After announcing in December that that no new videos could be uploaded, but that they will be keeping the Jumpcut site up and running for the foreseeable future. Yahoo has finally decided in shutting down of their video service Jumpcut. From an email sent out to its users Yahoo says that the future of their video service ends in June.
Yahoo's letter to its users
" Dear Jumpcut user,
After careful consideration, we will be officially closing the Jumpcut.com site on June 15, 2009. This was a difficult decision to make, but it’s part of the ongoing prioritization efforts at Yahoo!
Very soon, we’ll be releasing a software utility that will allow you to download the movies you created on Jumpcut to your computer. We’ll send instructions to this email address when the download utility is available.
Once you download your movies, you may choose to upload them to another site such as Flickr, which now allows video uploads. You can find out more here: http://www.flickr.com/explore/video/
Thanks for your understanding and thanks for being a part of Jumpcut.
The Jumpcut Team"
Jumpcut is one of the popular video editing tools bought by Yahoo in 2006. Its sad to see it die :(
