Asterpix – annotate your video footage and make it work harder for you


Asterpix. A rather clever service which lets you annotate your video footage with hyperlinks and information which pop up while the video is running. Adding text and stuff to a video is super simple, just select a video from any standard source like YouTube etc, and run through it while clicking on the Add Note button wherever you want an annotation. It works well and is pretty user friendly, although it would be nice to have slightly more formatting flexibility for the info boxes. I did a short demo using a video about charging an iPod with an onion which took about 2 minutes. Cool stuff. The annotated videos are accessed via the Asterpix service, so I’m not sure whether that’s a copyright issue or not, but we’ll leave that one to the legal eagles.


Asterpix enables users to easily create hypervideos and share them through websites, blogs and email. Analogous to hypertext, hypervideo provides an interactive experience by allowing viewers to select objects of interest to get more information or navigate the video.
