Aug 8th, 2006 | By | Category: Mobile Podcasting

Umundo, a start-up specializing in automatic content distribution technologies, has announced a new free service that lets you take video clips taken with mobile devices and publish them for viewing on Apple’s Video iPod.

Umundo is designed to work directly with any mobile phone without additional software. Video clips and pictures are published to and viewed on popular web properties such as MySpace, My Yahoo!, Google and iTunes.

“A Umundo user can subscribe to mobile podcasts and will automatically receive and sync to his or her Video iPod clips and photographs sent by friends from their mobile phones,” said Prashant Parekh, founder and CEO of the company. ” In addition, consumers can utilize the personal content sharing capability offered by Umundo on several popular web sites.”

Video clips and pictures from camera phones and mobile devices can be sent directly via multimedia messaging service (MMS) or via e-mail.

“We have included viewing on a Video iPod as an option to offer more choice to the consumer; we convert the files produced by phones (3GPP and 3GPP2) to the format accepted by the iPod device (H.264), to bring a high quality video,” added Prashant. “We also enable photo pictures sharing onto the Video iPod, by helping users create an iPhoto compatible ‘photocast’.”

Umundo utilizes RSS Syndication Engine, its patent pending technology. This technology enables tagging, filtering, media format conversion and bittorrent P2P distribution, among several other features.

Umundo is a free service and doesn’t require registration or subscription. More information is available at the Umundo site.
