The service will only take 90 seconds of video at up to 150mb for starters, which is fine. There are other options for longer video, and as Arrington wrote, “The short clips are a perfect compliment to event photos….”

Written at 3:45 p.m.: Or are they? I just wasted a good 15 minutes trying to figure it out after reading blog posts on both CNET’s WebWare and TechCrunch “announcing” the launch of Flickr Video hosting (complete with samples).
