Organize, find, and upload your videos. Clipstart complements your photo application to give you a place that is designed for home movies.

Import your videos, tag, search, and upload with one click to Flickr, Vimeo, and YouTube. You can even quickly upload a trimmed portion of a video without needing to save a new copy. If you have dozens or hundreds of short videos from an iPhone or Flip video camera, Clipstart provides the workflow to finally make sense of them.

"Clipstart does for video what iTunes and iPhoto do for music and photos, respectively. It provides a central library for storing video clips, letting you name and tag them, play them back, trim them, and even upload them to video-sharing sites." - Dan Moren, Macworld (3.5 mice)

"Back before iPhoto existed, I used to store all my digital photos in folders by hand, using the Finder as the management tool. That's what I was doing for Flip clips before Clipstart, and at this point, I can't imagine going back." - John Gruber, Daring Fireball
