LONDON, UK—SEPTEMBER 4, 2007—Hands-On Mobile™, the world's leading developer of connected games and applications today announces the launch of Yatta Video, a mobile video sharing service, with SFR in France. Now in just a few clicks, mobile users can submit a video that other users can download and rate. Anyone who submits a video also has the opportunity to earn money: The more that their videos are viewed and rated, the more money they can make.
Yatta Video's intuitive interface makes it really quick and easy to send a video: Users simply send their clip to Yatta via MMS. Yatta's moderation process ensures all videos are checked before they go live for download. The clips are then organised into different easily searchable categories. Once categorised, users simply search, download and leave their comments rating the videos.
Each video download costs between 50 euro cents and one euro, depending on the category and content type. The director (the person submitting the video) earns 10% of the download price each time his video is downloaded by another user. Once the director hits 15 euros in earnings then Yatta Video sends their payment via Paypal.
"Yatta Video is an innovative and original service," said Paul Colback, Lifestyle Director at Hands-On Mobile. "It offers a quality service to all fans of video sharing thanks to the moderation of content and an excellent payment process which gives a strong incentive for users to submit great videos. Everyone can have fun with Yatta Video, either through experiencing great content or submitting content and taking the opportunity to make money and grab a little fame!"
"We're happy to include Yatta in our services on Vodafone live as it reflects an innovative approach to the community market on mobile by rewarding the directors of the most downloaded videos," said Thibault Demartial, responsible for Community Services at SFR.
