The nonprofit software company Mozilla today launched Popcorn Maker, a tool that allows users to add their own content to any video.
Users can add photos, maps, links and social media feeds directly from their browser, according to Mozilla.
“Until now, video on the web has been stuck inside a little black box. Popcorn Maker changes that, making video work like the rest of the web: hackable, linkable, remixable, and connected to the world around it,” project director Brett Gaylor said today at the company’s Mozfest conference in London.
“It’s essentially a web page that makes other web pages,” Gaylor explained.
Mozilla has published a guide to the kinds of projects users can undertake with Popcorn Maker. The list includes basic instructions.
