Mozilla's Popcorn Maker: a drag-and-drop tool for mashup interactive video

Brett Gaylor from Mozilla sez,

Sunday at the Mozilla Festival in London, Mozilla launched the 1.0 version of their new Popcorn Maker tool, a free web app that makes video pop with interactivity, context and the magic of the web. Popcorn Maker makes it easy to enhance, remix and share web video.

Using Popcorn Maker’s simple drag and drop interface, you can add live content to any video — photos, maps, links, social media feeds and more. All right from your browser. The result is a new way to tell stories on the web, with videos that are rich with context, full of links, and unique each time you watch them.

“Until now, video on the web has been stuck inside a little black box,” says Mozilla’s Director of Popcorn, Brett Gaylor. “Popcorn Maker changes that, making video work like the rest of the web: hackable, linkable, remixable, and connected to the world around it.”


  1. This is excellent, would be nice to incorporate mediagoblin sources also, this would make a nice frontend for the free media CMS and help decentralise video distribution.

  2. Nice idea but it said “Your media seems to be taking a long time to load. Review your media URL(s) or continue waiting.” forever when I tried to import a vimeo vid.
