Similar to the Flixn widget that we discussed last year, Twango launched a webcam widget that uses Flash to record webcam messages.
Like Flixn, Twango’s widget does not require membership for use of the widget. Twango does add the ability to save video to a Twango account if you are a member though – making it a great way to easily create short videoblogs. YouTube offers a similar feature, Quick Capture.
Unlike Flixn, this is not an ad supported service. One of my personal “concerns” with Twango is that there is no evident business model (and if there is one, they aren’t putting it into action). This is the perfect opportunity to put in post-roll ads and get a bit of value off what is surely a bandwidth hogging application. Still though, a quick and easy way to get your message across to family, friends, and co-workers!
