umundo.com – by Hexlet LLC, a web 2.0 technology company based in Fremont California, and founded by experts of both web and mobile technologies. Umundo aims at providing consumers a unique service, subscription-free with their cell phones: send instantly video clip direct from the phone to popular sites such as MySpace, my Yahoo, Google, iTunes for easy viewing and sharing by family members and friends of the sender.

What it does:: The application lets you send video you capture on your mobile phone to video@umundo.com and then, simply by entering your phone number on the site you can view the video online or cooler, grab the code that will allow you to embed your video in other pages, like your MySpace profile.

No account creation needed

Similar to:: Abazab.com, which is a more thorough implementation of the concept. under closed group beta

1. Capture clip or picture with your cell phone
2. Send it to video@umundo.com via MMS or email 3. Publish on My Yahoo!, iTunes, Google, MySpace to share on the web with family and friends

If one uploads through an email, a support mail arrives with the url to ur personalumundo page.
Confusion:: If the links to the clips show only on my personalized page (which I see only if I log in), then how do I share it with everyone ?
