Givit Overwhelmed By FlipShare Users
San Diego-based Givit, the online video sharing service kicked off by VMIX Thursday, reported last night that it is seeing "temporary delays" due to overwhelming demand for the service. The company said, in a blog post, that the response was "overwhelming" for the service, which caused its services to be a "little slow". Givit announced yesterday that it would help former Cisco FlipShare users to port their videos over to its own, online video sharing and storage site. Cisco is in the process of closing down its Flip Video business, and as part of that is planning on shutting down FlipShare, the service which allowed Flip users to share and store videos shot from the once-popular devices. Givit said any delays were temporary, while it is "setting up a bunch more tables and firing up a few more grills".
