Eye-Fi spies video on YouTube

What Eye-Fi did for photos it's now doing for video.

This the card used for the photo version of Eye-Fi, but the video version will likely look similar.

For the last year or so Eye-Fi SD cards have allowed users to wirelessly upload photos straight from their digital cameras to their hard drives and photo sharing services like Flickr and Webshots. Now Eye-Fi is applying its technology to videos and YouTube.

At CES this week, Eye-Fi, inc. announced that it is developing a way for users to wirelessly upload their videos straight from their digital cameras to YouTube. There will be no need to dock your camera or even turn on a computer before millions of users are watching a video you probably had no intention of showing to anyone except the person you filmed it with. Well that's my fear anyway. Not that I shoot inappropriate videos...I'm just looking out for all you folks that do.

The company plans to implement the feature the same way it has for photos: through an SD card. Eye-Fi says it is designing the service to fully support HD video, which YouTube now also supports.

Eye-Fi, Inc will be demoing the feature this week at CES.
