Vine now lets you embed your 6-second clips on websites

Your 6-second masterpieces can now find a home online, thanks to the ability to embed them on sites.

Viners rejoice -- you can now embed your 6-second mini-movie masterpieces on websites. The Twitter-owned service has just added the functionality, it announced in a blog post.

If you want to give your movies a home on a site, you'll just have to enter some simple code. You can choose from three sizes: 320 pixels, 480 pixels, or 600 pixels. Choosing the "simple" option will embed just the video, while the "postcard" one will retain the clip's original format, complete with text description and location.

Or you can embed your clip using the iOS app, which has just been updated to include the feature. Tap the ellipsis in the bottom-right corner, then 'Share this post', then 'Embed'. It might not work on all sites though, so best check before you start shouting about it too much.

Head to CNET's US site and you'll see our very own Kent German's brief retrospective of old mobile phones. It's like a sped-up shuffle down memory lane.

Vine launched a couple of months ago, but is still only for iOS. Hopefully Android users will get a version soon. It's been a massive hit, with 6-second clips springing up everywhere. The new Wolverine film even had its very own trailer on the service. At least it didn't give away the whole story, like many trailers.

If you fancy seeing what people are making vids of, a site called Vinepeek will give you a glimpse. It's pretty addictive viewing, though I don't want to be held responsible if anyone posts anything not safe for work. Viewer discretion is advised, as they used to say at the start of World's Scariest Police Chases.
