Video support in Flickr Mobile

Starting with version 0.9.5, we added video support in Flickr Mobile.
You can:

  • Play any online video (if your Android device support that particular format)
  • Download any online video. The downloaded videos will be visible in the Gallery app (and any photography app supporting videos)
  • Upload your local videos to Flickr. Please note that some 3GP video files recorded on Nexus devices may not be recognized by Flickr. MPEG/MP4 video uploads seem to work without problems.
In thumbnail view, you can differentiate the videos by looking for the the usual "Play" icon.

You can download Flickr Mobile from:

Flickr Mobile - First Relase

Flickr Mobile is available on both Google Play and Amazon AppStore.

Favorites section with the main menu expanded, on Nexus 7

Get it on Google Play

Main features:
  • Photostream - view and manage the photos in your Flickr photostream. You can download photos, add photos to photosets, add photos to a group, share, view/add comments or delete photos.
  • Photosets - view and manage the photos in your Flickr photosets. You can create new photosets, delete existing ones or remove photos from photosets.

  • Favorites - manage your favorite Flickr photos: add or remove favorites, add photos to galleries, download them to your SD card or share them.
  • Contacts - add or remove contacts, view their photostream, photosets, favorites and galleries.
