Mozilla Popcorn Maker is a tool which allows online video to be repurposed and made more 'interactive'. I learned about it today from this post by Neil Mehta.
This is a very simple edit of the 1st part of google hangout I did last week with Eve Purdy.
Was this an easy to use tool?There is certainly a learning curve- and it took me a few hours to edit this very short video. In part because it doesn't seem very stable of Chrome as it crashed a few times. So I don't think it is something that will have widespread take-up just yet, but I may be wrong!
The next thing I want to do is see how long it would take me to have done this same editing within YouTube itself. And then I might try adding some of the fancy features in Popcorn Maker .. eg links out.
Of course as Popcorn Maker themselves have tweeted the main advantage is that someone else can take what I have done and remix it and make it better.
@amcunningham thx for trying out Popcorn, main advantage besides hyperlinks are ability for others to remix and improve makes. Enjoy! :)

Maybe Eve Purdy will have a go herself!
