Flickr, an online photo sharing website launched “Video on Flickr” — an online video sharing service for Pro members. Now, Flickr’s paying members can upload and share video clips of about 90 seconds and 150MB. While that should cover the videos you shoot on your digital camera, which are often limited to 90 seconds or less anyway, it's hard to imagine music videos, video blogs, or other YouTube-style content taking Flickr by storm with this limitation in place.

But the move makes some sense if you think about that 90 second limit on your digital camera. In the press release, Yahoo! claims 40 percent of survey respondents use their cameras to capture short videos, but 55 percent of them only share those videos with friends on their camera. Today's move lets Flickr users upload and share everything on their digital camera, including photos and videos.

Videos will show up in users' photostreams, and can be managed just like images, with tags, privacy settings, and other controls. At launch, video will be available in 8 languages: English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Spanish, and traditional Chinese.
