Locayta Launches Video Web Service And Announces First Client


May 27, 2008, Press Dispensary. (pronounced “Flavio”) is a new video service aimed at website operators who wish to enable user generated video content on their sites but don’t want the cost or hassle of setting up the technical infrastructure., a leading UK lifestyle social network and community for people aged over 35, has become the first client to sign up for the service, enhancing its offering to users by enabling them to share video clips with family, friends and other internet users.

The FLVio web service handles the uploading, transcoding and storage of almost any video file format. Videos are re-encoded into flash video and then served from the FLVio infrastructure. The FLVio service integrates with a website by means of a simple API, which is highly configurable.

FLVio has been designed to operate as a ‘hands-off’ web service and integrates with websites by means of a simple API, designed around open standards such as HTTP, XML and REST principles. Website developers are able to integrate with FLVio and provide video functionality to their users with little effort. FLVio also includes a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to provide the most efficient delivery service. CDNs accelerate content delivery by automatically caching content as close to the end user as possible.

Andre Brown, CEO of FLVio parent company Locayta Limited said: “FLVio offers a simple way to provide substantial enhancements to a social networker's experience. It's enabled Wanobe to enter Facebook territory at a fraction of normal development costs and we've had a lot of positive feedback from our initial testing.”

David Noble, founder of, comments: “What I like about this service is that I can enable video on my site whilst keeping full control over the content and the user experience.”
