Could Yahoo and Flickr be about to take on the might of Google and YouTube on their homeground?

The internet giant has announced it is adding video sharing capabilities to its photo sharing Flickr service. Members of the Flickr pro service, which costs USD25 a year, can view and upload personal video clips to share them with other users, while those using the free version of the service will be able to view them too.

The new feature will work in a similar way to the Flickr photo service. Users can upload videos to their photostream and decide their privacy settings to allow friends, family or the wider Flickr community to see. They will also be able to embed their videos into a third-party website.

However, YouTube may not have anything to fear just yet. The new feature will only support clips of up to 90 seconds in length and 150MB in size.
