploaded and Qik tries to resume it. I made a video with the new version and made another video making the video. Got it?
It’s unbelievable what our phones can do. We know lots of people tweet what they’re doing on Twitter, but with the addition of a Nokia phone and the Qik service, you can SHOW people what you’re doing right now. This is possible by automatically letting Twitter know whenever you start streaming on Qik. I’ll show you how.
Have you ever recorded a live video stream via Qik that you also wanted to upload on Facebook? Don’t want to have to download the video off the Qik website on your laptop or your phone? Can’t install the live player on your site? Well, upgrade to the new version and see what’s what. The streamed videos are now also accessible through the gallery. Autosave FTW!
We’ve praised Qik several times here at the Nokia blog, and here’s yet another Qik post. On my way home, I started streaming live while driving and noticed a question popped out in my screen. I replied and a short live conversation proceeded! This is a feature that not many phones are capable of.
